John 3:16-17, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
This is perhaps the greatest preacher's passage in the Word of God. John 3:16 to me says it all. Christ died for our sins. Verse 17 tells us that Jesus didn't come into the world to condemn sinners; but rather, to save us.
With that precious truth in mind, one can only imagine why today's preachers have strayed so far away from THE TRUTH of the Gospel. Jesus died on the cross for our sins. He was buried. Three days later He miraculously resurrected from the dead. This is “the Gospel” (or, Good News) according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4.
I woke up today and a moment of awe came over me, realizing that God has already given His gift of eternal life to me. To think, I am going to live forever!!! Wow! I don't think it will ever completely sink in until I actually get there! I certainly wouldn't want to live forever in this sinful world, with this hurting and broken down body, but the Lord has promised us a new immortal body (Philippians 3:21), and a new home in Heaven (John 14:1-3), and all things from God (Romans 8:32). That all sounds real good to this ole boy! I want the best quality 5-string banjo in Heaven, one that Jesus picks out for me. He knows what I want and need better than I do. I want the best backing tracks. I want to make beautiful music to cheer people's hearts.
Do you have eternal life friend? You can and should! God is offering eternal life along with the forgiveness of all your sins as a free gift, just for the taking by faith. Simply admit to God that you are a guilty sinner, and BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. Acts 16:30-31, “And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”
RUN from all these lying corrupt preachers today, who falsely teach that more than faith is required. They foolishly teach that you must also repent and turn away from your sins to be saved. You cannot show me that garbage from the inspired King James Bible!!! My beloved Bible simply tells me to BELIEVE the Good News of Jesus Christ to be saved. Anyone can have eternal life right now, for free, just by believing that Jesus did it all for you. Christ paid your debt of sin, and mine. Thank God!
