Salvation

John 3:16-21

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”

“For God so loved the world…”God, creator of all things, loves us. He does not love the sin within us, but He loves His creations! God loves us so much that He sent His one and only Son to die for us. Jesus Christ died for our sin. God loves us so much that He lets us have a choice. The choice between salvation through Jesus Christ or living for ourselves.

God is love. Nothing in the world can fill the void that is the absence of that love. No amount of sex, drugs, alcohol, and other worldly made items can fill the emptiness. The only way to fill the emptiness is through a relationship with Jesus Christ. As Jesus says in John 14:6, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Will God see Jesus in you on Judgement Day? Will your name be written in the book of life (see Revelation 20: 11-12)? Will you hear “Well done my good and faithful servant.” (Matthew 25:21) or “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoer!” (Matthew 7:23)?

Know your salvation. Always be watchful and ready(Matthew 25:1-13), because nobody, not even the Son of God, knows the time for Jesus to come back. Only God the Father knows that time. Do not be caught in sin on His return. Instead, repent and live for Jesus, so you may have the knowledge that you will spend eternity with God. There is no purpose in life worth living for unless you know Jesus Christ.
