What you believe about Jesus Christ will determine what you think about when you read the cover of this book. Do you think about your past failures?
God is drawing you to Himself through Christ Jesus, He is not counting up your sins and holding them against you, He has cancelled them…..all of them…… and He has wiped your slate clean”.
The bible says in John 3:17 Jesus did not come into the world to condemn the world, He came to save the world. If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross as the sacrifice for your sin, then you are “born again”.
What you believe about Jesus Christ will determine what you think about when you read the title of the book of EGHAY. When Jesus died He washed your sin away. You are completely forgiven of every nasty thing you’ve ever done. But something was also added to you that day and that was His righteousness. (Romans 5:12-19)
Therefore, having been made righteous by faith you are now holy and pure before God. Your slate has been wiped clean like the blank, empty pages of this book, not because of your good behaviour but by the grace of God through faith. Salvation is a completely free gift. You can’t earn it and you don’t deserve, so just receive it by faith.
If you haven’t experienced God as a loving Father that wants to be a part of your everyday life, then maybe you haven’t received His free gift of salvation by grace.
