Impacting your world. Have you ever thought of the possibility? It is something that is possible. The Bible says that each person has been made in the image of God (Gen. 1:26-27). As a result of this each person is valuable to God. When sin entered the human race, man’s relationship with God was severed and His image in man became marred (Rom. 3:23). Yet God in His great love provided the means for man to be restored to Himself. The Father poured out His wrath on the Lord Jesus Christ, for the sins of mankind, on the cross (Rom. 5:8-11). Through Christ’s death and resurrection we begin a relationship with God, through confessing our need and receving by faith Christ’s payment for sins (Rom. 5:1).
The Bible says that through Christ we become new creations (2 Cor. 5:17). The person we used to be, no longer exists. The sin, the guilt, the mistakes are all forgiven through Christ’s payment on the cross. God makes us a new creation, a new person. God also gave us a mission. The mission is to tell people about how Jesus’ death on the cross for sins and His resurrection from the dead has made it possible for people to:
* be forgiven for their sins
* have a relationship with God
Do you want to change your world? You can do it through fulfilling God’s mission in your life. Share Christ’s gospel whenever possible!
