Why you should be a Christian

A separation resulted between man and God once Adam sinned.

SIN BECAME THE GULF BETWEEN MAN AND GOD. in order for God to dwell among his creation, he gave the commandments to Moses, which were rules for Holy Living. Because God is Holy He cannot exist among sin, it is either sin, or holiness, both cannot co exist.

Our destiny was eternal separation from our Heavenly Father.

Before Jesus, the only way to be righteous was to live according to the laws that God gave Moses and if someone unintentionally committed a sin/crime, they could offer a sacrifice to God. The animal that was chosen had to be one that was completely without blemish. They were also required to make restitution if they had sinned against a neighbour/brother. God required a blood sacrifice for sin. Intentional sins were punishable by death.

Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

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

Because of His love, our Creator provided a way back to Him. ALMIGHTY GOD PROVIDED A BRIDGE FOR MAN.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

JESUS BECAME THE BRIDGE TO THE FATHER. Jesus was the unblemished sacrificial lamb which covered unintentional sin. He also took the place of the one who had committed an intentional sin. His blood paid the price. Only through Jesus is there forgiveness of sin, both intentional and unintentional sin.

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

God’s undeserved gift cannot be paid back, it is free.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

Jesus is the only way to the Father, the only BRIDGE

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the rather except through me.

Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.

We cross the BRIDGE by confession of our faith in the way to God.

Romans 10:9 That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
