Have you ever asked yourself these questions?
“What is the gospel? What does it mean?”
“What's the real meaning/purpose of life?”
“Where can I find lasting peace and joy?”
We all ask these questions at some point because they reflect our deepest needs.
At Gospel Light, we believe that you are not just meant to be alive, but to experience the real life!
Human beings are innately spiritual; we naturally seek and worship something greater than ourselves. Why?
Well, the Bible tells us that we are created in God’s likeness (Genesis 1:27).
He created us to be like Him, so that we might have a relationship with Him
Therefore, we cannot be truly satisfied (and have real life) except through this spiritual relationship.
The problem is that our relationship with God is broken because of our sin.
The Bible defines sin as any disobedience/rebellion against God, not just breaking human laws.
God, being perfect, has a perfect moral standard, which we all fall short of (Romans 3:23).
Sin is so powerful that it transforms our nature into one that misunderstands and hates God (1 Corinthians 2:14).
We try to find satisfaction in other things like “earning” our way to heaven with good deeds, or pursuing money and/or sex…we even try to convince ourselves that He doesn’t exist!
God, being perfect and holy, cannot tolerate sin and must punish it. And the penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23) and separation from God in a place the Bible calls Hell.
It would be tragic if the story ends here. But the Bible also tells us that God, despite having no obligation towards us, “is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loves us” (Ephesians 2:4).
God loves us so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the penalty of our sin on our behalf. Jesus took the form of a man, suffered, and died on the cross— an event so significant that our calendar years became recorded as BC (“before Christ”) and AD.
God chose to reconcile our relationship with Him even though we were enemies (Romans 5:10).
Three days after He died, Jesus rose from the grave to heaven, thus defeating the power of sin, death and hell. Only the love of God can release us from the power of sin!
What do I do?
The Bible says in John 3:16 that “whoever believes in Him (Jesus Christ) should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
God offers us a free gift that we can choose to accept by believing that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Saviour.
If we confess and repent of our sins, He will forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). We will be destined for eternal life in heaven with God instead of eternal death in hell separated from God.
This is the gospel (‘good news’)— that Jesus saves us by paying a penalty that we cannot pay ourselves. We pray you will enter into real life through Jesus Christ today!
PS: Let us know if you want to or have just made this decision to repent and believe in Jesus Christ. We would love to encourage and pray for you!
