Man from after the fall (See Genesis Chapter 3) has been trying to be God and hide from God.
Man bought the lie of Satan that if he ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil he would be like God!
Skip centuries to 2011. Man is still hiding from God and trying to be a god. He is trying to save himself with new-age thinking, with technology, and anything else he can invent.
But yet man never attains.
God from the beginning designed humans to have a relationship with Him.Genesis 3:8-9 says and they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, “Where are you?”
We have a peek into what mankind had with God before the fall. God would walk in the cool of the evening with Adam and Eve and talk with them. A Relationship! A personal relationship. It’s been God’s desire from the start and in 2011 it hasn’t changed any. God still is desiring a relationship with you.
God the Father had a plan to restore man to Him through Jesus His Son. it’s found in Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. It shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.
This came about much later we see through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ! (John 3:16)
We cannot save ourselves. Our condition is hopeless without the Lord God. It is through Him and only through Him that we can find salvation. Our works will never be good enough, no matter how good they are. It is through the gift of God that all of us can have eternal salvation.
God is holy, and our works cannot match up to His Holiness. That is why salvation is a gift. We cannot earn it. We must though receive it and believe that Jesus died for our sins and when we do we will be forgiven.
You might be reading this and say “what a bunch of religious crock!” If you are, you’re missing the point entirely. It’s through a relationship with the living God that you can be saved and know His peace and the only way we can have that relationship restored is through Jesus. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes unto the Father but by me.”
I found that God wants to fellowship with us daily just as He did centuries ago with Adam and Eve. He wants to commune with you. Would you like that?
If you would like to be forgiven of your sins and receive the Lord into your life, you can say this prayer or a prayer of your own words like it and mean it from your heart and you will be saved.
“God I come before you a sinner. I ask that you forgive me for all my sins, and come into my heart and be my Lord and my Savior from this day on. I believe that Jesus died for me on the cross, shed his blood for me and is risen from the dead and alive today. Thank you for saving me, in Jesus name; amen ”
If you said that prayer today, the Bible says you are saved and all of heaven is throwing a party for you! Your name is now written in the Lambs book of Life.
Becoming a Christian is the first step, living for God is a lifetime of steps.
I encourage you to read the Bible, attend a Bible-believing church, pray daily, and tell someone of your decision to follow Christ.
God loves you so much!
