Action Speaks Louder Than Words, And Why Did Christ Had To Come? God is a Concept by which we measure our pain

Most gods we see, know or read about are all generally portrayed to be powerful and dignified. Most would sit on a high place somewhere up in the irony tower of haven glancing down. Some looked kind, some stern, some blank and some lost. Some would thrown down lightnings or other forms of calamities as they deemed fit. Ocassionally, some goodies are dispensed. Some of the gods judge based on their moods or the weather. Almost all would need to be appeased by human’s offerings so that life on earth can be a little more bearable. Most would dish out seemingly right teachings to attain impossible divinity or immortality, often by human’s own slogging. Some would need to be ‘bribed’ to ensure great prosperity and health.

Some people believe there is no god because of the above.

But there is one God who existed before time. He came down willingly from His supreme place in heaven into His once perfect creation but fallen and stained with sins that causes all the sickness, suffering, war, death, and ultimately, separation from Himself. He did not want to lose anyone of His beloved creation to the state of sin that renders death, so instead, He took the death upon Himself making an atoning sacrifice for the sins of all who would believe. In doing so, He rescued all of those who believe in Him by redeeming them, blood for blood.

A God who came and died a painful death as a man for mankind.

By doing so, anyone who believes in Him, death has no power on them, the believing sinner is set free from the power and dominion of sin. This reconciliation removes the sin barrier between the believer and God; it restores friendly relations with God. The result of reconciliation is fellowship, acceptance, and favor with God. The name of this God is called Jesus.

Action speaks louder than words.

 Action Speaks Louder Than Words, And Why Did Christ Had To Come? The Grace of God

 

“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.    John 3:16-18
