A plan for your life…
In the beginning, the all-powerful, personal God created the universe. This God created human beings in His image to live joyfully in His presence, in humble submission to His gracious authority. But all of us have rebelled against God and, in consequence, must suffer the punishment of our rebellion: physical death and the wrath of God.
Thankfully, God initiated a rescue plan, which began with His choosing the nation of Israel to display His glory in a fallen world. The Bible describes how God acted mightily on Israel’s behalf, rescuing His people from slavery and then giving them His holy law. But God’s people – like all of us – failed to rightly reflect the glory of God.
Then, in the fullness of time, in the Person of Jesus Christ, God Himself came to renew the world and restore His people. Jesus perfectly obeyed the law given to Israel. Though innocent, He suffered the consequences of human rebellion by His death on a cross. But three days later, God raised Him from the dead.
Now the church of Jesus Christ has been commissioned by God to take the news of Christ’s work to the world. Through the Gospel (the message of good news that our sins are forgiven) God’s Spirit, calls all people everywhere to be sorry of sin and to trust in Christ alone for our forgiveness. Repentance and faith restores our relationship with God and results in a life of Thanks Living for Jesus.
The Bible promises that Jesus Christ will return to this earth as the conquering King. To those who believe in Him Jesus gives eternal life. The Apostle John writes in his Gospel about the life of Jesus:
John 20:31 (NIV) “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
God’s Plan for your Life! It is really the same for everyone – to bring you to Heaven.
