Do you believe a moral law that has been broken deserves punishment?
Have you ever broken a moral law that you feel should or could be punished?
If your answer is yes, I have too. We have all broken moral laws that lead to spiritual death and punishment.
Romans 3:23 (NKJV) for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
Romans 6:23 (NKJV) For the wages of sin is death, but…
We are not doomed, there is hope!
As a result of sin, the world was disconnected from a Holy God. The good news is that God lovingly sent a mediator to reconnect mankind with Himself. He sent His only Son, Jesus to be that mediator for you and I.
Jesus came to this earth 100% God and 100% man. He lived a morally pure (sinless) life and died in our place for our moral failings (sin). In other words, Jesus took upon Himself all of the punishment, guilt, and shame that was due us as a result of our sin. Three days after Jesus died, he rose from the dead, having overcome the power of sin and death. Since Jesus died in our place, we too can overcome the power of sin and death through our belief in Him.
…the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
Now you can make this decision to rely on Jesus to save you or not the choice is yours.
If you want to rely wholly on Christ right now, you can.
Make this declaration from your heart:
Jesus, I rely on You to save me from my moral failures (sins). I believe that You came as a man and died as a payment for my moral failures (sins) and was ressurrected so that I can come alive to a relationship with God.
