Today, we are going to learn truths concerning a Treasure that we all have. Thanksgiving recently passed, and we were thankful for many things. What were you thankful for? I am honestly thankful for the book we have in front of us today: it is our treasure: it is how we know God. I begin today with this question, what is the primary, main, purpose of this Bible? Exactly, it is a book that mainly reveals how a loving God saved humanity. It is, as many have put it, a love letter. However, in this love letter, God uses history and mysteries to show how He loved and currently loves humanity. For example, it is a history book because it reveals stories concerning humanity and its stories. Who can tell me a story? Yes, and the first story to ever …show more content…
It is in the New Testament where we find the ultimate blessing, who is, no other than, Jesus Christ. In the perfect moment, Jesus Christ came to die on a cross. Can anyone tell me why did Jesus Christ come to the world? Yes, Jesus Christ came to die for humanity’s sins. That includes you. He died for your sins. Everyone in this room has sinned, has done wrong in the eyes of God. All of us, deserve God’s punishment, but instead, He sent His Son, who is, Himself in flesh, to be a sacrifice. He took your spot on that cross. Because we have done wrong, we deserve the cross, but God took it from us. Because we have done wrong, we deserve hell, but God paid the price. Why do you think He did this? It is simply that He loves you, and, He will never stop loving you. Sadly, after the death of Jesus, the only people who knew this good news, that is, Jesus died for our sins, were the Jews, the descendants of Abraham. Why do you think the Jews were the only ones who kept the good news? Well, it was that just as you saw those animals dirty, they saw the other humans as dirty. Does God view some people cleaner than others? No, all without Christ are dirty: the Jew and Gentile alike. According to Paul quoted in Romans 3:10, “There’s nobody living right, not even one, nobody who knows the score, nobody alert for God. (MSG) There’s none righteous, no, not one.” But to them, the …show more content…
Now, in closing, we have learned how God see people. He sees everyone the same. He does not look at the skin color, the house he or she may live in, or the height of the person. God sees the heart of every man, every woman, every girl, and every boy. Some people become happy when they hear that God views the heart. But in all reality, to me, it is a scary thought because I feel the feelings I want to do, and many of them are evil. I do not want to the right thing. I only want to help myself. God sees the sin that it has, our sin. We have all sinned, and our hearts are nasty because of that. No good deed or good work will every clean it. However, Jesus made a way. He came to live a perfect life. His blood, His death, took our spot. Now, when we believe in Him, His blood, His death, cleanse our heart. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whosever believes in Him shall not parish but have everlasting life.” With Jesus in your heart, God sees the clean, pure, heart of Jesus. Jesus took our sins, our dirt, our pain, to death and we, in faith, get His righteousness, His goodness, His peace, and life everlasting. A good way to be assured that you have Jesus is by your actions and by an experience that occurs. In the Bible, there is a story of the Spirit of God cleaning the hearts of men, whereby they began to speak in other tongues. They were also baptized in His name, in Jesus name.
