SERIOUSLY IN NEED
Seriously in need solution
1) Did you grow up in a home where there was organized religion?
2) Were you forced to go to church?
3) Were you exposed to "DO'S and DONT'S, stand up, sit down...YOU KNOW...confess your sins?
4) Were you abused physically, emotionally or spirtually?
5) Have you had a BAD "CHRISTIAN experience?
6) Do you think God is punnishing you?
7) Do you believe God can't forgive you for stuff you've done?
8) Do you have a hurting heart?
We’re ALL seriously in need. We're seriously in need brought upon by a problem that happened a long time ago. My parents didn't do a good job at all because they too were seriously in need most likely because their parents were seriously in need too. You see this issue of being seriously in need has been passed down to us from the very first humans. You know our world is a mess and so serious in need and the solution has been hidden from us in religion and a system that is so serious in need. The solution for being seriously in need or lets call it what it is...SIN cannot be taken care of by us trying to apease God through good merits and religion trying to reach God through good works for that's not what moves God.
WE’RE ALL BORN WITH A ROUND HOLE IN OUR SOUL
We all go through life trying to pound square pegs through it. "This will make me happy, no maybe this will make me happy". "No, maybe this will". What’s the real problem? Why do I feel “Separated from God?” "I'm just not happy". People are broken. Dreams are chattered. Hearts are hurting...why?
Romans 3:23 “For ALL have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God”.
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of SIN is death (separation from God) but the gift of God is ETERNAL life through Jesus Christ our Lord’.
CAN I BE A GOOD PERSON AND GO TO BE WHERE GOD IS?
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by Grace are you saved by faith, and NOT of yourselves, it is the Gift of God”.
Titus 3:5 “Not by Works of righteousness that we have done, but according to His Mercy He saved us, by the Washing and Regeneration and Renewing of the Holy Spirit”.
WHY CAN’T I UNDERSTAND SPIRITUAL THINGS?
1 Corinthians 2:14 “But the Natural Man receives Not the things of the Spirit of God, for they are Foolishness to him, neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned.”
WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
I know you’ve heard this expression and the answer is faith in Christ and Christ alone. Not religion. It’s as simple as just trusting in Him. Remember when we were a little child and how simple it was to just believe? That little kid faith? Remember that innocence that was robbed from us as we got older?
Mark 10:15 “Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, Whosoever (that’s you and me) shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter in”.
Look, Jesus himself is telling us it’s Child Like Faith, not the religiosity we were exposed to growing up or see all around us today.
John 3:3 Jesus said, “Except a man be Born Again he cannot see the kingdom of God”.
John 1:12 But as many as received Him to them he gave power to become the children of God even to them who do nothing but believe in His name”.
John 5:24 Jesus said, “Verily I say unto you, he that hears my Word and believes on Him that sent me has everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation but is past from death unto life”.
That round hole in your soul can never be satisfied with the things of this world for SIN has left us with a need that only God can satisfy. Do you hunger? Do you thirst? Are you tired and weary? Matthew 11:28-30 "Come unto me all you that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest". Take my yoke upon you and learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart and you shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light".
John 6:35 Jesus said, “I am the bread of life, he that comes to me shall never hunger, and he that believes on me shall never thirst”.
1 John 5:12 He who has the Son has life, he who has NOT the Son has NOT life.
John 14:6 Jesus said, “I AM THE WAY, the Truth and the Life, NO MAN comes unto the Father, BUT by ME.
Romans 10:9 That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe that in your heart (mind) that God raised Him from the dead you shall be Saved.
CAN I BE SURE?
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now NO condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk NOT after the flesh but after the Spirit.
Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, He who began a GOOD work in you, will perform it until the Day of Jesus Christ.
Colossians 2:10 And you are Complete in Him who is the Head of ALL rule and authority and power.
SO WHAT DOES PLEASE GOD?
Remember that child like faith? That round hold in the soul is only SATISFIED when we fill it with the round information of Gods Word. When we activate FAITH it moves God for it’s His plan. Hebrews 11:6 "But without FAITH it is impossible to PLEASE God for he that comes to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of then that diligently seek him".
Prior to trusting Christ the God of this Universe looked down at ME and He saw what?...He saw someone seriously in need or SIN. SIN brought on by the man Adam and his disobedience. Jesus you see is the go between that God used due to Christ's sinless nature to repair that separation between God and man. Adam gave us SIN and death. Jesus repaired the seriously in need issue or SIN and gives us LIFE. When God looks down at ME now what do you think He sees?
He doesn’t see someone seriously in need or in SIN anymore...He see’s His Son.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 When I heard the Good News about Jesus and how He came in the world and lived, died, was buried and on the third day he rose again in order that we may live as well…well, that my friend is the Gospel. That my friend is the Good News. I got on my knees and prayed to the God of this Universe this simple prayer.
”God, thank you for sending your Son Jesus Christ to die for my sins. To die in my place. I confess I am a sinner and I thank you for forgiving me. I believe that Jesus is the savior of the world and now my savior. I am trusting you and I ask you to guide me and teach me what it is you now have for me…in Jesus name…
…As soon as I said that simple prayer something wonderful happened….my very first NEW thought was…I loved my father….the strange thing is though….I hated him.
Remember, as a little child we trust God at His Word. Don’t trust your feelings and the things of this world's ideologies.
Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, "Whosoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter in".
Religion says…”Do something”…genuine Christianity or being born from above says…”it is done”…just believe. God will meet you right where you are.
Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way that you should go, I will guide you with my eye”.
That verse on the front page of our website is also on each bottle of Geno’s sauces. John 8:12 “I am the light of the world, he who comes to me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life”.
