In order to be ready for what’s next—you must realize that you need salvation, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). You must realize that without Jesus Christ, there is no salvation, “For there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). You must realize that you cannot earn salvation, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9). You must simply trust what Jesus has done for you, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31).
Turn in faith to Jesus today and He will take away your burden of sin—no matter how great it is. Only then will you know the One who holds the future in His hands, and be ready for what’s next.
