If the Bible truly is the Word of God and all that is written in the Bible is true then what God has done for all of mankind is the greatest, most noble and kindest expression of love. There is none to compare with this great gift of love that God offers to everyone and it is given to anyone who will receive it. A person would be absolutely stupid to not receive this gift. The Bible says that this gift that God has to offer is the highest form of love and there is no sorrow with it. There is nothing that can be added to it and there is nothing to take from it to make it better.
I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it, for God has so worked that men should fear Him. Ecclesiastes 3:14
To fear God means to have the highest respect for Him and to understand that He alone is God and everything belongs to Him and is subject to Him. He does whatever He pleases.
For I know that the Lord is great
And that our Lord is above all gods.
Whatever the Lord pleases, He does,
In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps. Psalm 135:5,6
It pleased God to offer you this gift of love. This gift comes at a great cost to the Lord and it is offered to everyone, regardless of the good or bad they have done, for no one deserves it and no one can be too bad to receive it. It is a gift and the Lord, Himself, paid the price to offer this gift to you.
But the Lord was pleased
To crush Him, putting Him to grief;
If He would render Himself as a guilt offering, Isaiah 52:10a
The gift of love that God offers is the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ and the payment for all of our sins that we have ever done. Jesus Christ took our guilt and the punishment of our sins on the cross. Jesus Christ shed His blood for the world.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
Every person has to make a choice about Jesus Christ. You can choose Him to be your Lord and Savoir and receive His forgiveness for your sins or you can ignore what Jesus Christ has done for you and your sins and guilt remain with you. The end result of sin and guilt is death and eventually, when a person dies, eternal torment and punishment in hell.
These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 2 Thessalonians 1:9
If a person chooses the Lord Jesus Christ then they receive Him as their Lord and Savoir and start following Him. They are transferred out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light. Jesus Christ comes into their life and they start to truly live, rather than merely exist or survive. They receive a new heart. Their sins are forgiven, their guilt is removed and they become a new person. They begin a new life with a new plan for their life that is good and perfect for them. They become a child of God and become a part of God’s eternal family.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, John 1:12
When a person receives Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savoir they receive a great love.
See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. 1 John 3:1
Often people will ask how a person becomes a Christian. Everyone believes in God when they come into this world. For this reason, a person has to be taught that there is no God. When a person sins then they try to block God out of their mind and as they continue to sin they turn their back on God.
Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin. James 4:17
Everyone has sinned. Sin is going your own way and doing what you want to do. Just as sin is turning your back on God, repentance is turning to God and turning your back on sin.
Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; Acts 3:19
Becoming a Christian is repenting and coming to Jesus Christ through faith and receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savoir. It means you are trusting Him to lead and guide your life. After a person becomes a Christian then they learn to follow Him and obey what He says in His Word, the Bible. As a person does this then he will experience God’s love, God’s peace and God’s joy in a way that is far greater than he could ever have imagined.
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:8-13
There is no partiality with God. Whoever, means whoever will believe in Jesus Christ will not be disappointed. God has given a choice to all and whoever chooses Him, through receiving Jesus Christ will be saved from their sin and receive eternal life. Whoever ignores or rejects God’s offer then their guilt and their sin will remain with them forever.
“Today if you hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts, Hebrews 3:15a
If you are hearing Him call you to Himself, then come to Him. He loves you.
