Talk To Me
= “a stunning, damaging, or shattering effect from a hard blow”
(Merriam-Webster’s 11th Collegiate Dictionary)
Every one of us has taken a hard hit.
In one sense, the shattering blow
In another sense, the blow gave us a concussion that has made us
or unable to
Every one of us has been hit with the
shattering blow of sin.
“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered
into the world, and death by sin; and so DEATH PASSED UPON ALL MEN, for
that ALL HAVE SINNED” (Holy Bible, Romans 5:12, KJV).
That is why we must be
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CANNOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD”
(Holy Bible, John 3:3, KJV).
We need to be
“And you hath he QUICKENED, who were
DEAD in trespasses and SINS” (Holy Bible, Ephesians 2:1, KJV).
Because of this fatal spiritual blow, we do
not naturally think clearly as we should.
God says, “For my thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD” (Holy
Bible, Isaiah 55:8, KJV).
“The wicked, through the pride of his
countenance, will not seek after God: God IS NOT IN ALL HIS THOUGHTS”
(Holy Bible, Psalms 10:4, KJV).
Is God ever in your thoughts?
Do you talk about your job, your car, your
Does God have any place in your life?
“For what shall it profit a man, if he
shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Holy Bible, Mark
Instead of repenting of our sin and going to
God and talking to Him about it, we tend to naturally try and run away
from Him — just like Adam and Eve did after they had sinned.
“And they heard the voice of the LORD
God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife
HID THEMSELVES from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of
the garden” (Holy Bible, Genesis 3:8, KJV).
You, too, need to stop
and talk to God.
You need to talk to God about salvation now,
because you do not know what might happen to you tomorrow (or even yet
“Whereas ye know not what shall be on
the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth
for a little time, and then vanisheth away” (Holy Bible, James 4:14,
“Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may
(Holy Bible, Proverbs 27:1, KJV).
“Behold, NOW is the accepted time; behold, NOW is the day of salvation”
(Holy Bible, 2 Corinthians 6:2, KJV).
“For whosoever shall CALL upon the
name of the Lord shall be saved” (Holy Bible, Romans 10:13, KJV).
You need to talk to the Lord about your
desire to repent (your desire to turn from your sin and have Him cleanse
you and give you a new life).
“I tell you, Nay: but, except ye
repent, ye shall all likewise perish”
(Holy Bible, Luke 13:3, KJV).
“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins
be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like
crimson, they shall be as wool”
(Holy Bible, Isaiah 1:18, KJV).
Do not delay — talk to God.
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth
the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised
him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto
righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever
believeth on him shall not be ashamed” (Holy Bible, Romans 10:9-11,
Calling out to God in repentance and faith
will bring salvation, but that is not the end of our talking to God.
God wants us to come to Him and tell
Him all of our cares.
“Casting all your care upon him; for
he careth for you” (Holy Bible, 1 Peter 5:7, KJV).
God says, “Talk to Me.”
That is what
is — talking to God.
Have you ever had someone say to you,
“Would you please quit talking and be quiet!”
Well that is not what God says.
He says, “Pray without ceasing” (Holy
Bible, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, KJV).
God tells us to talk to Him constantly.
That does not mean using vain
repetitions or chants, but in meaningful conversation.
“But when ye pray, use not vain
repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard
for their much speaking”
(Holy Bible, Matthew 6:7, KJV).
When you have a problem, how many times have
you talked to yourself about it (silently or aloud)?
How many times have you talked to
other people about it?
Well God wants you to talk to Him
“Be careful for nothing; but in every
thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be
made known unto God” (Holy Bible, Philippians 4:6, KJV).
As this verse says, when you pray, make sure that you THANK GOD for all
that He has done.
Are you like the man on the front cover—down
in your lost condition?
Rise up in repentance and faith and
trust the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior.
Are you a Christian that has fainted?
Rise up and pray.
“And he spake a parable unto them to
this end, that MEN OUGHT ALWAYS TO PRAY, AND NOT TO FAINT” (Holy Bible,
Luke 18:1, KJV).
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”
(Holy Bible, 1 John 1:9, KJV).
“Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe that you are
the Son of God; that you are God Almighty in the flesh, the Creator of
heaven and earth.
I do believe that you are the only
Savior; that you died on the cross for me, and gave your precious blood
to pay my sin debt; and then you arose from the grave the third day.
I do now repent of my sins, and
receive you as my Savior.
Please forgive me, and save my soul.
Please raise up my life from sin and
shame, and use it now for your glory.
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
I just asked
and I desire to now live for Him.
God wants you to
now openly confess Him by
under the water at a good Bible-preaching church, and to faithfully
attend the services there.
