In this condemned,hopeless and confused world we are living in, what hope is there for man?
Hurray!!! there is a middleman that can fix all of the world’s malaise and give abundant Life to those who want it.
This man name is Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, the only source of , love, joy and peace.
As I have already pointed out in Genesis; God commanded man that he was allowed to eat of every tree in the garden, except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 2:17; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shall surely die. KJV
This is saying to me that God was dealing with an innocent child and wanted it to remain like that, however, he also wanted man to have a choice, hence this tree of good and evil and his command.
I can understand that with my own children, asking them not to do something and done it anyway, it hurts. I was also guilty of that offence, but I am saved and no longer guilty.
In the same manner when God’s command was broken it hurt and man was condemned, which meant he died as God said.
However, as a Father he still loved his children and planned a way to save them from eternal death. Physical death he can’t do anything about but Spiritual he has done something about, that is the middleman Jesus Christ.
JOHN 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, (or condemned) but have everlasting Life.
The world was already condemned, therefore his Son, the Middleman could only save but we have to accept and believe in him otherwise he can’t do anything for us.
First we have to realize that he is God in flesh. He is the way, the truth and Life, no one could go to God the Father except through him.
And that means no one: No politics, no religion, no culture etcetera.
Second, he is personal, just like a father and child, your relationship is individual.
Thirdly, he has a Standard to live by; according to a slang It is a tall order which is impossible to live without him guiding you through his word and constant communication with him. (Prayer).
If we accept him we will feel the benefit of his presence. We will have a comforting peace, joy and love deep down in our spirits and the turmoil of this world just flow over our heads.
If we reject him we carry the burdens ourselves and end up in, you name it and God could do nothing about it, because of his love and he gave us a choice.
No one is innocent from birth, because of the tree of knowledge man chose, thereby making everyone of us guilty of sin until Jesus Cleanse us from our guilt by believing on him.
