You were told to not push (click on) the red button, but you did.

You broke the rules. And that's what we do as humans. Except when it's God's rules... the consequences are very serious.

Here's why: you were created in the image of God. That means you represent who God is. You represent the character of God. And when you violate God's law, a law that describes God's character. You represent God as a liar; a thief; a murderer; and an adulterer. For example, how many lies have you told (liar)? Have you ever taken anything that does not belong to you, even something small (thief)? Have you ever been really angry with someone (think of driving in traffic)? In Matthew 5 Jesus said that when you get unjustly angry at someone you have murdered them in your heart (murderer). Have you looked at another personh with lust? Jesus also said in the Sermon on the Mount -- Matthw 5 -- that to look with lust is to commit aduyltery in your heart (adulterer).

You are guilty of breaking God's laws and defiling God's character. And the just penalty is eternity in hell. God is a perfect judge. A slick lawyer is not going to get you out of this one.

Your only hope is Jesus Christ. Two thousand years ago Jesus died on the cross paying the penalty you've earned for breaking God's law. You should have been on that cross. Insteas Jesus was their in your place. He died... and then He proved everything scripture says is true... on the third day He rose from the dead. Jesus demonstrated in an observable way, that there is life after death. Those you trust that Jesus has paid their penalty for sin (breaking God's laws) in full, receive Jesus' free gift. They will have eternal life.

If you reject Jesus. If you reject the cross. Then you WILL pay the just penalty you have earned for disobeying the God who created you and gave you life.

THE GOOD NEWS

The Good News


What makes this good news is the bad news about you:

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23

Sin means breaking the law. In this case God's law. This is bad news because perfection is required by God. Lawbreakers must pay the just penalty for breaking the law. That penalty is the lake of fire (the second death).

All liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. - Revelation 21:8

Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you, no matter how small? Have you ever looked at another person with lust? In Matthew 5 Jesus said:

You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.'

You have broken God's laws. You have sinned. There must be justice, and that means eternity in hell, the lake of fire, the second death. Unless...

Unless there was someone willing to pay that penalty on your behalf. Someone who will take on themselves the consequences you deserve. And there is. There is one person who can and will do that. That person is Jesus Christ. If you trust this is true, and repent (turn away from disobeying God), Jesus' death is applied to your account and you are freed from the penalty of sin to be with God forever.
