Try Our New Church App! First, The Bad News Before we can appreciate the good news, we have to begin at the beginning of the story and look at some very bad news.
We all share something in common. The Bible says that we are all sinners. Let me ask you, have you ever taken a shot at a target and missed the bulls-eye? Hold on to your seat, though! The bad news is about to get much worse.
We earn wages in exchange for work that we have done. Well, our work of sin has given us some wages. This verse makes it clear that our payment for our sin is death! Death always means separation. In this case, the payment for our work of sin is separation from God.
Can you imagine what it would be like to be eternally separated from God? Because of your sin, there is a great gulf between you and God. Some people try all sorts of things to cover over their sin, thinking it will stop the car from going off the cliff.
None of this can cure our sin problem. The Bible makes it clear that we cannot stick our foot out the door and stop the car of our life from going off the cliff of eternal separation from God.
We cannot fix our problem that sin has caused. So because there is no way we can fix our problem, God stepped in and offered us the only solution to our problem!
Now The Best News Ever! Here is the 3rd verse I want to share with you. Look at what God has done for us!
When we could do nothing to stop the car of our lives from crashing off the cliff, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to die in our place. You see, the Bible tells us that when Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for us, He took our place and received the wages that we deserved — the wages of death.
He died for us and suffered separation from God the Father because of your sin and my sin. But He did not stay dead!
Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. Notice that first sentence. God is the subject of the sentence. He is the one doing the action.
The Apostle Paul is saying to the people in the church in Ephesus that they had nothing to do with their salvation. God saved them by His grace.
Now notice the end of the first sentence. Can you believe it?! If you will simply believe what God has done for you, you can take advantage of the gift God is offering to you.
By believing, you will be saved from that horrible separation from God that you deserve because of your sin! Think back to your last birthday.
Did anyone give you a gift?
There it was, sitting on the table. It had your name on it, but it did not become your gift until you reached out and received it. The same is true of the gift of eternal life. It is being offered to you, but you have to reach out and make it yours.
So how do you do that? When we talk to Jesus, it is called prayer. Here is an example of what you could tell Jesus:For 24 Hours!! Cheapest Ever Blu-ray GAME OF THRONES!! WILLIAM GOLDMAN ; Gunn Isn’t Returning to GOTG 3, Disney is Looking at Travis Knight to Direct.
