Throughout this website we show scripture that speaks that Jesus is God. What must be understood is; regardless of what you believe, Jesus is your God. Jesus is the God of all who have ever been and who will ever be. Jesus is the King of His now invisible Kingdom. You may not recognize Him as such, you may not believe this fact but this is absolute truth. It is the greatest truth of all truths. You are a creature and you have a creator! God through the eternal Son, Jesus, is your creator. To think, that the God who spoke us into existence, took upon Himself, our human nature, to die for our sins, our separated, fallen condition; is something you can spend your lifetime pondering; but we hope as well a life of thankful praise, worship, renewal and service. Those, purchased by the Blood of Jesus, will be with Him for eternity; sharing in a joy and peace that is beyond our worldly understanding.
Please understand, the payment for our sins is the work of God and the work of God alone. This work has been completed. We have no part in this work other than to receive the finished work of Jesus Christ. We receive this salvation from God, through His mercies, His grace, His gift of faith on all that will be His.
There is no way to Heaven but through Jesus Christ. You cannot be good enough. God is Holy beyond our understanding and what we believe is our "goodness" does not provide merit with God. We are all "fallen creatures"; our personal, spiritual fellowship is with the root of evil, spiritually divided; the incompleteness of ourselves, our depravity, our sin, separates us from God. The divide between God and mankind is great and without God, this chasm cannot be crossed. But God has provided the way, the only way. God Himself did the work. This is the good news. This is great news, that God loves us! Jesus, on the cross, finished this work. A work planned from before the beginning, to save those whom He loves. For each of us, that now belong to God, a Christian, we must realize daily, our sin caused our need for a savoir. We are brand new and must follow this Jesus, walking with God so our flesh becomes obedient to our new born again spirit and our new Father, God Himself.
