"What does life mean?" "If God really cared then why do people have to suffer?" We were placed on earth for one reason, so that we could make a choice, between living with God eternally or living apart from God eternally. God has given us the chance to see how we like being separated from God. God is giving us the choice to see if we want to spend eternity away from Him, or with Him.
Mans sin condition is not so much that we sin but that we reject God when we choose to sin. Most of us do not realize that Jesus has already paid the sin debt for every single person on this earth, past, present, and future. (John 3:16 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. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.) Once we realize what He has done for us. All we must do is to ask Jesus to forgive us our sin, and accept His forgiveness. Allow Him to come into our lives, and sweep out all the garbage that's been cluttering it up. (Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21: I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.) We can now begin to trust in Jesus to take care of our future. We are no longer of this world when we do this but belong to the body of Christ. We are reconciled to God, because Jesus died for our sin, and we are white as snow in Gods eyes. Faith is knowing that no matter what Jesus loves me. That nothing will separate me from the love of God. Therefore no matter what happens in the world around me, I have peace. In the midst of confusion and death and despair I have hope. Because I know that He is in control and that someday I will be with Him. (Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32: He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 34: ...It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 38: For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39: Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.)
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. A simple prayer to ask Jesus into your life: Dear Jesus, I have emptiness in my life that I now realize only you can fill. I understand that my sin is keeping me from God. I am sorry for my sin. Thank you for dying, to take away my sin. I now invite you to come into my life. Thank you for restoring me to my Heavenly Father. I look forward to meeting you face to face. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.
