Jesus Christ came as a Beacon of Hope to a lost and dying world.
“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life’” (John 8:12).
“…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
Before Jesus Christ came I was…
Alone, without God in the world.
“But even if our gospel [good news that Jesus, the Son of God, died on the cross, was buried, and rose again to pay the penalty for your sin and mine] is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age [Satan] has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).
“…At that time you were without Christ…having no hope and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12).
I WAS LOST.
He came as a Shepherd.
He came to restore me.
He came to bring me back to God.
“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him [Jesus Christ] the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6).
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake” (Psalm 23:1-3).
“That is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:19-21).
I WAS DYING.
He came as a Saviour.
He came to give me eternal life.
He came to rescue me from sin and its consequences (death).
“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11).
“And she [Mary] will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:16-19).
“Therefore, just as through one man [Adam] sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned” (Romans 5:12).
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him” (Romans 5:8-9).
I WAS WITHOUT HOPE.
He came as my Refuge, the One on whom I can depend in times of trouble.
He came to give me purpose.
He came to give me direction.
“Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. Those who sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, bound in affliction and irons—because they rebelled against the words of God, and despised the counsel of the Most High, therefore He brought down their heart with labor; they fell down, and there was none to help. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their chains in pieces” (Psalm 107:8-14).
“The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You” (Psalm 9:9-10).
“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:23-24).
“You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Psalm 16:11).
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105).
I WAS ALONE, WITHOUT GOD IN THE WORLD.
He came to be rejected by men.
He came to be forsaken of God.
He came that I might be adopted into God’s family, enjoying His presence forever; never alone, never forsaken.
“He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted” (Isaiah 53:3-4).
God’s Son, Jesus, cried out from the cross: “…My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Mark 15:34).
“He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:10-13).
“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God…” (1 John 3:1).
God the Father “… predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace” (Ephesians 1:5-7).
Jesus promised, “‘… lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
He said, “…I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
I WAS IN DARKNESS.
He came to “enlighten my darkness” and bring me to God.
“For You are my lamp, O Lord; the Lord shall enlighten my darkness” (2 Samuel 22:29).
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit” (1 Peter 3:18).
WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
REPENT—turn from sin and turn to God.
“…Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel’” (Mark 1:14-15).
“For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death” (2 Corinthians 7:10).
BELIEVE—believe the gospel.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also…” (1 Corinthians 15:1-8).
WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
This was the question the keeper of the prison asked Paul and Silas in Acts 16:30.
BELIEVE—believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
“So they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household’” (Acts 16:31).
BELIEVE—believe that Jesus is the Christ (the Anointed One), the Son of God, “King Of Kings And Lord of Lords” (Revelation 19:16).
“And He [Jesus] has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords” (Revelation 19:16).
“Jesus said to her [Martha], ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?’ She said to Him, ‘Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world’” (John 11:25-27).
BELIEVE—believe that Jesus Christ is THE ONLY WAY to God the Father and eternal life.
“Jesus said to him [Thomas], ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’” (John 14:6).
“He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life” (1 John 5:12).
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us…” (Titus 3:5).
“But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags…” (Isaiah 64:6).
“…The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).
“In whom [Jesus Christ] we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God…” (Colossians 1:14-15).
WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
CONFESS—declare Jesus Christ to be your Lord (Master) and your only Saviour from sin and its penalty, death.
“…The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:8-10).
“When He [Jesus] had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, ‘Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels’” (Mark 8:34-38).
WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
CALL—ask the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s Son, to forgive your sin and save your soul from hell. Ask Him to be your Saviour and Lord and give you eternal life with Him.
“For ‘whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved’” (Romans 10:13).
WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
REPENT. BELIEVE. CONFESS. CALL.
The thief who died at the time of Christ’s crucifixion received Jesus as his Lord and Saviour. Luke 23 gives us the account:
“Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him [Jesus], saying, ‘If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.’ But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, ‘Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong [Evidence of repentance: The thief agreed with God concerning his sin and recognized Jesus to be without sin.].’ Then he said to Jesus, ‘Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom [Evidence of faith or belief: He believed in Jesus, His power over death, His Kingship, and His kingdom. He confessed Jesus as His “Lord” and recognized Jesus’ ability to save him from eternal punishment and separation from God. He then called upon Him, asking entrance into His kingdom.]. And Jesus said to him, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise’” (Luke 23:39-43).
May you repent of your sin, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and His Gospel (good news of His death, burial, and resurrection), confess God’s Son Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, and call upon His name today! Trust God to “[deliver you] from the power of darkness” and to “[translate you] into the kingdom of the Son of His love” (Colossians 1:13)! —Donna L. Ferguson
