Some believe being a Christian is all about do's and dont's...some believe that others are
just born good and some just born not good or even that God is watching us closely so He can find something wrong with us and then punish us for it. That, my friend is all a lie! I don't treat my children like that and im sure you dont either, so why will
God do that to us then? He does not, its that simple.
John 3:16 tells us that God is love, and that He loves us so very much that He sent Jesus to earth to show and tell us more about how God The Father thinks and how He sees us and what lifestyle He wants us to live. We just have to copy Jesus.
Its that easy... and when Jesus, after a short life of 33 years was nailed to a cross, it was voluntary from His point and from God The Father's point. That was His mission. Thats why Jesus uttered these words before He died on the cross " it is finished".
I will put it in simple words "mission accomplished." He wasn't murdered. He died for us and the sins we did and will always do. He paid the price, so we dont have to. Some people think He paid for our sins that we did before we become a Christian only, and
then thereafter we are on our own and have to be perfect. That is another lie. He not only died for the sins we did before we became a Christian, but also for the sins we do after we become a Christian. We dont go around sinning intentionally, but we
sin because we are human beings in a sinfull world that is unGodly. We will never be perfect here on earth. All we need to do is confess our sins and acknowledge that we need His forgiveness. We are called to live holy lives by God. And we do this to the best
of our ability; we regularly read and study the Bible and we pray to God and we love our neighbours as we love ourselves. But when we sin and make a mistake, He is faithful to forgive us of that sin and count that sin onto Jesus so that we can be free from
it. Jesus became sin so that we can be sinless. And that process will never end...All we need to do is accept that. Its that easy.
If you have never done this before, right where you are talk to God. Tell Him you are a sinful person. Tell Him you are sorry for all the wrong things you have done and ask Him
to place it on Jesus and forgive you. Ask Him to help you forgive others who have been nasty to you and may have hurt you. Ask Him to hold your hand and help you to become a true Christian that reflects Him on earth. Get hold of a Bible and start reading
it, join a good church that loves Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
And if you want any help with any of this, please contact me. I would love to help you through this my friend. Remember, God is full of love for us, lets love Him back and love others.
