If you know what God says about becoming a Christian, would you do it? This is, your Future Life! If you know what God says about becoming a Christian, would you do it?

Here we are talking about you, about your future life!
It's the most important subject in the whole world!
The most important subject you will ever hear.

Let's get into what exactly the gospel is.

1st Corinthians Chapter 15, Verses 1 to 4:

That Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.

Mark 16:15-16:
"And the one not believing will be condemned,"
or as similarly written:
"He that believeth not shall be damned."
What is it that those who will be damned don't believe?

Now please think about this. Those who do not believe the gospel (truth) will be damned in everlasting torment in hell. Now just how important is believing the gospel? It's a matter of eternal life or eternal death. Now, if it's that important, you had better know exactly what the gospel is, because if you don't know what it is, you can't believe it.

Romans 1:16-17. It is the Power of God to Salvation.
But: In verse 16: it is the power of God to salvation to everyone believing.  Now, that is very very important.
It's not the power of God to salvation to everyone who hears the gospel, it is the power of God to everyone who hears it and believes it.

But, what is the power of God to salvation. It means that God has chosen to display His power to save His people through His gospel and, there is no salvation apart from the gospel.

In verse 17: "for in it, (the gospel), the righteousness of God is revealed."   In verse 16: "For I (Apostle Paul) am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ." Why is Paul not ashamed of the gospel? Because it is the power of God to salvation! Why should anyone be ashamed of the very thing God uses to save His people?   Never, because in the gospel the "Righteousness of God is revealed!

In Romans 3:9. First, we see that every human being is unrighteous by nature; there is no difference between the pagan, immoral Gentiles and the religious, moral Jews.
Our righteousness does not even come from one's best efforts to keep the law. In Romans:3:21, we see that the righteousness of God is revealed apart from the law. This means that the righteousness of God has absolutely nothing to do with our law-keeping. It has absolutely nothing to do with our attempts at obedience and service.

So what is this righteousness?

Romans: 3:22-26: The righteousness of God is through the faith, or actually, the faithfulness, of Jesus Christ. The righteousness of God has to do with Christ's faithfulness.

Romans: 3:24,25: "Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation through faith in his blood."

Jesus Christ alone accomplished justification, redemption and propitiation. Romans: 3:25: "for a showing forth of His righteousness."

To propitiate means to appease or to pacify. Christ appeased or pacified God's wrath when the sins of His people were imputed to Jesus Christ, when Jesus Christ became sin for His people, and He incurred the judgment for that sin. There is no fellowship with God when there is sin. Why is that? It is because God is righteous.

Righteousness is the opposite of sin. So in order for God to fellowship with sinners, the sin of those sinners must be punished in a "substitute man" who was and is totally without sin. The only one who qualifies for that is Jesus Christ who took on the sins of His people, and God punished Christ for our sins, and God was pacified.
God was at peace, not at war.

To redeem means to pay the price for a possession so as to rescue or deliver that possession. Ransom is another word that is used. Christ's blood paid the price for His people's sins and bought them as his very own.

What did His people do to make themselves into God's own possession?  Absolutely nothing. It is Christ alone who paid the price. We had nothing to pay. Nothing that we ever did or were enabled to do would pay the price. It is only through the blood of Christ.

How does God show His righteousness not ours?
Romans.3:26: "for His being just and justifying the one that is of the faith of Jesus." Here God talks about His own justice. God is a just God. This means that God, is faithful, and is faithful as to "bless those who are righteous", and "curse those who are wicked".  But, please hear further:

Gods justice demands that all who are not righteous must be punished. Now to justify someone means to declare that the person is righteous and not guilty. But Romans:3:   States "that there's no one who is righteous!"  And, we read that no one will be justified by his best efforts to keep the law!

So how can it be true that God declares some to be righteous who have no righteousness in themselves? It can only be through the perfect righteousness of "a substitute"! That substitute is Jesus Christ, who alone lived a perfect life.
He obeyed "The Law" perfectly for his entire life.

So how does God declare you or I, to be righteous, when it is only Jesus Christ who lived a perfect life? The answer is in Romans:4. Paul first shows that Abraham could not have been justified by his works. He says that justification is not by works; instead,
God (alone) justifies the ungodly.

What does it mean that God counts righteousness apart from works? It means that God justifies the ungodly based on a righteousness that is counted to him. Another word for this is imputed. It means legally charged to the account of another. 

Jesus Christ lived a perfect life and was perfectly obedient, even unto death. This righteousness of Christ is imputed to or counted to or charged to God's people. Even though God's people are not righteous in their own character and conduct, they are counted righteous because the righteousness of Christ is imputed to them.

We can here see how God remains "just" and does justify those who are "not righteous in and of themselves".

Thus: Sin is imputed to Christ, and then righteousness is  imputed to God's people. As in Romans:1, "the righteousness of God is revealed in the gospel".  The gospel means "good news."  It is the good news that God saves (from eternal damnation) His people based on this  imputation!

When the sins of God's people were imputed to Christ, Jesus Christ endured the wrath of God for those sins and paid the price in full. When the righteousness of Christ is imputed to His people, God declares His people not guilty.


This is, or can be, you good news! Call upon God now, whilst there is still time.  He is calling you and is waiting for you to respond.  Calling on God is little different to normal conversation, talk with him now, whilst He still waits!


Did you accept Jesus Christ as your own personal Saviour?  Who, are you trusting in? Did you accept Jesus Christ as your own personal Saviour?
