The Bible says that God created us to have fellowship with Him. He created Adam and Eve with complete perfection. All was well until sin entered the picture. Because of sin, Jesus said that in this world we would have tribulations and hardships, but to be of good cheer because He has overcome the world. (John 16:33)
You see, God so loved the world that He sent His only son, Jesus Christ, to redeem the world; to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. And so Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for you.
Are you to the place where you desire to hand over your wounds as well as your heart to God? Paul explains it so simply in Romans. He says “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (3:23). “You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly” (5:6). He died so that we would have and find life.
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved” (10:9–10).
