Are You Searching for God?

 

This world is full of interesting people...

  • Some simply deny that there is a God
  • Others say, “I just don’t know!”
  • Some cling to a god or religion they think is true
  • And others find peace and life through the God of the Bible

Those who believe in the God of the Bible call themselves Christians. They understand that they are sinners and that a holy and perfect God must judge sin.

But Christians also rejoice in the fact that they have been forgiven and no longer need to fear death because they will spend eternity with God after they leave this world. They have asked God to forgive them, and he has answered their prayer.

This forgiveness is available to every person who is alive today because God sent his Son to suffer the penalty that is duly theirs, since all of us have sinned and are guilty before a holy God. The Bible says it this way:

“There is no-one righteous, not even one…there is no fear of God before their eyes.” (Rom.3:10,18)

But God has a solution for the problem of sin:

“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.” (John 3:16)

“Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.” (John 3:36)

And so it is that all who turn to God’s Son, Jesus Christ, and ask him to forgive their sins will be saved from eternal damnation (the place called hell) and spend eternity with God in heaven.
Jesus said:

Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

This is a very powerful and absolutely non-negotiable truth. It is exclusive – there’s no other way. But it is also all-inclusive since God desires that all should come to know this truth and become his children through trusting Jesus Christ for their salvation.

People who deny that there is a God, or just don’t know, or cling to a false hope by following false gods or false religions, have absolutely no hope. Sadly, they will face an eternity apart from God in a place called hell.

But there is always hope that some will come to God the Father through Jesus the son.

It is for this reason – and out of love for the lost – that Christians go about telling others about this good news. It is the good news that they, too, can be saved from an eternity of doom. Christians want others to know that Jesus died for them, no matter how small or big their sin may be, and that after three days he rose from the dead and is now alive forever more, sitting at the right hand of God the Father, ever ready to save sinners.

Sadly, some people try to seek God’s forgiveness in their own way. They become religious, they go to church, and they participate in the sacraments. They give money or do good works. And all the while they think that this will save them. The list of self-effort is almost endless. But God cannot be bribed by any works or anything that we have done. Our own efforts are merely attempts to enter into God’s heaven by the back door.  This is impossible because there is only one way, and only one door. Jesus said that HE is the only way, and HE is the only door:

Jesus said: “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.” (John 10:9)

The choice is yours – choose wisely!
The wrong choice will result in a terrible outcome – your life is at stake!

The right choice, on the other hand, will result in peace with God and eternal security. I hope you will make the right choice. I have made mine, and I thank God. Together with all those who are saved I can joyfully say…
