Do You Know The Way To Christ?
September, 28, 2018
On our weekly Wednesday chapel, we listened to a message from Mr. Miller about the Four Spiritual Laws. He told us what the four laws are: God loves you, Man is sinful and separated from God, Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for man’s sin, and we must personally receive Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
The first law explains that God has a plan for your life. Mr. Miller gave an example from his own life, where he used to doubt himself before he met Christ. He gave us a couple of verses: John 3:16 and John 10:10. These two verses state that God loves us and has a plan for us. Mr. Miller also stated that his plan is filled completely. Mr. Miller asked,“Why is it that most people are not experiencing this abundant life? Devin from the 8th grade answered, “Because we are stuck with sin.”.
The second law states that man is sinful and separated from God. Mr. Miller stated 2 verses, Romans 3:23 and 6:23. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” This means that people were supposed to be with God, but we broke away because of our stubbornness and self governing will. The Bible calls this sin. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” This verse means that when we sin, we should die, but through Christ, we can have eternal life. Mr. Miller also said that sin separates man from God; man cannot get to God through works of their own.
Law three says that Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for man’s sin. This law means that Jesus is the only way to save us from our sin. He died for us, which shows the amount of love he has for man. A relatable verse to this is Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” We should also believe that Jesus was raised from the dead by God. A good verse for this statement is I Corinthians 5:3-6. The last point for this law is that Jesus is the only way to God. We were originally separated from God, so Jesus became the bridge by dying to pay for our sins.
The fourth and the final law says that we must all individually receive Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord. John 1:12 says, “Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,” This means that we can become God’s children by believing in Jesus Christ. We must also accept him by faith, and not by works. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.”, which is from Ephesians 2:8-9. Lastly, we must be willing to accept him and invite him to our hearts. The verse that supports this is Revelation 3:20; “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”
