This is offered not as criticism but as a longing of my being to see and hear people with platforms and influence when speaking an invitation of Come to JESUS to consider making a change.
This: To acknowledge that just repeating a prayer will not save anyone.
Please begin by posing some questions.
Questions like: Is there a tugging in your soul?
Are you sensing something within you that you don’t fully understand but you know you are not right with GOD?
Are you convinced that you are a hell-deserving sinner?
Are you convinced that you need a Savior?
And do you see today that JESUS CHRIST is the only Savior?
The Only One who can take your guilt, your sin, and your shame away?
The Only One who can make you right with GOD?
Moreover that HE actually wants to save YOU?
If you can answer all these in the affirmative, you are ready to surrender to the LORDSHIP of JESUS.
You are ready to be saved.
Just Say YES.
HE WILL DO THE SAVING.
And when He does NEVER stop saying Thank You to Him.
10 As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

And the following are from the Complete Jewish Bible provided hereto via Biblegateway.com
13 The sea gave up the dead in it; and Death and Sh’ol gave up the dead in them; and they were judged, each according to what he had done.
14 Then Death and Sh’ol were hurled into the lake of fire. This is the second death — the lake of fire.
15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the Book of Life was hurled into the lake of fire.
8 But as for the cowardly, the untrustworthy, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those involved with the occult and with drugs, idol-worshippers, and all liars — their destiny is the lake burning with fire and sulfur, the second death.”
If you are uncertain of your eternal destiny and you are concerned about that – that is GOOD NEWS!
Please hear me.
Please read these foregoing Scripture passages (or perhaps others) until you are ready to say YES to JESUS.
And when you say YES with an honest and thankful heart — welcome to The Family of GOD!!
