For All First Timers

A message for all people who have stumbled on this blog:

Have you ever done something against someone else that you believed they would not forgive you of? Grudges and bitterness are often seen in entertainment, sometimes used as plot driver and sometimes used to show the righteousness in forgiving someone else.

All people have no doubt offended someone or been offended by someone in some way. It is a relief when either we are forgiven or forgive someone else. It makes life better and people happier. We should all desire to be pardoned and forgiven by God though.

Many people believe that they do not need to be forgiven by God, as they have not murdered or committed adultery or stolen anything, but the Bible, the Word of God says in James 2:11, “For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.” It also says in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;.” All people are accountable for God for what they have done wrong. God does not care if you broke a “little” law or a “big” one, as we have offended God, we must pay for are sins as he says.

The Bible says there are two ways sin can be paid for. “For the wages of sin is death;” Romans 23:3a. One way is eternal death in Hell and the Lake of Fire. It is like going to life imprisonment. It also says “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.,” in Romans 23:3b. The other way is through Jesus Christ, mankind’s Savior. This would be like someone volunteering to endure life imprisonment for us.

The Bible says in Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” If you do believe what the Bible says is true and trust Jesus Christ alone (excluding good works, saints, and prayer) to save you, Jesus will save you from punishment in Hell and the Lake of Fire and take you to Heaven. You can not lose this pardon and forgiveness once you accept it, as long as you do accept it.

God says in Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Though you do not have to pray to be saved, it is wise to show God, yourself, and others that you truly do believe by verbally or inwardly asking Jesus to save you and letting him know you believe and trust Him for salvation.

God says that you do not have to work to keep salvation. You are forever forgiven. I ask and beg that you accept Jesus now, “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” 2 Corinthians 6:2
