The Lord states by the prophet Isaiah that the Lord's hand is not so short that it cannot save neither is His ear without hearing. Yet it is due to our sins that a separation has occured between God and man. The result of this separation is that sin has blinded our minds so that God's face is hid and that He will not hear (Isaiah 59:1-2). God, in His mercy, sent His Son to earth in order that we might see His face. For God, who commanded the light to shine our of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6). We see God and His excellencies in His only begotten Son. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:9-10)

God created you in His image to honor, love, serve, and glorify Him.

  • But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him (1 Corinthians 8:6).

  • For by him [Christ] were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him (Colossians 1:16).  

  • For of him [God], and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen (Romans 11:36).

  • That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ (Ephesians 1:2).

Man fell in Adam. That means all mankind are sinners; separated from God. This includes you. Your fellowship with God was broken. You lack the glory of God which was your created purpose. You are a sinner and under the wrath of God as was I.

  • Wherefore, as by one man  [Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned (Romans 5:12).

  • For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

The penalty for sin is death.

  • For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).

  • But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death (Revelation 21:8).

The Lord Jesus Christ, God’s sinless Son, died and He arose again the third day victoriously over sin and death. As very God in human flesh, He took God’s wrath for sin. The payment was made!

  • Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us (Matthew 1:23).

  • But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).

  • For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him (2 Corinthians 5:21).

  • For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: and that he was seen (1 Corinthians 15:3-5a).

In order to have restored fellowship and new life in Christ, setting you free from the bondage of sin, you must turn from sin and put your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone for salvation. It is a salvation not of human effort, will, or works. It is His gift. Will you receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your God and Savior now?

  • Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon (Isaiah 55:7).

  • The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise (Psalm 51:17).

  • And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform (Romans 4:21).

  • But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.- John 1:12, 13

  • For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13).

If you have trusted Christ Jesus, will you let me know about this? Do you have further questions?  Let our church be of service to you.
