Is Bitterness the Only Option?
For those who do not believe in the world to come, bitterness is indeed the only option.
But for those who believe in an eternal glorious life, ruled by a God who is higher, wiser, and more powerful than all, these people have hope—the true, godly hope that they will see their loved ones again, reunited in His loving presence. To ensure this hope, you must surrender your life to Him and commit yourself to serving Him and learning more about Him.
Jesus died as the payback for the sins of all people; He took the blame. But Jesus rose from the dead. He defeated death and now lives eternally so that you, too, can experience eternal life with Him. He loves you that much! Through Christ you can be reconciled to God, no matter what you have done in the past. Repent (turn from) your sins today and turn straight into His loving arms.
The Bible offers a simple plan of salvation to those who come with a sincere heart: “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved” (Romans 10:9-10).
Lord Jesus, I believe that You are the Son of God and that You died on the cross to save me from my sins. I turn away from my sinful ways right now and surrender myself to You. Thank you, Amen.
