Merry CHRISTmas readers!
I would like to tell you the true story of the greatest gift that was ever given.
In the begining, there was nothing. Nothing that is, except for God. Then, God made man and gave him a set of rules to live by. Man disobeyed God’s rules and sinned which made God very sad. God wanted man to live with Him in heaven one day but that was impossible because man was polluted by sin and he couldn’t get rid of it.
But God loved man very much so He sent him a gift. That gift was Jesus, God’s son. Jesus lived a pure and sinless life. Jesus wanted man to follow God and obey Him but man didn’t want to. Man’s sin nailed Jesus to a cross. Jesus took man’s sins on Him and He died.
But that’s not the end. Three days later, Jesus rose from the dead. Death couldn’t hold Him. God offered man forgiveness. He is willing to forgive even the worst sin. But there’s a catch. Man has to confess his sin and repent (turn from his ways) and accept God’s gift.
Romans 5:8 says “God demontrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
When Jesus left this earth, He promised man that He would return someday. Then there will be a judgement where God will seperate his followers from the rest. God’s followers will recieve eternal life in heaven. But the rest will recieve eternal punishment.
Have you accepted God’s gift? If not, this Christmas is the perfect time to do it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comment section.
