  • The Bible is God’s Word, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16 NLT).     God’s Word does not change, no matter what people wish, think, believe, or don’t believe. 
  • God does not bend the rules to accommodate what people think, want, or wish for; He is always faithful to Himself, because that is His nature. 
  • God’s nature includes these attributes: holiness, love, kindness, compassion, justice, and faithfulness. 
  •  His attributes work hand in hand, and are never in disagreement, in other words, His kindness is not a reason to be unjust, or unfaithful. Loving mankind is not a reason for Him to overlook sin, that will be an insult to His holiness.
  •  His willingness to reveal His nature to man, and showing man how to have a close relationship with Him, was the reason behind Him subjecting His Son to suffering, the cross, and the grave.
  • He made a way of escape from the punishment man deserves by sending His own Son to die in the place of man.
  • He is the answer to all of man’s problems (see Matthew 11:28).
  • God has given man the liberty to make choices, (Deuteronomy 30:19-20), but has also made it clear that there are consequences to the choices he makes. In other words, if man chooses to live in sin, he is free to do so, but God’s holiness and faithfulness will demand judgment, justice, and sentencing, and punishment.
  • He plays by the rules He has set, not by man’s rules.
  • Out of His love for man, He sent His one and only Son to die to pay for man’s sin, in order to restore His relationship with man. He says, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31 NLT). Do you wonder why? Jesus provided the answer; He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me” (John 14:6 NLT). There is no other way! Are you going to play by this rule, or think you can figure out some other way?

  •      Jesus is coming back to claim for Himself those who believe in Him. He promised, “When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am” (John 14:3 NLT).
  • ·        Jesus hasn’t yet returned, because God is patient, and does not want anyone to perish. Instead, He wants everyone to repent (see 2 Peter 3:9). Unfortunately, one of these days, the wait will be over! He’ll come, and sad to say, it’ll be too late for many. Have you accepted God’s invitation, and if not, why not?

  • ·        He has a reward for all those who believe in the name of His Son Jesus. One of the rewards we can and should look forward to, is our being transformed into a state of immortality (see 1 Corinthians 15:51-53), and living with Him forever in heaven—a place where there’ll be no sin, pain, tears, or sadness. In the book of Revelation, Jesus declares, “Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds” (Revelation 22:12). You are included in “All people.” What kind of reward do you think He is going to give you?

Your choice! Choose now, and have the assurance and peace of mind.
