What The World Is Saying To God
What God Is Saying To The World & What The World Is Saying To God
“And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” – Matthew 3:17
What God Is Saying To The World:
This is my beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. He has come to pay for your sins by his death. No other payment for your sins is needed and no other sacrifice for your sins is acceptable, because your sins are many and my standards of righteousness are too high for you. And therefore, the penalty is far beyond your ability to pay. It is not by our works of righteousness but by God’s mercy that salvation is obtained and entrance into Heaven is granted.
What The World Is Saying To God:
But we have our idols, our gods and our sacrifices. We don’t need YOUR Son!
But we have our prayers, our pilgrimages and our alms for the poor. We don’t need YOUR Son!
But we have our science, our wisdom and our self-righteousness. We don’t need YOUR Son!
But we have our popes, our penances, our dead saints, and best of all, our Mary goddess. We don’t really need YOUR Son alone!
But we have our church membership, our good deeds and our baptism. We believe that your Son needs our assistance.
“How shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation?” – Hebrews 2:3

Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
