God created everything to bring him glory.
“All things have been created by Him and for Him.” – Colossians 1:16
Mankind rebelled against God’s design. This rebellion is called sin. Because of sin, we have been seperated from right relationship with God.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God;” – Romans 3:23
Because we have all sinned against God, we are all deserving of punishment.
“For the wages of sin is death,…” – Romans 6:23
But God stepped into our brokenness to make a way for us, out of the brokenness of our sin.
“…but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”- Romans 6:23
Jesus paid the price for our sin, so that we could be made right with God.
“But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8
All we have to do to accept this free gift is confess, repent, and believe.
“If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”- Romans 10:9
This is simply the beginning of our new life in Christ.
