The Most Important Event in History
Thereis one Designer, Engineer and Creator of the universe and all it contains, including you and me. He created us to love us. Unfortunately, we have not loved Him in return.
Rebellion... In fact, you and I have not only failed to acknowledge Him as our Maker and Father, we have actively rebelled against Him. Through many immoral and amoral acts, thoughts and attitudes, we continue to grieve the One Who cares for us most.
There is a word for this rebellion. The word has been misused so often, its meaning has been perverted, sometimes even to mean something good. But rebellion against our Creator is anything but good. It is what has traditionally been called "sin," and it has caused a split between us and the One Who designed us and loves us.
God's "dilemma" Because He loves us, He cannot stand to allow this split to remain. Unlike human love, his love is perfect.
But unlike human justice, His justice is also perfect. And a perfectly just God cannot allow sin to go unpunished without ceasing to be perfectly just. Perfection is His nature and He simply cannot go against His nature without ceasing to be God. So he cannot allow us do whatever we want and just say, "Oh I can let this one slide." The guilty being allowed to carry on doing evil is not justice.
But because of His perfect love, He cannot stand to be apart from us either. Now He has a dilemma. (That is, for you and I it would be a dilemma. But God knows exactly what He's going to do). Perfect justice demands a penalty but perfect love demands reconciliation.
So He decided to pay the price Himself. He came to Earth in the form of a Man. He came fully man - able to feel pain, hunger and all we feel, even experience death - and yet fully God, for only God would not have His own debt to pay. And He willingly went to the cross, allowing Himself to be executed to pay the price for our sin.
The Man is Jesus Christ. He gave His life for our sakes and rose from the dead to prove His Godhood and show how we too can be raised to eternal life. Now, all who will accept His sacrifice can actually enjoy a relationship with Him here and now, as well as enjoy eternal life with Him in Heaven. As one time-honored document puts it, "The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever."
This is not a philosophy of life, but a series of facts... Traditional biblical Christianity has always been presented as a series of facts, not merely as a philosophy of life. The fact that there is one God, Creator of the universe, Who has always existed in three Persons; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The fact that mankind was separated from God by sin; the historical fact of Jesus' birth, life on Earth, death, and resurrection and the fact that this was God's plan to close that separation; the fact that faith in Jesus Christ alone is what is needed to heal the separation for each individual.
Being good is not enough No amount of good deeds will suffice, it is the faith that saves you from eternal separation with your Maker. Good deeds are a result of your faith in Christ, not the condition for entrance to Heaven. Then there is the fact that Jesus promised another Counselor, the Holy Spirit, to live in the hearts of all who seek a relationship with Him.
All these are facts, but they have no relevance to us unless we embrace them through faith by beginning a relationship with the One who paid your ransom for you...
If you would like to begin such a relationship with Jesus right now, say this with me:Father in Heaven,
I know that I am a sinner and need forgiveness.
I believe that Your Son Jesus died in my place,
to pay the penalty for my sin,
and rose again for my salvation.
I want to turn from my sin and be forgiven,
so I now ask you, Lord Jesus,
to come into my life as my Savior and my Lord.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
So if you have repented (turned away) from your sins with all your heart, asked Him into your life, and believe He died to save you, you are a Christian, bound for Heaven.
The difficulties of living as a Christian in a sinful world are many. Therefore it is essential that you seek other sincere, Bible-believing Christians to help you sustain your resolve. Both individual Christian friends and a solidly Bible-based Christian church are essential.
When asked what one must do to be saved, the Apostle Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins." Make no mistake, it is your faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for you that saves you. But the baptism is a public proclamation of your decision to renounce that sin and follow Christ.
I encourage you to find a biblically sound Christian church home, attend regularly, get to know the pastor and tell him you'd like to be baptized.
May God Bless you all.
