Discover Life, Discover Christ
The world we live in today presents us with a false reality that life purpose can be fulfilled on a search to discover one’s self. The knowledge of self has led many to an empty end with destructive and addictive behaviors, moral crisis, confusion about the truth and most importantly peace within. As Christians we understand that life begins at Calvary. The sacrifice of Christ sets us free from the bondage of sin and the process of trying to figure out the purpose and meaning of life. It’s important to know that God loves us and desires a relationship with us each of through Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells us: We all sin! — (Romans 3:23 NRSV) . . . since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…
Sin is when we break God’s law, even just once. Just because we obey the law most of the time, it is when we break it only once that we become law breakers. In Luke 10:25-28 Jesus says to love God and our neighbor as ourselves.
(Luke 10:25-28 NRSV) Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he said, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 He said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?” 27 He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” 28 And he said to him, “You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.”
Our sin is selfishness. . . loving ourselves more than God and our neighbor.
We deserve death! — (Romans 6:23 NRSV) For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. If we all sin, then we all deserve death. We are sinners now. We start paying those wages now. We feel it when we are in spiritual and emotional pain. Have you ever felt those wages?
But, Jesus has a gift for us, which is eternal life.. That begins now, too, if we receive the gift.
We can’t earn salvation or discover life in Christ; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. He knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty.
Would you like to receive the gift of eternal life?
Salvation (eternal life) is not really yours until you reach out and receive it. Do you want to receive forgiveness for your sin and receive the gift of eternal life? It requires an act of faith, which is a conscious decision followed by an act.
Jesus has the gift of eternal life for us! — (John 1:12 NRSV) But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God. When we receive that gift Jesus has for us, he gives us the power to become God’s children now. And, after we die, we live with Him as God’s family.
The most important thing is that you receive the gift. And you can receive this gift and Discover Life and Discover this new life in Christ by praying this prayer with us.
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead for someone like me. I ask you to come into my heart and help me to change my selfish and sinful ways. I ask you to come into my heart and be my Lord and savior. Amen.
