Sin is More Than a Mistake

We all make mistakes. We all sin. Are they the same? No! Should we dwell on either one of them? No! We have hope. I once heard someone say God forgives our mistakes. No! Jesus paid for our sins. He saved us from our evil (sinful) nature, from what is in our hearts. If we accept that gift, we are saved from sin, we will receive God’s grace. Unfortunately, we have to live with our mistakes, but we can also learn from them. But sin is much more serious. Sin leads to death. Without the blood that Christ shed for us, we are doomed for hell. But, when we trust in Jesus, we have an inheritance in heaven. No matter what we have done in the past, He will forgive us.

The Narrow Way

Many people today think that there are many ways that lead to heaven. But there is one way and that is through Jesus Christ. He is the only way. It is not through doing good deeds or through priests or other people. It is through faith in Him. Trust in Jesus and you will be saved. That is what Jesus is trying to tell the people of His day (and us). The priests had added many traditions in addition to the law, but they didn’t get it. God wants a relationship with us.

It is a narrow road through a narrow gate in which Jesus is the door.

Grace is more complete than the Law. We are a new creation in Christ. The old self has passed away. There will be a New Heaven and a New Earth. He will make all things new.

Born Again

Jesus taught using many parables or other analogies to get His point across. In this study series we will look at some of them. The first is a discussion with Nicodemus one night where Jesus teaches Him about true salvation, not through a parable, but He uses several analogies. This may be one of the most important and most well known scripture in the Bible.

Zechariah – Jesus: Priest, King, Son of God

There are many scriptures in the Old Testament that point to Jesus Christ as The Messiah and He fulfilled them all. Zechariah had many prophesies of Jesus, the Son of God. We will discuss these in this and the next post. As foretold in scripture, The Messiah would come in the line of David. Jesus is the Branch, the root of David, the vine. As we abide in Him, we can have eternal life with Him. Zechariah tells of the coming Branch, who will come as a servant, but be both king and a priest.
