There are natural laws that control the world in which we live in. There are also spiritual laws which determine your relationship with God.
God Loves You And Offers A Wonderful Plan For Your Life
John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
John 10:10 gives us the reason why Jesus came, “I have come that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
Not all people are experiencing that abundant life because….
Man is sinful and separated from God, thus He cannot know and experience God’s love and plan for His life.
Humanity is tainted by sin and is therefore separated from God. As a result, we cannot know God’s wonderful plan for our lives. Romans 3:23 affirms this, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 6:23 gives us the consequence of sin, “the wages of sin is death.” God created us to have fellowship with Him. However, humanity brought sin into the world and is therefore separated from God. We have ruined the relationship with Him that God intended for us to have.
The third law gives us the only answer to this problem…..
Jesus Christ is the ONLY way a man can reach God. He died for us. Through Him you can know God and experience His love and plan for your life.
Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for our sin. Through Jesus Christ, we can have our sins forgiven and restore a right relationship with God. Romans 5:8 tells us, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this, While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 informs us of what we need to know and believe in order to be saved, “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures and that He was buried and that He rose again the third day according to the Scripture.”
Jesus Himself declares that He is the only way of salvation in John 14:6, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
It is not enough just to know these three laws….
We Must Each Receive Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord; Then we can know and experience God’s love and plan for our lives.
John 1:12 describes this for us, “But to all who received Him, who believed in His name, He gave power to become children of God.
Acts 16:31 says it very clearly, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved!”
We can be saved by grave alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone.”(Ephesians 2:8-9)
It is not enough just to agree with Christ’s teachings. Receiving Christ means turning to God from self (repenting). We trust Christ to come into our lives and forgive our sins. We let Him make us what He wants us to be.
Revelation 3:20 (Christ speaking) “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into Him.”
YOU CAN RECEIVE CHRIST RIGHT NOW
If you want to trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior, pray this prayer right now. He is more concerned with what you mean in your heart than in words you say. This prayer is simply a way to express to Jesus your faith in Him and thank Him for providing for your salvation.
Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins, I open the door of my life and receive you as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life; take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person you want me to be. Amen
NOW THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED CHRIST
Christ came into your life – Revelation 3:20 & Colossians 1:27
