DISCOVERING GOD (2)

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Discovering God

a) There are many religions in the world because religion is man’s attempt to explain God and connect to God. Some religions (life-philosophies) even teach that you are god. However, there is one religion that is unique from all other religions, Christianity. All other religions say that you must do or become something to be accepted by God. You must work to become good like God. The Christian God is different. He is a God of love who reaches out to people and provided a way for people to be united to Him through Jesus Christ. The Christian God offers salvation as a free gift, to anyone who will believe Him and accept His gift. The Christian God is a Father and He says come to me and I will change you, you cannot be good without My help. 

b) Then Jesus said, 

“Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you. Let Me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NLT)

c) Jesus Christ walked on earth about 2000 years ago. His ministry only lasted for about three years however; He continues to make a far bigger impact upon history than any other person who has ever lived. Jesus Christ is the most influential person in history. About one-third of the people on earth claim to be Christians, far more than any other religion. Christianity is the main religion in 164 countries. Islam is the next largest religion and is the main religion of 50 countries. In Christian countries, Muslims are free to practice their religion but in Islamic countries, Christians risk death and persecution for being followers of Jesus Christ.


The End ...
