The world we live in is confused. Culture says there is no truth. To many, this means there is no God. Others have adopted the belief that God is dead, or have attempted to redefine God according to their preferences.
But the idea that there is no universal truth has never really resonated with the deepest parts of our being. We look at nature, we look at creation, we look at our own journey, and we know there is deeper truth. Each one of us searches for meaning. We long for truth.
The message of Jesus Christ tells us there is truth. It tells us truth applies to everyone. The existence of God, the creation of man, man’s desperate need and search for redemption, and our ability to now find peace with God are universal truths. The Bible has been pointing to Truth for centuries. It tells the story of Jesus and reveals that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. In the Bible we are shown the way to eternal life.
Because of the sinless life and sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, we can now be reconciled to our creator and Heavenly Father. We can know we are loved beyond anything we can imagine. We don’t earn His love—we receive it, and absolutely nothing can separate us from His love. We can now realize we are loved as we are and not as we wish we were. When we trust in Jesus Christ, our sins are no longer counted against us. We are adopted and received into His family. We now have a Father. The Bible tells us blessed is the person who sins are forgiven. We are free.
Reconciling a lost world to Himself has been the work of our Heavenly Father since the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The apostles were told to go into all the world to make disciples, baptize believers, and teach the ways of God. Each one of us needs to hear this truth—that God has reconciled all things to Himself because of what Jesus Christ did on the cross. This news of forgiveness—that we can now be reconciled to God through faith in Jesus Christ—changes everything. It sets us free.
It’s time for you to be reconciled to God. It’s time for you to believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Romans 8:32
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39
Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11 More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Romans 5:9-11
Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; 8 blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin. Romans 4:7-8
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
