Placing your trust in who?
Shortly the polling stations will open, and the people of Scotland will get the opportunity to exercise their democratic right to decide on who they want to represent them in the next Scottish parliament. Recently, many candidates from across the political spectrum have put forward their argument to win your vote.
However, there is a greater decision in life that we cannot avoid, it is a personal matter asking what shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? (Matthew 27:22).
Your vote will shape the future of the next Scottish Parliament, but the choice you make concerning God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ will determine where you will be in eternity.
Dear reader the Lord Jesus has done something for you that no MSP, MP, or anyone else could; pay the penalty for sin. The Lord Jesus came into the world to die on a cross, and to take the punishment for sin that you and I deserve. Romans 5:8 says, “God demonstrated his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
In Matthew 11:28 the Lord Jesus says, “come unto me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” As a result of the death of the Lord Jesus we all now have a decision to make, and unlike the election, where there are no consequences whether we vote or not. If we chose to ignore the issue of Jesus and his death for sin, then we must pay for our own sin. But the Lord Jesus has satisfied a Holy God and is now in heaven offering everyone who places their faith in him, salvation.
Do not ignore what the Lord Jesus has done for you. Turn away from your sin which is greed, immorality, selfishness, lies and so much more, and believe in the Son of God who loved you and gave himself for you. The perfect candidate to place your trust in is a risen Saviour and now is the accepted time; now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2).
Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13). D. Johnston
