Dr. No

Dr NO is alive and well on planet earth!  He says NO to everything, even that which is right.  Take the Gospel offer of Jesus Christ, for example.  When this comes to him, what does he and his followers say?  "NO.  Not for me.  Not my thing.  Not interested."

Dr NO has no time for the Gospel, no time for Christ, no time for his soul's salvation, no time for crucial eternal matters.  He is against everything, even the good and the true.  He has no care for the consequences of his decisions, and matters not what the result will be.  In fact, he does not believe there will be any bad results to his decisions.  He still says NO to Christ and the Gospel.

Is your real name Dr NO?  Are you a NO sayer to Christ your Saviour?  Do you say NO to heaven because you are saying YES to this world and to sin and rebellion against God?  That is what every NO sayer is actually saying.

I am calling upon you to change the record from NO to YES.  Why do I say this?  Because God loves you and sent His only begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, to die on Calvary to save your never-dying soul and to bring you to heaven.  Recognise your lostness because of your sin and cry out to Christ for mercy.  Christ died as the Redeemer of the world (Calvin's beautiful phrase), the Saviour of mankind, and that means He died for you, too.  Christ loves you and died for you, bearing your sin in His own body on the Cross.

"The Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all," (Isa.53:6).  Christ died as "the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world," (1 Jn.2:2).  He now calls on all men everywhere to repent.  He does not want you to perish in your sins.  Every Dr NO will perish in his or her sins. God "is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance," (2 Pet.3:9).  

That includes YOU.  Do you see that?  You need not be lost in hell forever.

There's a way back to God from the dark paths of sin; 
There's a door that is open and all may go in; 
At Calvary's Cross is where you begin 
When you come as a sinner to Jesus.

Will you come to Him right now?  You'll find Him at Calvary.  Admit you're a sinner and that you deserve nothing but wrath and judgement from God.  Cry out for Him to be merciful to you as you put your trust in Christ alone for your eternal well-being.
