The cause of suffering is not
: Karma, Chance, Or your Zodiac signs,
1. We have turned our backs on God, the one who is greater
He made the Universe; He lives forever; He is full of kindness
and mercy, God loves us. He wants us to have a better quality
life & He wants to have
a closer relationship with us.
2. We all follow our own self-centered desires.
many people give honour to and depend on things which man-made
like idols, instead of giving honour to, and obeying our
creator. Some people try to depend on the power of evil spirits.
we leave God out of our life , we become self-centered. This leads to selfishness,
jealousy, anger, stealing, telling
lies, hurting others physically and emotionally, adultery,
broken relationships, immorality, addictions, hatred, exploiting
and oppressing others.
Due to the destructive nature of sin,
God must destroy sin, even though He loves the sinner. That
is why the punishment
for sin is death and eternal separation from God - [i.e.]
So, how can you be reunited with God?
1. Depend on God's grace
Grace means receiving something we don't deserve. None of us deserve to be
forgiven and accepted by God. But he showed His love and Grace, when he sent
his son, Jesus, to take the punishment for our sins by dying on our cross.
thieves were executed on crosses at the same time as Jesus. One mocked Jesus
and died a bitter death, carrying
his own sin and it's consequences. The other thief - admitted
his own sin, recognized that Jesus has authority to enter
Heaven, asked Jesus to accept him, was accepted by Jesus
and did not have to suffer the consequences of His sin.
thief had no goodness that made him deserve to be accepted by God. It was
because of God's grace that he was accepted.
Jesus takes our sin on Himself, so we can be free from the
bondage, guilt and punishment for sin.
2. Repent :
Like the thief on the cross, you must :
A. Admit to yourself and to God, that you are a sinner. You have not honoured
and obeyed God as you should.
B. Be willing to turn your back on your old self-centered way of life.
C. Change your direction. Turn around and follow God and his ways.
in Jesus :
A. Jesus Christ is God revealing himself in human form. He showed his power
over : Disease and Death -- Nature -- Demonic Powers. He taught with divine
knowledge and wisdom.
B. He showed His love by sacrificing Himself on the cross, breaking the barrier
of sin. He is the only way to be reunited with God.
C. he rose again from the dead, giving us the guarantee that he can give us
eternal life after death.
There is more to life..
Anyone who follows Jesus will still face difficulties
in the form of temptations, ridicule and even opposition. But
don't be discouraged. Jesus can give you peace and strength
to overcome anxiety and difficulties and you will have
the assurance of sin sforgiven and eternal life.
A suggested prayer for you
to ask God to accept you :
" God, Please have mercy and forgive our sins.
I want to turn away from my sinful, self-centered ways. I want to
trust in Jesus as my saviour and Lord of my life. I want
to follow and obey Jesus by the power of your Holy spirit
in my life. I ask in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen."
you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour,
please write to us today. We would like to pray for you and
help you in your spiritual growth.
Wishing you peace and
progress - John Sebastian
