Dead Yet Living (GLMX #472)
This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #472 titled, “Dead Yet Living” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.
When a person is declared dead, his lifeless body is wheeled into the mortuary and prepared for burial. His loved ones mourn and cry over this loss, some holding to memories of great times, some go into deep depression and never recover.
But have you ever stopped to question, “is everyone walking and talking truly alive?” I mean, are they alive in Jesus? The Bible talks about the fact that man is alive because of God’s breath. We have a connection with Him, but we also have a choice to give Him space so He can make us truly alive through His Spirit.
It is sad how people live a dead life, paying so much attention to trivial things at the detriment of their soul, feeding and thriving in the body while the soul is dead in sin. A man, woman, community—even a nation—can be dead without knowing it unless they give space to the One who can make alive.
Are you alive in your thoughts? What are you thinking about presently? Could it be pornography, could it be adultery and fornication, could it even be abortion?
Jesus Christ is calling unto your heart today. He has done all for you to the extent of laying down His life on the cross. Maybe this is not the first time, maybe not the tenth time you have heard about Jesus. He offers life and eternal bliss. When a man dies here on earth, it is okay if he has made His ways right with God. However, if a man dies eternally … what a pity! What a pain.
Jesus is calling you, saying: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” Would you yield to this call so you can live on this earth in Him and also be part of an eternal bliss and peace where there is no gnashing of teeth or pain? The choice has always been yours. Please choose wisely and be on the Lord’s team.
Are you ready to choose Christ and put your trust in Him today? This life-transforming decision will be the beginning of a new life in Him.
If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour in the free pardon of your sins. Allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Jesus Christ for your souls salvation from the power of sin and from the punishment of sin in that awful place called Hell. Please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.
