The Offer Stands

Do you want to live forever? How would you like beginning your forever life today? Don’t think that is possible? Have you heard Jesus’ teaching? Are you willing to follow Him? Are you willing to commit your life to Jesus? Are you willing to feed on Him?

There are many people in this world who think this life is all there is. They fear death. They fail to understand there is an eternal life or an eternal damnation. It is an either-or choice. It is our choice to make. The offer stands.

Jesus pleads with us to believe in Him. He begs us to follow Him. He desires us to choose Him over death. He makes His offer to us in many different ways. God, the Father, put a plan in place for us to live with Him forever.

Jesus tells us He came down from heaven to be our bread of life. He tells us He will feed us, and we will live forever. He tells of the ancestral Jews who ate the manna the Father provided after they had escaped Egypt. He states that manna would not provide the eternal life He provides. It was meant to sustain them while they journeyed to the promised land. However, it would not grant them eternal life with God. In fact, as we look back at their journey from Egypt to the promised land, we see many instances of disobedience.

Jesus came to be the offering for all eternity. He eagerly accepts us into the kingdom of God when we commit to Him. Jesus provides the food for our soul that our soul longs for. Only He can fill our true desire. Only He can be the bread of life.

I pray we all accept the offer of eternal life. I pray we accept Jesus and believe in Him. I pray each one of us will accept God’s plan for salvation. Accept the bread of life. Accept the offer. Step into the kingdom of God. Be filled by Jesus. Feed your soul.

John 6:57-58 “Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.”
