This is Passion Week in the Christian Religion. During this week many Christians hear about the events that were the make up Jesus’ last week on the earth.
He gives many parables during this week– as a warning to the Jewish leaders and to prepare the people for his departure from the earth. One of the concepts that Jesus repeats in His teaching is that of the son or the person who does the will of the father is the one that is rewarded. For example in Matthew21:38-31 (KJV) is it stated,
“But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work today in my vineyard. 29He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. 30And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. 31Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.”
Here Jesus is warning the Jewish leaders through a parable to be like the first son: change your mind and do as the father asks.
And so I put the same concept before you: If you did not think of Jesus as your personal Savior — change your mind. I Corinthians 15:3 says that he is one who came to” die for our sins”.
Know too, that you will according to Holy Scriptures, get no opportunity to change your mind after you die. ( Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”. )
Life is not a dress rehearsal — We only get this life to believe and life for Jesus. Take advantage now!
