Liars were not born liars. Thieves were not born thieves. Addicts were not born addicts. Don’t faint but, homosexuals were not born homosexuals. The one thing all of these segments of society have in common…in fact everyone that has been born shares this, we WERE born sinners. Sin left unchecked leads to many ways of separation from God.
Jesus Christ came to restore us through His sacrifice. There was nothing we alone could do to restore favor with God. Yet through the unselfish love of Jesus, the only son of God, He paid the price no one else was capable of to win our salvation. You don’t have to do anything to receive it except ask for His forgiveness. However, once you have received your salvation, you must turn from your old ways and seek God’s will for your life. He wants you to be happy, but the big picture is…He wants to spend eternity with you instead of being eternally separated from someone He loves so much…you!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
