Let us look at life in its basic form. We are born into this world. We grow up, go to school. we eventually find a job or earn a living. Have a family. Gets old and eventually retires and then leave this earth when our life ends.
Is this all there is to life ?
I believe there is something more. The Holy Bible, the world's best book seller every year, tells us that we are created by God. Our first parents Adam and Eve were created in the image of God, Adam and Eve were unaware of sin. They were given commandment to live and eat of every fruits in the trees in the garden except from one tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for if they do they will die.
According to the Bible, Adam and Eve disobeyed God and so sin entered the world and man are destined to die as punishment for disobeying.
You may ask, is there anything more besides dying ?
Yes there is, the Bible says there is remedy for sin.That remedy is Jesus Christ. Perhaps at this time you will be saying you know Jesus Christ, that He died on the cross and was buried and rose again.
Right, but what else ? Do you know Jesus wants to live in you and me ? You may ask how does He do that ? First we have to recognize that we have sinned, we have broken or disobeyed God's law. The Bible says when we disobey one commandment we disobeyed all.That is a very high standard because we have a holy God. Only Jesus was able to fulfill the law. God says when we believe in Jesus , His righteousness will be given to us and our sins will or was given to Jesus . Jesus carried our sins and paid for them on the cross.
What else ? Our sins are paid for and we got the righteousness of Jesus but we still live in a fallen world with its temptations. The Bible says that before Jesus left for heaven , He promised that He will send the Holy Spirit from God the Father to reside in us and help us in our earthly life.
Perhaps you already know this or perhaps this is still too much for you.Let us pause at this time. If Jesus is already your Lord and Savior continue loving and obeying Him. If you are still trying to decide, pray that God will reveal to you the true Jesus Christ and how to have a relationship with Him.
