|1. THE LAW OF THE FIRST|
GOD LOVES YOU; He has an amazing, wonderful idea about your life.
(The quotes in this text are preferably read in a biblical context.)
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life”
( John 3:16 ).
Christ said: “I came that they might have life, and had it in excess”, i.e. full life full of deep spiritual meaning. ( John 10:10 ).
Why do most people do not have this life “abundantly”?
|2. THE LAW OF THE SECOND|
THE MAN IS SINN AND DIVIDED FROM GOD. Therefore, a person is not in a condition to recognize, nor to test the love of God and his idea.
Man is sinful
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” ( Romans 3:23 ). Man was created in order to have fellowship with God, but because of stubborn self-will, man chose his own way. As a result, communication with God was broken. This self-will, which is expressed in active disobedience to God or simply in an indifferent attitude towards Him, the Bible calls sin .
Man is separated from God
“For the wages of sin is death” (spiritual excommunication from God) ( Romans 6:23 ).
This picture shows that God is holy, and man is sinful. A huge chasm divides them. Arrows show that a person is constantly trying to reach God and life abundantly with his own strength, for example, by good deeds, philosophy or religion.
The third law tells us the only way out of this impasse.
|3. THE LAW OF THIRD|
JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY THAT GOD IS THE WAY OF DENYING FROM HUMAN SIN. THROUGH HIM, YOU CAN LEARN AND EXPERIENCE THE LOVE OF GOD AND HIS FUN.
He died for us.
“But God proves His love toward us by the fact that Christ died for us when we were still sinners.” (Romans 5: 8 ).
He rose from the dead.
“Christ died for our sins … He was buried … and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and … appeared to Cephas, then twelve, then he appeared more than five hundred …”
( 1 Corinthians 15: 3-6 ).
Christ is the only way to God.
“Jesus said to him: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14: 6 ).
It can be seen from the picture that God threw the bridge across the abyss that divided Him and man, sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross in our place, in order to bear the punishment for our sins.
It is not enough just to know these three laws …
|4. THE FOURTH LAW|
We need to personally accept Jesus as the Savior and Lord; ONLY AFTER THIS WE CAN LET’S LOVE AND LOVE HIS LOVE.
We need to receive Christ.
“And to those who received Him, to those who believe in His name, He gave power to become the sons of God” ( John 1:12 ).
We accept Christ by faith.
“For by grace you are saved through faith, and this not of you, God’s gift not from works, lest anyone should boast “( Ephesians 2: 8-9 ).
Accepting Christ, we are born again
( John 3: 1-8 ).
We receive Christ through a personal invitation.
Christ said: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come to him …”
(Revelation 3:20 ).
The acceptance of Christ consists in turning to God from oneself (repentance) and deciding to let Christ enter our lives, forgive our sins and make us such people as He wants us to be. It is not enough to just realize by the mind that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for our sins. It is also not enough to have emotional experiences. The main thing is to receive Christ by faith. Accepting Jesus Christ by faith is the act of our will.

Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and accept You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and for the gift of eternal life. Take my life in your hands. Make me a person like You want me to be. Thank You, Great God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen
