Every choice that man makes comes with a consequence. Some consequences will provide growth for life, while others deterioration till death. As pertaining to our relationship with God, and where our soul will spend eternity, the choice is Heaven or Hell. We have the will to choose life over death. Sin unto death, or righteousness through faith unto Salvation.
What Is Sin?
Sin is anything that separates man from God. Sin began in the Garden of Eden, through Adam's disobedience. Disobedience is the sin that continues to separate man from God. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). Salvation!
What Is Salvation?
Salvation is the saving of the soul from sin's consequences; it is being reconciled back to God. Salvation is God's redemption plan through Christ Jesus' shed blood on the cross. Salvation is being delivered from death to life. There's nothing material that man can do to be saved. One must repent: turn from all of his wicked ways, and believe in Christ Jesus through faith.
What Is Faith?
"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Our faith must not waiver."Without faith it is impossible to please God: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.(Hebrews 11:6). Faith in God must endure to the end toward salvation.
Choose Wisely. Choose Life. Choose Jesus
