Blogger Jenn said...! This is a very good question and I am going to try and answer it as briefly as possible but I have to be transparent and let you know I am not used to this. That is, I like to know a bit about the life of the person I share this with. It helps me to pray for them in specific ways. I would also love it if you knew me a bit. That way you can see that Christianity is not something I just talk's my life.
So, I guess I'll give you a little run down about what the bible says about us as humans. Basically, we are sinners (everyone of us). God created us and we fell into sin (The story of Adam and Eve)...Romans (in the bible) says "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23) The bible also tells us that the consequence of sin is death. (Romans 6:23) This is why in the Old Testament people made atone (or cover over) their sin. So, in order for God to show His love for us and forever atone for our sins He sent His only Son (Jesus Christ) to live on earth and then die for us. He did this as an ultimate sacrifice for us so that we would have eternal life and not be a slave to and dead in our own sin. (Read Romans 5:8) God also raised Him from the dead 3 days later to show us that sin does not have any power over Him. Christ conquered sin! Yay! In John 3:16, it says "For God so loved the world that He sent his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" So, this kind of answers your what do I need to do, question. Also, scripture says " That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord' and believe in your heart, God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved!!! For it is with the heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved!!!" (Romans 10:9-10)
The why question...well, Christ says "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6)
This is the quick of it. Of course there is SO much more and I am sure you have a ton of questions. I have been a Christian for going on 10 years now and I still have questions :o) I would love for you to e-mail me your reply. I want to hear more about you...or at least be able to give you a longer more thorough reply.
