please take a few minutes to watch this message. God bless you.
The Good News!
Have you ever felt life is empty, void of purpose, useless or even pointless?
These feelings are quite common.
So why do so many feel this way? The Bible says that “all have sinned and fallen short of
the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). What that means is that we have all separated
ourselves from God, and we need God as a child needs his or her parents. You may ask:
how did I separate myself from God? Well, God has given us a conscience, He has told us
the difference between right and wrong and we all have chosen wrong at one time or
another. We have all ‘sinned’ by doing this, like lying, hating, lusting, cheating etc.
So what’s the good news? The Good News is this: although God is just and obligated to not
only separate us from Himself, but destroy us for our sin, He loves us and He sent His
Son Jesus to take our punishment and die in our place (John 3:16). Let me explain, as we
said earlier we have all made mistakes. These mistakes have separated us from God, left us
empty and left us so guilty that God in His justice should destroy us. Not wanting to
destroy us, God made Himself into a man (Jesus); He lived as a man and even was tempted
to do evil like we do, and once the correct time had come He (Jesus) was crucified and
put to death for you and me (1John 2:2). If you are willing to turn from sin, accept that
sacrifice for yourself and live for God, Jesus will give you a new life (2 Corinthians 5:17),
restoring your fellowship with God and sparing you from the judgment that you
(like all of us) deserve (Romans 2:16, 2 Timothy 4:1).
“Lord Jesus, I recognize that I have sinned. I ask you Lord to forgive me my sin. I choose
to turn from sin and follow you. I thank you Lord that you died in my place. I thank you
for forgiving me my sin. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”
(“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God
raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9)).
