knowing, believing and accepting Jesus Christ
The most important meaning of life is knowing, believing and accepting Jesus Christ.
Bible is the revelation of the Truth from the one true God. The bible says: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men.”John 1:1-4
God is Truth, the source of righteous and love. Because of His love, God created man (male and female) in His own image with a living soul. God blessed them and said to them to subdue and rule over the earth.
However, all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
God is righteous and the wage of sin is death. Death results in eternal separation of our soul with the everlasting and merciful God. The world is cursed because of mankind’s sin. It is filled with injustice and hardship.
For all have sinned, no matter how we try to rid of our sin, and do good deeds, our actions are to no avail. We are unable to save ourselves because of our sinful nature.
Is there a way out of this?
Jesus Christ came as our Lord and Saviour .
Jesus is God manifest in flesh, God’s one and only Son. He dwelled among us, full of grace and truth. Jesus is the only one free of sin, thereby conquering evil, and is the only mediator who can deliver us from sin (death).
God is righteous, God is love. He loves us and He wants to save us. God prepared for us an atonement.
Jesus carried and bore our sins on the cross. A holy, sinless God died for sinful human, thereby paid the price of sin.
Jesus conquered death. He was raised from death and ascended into heaven. We await for His second coming and judgement. When we hear the gospel and believe, we are marked with a Seal of the promised Holy Spirit.
Let us acknowledge our sins, repent from our sins. To be sanctified, becoming righteous. Through Jesus Christ we have eternal life and live together with our Father.
This is God’s grace, and this is the gospel:
“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. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”Bible: John 3:16-18
Dear friend, through faith, you can accept God’s salvation, by saying the following prayer:
“Dear Heavenly Father, I admit that I am a sinner and I want to repent my sins. Please forgive my sins. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins on the cross and rose on the third day from the dead. I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour, and commit my whole life to You. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen”
