Basic Christianity

Why do we need God?

Mankind was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) to walk in fellowship with Him. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate of the forbidden fruit, sin became a part of human nature. Romans 3:23 says “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. Sin separates us from a just and holy God. “The wages of sin is death, but the Gift of Gods is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23). So in order for us to be right with God we must be born again and believe in Jesus Christ as taught in John 3:3-9.

Who is Jesus Christ?

Jesus Christ is the true Messiah (Savior) promised to us in the Old Testament. He is the Son of God. Isaiah prophesied of His coming. John the Baptist proclaimed “Behold the Son of God who takes away the sins of the world” (John 1:29). Jesus himself states in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”. God even spoke from Heaven saying, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17). These are just a few of the many scriptures that declare Jesus as the Son of God.

What did Jesus do for us?

Jesus performed many miracles during His short stay on this earth. In Matthew 14:13-21, He fed five thousand men, women and children with five loaves of bread and two fish. He healed the sick, caused the blind to see, the deaf to hear and even raised people from the dead as the story of Lazarus in John 11:1-44. But Jesus’ main purpose was to be a living sacrifice for us. “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (II Corinthians 5:21). Jesus lived a sinless life, performed miracles, taught valuable lessons through parables and died on the cross for US! “But God demonstrates His own love towards us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8.
