God's Rescue Plan

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son [Jesus], that whoever
believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life". (John 3 v16)

Our problem
Our sins or wrong doings (no matter how small) have cut us off from God.
Our wrong doings prevent us from living as God intended.
Our wrong doings (unless something is done about it) will send us to hell.
Because of our sins we are in danger.

God's love
Despite our rebellion and failure to live as were meant to live, God still loves us and wants a  relationship with us.   However, we can only have a relationship with God if something is done about our sins (wrong doings).

What do we need rescuing from ?
Punishment for our sins.

God's rescue plan
God's rescue plan centers on his son Jesus. Jesus came to earth to pay the price for ours sins.  That is, he die on a cross to take the full punishment for our sins.
 

  The punishment for our sins paid for by Jesus's death
 

The following quotes are from the Bible:

 "... he [Jesus] came to serve and to give his life to redeem many people". (Mark 10v45)

     "At one time you were far away from God and were his enemies because of the  evil things you did and thought.  But now, by means of the physical death of  his Son [Jesus], God has made you his friends, in order to bring you, holy,  pure, and faultless, into his presence" (Colossians 1v21-22)

     "..Jesus came into the world to save sinners ..." (1 Timothy 1v15)

After dying Jesus was raised from the dead by God.   Those who repent of their sins and put their faith in Jesus will have their sins dealt with and forgiven, and hence they will be able to live for eternity with God.

Will you be rescued ?
One day each of us will die and face God's judgment.

Those that have rejected God's rescue plan will be punished for every wrong thing that they have done or thought.   They will be separated from God forever.  It's important to note that the Bible tells us that God knows all our thoughts and everything that we have done. (Refer to Psalms 139).  No one can fool God.  (Galations 6v7).

Those that have accepted God's rescue plan will be welcomed into God's presence in heaven.  They will not be punished for all their wrong doings, as the punishment for their sins has already been dealt with by Jesus.

The following quote is from the Bible:
     "Whoever believes in the Son [Jesus] has eternal life; whoever disobeys the  Son will not have eternal life, but will remain under God's punishment"  (John 3v36).

Will you be rescued ?  The choice is up to you.

Terms:

faith in Jesus:   By this we mean that :
 i) you  believe that Jesus' death has paid the price for your wrong doings.
ii) that you will seek live your life according to Jesus' instruction.

repenting of your sins:  To be sorry for your sins,  to tell God that your sorry for your sins, and to seek to turn away from your sins.  You are not repenting if you say that you are sorry and yet plan to continue doing the wrong thing.

sin:  Sin is essentially doing things our way instead of God's way.  Daily we disobey God and sin through such things as dishonesty, boasting, swearing, hate, greed, and gossiping (to name a few).  The more we learn about God and his will for our life the more we realise just how much we sin.
