grace for the guilty

Cosmic Treason

 

Cosmic Treason

 

Though we did nothing to deserve it, while we were still guilty of cosmic treason, God provided a way for us to be saved and reconciled to Him. We were doomed to eternal death, but God provided a way out through His Son.

Cruel or Astounding Grace?

 

Many people struggle with the idea of Jesus being the only way to salvation, feeling that God is somehow being cruel. They fail to realize, however, that the fact that God provided ANY means of salvation is an astounding act of grace. And there is nothing anyone can do to earn that grace - it is a free gift!

What's Life All About?

Welcome to the third chapter in this study exploring The Great Questions Of Life. In this chapter we will discuss a very pertinent question: What is life all about? With all the war, pain and trouble in the world, some people think life is not worth living. For some of us, just getting out of bed in the morning is a major struggle. But, it doesn't have to be this way. Life can be very worthwhile. That is, if you use your life for what it was intended. . . and that is what this chapter is all about.

Why Were You Born?

You Need to Know

What would you think of a person who tried to use a straw hat as a cooking pot or a glass bottle as a hammer? What would you think of a person who used up all his life before finding out its purpose?

Until we put our lives to the use they were made for, we are like the hat on the fire, or the bottle used as a hammer. We destroy ourselves without finding the satisfaction of fulfillment.

God has a purpose and plan for your life . He has a work for you to do on earth and has prepared a wonderful home for you in heaven. You were born to fit into God's plan.

You Were Born to Be God's Child

You have learned that you were created for God's pleasure, to be His child, enjoy His love, and love Him in return. Whatever else you do, if you don't have this fellowship with God, you have missed the main purpose of life.

You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
(Bible, Psalm 16:11)

You Were Born to Grow in God's Likeness

For you, a child of God, life on earth is like a school to prepare you for eternity. Your experiences are lessons to equip you for the part you will have in God's kingdom. The problems and other things you suffer now are to teach you patience, faith, and obedience. They are to help you mature spiritually so that you will be more like your Heavenly Father. Let God make you the dependable kind of person He can use both now and in the world to come.

You Were Born to Work with God

You were born when you were, where you were, and who you were so that you could be a blessing to your family, your community, your country, and the world. God wants you to be His partner and work with Him . He will help you lead others to Jesus Christ and to a better life in Him.

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
(Bible, Ephesians 2:10)

Ask yourself:

· Does my life really please God?

· Do I accept suffering as an opportunity to develop patience and character?

· Am I doing what I can to help others?

· Do I live as though death were the end of everything, or am I using my life now to prepare for eternity?

· Do I enjoy fellowship with God?

· Have I started to follow God's plan in my home and community?
