The beauty of the Gospel

So here it is... the God of the universe, of all that was created, the seen and unseen, the known and unknown did not consider it too high a price for Him to lower Himself a little below the angels so that some might be saved. Who needs to be saved you ask? All of us! You seen we are all sinners and fall short of the Glory of God. Because we are sinners, and God is Perfect and Holy, He cannot and will not allow imperfection and unholy people and things in His presence. Hence, mankind needs a Savior.

That Savior is Jesus Christ. God in the flesh. The only Perfect One that could possible pay for the sins of all mankind through His sacrificial death on the cross. It pleased God the Father to take His wrath out on His own Son so that we may have eternal life. Now our Heavenly Father no longer looks at us as we truly are but through the sacrificial atoning Blood of His only Son Jesus Christ. Here's the catch, we can only be saved from eternal torment and punishment if we accept Jesus Christ as our Master and Savior. Then we must repent  (turn away) from our sins and turn to Christ Jesus. We are already slaves. We are slaves to our fleshly lusts, worldly desires and satan.

We are exchanging one Master for another, and Jesus says He will set us free. We will no longer be called servants, but friends. Once we see how truly debased and wicked we really are in our present state, and our eyes have been opened, repentance comes easily. It is a gift from God. Once we repent we MUST be baptized for the forgiveness of sins, then Jesus promises we will have eternal LIFE!

BUT... if we don't then we are stuck in our sins, and the requirement for payment of those sins is eternal torment.

I beg all of those reading this that don't know Jesus Christ and what He has to offer PLEASE... PLEASE read a Bible! Search out to see if what I'm saying is true. Don't just trust me, trust Him
Ask Him to prove Himself to you. HE WILL! You have nothing to lose accept maybe a little time reading and talking to others, but you if what I'm saying is True then you have everything to gain i.e. ETERNAL LIFE AND JOY or everything to lose if you don't believe i.e. your eternal soul (the second death).
