Peace With A Holy God
Eternal Life And Peace With A Holy God
God is Holy—with a Pure, Absolute, Incomprehensible, Infinite Holiness that is His alone! He lives in unapproachable light—in majestic Holiness, Purity and Glory that knows no bounds.
Unlike us, God is Good. Perfect in transcendent Omniscience, Wisdom, Justice and Love. We were created for fellowship with God. But, we have all sinned and separated ourselves from God and placed ourselves under His righteous judgment. God's justice requires payment for our sin for God to remain just, righteous and holy. That required payment is separation from God's presence in the blackness, darkness, and torment of Hell for all eternity—without hope.
But God, in His great love for us sent His perfect Holy Son to die as the payment for our sin. Unto us a child was born, unto us a Son was given as a sacrificial lamb to die that we might live.
By raising Jesus from the dead God displayed His acceptance of the substitutionary payment. God now commands everyone to repent of our sin and place our faith in His Son Jesus Christ. When we repent and place our faith (trust, belief) in Christ—God saves us and we are forgiven. This is the reason for The Cross, God's Good News!
There's a cost in following Christ
If indeed, God performs a miracle in your life and saves you, the proof will be a transformation of your whole life. You'll begin to love things you once ignored or even hated, and find yourself beginning to hate some of the things you once loved. You will know that you are now His child, His personal work of love and kindness. By grace, there will be progress toward Christ likeness.
So be ready! There's a cost for following Christ. Sometimes the cost is everything you have. But it's worth it! The decision is yours. If God is working in your heart—follow the light home!
If not, pray earnestly that God will change your heart. You can make a lot of mistakes in life and get by, but this is one you do not want to make. Don't miss Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord!
