There are billions of people on earth and all of us have the same problem – we are sinners. Every one of us – we are all sinners. So how do we solve our sin problem?
One way is to be a good person. Surely if someone is a good person they will be right with God, right? No it doesn’t. The Bible says “our righteousness is as filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6) So being good won’t solve the problem.
Ok, so man tries giving. Man thinks that if he gives money to worthy causes that will make him right with God, right? No it doesn’t. Man can give all the money he wants but that doesn’t make him right with God.
What about going to church? If man goes to church he will be right with God, correct? And the answer again is No, that doesn’t solve man’s problem.
If none of these things work, what solves man’s problems? There is only one thing; and that is believing in Jesus Christ. That’s it – believe in Jesus Christ and you will be saved. Paul wrote, “We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ” (Romans 2:).
So, has there been a time when you have believed in Jesus? If you have, then you are right with God. If you haven’t, you are still separated from God. I encourage you to believe in God today.
Now, someone may say, “I have questions about this whole faith deal….I want to get my questions answered before I believe.” Ok, I have questions too but I’m going to believe what I know and trust the Lord to answer my questions later.
Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6).
