…to the Christian Experience/ Life
First of all, GOD LOVES YOU! Believe it! The Bible explains that we humans have an emptiness, an inner void, a longing to love and be loved. Jesus of Nazareth said he came to fill that void, to offer hope and genuine purpose (see John 10:10). He died a physical and spiritual death to pay the penalty we humans owed for our flaws and imperfections, so that we wouldn’t have to (see 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10). Then he returned to life to offer us people the opportunity to plug into God both now and forever.
If you had a traffic fine you could not pay, I could offer to pay it for you, as a gift to you. Just as you would need to accept my gift to pay your fine, so we humans need to accept Jesus’ free gift of forgiveness to enjoy a friendship with him. Choose today to accept him.
