Think On This

Published on by simondisciple

"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 v 36)

The Bible says we are enemies of God, that His wrath abides upon us because of our sin. God commands all men everwhere to repent because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness.  

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3 v 23)

"Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone - an image made by man's design and skill. In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but noe He commands all people everywhere to repent. For He has set a day when He will judge the world with justice by the man He has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising Him from the dead." (Acts 17 v 29-31)

Even your goodness and good works will not save you. God will bring every work into judgment. He will punish murderers, rapists, thieves, liars, and adulterers. How will you fare on judgment day? Have you ever told a lie, half-truth, or even a little "white lie"? Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you, a pen, library book, or cheated on your taxes? Have you ever lusted after another person?

Have you loved God above all else? Or have you made a god to suit yourself. Listen to your conscience. God will expose all your secret sins, and without the Savior, you will end up in hell. I know we don't like to hear this, but it is the truth. You know that you will be guilty on judgment day and end up in everlasting torment. That is not God's will. He sent His Son Jesus Christ to take your punishment.

"God commended His love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ suffered and died for all of us." (Romans 5 v 8)

Jesus then rose from the dead and defeated death. God offers you the gift of everlasting life. God's grace is the only thing that can save mankind. His mercy towards you and I is everlasting. Repent and confess your sins and trust in the Savior Jesus Christ.

God will forgive you completely. Accept His pardon through faith, then read your Bible daily, get to know Him. The Bible is our rule book, and instruction book, obey what It says and you can never go wrong. Be buried with Christ in water baptism and you will walk in the newness of life.

God does love you because he sent his son Jesus to die for you. Start reading the Bible, commencing in the Gospel of John. Get in fellowship with other believers. Find a place to worship God with others to gain strength and knowledge about the Lord. Note: Some poeple allow other people's shortcomings and faults to cause them not to accept the Lord or attend church, don't become one of them. You will be held accountable for your own sins, not theirs. Don't let anyone or anything stand between you and God, and your relationship with Him.

We are saved for only one reason, so that we might recieve the righteousness of Christ, so when we stand before Him on judgment day we will be found not guilty because Jesus has already paid the price for you. No matter what you have done, you can be forgiven by Jesus Christ. Righteousness, Love, Joy and Peace are freely available to all believers by faith.

However you may suffer hard times, death, sickness, oppression, and rejection, but we have God to carry us through each trial and tribulation. He will always be with you whatever you may be experiencing. Don't come to Christ thinking you will never ever have any problems, and everything will be peace and joy, that is not true. There will be struggles and hardships but hang in there with Him, He and only He, can help you through those times.

What is our reward? Heaven, eternal life, peace, joy, happiness, no pain, no sickness, no death. It is worth it. There is nothing in this world worth losing your soul over. Think on this!
