can't you just say "God" and speak of
"God's Love"? Why must you insist on using
If Jesus is God's Son, and God chose Jesus to reveal
Himself to the World, then God Himself has insisted on
it! These are God's conditions, not ours: "Love Me,
love My Son!" The Bible says, "All men should
honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He who
does not honour the Son, does not honour the Father Who
sent Him."--John 5:23.
God is our great, kind and loving Heavenly Father, and He
loves each of us very much. And He wants us all to
experience and know the wonderful Love, joy and
satisfaction that comes from personally knowing and being
close friends with Him.
But sad to say, all of us have done wrong at one time or
another, and have been selfish, unloving or unkind to
others.--Or even to Him, our Heavenly Father! He tells us
in His Word, "All have missed the mark and have
fallen short of the perfection of God.--Romans 3:23.
God knows that no matter how hard we try to be good, none
of us can ever be good enough to come into His perfect
presence through our own self-goodness. But Jesus is
perfect. And because He was willing to come to Earth and
suffer and die on the cross for us, to take the
punishment that we deserve for our wrong-doings, we can
be forgiven for all our failings and be reunited with our
great and loving Heavenly Father if we will simply accept
Jesus' pardon and Gift of Eternal Life!
It doesn't matter how bad we are, no matter what we've
done, if we will simply ask Jesus to forgive us and
receive Him into our heart, we will be forgiven and
saved.--Which means we will not only know God's wonderful
Love and peace here and now, but when we die, we will
inherit a never-ending life of Love and happiness in
No mere mortal man, be he prophet or teacher, sage or
guru, could possibly do what Jesus did!--Only God Himself
in the person of His Own Son could pay the price for our
failings, and take the punishment that we deserve. Only
God could have done that in the person of His Son Jesus.
This is why Jesus alone could rightfully proclaim Himself
to be "the Way, the Truth and the Life."
There is simply no other way to make peace with God. He
will not accept any other terms, any other deal. In
Jesus, the one thing that needed to happen for Mankind
happened in such a way that it never needs to happen
again! It is for this reason that we can claim with
certainty that for the greatest ailment of humanity there
is only one specific remedy.--Jesus!
If many different groups of pathologists were all
earnestly seeking to discover the cause and cure of
cancer, and one group--through no brilliance of their
own--were to discover the secret, would it be
"narrow-mindedness" or "bigotry" for
them to share what they had found with all the other
groups, and indeed with the entire World?--Of course not!
In fact, it would be the utmost folly, selfishness, lack
of love and dishonesty were they to keep the secret to
themselves!--This is why we who have personally found
Jesus, do all we can to share Him with others.
