What this means to mean

In this picture you see Jesus holding up a man who in turn is holding a spike and a hammer. That man is me! I don’t mean that I was the real model for this picture, I mean that I am one of the people guilty of the death of Christ. You see when Christ hung between heaven and earth he was dying for my sins, which are many, and I am as guilty as any of the Roman soldiers, or Pontius Pilate, or any of those on the Jewish counsel who had either accused Him, sentenced Him, or drove the nails into His hands and feet. You see ever since mankind first sinned against God in the Garden of Eden we have continually, when given the choice to, choose sin over God’s will, which created a gap between us and God. This gap or chasm (if I may call it that) is created because God demands sinless perfection and we cannot attain sinlessness by anything that we do. There are no holy scales in Heaven where our good deeds and evil deeds are weighed out and if our good is greater than our evil God says “Ok you’re allowed to enter”, no from the first time we ever willingly chose to be disobedient to God’s perfect will, we doomed ourselves to an eternity in the Lake of Fire, but God loves us, and does not want to sends to eternal torment, and in His great love for us He sent His only begotten son to carry our sins to Calvary, to die in our place for the crimes we committed against Him. The sinless dying for the sinful. This act was done out of love for us, not because we deserved it, but because God loves us. This means if you know that you are a sinner and deeply and dearly want to be forgiven of your sins all you have to do is ask Christ to be your Savior and believe that He will, in fact in the book of Romans it say (please forgive my paraphrase) that if you believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that God raised him from the dead, and confess Jesus Christ with your mouth then you will be saved! If you go on with your life rejecting this truth then you call the Holy Spirit a liar and sentence yourselve to an eternity of torment in the Lake of Fire. Even though (as I said in the beginning of this blog) I am guilty of the death of Jesus Christ, I will not be condemned for it, but because of Jesus’s sacrifice and my belief in Him, I have been forgiven, and today it is my greatest desire to share and help others to understand this great gift that God has given.
