The Most Important Message

In a person's whole life, he will receive many messages. Something as minor as a to-do list to a major call from a doctor saying, "You've got cancer!" But there's really one message that surpasses them all, and that's the gospel of Jesus Christ!
The gospel simply put is Christ died for your sins.
Why? Because "God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
God loves me, you, and the entire world He has created. The world He created for His glory. But because of Adam and Eve's sin, the perfect world He created was stained. Sin could not be present in the sight of God's holiness. At that moment Man became separated from God, but even before that moment, God had His plan of salvation worked out.
Christ's death enabled us to have a relationship with the God of the universe! God calls us His children of God. "But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God, who were born not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:12-13
So it is because of God "that I am what I am, and His grace to me was not without effect." 1 Corinthians 15:10
I commit this blog to God. I pray that everything I write on here is done for His glory!
Jesus may you be glorified through one of your children.

Soli deo gloria!!

In Christ,
