God's got a problem
God's got a problem. He loves you and wants a RELATIONSHIP with you. He doesn't want you in Hell but with Him now and forever in Heaven. Problem is this: He is Holy and Heaven is a holy place yet you are NOT holy! You may be a decent bloke or gal but the judge is not your ma but perfectly Holy Creator God. Are you that good? He wants you in heaven yet its an impossibility. The last unholy person in heaven (Lucifer) got turfed out and took a whole third of the angels with him when he was cast down to earth...Hmmm...don't think God's going to soften the rules for you after that episode.
The solution was to have His perfect Son Jesus come on earth, live a sinless life (demonstrating His holy kingdom) and then die in your place. Now you can come to God (today) not in your own "Goodness" but HIs! Turn around, Humble yourself, say "God you're right, I'm wrong, forgive me" Believe that Jesus died AND ROSE AGAIN for you and Confess "Jesus you are my Lord (number one)". Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord (Jesus) shall be saved!
