Rebecca St. James - "God Help Me"...Horribly made video, but I don't care; I just love this song!
I just want to share something with everyone here about what the Bible says about us and eternity.
First off, Romans 3:23 says, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God";
That includes you and that includes me. We are all sinners-- we do things that are selfish, wrong, and against God.
Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
So we're all sinners, and the punishment for our sin is death. Eternal, spiritual death in Hell. This is what we deserve. This is what God's justice demands. But God loves us so much that He wanted to make a way for our salvation.
John 3:16 says, "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."
Romans 5:8 says, "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Jesus as God was able to pay the penalty for ALL of our sins when He died. He took on the full wrath that was meant for us, thereby paying our debt.
Romans 10:9 says, "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;"
Jesus died and rose from the grave, conquering death and sin. If we call upon His name, accepting His gift of salvation, He will save us. He will forgive us. He will come into our hearts, become Master of our lives, and change us forever.
Our purpose is to glorify Him. In mercy He offers us a chance to live.
Praise God! :)
