"The Word became
flesh and made his
dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory,
the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
(John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”)
Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
John 1:14-17 NIV.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God, He is part of the Trinity - they are the three people who form one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
He came to earth not as God but as man to pay our debt - the price for our sins. So because He died on the cross in our place, we have all been reconciled to God.
Humanity was separated from God because of the original sin of Adam who disobeyed the Lord's order and ate from the forbidden tree.
At that moment, sin killed Adam and Eve - it wasn't a normal death, but it was a spiritual death. It means that man was completely separated from God, because man became a sinner.
God is holy and does not dwell in the midst of impurity, evil and corruption, that is, sin. With that, human beings lost all contact with the Lord that was previously unrestricted.
Sin spread a curse over the Earth, leaving it susceptible to all kinds of evil such as: natural disasters, disease, poverty, wars and death.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23 NIV.
Adam's fall affected each of us, we are born sinners and we can't help but sin before meeting Jesus, the flesh has complete control over us.
What is the flesh? We call "flesh" all kinds of bad desires that only harm us, it is our nature that has been corrupted - the flesh only wants to do evil and sin.
But! God reversed this situation, He provided a way for us to be free from sin and live a holy life in abundance.
Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, after we accept Him, we are connected with God and we have free access to talk to Him. Furthermore, The Lord gives us full ability to overcome the flesh.
Today everyone, anyone - including you, can be reconciled to God through faith. God's Grace gives us forgiveness and grants us free access to be with God.
Best of all - He's NEVER too busy to listen to you, that's right. GOD, the Creator of all things, ALWAYS HAS TIME for you. He loves you and wants to give you a long and happy life.
Just believe, if you still haven't accepted Jesus and want to accept Him - it's simple, pray with your words asking God for forgiveness and saying that you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, that's my model prayer:
God forgive me for everything
wrong I've done, I want to be better but I can't. Please transform me into a person you want me to be.
I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior, from today my life is yours.
Guide my steps through
the path I should walk, hold my hand so I don't fall or deviate from the right path.
In the name of Jesus,
Amen and thank God.
