Do you know who God is? Do you know what His purpose for creation is? What is the greatest thing about God? It would take the whole bible to thoroughly answer these questions so we will only cover some very important high points.
If you have yet to receive Christ into your life then all these points are of the utmost importance to you and your family!
The first thing we learn about God in Genesis 1:1 He was there from the beginning and that He created the heavens and the earth. But does it say who He is? This is better explained in other passages of the bible. In John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
The apostle John talks about the Word and that Word was Jesus Christ.
In other scripture we learn what God is like and the most important characteristic about Him. Very plainly He is the epitome of love. 1 John 4:8, 16 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
God even emphasizes how important love is.
1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Let make sure we understand that Gods love and the love defined by the world are totally different. The love of the world is sensual, emotional, self seeking, lustful, and covetous. God’s love is explained this way. John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. This is exactly what God did when He sent His Son to die in our place on the cross. John 3:16 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.
Jesus loved all men so much He willingly gave His life for us that we might live.
Galatians 1: 3-5 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
We have now come to the most important part!
If you have never asked Jesus to come into your life take the time, now, find a private place and ask God to help you understand what being saved is all about. He, in all His love, will show you the way. Trust Him! Believe Him! Accept Him! He is ready with all His heart to give you His greatest gift. His GRACE! It is undeserved pardon for all your sins past, present, and future. You will be a new holy creation for God the Father and your citizenship will immediately be in heaven.
2 Corinthians 6:2 For He says: ” In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
Don’t wait any longer for Jesus is at the door waiting to come in!
2 Thessalonians 3:5 Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.
Welcome to the family of God!
God bless you!
