This is perhaps the most important article on this site, and really the sole purpose that we do this. We want to lead people to the only One that can redeem us from death and into a glorious new life, Jesus.
Even though Hollywood would like to depict this as fantasy, we really are immortal beings. We have a soul that never dies inside of us. When we die, we go somewhere; Either judgement or rest. Hell or Heaven.
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me." ~John 14:6
That's a strong statement because it means that the only way to God and Heaven is through Jesus, His Son.
Why do we need Jesus?
Because we need the evil that we've committed in our lives to be forgiven. God gave us His Ten Commandments to show us what he commands humanity to follow. We have all fallen short. Everyone has (some more than others). The Bible says that God is Holy. He is perfect, pure, truth and that our own righteousness is like a filthy rag compared to His high standard.
So if our best isn't good enough, then we need help. I have good news. The Bible says that God did help us out.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus), that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ~John 3:16
Jesus died for you and took your place.
Ask God to help you become what He wants you to be. He does everything He can do, to help us know Him better. He also wants us to repent of our sin. Sometimes this is a slow process. It doesn't happen overnight. This is why it is so important for seasoned Christians to be patient and not judge people. Because God sometimes doesn't conquer everything sinful in a persons life immediately. He does it slowly and over time. But we have to take the first step. Secondly, the Bible tells us that we need to be baptized in Jesus name and then recieve the Holy Spirit.
If you need prayer or someone to talk to, you can always let us know. We're here to help you.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. ~Revelations 3:20
