A Love Letter from Jesus
I asked Jesus, "How much do you love me?"
He said, "This much" and stretched out His hands and died.
Died for me, a fallen sinner! He died for you too.
The night before My death, you were on my mind.
How I desired to have a relationship with you,
to spend eternity with you in heaven.
Yet, sin separated you from Me and My Father.
A sacrifice of innocent blood was needed
for the payment of your sins.
The hour had come when I was to lay down my life for you.
With heaviness of heart I went out to the garden to pray.
In agony of soul I sweat, as it were, drops of blood
as I cried out to God...
"...O My Father, if it be possible,
let this cup pass from me:
nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt."
~ Matthew 26:39
While I was in the garden the soldiers came to arrest Me
even though I was innocent of any crime.
They brought Me before Pilate's hall.
I stood before My accusers.
Then Pilate took Me and scourged Me.
Lacerations cut deeply into My back as I took the beating for you.
Then the soldiers stripped me, and put a scarlet robe on Me.
They platted a crown of thorns upon My head.
Blood flowed down My face...
there was no beauty that you should desire Me.
Then the soldiers mocked Me,
saying, " Hail, King of the Jews!
They brought Me before the cheering crowd,
shouting, "Crucify Him. Crucify Him."
I stood there silently, bloody, bruised and beaten.
Wounded for your transgressions,
bruised for your iniquities.
Despised and rejected of men.
Pilate sought to release Me
but gave in to the pressure of the crowd.
"Take ye Him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him."
he said to them.
Then he delivered Me to be crucified.
You were on my mind when I carried My cross
up the lonesome hill to Golgotha.
I fell beneath its weight.
It was my love for you, and to do My Father's will
that gave Me the strength to bear beneath its heavy load.
There, I bore your griefs and I carried your sorrows
laying down My life for the sin of mankind.
The soldiers sneered giving heavy blows of the hammer
driving the nails deeply into My hands and feet.
Love nailed your sins to the cross, never to be dealt with again.
They hoisted Me up and left Me to die.
Yet, they did not take My life.
I willingly gave it.
The sky grew black. Even the sun stopped shining.
My body wracked with excruciating pain
took the weight of your sin and bore it's punishment
so that the wrath of God could be satisfied.
When all things were accomplished.
I committed My spirit into My Father's hands,
and breathed out My final words,"It is finished."
I bowed my head and gave up the ghost.
I Love you...
"Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends."
~ John 15:13
The Lord loves you!
What more could He do to prove His love to you
having given every ounce of His blood for the payment of your sins?
He desires to forgive you for every sin that you have ever committed.
He longs to have a personal relationship with you
and spend eternity with you in heaven.
Yet, if you don't believe in the Lord you're going to hell.
There's no pleasant way to say it.
The Scripture says,
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
~ Romans 3:23
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved."
~ Romans 10:9
Don't fall asleep without Jesus
until you are assured of a place in heaven.
Tonight, if you would like to receive the gift of eternal life
first you must believe in the Lord.
You have to ask for your sins to be forgiven
and put your trust in the Lord.
To be a believer in the Lord, ask for eternal life.
There's only one way to heaven and that's through the Lord Jesus.
That's God's wonderful plan of salvation.
You can begin a personal relationship with Him
by praying from your heart a prayer such as the following:
"Oh God, I'm a sinner.
I've been a sinner all of my life.
Forgive me, Lord.
I receive Jesus as my Savior.
I trust Him as my Lord.
Thank you for saving me.
In Jesus' name, Amen."
If you have received the Lord Jesus as your Savior
after reading this invitation, please let us know.
We would love to hear from you. Your first name is sufficient.
"Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved"
~ Acts 2:21b
