Have you ever wondered what Life is all about? Have you ever asked yourself, “How did I get here…what’s my purpose in life, and where will I spend eternity?” People have been seeking answers to Life’s greatest questions forever.
God has provided the answers in the Bible. It’s The GOSPEL…It’s the story of Life from Genesis to Revelation summed up in 6 simple words…
Let’s begin…It all starts with God.
GOD created us to be with Him
God created us to love Him and enjoy a relationship with Him forever. The Bible says “All things were created by Him and for Him.” (Col 1:16)
God also intended us to have abundant lie – life that is full and meaningful, with purpose… and to have eternal life. Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it abundantly.” He also said, “This is eternal life that we might know Him, the true and living God.” (John 10:10b, John 17:3)
The question is, “Why aren’t most people experiencing this kind of Life?” Because…. OUR….sins separate us from God
God’s Word says, “All of us have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23). And the penalty for that sin is death…physical, spiritual, and eternal death…separation from God forever. (Romans 6:23). It all began with Adam and Eve falling into sin when they listened to the lies of Satan and disobeyed God. Have you ever told a lie or sto- len something? Have you ever gotten angry or had lustful thoughts? This is evidence of what the Bible calls sin. We’ve violated God’s moral law… running life our own independent way.
This applies to everyone. We all sin, and ultimately we will stand in Judgment, declared guilty before a holy and perfect God. (Hebrews 9:27)
People continually try to solve this problem through their own efforts but…
SINS…Cannot be removed by good deeds
You see, there’s nothing we can do to get to God. Good works, religion, morality, or philosophy, will not bridge the gap between sinful people and a holy God.
God’s Word states that “All of our good deeds are like filthy rags before a holy God.” (Isaiah 64:6)
But there is Good News. While God is holy and just and must judge sin, He is also loving and merciful and doesn’t want to punish us. So God provided the way to restore our relationship with Him.
PAYING…the price for sin, Jesus died and rose again. First of all, who is Jesus?
He is the infinite God-man…God in human flesh. Jesus said, “I and the Father are one.” (John 10:30)
Jesus lived a perfect life and did many miracles proving He was God.
Because of His great love for us, Jesus paid the death penalty for every sin we ever committed. (Romans 5:8)
John 14:6 Jesus not only died for our sins. He was buried and rose again from the grave on the third day. (1 Corinthians 15:3-5, Rom 5:8) And he is the only way to get to God. He said “I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6)
God made a way, the one and only way to Him. This is good news! This is great news!!!
But it is not enough to simply know these facts…
EVERYONE who trusts in Jesus alone will have eternal life…
and that means anyone! Salvation involves turning to God from sin, that’s called repentance…and trusting in Jesus alone for Salvation…receiving Him by Faith. (Eph 2:8-9)
Jesus said ” Here I am…I’m knocking at the door of your heart. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him.” (Rev 3:20) It requires faith and it requires a personal invitation…surrendering complete control of your life to Him. God’s Word says “To all who received Him to those who believe in His name, He gives the right to become a child of God…” (John 1:12) And, “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved…” (Romans 10:9-10)
John 14:6 Does this make sense to you? On which side do you see yourself? Where would you like to be? Are you ready to make this personal?
You can receive Jesus right now if you tell Him with all of your heart something like this…
God promised in His Word…” Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved…” (Romans 10:13)
What you do with Jesus is the most important decision you will ever make. Once you have trusted Him as your Sav- ior and Lord, your…
LIFE with Jesus starts now and lasts forever
Jesus said “I tell you the TRUTH, whoever hears these words of mine and believes Him who sent me has eternal life and will not come into Judgment but has crossed over from death to life.” (John 5:24)
This is the Good News…it’s the GOSPEL…it’s Life in 6 Words… God – Our – Sins – Paying – Everyone – Life
