DO YOU KNOW JESUS CHRIST?
There is often a misconception about Christianity. Many people wrongly label it a religion and anyone who believes in Jesus as religious, however this couldn't be further from the truth. Authentic Christianity is not religion at all but a relationship, a relationship with the Living God and His only Son who made a way to The throne of His Father in Heaven. On the Contrary, it was the religious leaders of Jesus day who demanded He be killed. Real Christianity is about entering into a close and personal relationship with God through His Son and religion is a list of do's and don'ts we can never possibly keep.
Imagine that you have committed the most unforgivable offense, the worst possible crimes that you can ever think of. You know you're going to prison for the rest of your life for what you've done. You get arrested and then you go before a judge, but this judge is different. As you stand before Him, you know your life is about to be over but then you watch in shock as He suddenly steps down from His place as a righteous judge who can and should give you the death penalty but instead tells you that your crimes have been completely forgiven and you're no longer guilty. He then tells you that you are now innocent of all charges and your record has been wiped completely clean forever, you are free to go. However, because He is a righteous judge, He knows that it would be unjust to let evil go unpunished. He then walks to where you were just standing a second ago and takes your place as a guilty man who has committed the worst crimes imaginable. Just then, a more righteous Judge than He appears and gives Him the sentence that you deserved. You then watch in disbelief as He is taken away to be put to death for the crimes you committed while you walk away a free man cleared of all wrong doing!
This story is no story at all but it is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Gospel means good news. This good news is what Jesus did for all of humanity when He took upon Himself the sins of all mankind. Mine, yours and every person who has ever lived. He was the only One who ever lived and never committed a single wrong. He was completely innocent and still He chose to take our punishment and be crucified on the cross for what we have done. There are no words to describe the beauty of what He's done for us and what He offers to all who will believe in Him, it is absolutely amazing! He offers to forgive anyone of any and all wrong doing who will turn away from their sin and believe in Him and accept what He has done for us on the cross which is this:
Jesus the ONLY SON OF GOD stepped down from His throne in heaven with GOD His Father and was sent to the earth, the same earth He Himself created, and was born as a man just like us. He lived a life just like ours and never committed even one single sin, He was perfect! Then He was falsely accused as a criminal and was killed like a criminal on the cross that we deserve. He was then buried in a borrowed tomb. Three days later He rose from the dead and soon thereafter was taken back into The kingdom of Heaven to take His rightful place at the right hand of God His father, where eternal life is. He chose to take this death so that all who might believe in The Son of God would repent from their sins and wrong doings and in turn inherit eternal Life with The Son and The Father in Heaven. He did for us what we could never do for ourselves: Save us from an eternity apart from God in a very horrific place called hell.
IF YOU HEAR THIS MESSAGE TODAY THEN UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED THE TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL. IF YOU FEEL CONVICTED INSIDE YOUR HEART AND KNOW THAT YOU STAND GUILTY BEFORE THE LIVING GOD AND WANT TO ACCEPT JESUS AND WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR YOU, THEN REPENT(turn away from your sins and give them to God) AND PRAY. ASK JESUS TO FORGIVE YOU OF WHAT YOU HAVE DONE, TO CLEANSE YOUR HEART AND MAKE YOU NEW AGAIN. INVITE HIM INTO YOUR HEART AND LIFE, INVITE HIM TO BE YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR. IF YOU DO THIS IN GENUINE SINCERITY OF HEART THEN YOU WILL BE SAVED. HOW DO I KNOW THAT IT'S TRUE? BECAUSE GOD TOLD US THAT IT WOULD BE TRUE AND GOD NEVER LIES AND ALWAYS KEEPS HIS PROMISES, NO MATTER WHAT. HE IS ALIVE AND VERY REAL AND SO IS HIS DEATH AND RESSURECTION.
