A gap between us and God
Lots of people are all alone in the world. God knows firsthand about alone-ness. Tons of years ago, only God existed. God was, but
everything else wasn't; He was alone. So he created the moon; the sun; the animals; the plants; the day; the night; the seas; the
stars -- and it was good. But not good enough. He was still alone.
Then God created a man and a woman. He finally was no longer alone.
He had children to love, to talk with, to walk with. "Behold, it was VERY good" (Gen. 1:31).
God intended for them -- and for us,
their descendants -- to know Him personally as a Father forever. But we all chose to go our own way instead of His. Our sin created
a gap between God and us, tearing the relationship apart and separating us from Him (Isaiah 59:2).
Now, God is a just God. Sin could
not go unpunished (Rom. 6:23). Yet, He didn't want the penalty of death to be inflicted upon the people He loved so much -- even though
we had turned our backs on Him.
The solution? A substitute. An innocent party to bear the punishment for us. Jesus Christ, God's Son,
was the only one who could do it (Acts 4:12). Only He was sinless. Only He was willing to die for us, the guilty ones, though He Himself
had done nothing wrong.
Through faith in Christ, you have eternal life, new life. You are forgiven of your sins (Acts 11:43). You come to know God personally
as His child (John 1:12). You aren't alone in life -- the Lord Jesus Christ said, "I am with you alway[s] (Matt. 28:20). You're destined
for heaven, to live eternally with God (Col. 1:5). You have ABUNDANT life available to you here on earth (John 10:10).
Jesus is the
bridge between you and God (1 Tim. 2:5). He is the only way to the Father (John 14:6). If you want to have a personal relationship
with a loving God and receive new life, pray this out loud:
I believe that Jesus died for me on the cross and rose from
the dead. I repent of my sin and acknowledge Him as my Lord and Savior. Come into my heart, Jesus. I give my life to You. Help me
to follow You every day. Amen.

Jesus Christ, God's Son/born a human, died on the cross in our place, bearing our sin. Then He rose from the dead to new life -- ready
to give new life to anyone who will believe in Him.
