3. What can I expect?
FOR OUR PAST
Before we knew God and His love for us, we were ignorant of His presence and power available to us. Through Jesus’ work on the cross, in which He shed His blood for us, we can be forgiven of our sins. The Holy Spirit shows us our need for Jesus and His work on the cross, and helps us have faith in Him. When we accepted Christ by faith in His work (John 1:12), we are cleansed from our sins and born again in our spirit (John 3:3-6).
FOR OUR PRESENT
Now we can understand spiritual truths and relate with God’s word by faith. We can enjoy God’s love and presence! Through Jesus’ victory on the cross, we are free from our old attitudes, behaviours and habits. We are also no longer open to spiritual attacks and the world’s way of thinking.
FOR OUR FUTURE
We have eternity with God in heaven! God has promised that we will have all we need, and more, with Him forever.
TALK ABOUT IT:
Is it easy to accept that you have been forgiven?
How does knowing that there is an eternity in heaven ahead change your perspective in life?
