Life Without Christ

“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, {2} in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,{ 3} among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. {4} But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, {5} even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), {6} and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, {7} that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. {8} for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God”.
 (Ephesians 2: 1-8).

Clearly, these verses tell us what the state of man was without Jesus, we were dead in sin, Satan had a firmer grip on man and consequently, the man was going to end up with the Satan in hell.

The truth is that hell was never meant for the man that God created. Hell was designed and created for the fallen angelic beings headed by Lucifer – Satan
“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels”
(Matthew 25:41 ).

Hell is a place of extreme torture where the sinner is condemned to a lake which burns with fire and brimstone perpetually; there is no death there, but unimaginable pain, agony, and distress. Imagine being eternally condemned into a sauna of sulfur which is heated a billion times over, no water to relieve thirst, no break from torture and no death to relieve the torture. This is where Satan was leading man into, by turning the man against God and luring the man with pleasures and riches of this world which are nothing but temporal.

Praise God! In His mercy, rescued us from this eternal destruction through His begotten Son – Jesus.
“He (God) has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love (Jesus), 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins”
(Colossians 1:13-14).

Jesus actually came to the world to save mankind from what might have been eternal destruction. He defeated our enemy (the devil) at the cross and declared it was finished (John 19:30). Our deliverance from the enemy was accomplished through the shed blood of Jesus –

“For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins”
(Matthew 26:28).

Precious and sinless blood was shed as full payment for the penalty of our sins.

Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law; He was made to be sin for us who knew no sin, paid the penalty of sin – died, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. In the process of securing our deliverance, Jesus also took our infirmities, bore our sickness and became poor that we might become rich through His poverty.

Nothing else can make man right with God except the blood of Jesus. Only by believing in Jesus as the resurrected Son of God and confessing Jesus as Lord can a man be saved –

”Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved”
(Acts 4:12).

When you acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life then He gives you the right to become a child of God,

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name”
(John 1:12).

I hope you will reconsider your ways, acknowledge Jesus Christ in your life and follow Him with the whole of your heart otherwise hell will be inevitable.

A life without Christ is a life destined for an eternal crisis! 

Now acknowledge Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
