Many people, wondering if there is more to life, are searching for peace and fulfillment, but not everyone finds it. The good news is that we don’t need to search for fulfillment any longer. God has come to us in the person of Jesus Christ. This is the message of the Bible. It is referred to as the “Gospel” which means good news.
The basic human dilemma is not the economy of poverty, racial prejudice or broken relationships. These actually result from the fundamental human problem which is our wrongdoing (our sin) that separates us from God. God is without sin (holy). Our sin cuts us off from the good that God intends for us; to bring us blessing and into a relationship with Him.
We can never make up for our sin (the Bible calls this atonement) or impress God by what we do. God’s plan: He sent Jesus, His Son, to this world to die on the cross to pay the price for our sin. All we need to do is believe that He died for us and our sin will be forgiven; we will enter into an awesome relationship with God that continues on into eternity. When we know and trust in Jesus’ incredible love, our entire lives become an expression of gratitude that says thank you to Jesus.
