It All Begins Here

Have you thought about your purpose of existence? Do you believe in the Supreme Being who created everything? Do you know how special you are?

God and Man

According to the Book of Genesis in the Bible, man was created in the image and likeness of God (Gen. 1:26-27). Note that when God created all the living things and creatures in the earth like plants, animals, land, etc., He created them by the words of His mouth. But when He created man, God used His loving hands and formed us in His image. The first humans, Adam and Eve, lived a perfect life in paradise until Sin came in. Their disobedience led to separation from God and created a wide gulf between God's holiness and man's sinfulness.

A Savior Came

Sin separated man from God. And all men have sinned in the eyes of God (Romans 3:23). We are all doomed to hell. And so to save mankind, God sent His only begotten Son that we may be saved (John 3:16). Jesus incarnated into man that He may die on the cross and reconcile man to God. "For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son..." (Romans 5:10-11) Being saved comes when we believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him as our Lord and Savior (John 3:16). This is where faith comes in.

Faith

Salvation is not about religion but a personal relationship with God. When we believe in Jesus and entrust our life to Him, then we will have the right to be called children of God (John 1:12). Faith is the raft that bridges between a supernatural, all-powerful God, and a frail, sinful man. Faith is the key that opens the door for man's salvation and hope of an eternal life. Have faith in Jesus Christ for He is the only way to be reconciled to the Father (John 14:6). No other name is written in heaven in which man can be saved, but only the Name of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12).

You, Yes...You!

We are not really talking about religion here. It doesn't matter anyway when the day comes that we will face God. But faith does matter. "...For whoever believes on Him (Jesus Christ) will not perish but have an everlasting life." (John 3:16) God offered the proverbial olive leaf to reconcile us sinners to Him through His Son Jesus. Are we going to take that peace offer? Are we going to reach that hand of reconciliation? God loves sinners and hates sin. It's time to leave our sinful life and seek God's forgiveness. He is faithful to forgive and cleanse us (1 John 1:9). We just need to have faith in the Son of God. Make Him our personal Lord and Savior. Then be prepared to live a life of deeper joy and peace, a life of victory through Jesus. You, yes...you. Think about it. This would be the best thing that could happen in your life. God bless you everyday!
