What is the Solution?
Jesus gave us the solution. In John 14:6, Jesus said:
“…I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father [God] except through me.”
Jesus came to earth as a human being to bring us back to God. If any other way would have worked, Jesus Christ would not have had to come. The way is a Person — Jesus Christ! Jesus has already taken care of your sin problem!
In Romans 6:23, Paul tells us:
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
God opened the way to eternal, abundant life with HIm because He loves us and wants us to know Him.
In Romans 5:8, the apostle Paul tells us:
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
St. Paul also tells us in 1 Timothy 2:5:
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus…”
God took the initiative. He has already corrected the damage done by sin. Now He waits for each of us to individually accept what He has done for us. Salvation is by God’s grace, not by our own efforts!
