"We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. Matthew 3:22-23 (NLT)
Are you right with God? This is a serious question and yet most of us don't spend much time thinking about it. Somewhere along the line we have developed our own theory of how to be right with God. It usually involves doing some good, at least more good than we think we have done bad. But the Bible tells of a different plan. It talks of a God that loves us and has made a way that we can be forgiven. It shares how receiving Christ as our personal Savior will bring us into a right standing with Him. Through putting our faith in the sacrifice of His son, Jesus on the cross, we become God's child and are born again into His family. This brings us into a whole new relationship with God and we are made right with Him. Today, you can have this relationship. Accept Christ as your own Savior, ask Him to forgive your sins and make you His child. Put your faith in Christ's sacrificial death on the cross for you and you will have a right relationship with Him.
