(2 Peter 3:9) The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
We become a Christian when we surrender our life to God and receive the gift of salvation Jesus achieved for us. Jesus surrendered his life to pay for our sins. So, even God has experienced surrender. When we come to the place of giving our lives to him, he is faithful to receive us as his children, and he gives us his Spirit to seal us for eternity. Thus begins our intimate relationship with our creator.
I think it’s important to understand that this relationship is offered to all of us. As the above scripture makes clear, it is his will that we’d all receive salvation and eternal life. The only thing standing in the way of an intimate relationship with God and eternal life is our will.
If you haven’t surrendered to God, the Easter Celebration is a great time to surrender your will to him. You can trust him because he gave his life for you.
(Romans 6:23) For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
