The Truth Is…Faith In Jesus Christ Leads To Eternal Life With God The Father
The Truth Is… Faith In Jesus Christ leads to eternal life with God the Father
2 Corinthians 2:15-16 “For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life, who is equal to such a task?” It is understandable that those that are in Christ have joy in their lives because there is no fear of a spiritual death. I understand the anger of those without Christ because they fear spiritual death and have no power to do anything about it. They are angry because they have no power over their eternity. Their pride will not allow them to be humble before their creator. Without the spirit of GOD, man cannot accept or understand what GOD has freely given them in Christ. These people reject the gospel message because of their hard hearts and pride. They smell the odor of death in their lives and not the fragrance of Christ that is why they reject and lash out at the gospel.
In John 3:18-21 it is written, “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.” A Christian is a person that realized they are sinful and need the love of God to be cleansed from their sin. A Christian is a person that understands that the salvation they have is a gift of God and not their own doing. A Christian is a person that admits his sinfulness daily and depends on God’s grace. A Christian is a person that realize that the only thing that makes him different from a non-christian is mercy and grace that comes from God through Jesus Christ. A Christian is a person that was willing to come into the light of truth so that he could truly see how sinful he or she is. A Christian is a person that attempts to live by the word of God, and even if he or she is not completely successful, they know that God still loves them through Christ Jesus. If you are interested in receiving eternal life through Jesus Christ, pray and ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart, ask him to forgive you of your sin and to give you the faith and courage to repent (turn away from sin)and live the life God would have you to live.
Prayer: Lord we thank you for eternal life, we are grateful that this place is not our home, that you have prepared a place with you for your people. Your spirit can reach all hearts and give understanding. Please soften the hearts of those that reject your salvation and give them the faith to believe you and your word, draw them to you we pray for your name sake in the powerful name of Jesus Christ.
