If you read yesterday's entry, you'll know that I had written about God. God being three (3) persons: God the Father, God the Son... Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
If you haven't read yesterday's entry, you may want to do so, for I included pics to visually explain this concept.
God formulated the plan of salvation for us. Jesus came to earth; 100% God and 100% man. No one forced Jesus to do this. He came voluntarily.
As the Old Testament prophecies show, Jesus came knowing His purpose was to fulfil God's plan of salvation for us. Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophesy, as written in Isaiah 53 and other parts of God's Word.
No one murdered Jesus, as some people have thought over the centuries since Jesus walked this earth. When He hung on the cross, died and was resurrected, He did so for your salvation and mine. He did so, in obedience to God the Father, to fulfill God's plan of salvation for us.
Jesus is truly the pot 'o gold at the end of the rainbow.
When He left this earth, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to be a benefit to us. The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin, guides us and intercedes for us, with God the Father, in prayer.
All this for us, because God loved us, so very much! So much that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). Praise God for this!
No one has to tell me about love. I've experienced human love, here on earth and look forward to the day, when I will be in heaven with my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
If you don't know Jesus and if He doesn't know you, it's important that you know that you need Him.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father, but by Him. If you know Him, you know the Father; if you don't know Him, you don't know the Father. You can read this for yourself, in the New Testament, in the book of John and elsewhere.
Why is this so important? Well, God's Word, the Bible teaches us that we are born into this life, dead; you can read about this in Ephesians 2.
We are not made alive, until we come to Christ. And, the promise of heaven for eternity is not made available to us, until we have been made alive in Christ. Jesus Christ.
So, my friends, if you don't know Him. Please speak with me, e-mail me, or contact a Bible-believing Christian, who knows and understands that we all need to be saved, or born-again.
Know that I pray for you, regularly.
Until next time...
