"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes..." Romans 1:16
As the video began "We all long for the world to be good." Would you consider yourself to be a good person? It's so easy for us to see evil and sin in others all around us but if we are honest with ourselves we contribute too.
Ever told a lie?
Ever stolen anything?
Ever said or thought "I hate you!" toward another person?
Ever had sexually lustful thoughts about someone other than your spouse?
Each of these not only contribute to the problems in the world and in others, but it is a direct offense and rebellion against God. If we have done these things, God sees us as a lying, thieving, murderous, adulterer at heart, and the Bible warns that sin cannot go unpunished. But...
God is not willing that any should perish. We broke God’s Law and Jesus paid our fine. This means that God can justly dismiss our case: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Then Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death.
In order to receive this free gift we must first repent, turning from sin and trust that Jesus' sacrifice on the cross has paid our debt and reconciled us to God. The Bible says that once this happens we go from death to life, from darkness to light, and God gives us eternal life as a free gift.
