There is no other way to be saved from our sinful nature than through Jesus, the Son of God who died on the cross so that we might be reconciled to God the Father… there is no other way… no other way.

To a world full of people who need to feel like they control their own destiny, who believe they can gain everything on their own, who know in their hearts that they are capable of greatness on their own, this message is foolishness. They try every day to fill their lives with accolades, possessions, power and happiness when all along they are working at a fool’s errand.

No man can ever fill the void in his soul that craves completion. Only the triune God can complete us, only Jesus can send the Holy Spirit to show us the way back to the Father. Satan knows this and he tries his best to confuse us with his lies about our abilities and powers, whispering in our ear that we can go it alone, that all we need is to have more faith in ourselves, that we can do it all.

In the end, all we will have left is our soul and our faith. If our faith has been in things of the world we are lost for eternity. But if our faith has been in Jesus then we have found an eternity with God beyond compare.
