Becoming a New Person in Christ
This lesson will help you to determine the certainty of your eternal future with Christ. Even if you have invited Christ into your life, it is vital to have assurance that you belong to Him forever.
Most people live without the foggiest idea of what life is all about. Some even think life is a lucky “accident”.
God’s Eternal Plan
- Have you ever wondered what life is all about?
- How did you get here?
- What were you created for?
- Where are you going after you die?
On September 11th, 2001, nearly 3000 people died in a violent act of terrorism at the World Trade Center. They immediately faced their Maker. None started their day with any clue it would be their last day on planet Earth. You and I will also face our Maker at some point in the future. Then it will be too late to make a decision to live for God. Are you ready to face your Maker? The Bible says you can be ready. It says that you can be absolutely sure that, as one who trusts Christ, you actually have God’s guarantee of His acceptance.
How You Got Here
You are no accident! (See Psalm 139:13-18.) The Bible tells us that God created everything from nothing—and the Bible also says that it was mere “finger work” for Him. There are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on the entire Earth, yet God says you are more important to Him than all of them put together. Psalm 139 tells us that God’s thoughts about you as a person are more than all the grains of sand. He thinks about you and me all the time!
What You Are Here For
The Bible tells us God is your loving Father, who planned and designed you to be His child for all eternity. He wants you to share in the treasures He has for you in Christ. (See Ephesians 1:3-11.) God could have made you like a robot who had no other choice but to love Him. However, He wanted you to choose to love and obey Him of your own free will. And so God gave you free choice!
