PAID IN FULL
Thank you for giving five minutes of your time to read through this message. I want to remind you that in the very beginning, God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness..’ Then God created the first humans-Adam and Eve. They spent time enjoying God’s fellowship. In short, life was good as that was God’s intention. Then our first question.
Why isn’t life like that anymore?
Unfortunately, the first humans chose to do the opposite of what God told them. Their disobedience led to sin, and sin poisoned human nature, which we all inherited from them to date. Everything changed.
How did this affect us?
Our sinful nature and habit separated us from God, who is holy and morally perfect. This left us with a broken relationship and a deep gulf between God and us. Our inherited sinful nature makes us habitual sinners, unable to help ourselves but continually breaking God’s law. The Scripture confirms this by saying, ‘for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,..’Rom.3:23. Looking into our lives and societies, we know this is true if we are honest. Therefore, we all stand guilty before God, and we deserve to be punished by Him, and that punishment is eternal separation from God in torment. This consequence is too huge to be ignored or gambled with.
Have humans tried to fix this problem?
Yes, humankind has tried, including me. Many people are still trying to find their way back to God through various means such as religion, morality, philosophy, philanthropic work, trying to be nice people, etc.; unfortunately, these cannot bridge the gap created by sin. They are just too far below the righteous standard of God. The Scripture confirms this saying: “None is righteous, no, not one;..All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” Rom 3:11-12
We desperately needed a way back to God, but our sin debt causing the gulf would not let us. But here comes the man Jesus Christ who took it upon himself to pay it off. He paid for the penalty of our sin in full through his death on the cross. And by so doing, abridging the gulf so that we can have a relationship with God again.
So, what should I do?
All you need to do is repent and believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will receive forgiveness from God and freedom from guilt. Peace with God, life to the full, and the gift of eternal life then become yours. Are you ready? Then please say the prayer below with all your heart.
‘’God, I confess that I have sinned against you, and I deserve the penalty. I believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for the penalty by his blood on the cross so that I could be forgiven. I believe he rose from the dead so that I could be justified. Therefore, I open my heart to receive Him as my Lord and Saviour’’
We want to congratulate you for deciding to commit your life to following Jesus. We would like to hear from you and send you other valuable materials to help your new relationship with God. You could contact us through our email and website. Thank you.
