The extent of God the Father’s love and good intention toward mankind is beyond measure.
God’s dedication to His original purpose for man, allowed Him to provide a means for mankind to receive a pardon for the sin of our forefather, Adam. Adam’s sin (the act of disobedience) sentenced us all to be condemned, due to the inherited DNA of sin in our flesh. God’s mercy and divine provision allows the sacrifice of Jesus Christ to have the power and potential to redeem mankind from sin, for those who choose to believe in Him. True belief goes beyond verbal confession, true belief – belief in one’s heart (one’s mind) starts us on a path of yielding and being committed to God, presenting ourselves to Him daily to be used and being restored through the work of His Holy Spirit (sanctification). Jesus who knew no sin, gave his life for you and I, on a cross, and died in a most painful and agonizing way. However, He rose again with all power in His hand. What then shall we render unto the Father for all His mercy? What can we offer unto Christ for His sacrifice? Hopefully, the scriptures below guide you to the right answer; the answer that leads not just too mere life, but now life more abundantly.
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He who believes in Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
4 But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
24 Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
2 Corinthians 5:20
20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
