The Bible Says

The most important issue in life is to be in a right relationship with our Creator, the living God. It is more important than family, friends, work, or leisure. It will determine how we live this life and where we will spend the next. God has spoken to us through His Word, the Bible.

The Bible tells us what God is like

God is great, He is the maker and sustainer of the cosmos. God is wonderful, glorious and full of majesty. He acts with perfect justice and righteousness. God is good to all. God is love.

The Bible tells us what we are like

"All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" and "All we like sheep have gone astray". In other words we have all walked out on God. We are hostile to God and live to please ourselves. Because of this, none of us will be able to prove our innocence on judgement day. Many of us know this to be true. We have done wrong and deserve to be punished.

The Bible brings us the good news

God in his great love has made a way back to Himself through His Son Jesus Christ. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." Jesus went to a cross where the sins of men and women, boys and girls were put to his account. So when God came to punish the guilty, Jesus took the blame. "For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God." Therefore the good news is that through Jesus' death on the cross condemmed sinners like you and me can enjoy peace with God.

The Bible calls us to make a personal response

This Gospel of Jesus Christ comes to me as a friend to be welcomed and believed. I must finish with going my own way; I must repent; I must come to Jesus Christ and go His way; I must believe. God has promised forgiveness of sin, a new life, and the assurance of Heaven to all who repent and believe .

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6: 23
