Jesus Is The Answer – People Need The Lord
“In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”
“Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.” 1 John 3:15
As much as men try to get around it by every human means and scheme they can devise, the truth remains the same. There is no life apart from God and no peace, no rest for the soul, apart from Jesus Christ. He is the answer the only real answer for all the world’s ills.
The soul of everyman, that is, all humankind, walks in darkness until the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ shines in his heart. Though some may have heard and still rejected the truth, there are still many more who have not heard. And that is our calling and privilege to tell them that Jesus is alive, that He loves them and that He died to save them from death, hell and the grave, to give them eternal life freeing them from all sin and unrighteousness.
“But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.” Romans 10:6-12
Access to the gift of salvation is as close as the words in our mouths.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
