But God became a sinless Man to make us righteous in His sight. The horror of the cross reveals how angry He is about sin. The fact that He sees lust as adultery and hatred as murder shows us its serious nature, and that fact should help us feel sorrow for what we have done.
Think of what God did to make things right. Jesus of Nazareth was brutally bruised for our iniquities . . . “yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him.” God loves you so much it pleased Him to make things right through the Cross, then He defeated the grave through the resurrection.
The Bible says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
God doesn’t want that to happen, so confess your sins directly to Him right now (you may not have tomorrow), put your trust in Jesus to save you, and you will pass from death to life.
Pray something like this:
“Dear God, today I turn away from all of my sins (be specific). This day I put my trust in Jesus Christ alone as my Lord and Savior. Please forgive me, change my heart, and grant me your gift of everlasting life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”
Then read your Bible daily, and obey what you read (See John 14:21).
Thank you for reading this.
