God gives us a way of salvation...
When God saw the miserable condition in
which all of mankind was, and how they were headed to eternal death, He love them, felt
compassion and decided to save them. He had already prepared a plan through which He
was to redeem mankind from its sinful state. For this reason he became human in the
person of Jesuschrist and came down and lived among men. While Jesuschrist was on
earth, he dedicated his life to preach a Gospel of Hope, harmony, long lasting peace and Eternal Life for those who believe in Him.
Those who do not believe would be
condemned to eternal separation from God. The Bible says that he who does not
believe will be cast into a lake of fire and sulfur.
We were condemed to death, but he took our sins upon
himself and made himself guilty in our place. He was crucified and died so that all
who accept His sacrifice would not have to die.
Jesus not only died for us, but He resurrected on the
third day. With His resurrection Jesus assured that those who belive will receive
"Eternal Life" together with Him. This new life begins with the new birth.
When we recognize our sinful condition and understand
that we need to believe in Jesus to be saved
and belive in Him as our only Lord and Savior, then occurs whta Jesus himself called "The
New Birth". He said that those who were not born again
could not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
