What is the reason for you living? Do you have true joy and peace? Do you have meaning and purpose in life? Or are you just wasting away…waiting to die…wondering what life is all about? You’ve tried many things to fill the emptiness that eats away at your soul. Money, pleasure, a family, a career. But these things just haven’t brought any lasting joy or peace to your heart have they?
You see, the problem is sin. For it is written in GOD’s Word that, “There is none righteous, no not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after GOD. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of GOD,” ( Romans 3:10-12, 23).
You, me…we’re all wretched sinners…not only bound for hell, but condemned to a worthless existence here on earth.
But it need not be that way!
For it is written in GOD’s Word that, “GOD
demonstrated HIS love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, CHRIST died for us,” ( Romans 5:8). But HE also wants to give you a life worth living here on earth. This is why HE created you, and allows you to keep on living. So why do you continue to refuse HIS offer?
And don’t tell GOD that HE should love you and give you eternal life because you go to church regularly, or help people in the community, or because perhaps your parents were CHRISTians, or because you were baptized, or because you don’t smoke or you don’t drink. Salvation from sin, and the removal of the guilt that accompanies sin, comes only through believing in HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST. The Bible talks about this when it says, “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of GOD, not of works, lest any man should boast,” ( Ephesians 2:8-9).
And don’t tell GOD that you’ll wait until some other day…then maybe you’ll think about it. For it is written in GOD’s Word, “…you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes,” ( James 4:14).
So if you’ve read or heard these truths before, please don’t ignore them any longer! GOD says in HIS Word that, “…all men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of the LORD stands forever” ( I Peter 1:24-25). Don’t continue to shut out the voice of GOD that is calling to you right now, even as you read these words! For it is written in GOD’s Word that if you do not believe in HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST, you are condemned, and the wrath of GOD is upon you…now!
If you are truly seeking to know how to be saved from the condemnation of your sin, (and GOD knows if you are or not), GOD’s Word, the Bible, is very simple and plain in telling you how!
For it is written…
“He that hath the SON hath life; he that hath not the SON of GOD hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the Name of the SON of GOD, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may believe on the Name of the SON of GOD.” I John 5:12-13
