Every religion in the world says that we have to "do something" or "be something" in order to earn God's approval and forgiveness, except for Christianity. The Bible says that, while we were still sinners God loved us and sent His Son to die for us in order to pay the debt that we owed for our sin. God Himself came to rescue us! (Romans 5:8, Genesis 1:26, John 14:9, Colossians 1:15-23, Hebrews 1:1-3)
The Bible says that we are all separated from God and in need of a Savior, because of sin. “No one is righteous, no, not one… for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God… and the penalty for sin is death... and we are dead in our sin." (Romans 3:10 and Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:1-3)
If we are dead, there is nothing we can do. We need someone else to make us alive again, someone to rescue us. Good news...
"...But the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord…" (Romans 6:23)
"...But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved...through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." (Ephesians 2:4-10)
A true gift can not be earned. It must simly be accepted. Only those who accept God's free gift of forgiveness will receive it. The good things we do can never undo the bad that we have done. The good things we do can never undo the curse that is and has been on the earth since Adam and Eve decided to trust in themselves and not in God. See (Genesis 1-3)
GOOD NEWS! It doesn't matter what you have done. You are not too "bad" for God to save. Though our sins are as scarlet, He will wash us white as snow. Jesus is the only one who can. It is the Father's great pleasure because he loves us.
We are all alone before God and we are accountable to Him for our life. The Bible says that "if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness." (John 1:9) Confess means to agree with God that we are sinners and acknowledge our need for a Savior.
God also assures us that once we are His, no one can change that or take us away from Him. He has redeemed us forever. He keeps us. We are sealed and secure by His Spirit. (John 6:35-40, John 10:28-30, Ephesians 1:13)
What a GOOD Father! God loves His children and has come to rescue them. He did not leave us all alone. He came to be with us... to sacrifice Himself for us so that we might one day live again forever with Him. He came to save us, to bring us back to Him... (Genesis 1:26, John 14:9, Colossians 1:15-23, Hebrews 1:1-3)
The Bible says that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved… For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved… For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life… And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. (Romans 10:9-10, Romans 10:13, John 3:16, Acts 4:12)
Not only will He save us individually from our sin, but His death and ressurection also will rescue and renew the entire Creation one day! And on that day, finally there will be no more suffering, death, tears, pain, sadness, and brokenness. Everything will be made right. We will do life on the new earth (Revelation 21:1) without the constraints of the curse of sin and death. We will live forever with God, which is how he always intened for things to be. Humans were never meant to die... The earth was not meant to degenerate and decay... God did not make things that way origianlly. The curse will be broken. All will be restored.
We cannot even imagine what God has prepared on that day for those who love Him! What a glorious day that will be! Thank you Jesus! (1 Corinthians 2:9, Romans 8:22, Revelation 21:4-5, Revelation 22:1-5, John 17:3)
