I am now on a guilt trip. If you have looked at my blog recently you will have noticed that I am really bad at writing entries. This is supposed to be an on line diary - I do keep a paper one better than this.
What have I been up to? Will that's my excuse. I have been really busy getting out and about telling people the message of Christ and His great salvation. As a result I have not had time to write my blog. I have been in schools, prison hostels, on the street (having meetings), working with other Christians having missions and generally doing all I can to bring the message of saving grace in front of people.
Why go to all this effort?
It's simple really. God has revealed in the Bible that we have all sinned and broken his law. We are guilty and stand condemned already by God. He is angry about our rebellion and will call us to account on the day of judgement IF we have not changed our minds and trusted His Son (Jesus) for salvation by then.
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. That is he was born of the virgin (Mary), lived a perfect life, died on the cross to pay the price for sin and came to life a again three days later as proof that he had paid the price for sin in full. That is he served God's sentence to take the legal consequences of our sin. He offers pardon and forgiveness if we turn from our sin and trust him as Saviour.
That's why I get so excited about the message of the cross. Will you trust him today. If you do be sure to e-mail me on Stephen.Baker1@virgin.net to let me know. I'll be praying for you.
