God created and blessed us
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. He created everything on this earth, and most importantly, He created man in His own image. The creation of mankind was special in God’s eyes. He created the human race as male and female. God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living being. God loved man. He blessed him and said to him, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.” Though God created man in His likeness, He granted him a free will. But man misused his free will and disobeyed God.
Sin separated us from God
Through the disobedience of the very first humans, sin entered the world. The extent of the people’s wickedness was great and all their thoughts were consistently and totally evil. Sin separated man from God. The term “Sin” refers to an action or thought that is prohibited by God. All have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard. There is not a single person in all the earth who is always good and never sins. As the sins kept increasing, people eventually forgot God. The separation between God and man increased further and so did the sins. The wages of sin is death. It is an eternal death in hell that man deserves for his sins.
Jesus Christ paid for our sins
The restoration of mankind from sins required the sacrifice of the Holy one. Hence Jesus Christ, the Son of God was born into this world in human form. God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. In order to bridge the gap of separation between God and man, Jesus became the mediator between us. For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and people. He is the man Christ Jesus. He suffered and died for our sins, just like it had been written about Him in the Scriptures. He was buried, and He rose again on the third day.
Receiving Jesus as our Saviour
God wants everyone to escape eternal condemnation in hell. The death of Jesus delivers us from our slavery to sin and His resurrection gives us new life. Jesus is God’s only provision to rescue us from eternal death. He is the only way to heaven. No one can come to God the Father except through Jesus. Receiving Jesus in your life doesn’t require you to do anything. In order to receive Jesus as your personal Saviour, you need to admit your sinful condition, repent and believe in Him. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
