Where Are You Spending Eternity?

Updated: Mar 29

Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Isaiah 55:6


Dear Lord,


We thank You and praise You for another day! Each and every day is a blessing.


With the many blessings You shower on us, the greatest blessing of them all is the gift of eternal life with You. That is the grace of all graces, and we will spend an eternity praising You for it. I pray that more people are able to see the light of the gospel so that they too can become part of Your kingdom and receive that glorious blessing.

There are people in our lives whom we love who do not yet know Jesus. They are in desperate need of Christ, and it's difficult because they simply don’t know that they don’t know. Many are blinded by Satan, and their hearts are hardened against the Truth. I pray that You help us to fearlessly share the gospel with those people we love, as well as with strangers, when given the golden opportunity to do so by You. Lord, we ask You to please soften their hearts and open their spiritual eyes and ears to hear the word of Christ, in order to fully receive it. We know that true faith comes by hearing, and hearing comes by Your Word. But we also know that it’s only by Your grace that people are able to come to the knowledge of the Truth, where they love the Truth and desire to obey it. Please help those who are spiritually blind - to see, Lord.

In order for people to understand why the gospel is such tremendously good news to them, we must first be made aware of our own sinful nature and how we all are in great need of a Savior in Christ. We must also understand the incomprehensible gulf that’s between fallen mankind and the absolute holiness and purity of God. There are no "good" people based upon God's standards. The truth is there has only been one good person to walk this earth, and that is the person of Jesus Christ. He was sinless, absolute perfection. But us, we are fallen, far from perfect. We all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. I pray that we all may be utterly humbled - in comparison to the greatness of God, but even more so to His loveliness.

I pray that the certainty of the gospel and the love that we have for people helps drive us to warn people and to share it with those in need. Now is the time to seek the Lord when we still can. His arms are still outstretched to us in this world, which will be over in the blink of an eye compared to the magnitude of eternity. I pray that the eyes of those hearts be opened to the Truth before the door shuts forever.


Lord, we know that we can’t save anybody. Preaching is the sacrament of salvation, but only You do the saving. In the end, salvation is the sovereign work of God. But part of Your sovereign plan includes the preaching of the gospel and prayer duty that we as Your children are all called to do for the building of Your kingdom. It is our assigned duty in this life and the will of God to pray for others and to share the gospel with them. We ask that You help us with this magnificent calling on our lives so that we may be a blessing to others, all for Your glory.


I pray that You grace us with love, courage, and strength to share the gospel boldly, in loving Truth, even though we know the Truth is likely to offend. We also know the Truth is the only thing that saves. Let’s have faith over fear, and let’s be driven by the certainty of the Gospel Truth and the love in our hearts to share the light of Jesus Christ.


All glory belongs to Your, my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.


In Jesus' Name, I pray Amen.


Love, Jenna

 

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the gospel, which is the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4


for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:13-16
