Welcome to Trunk or Treat. My name is Mike Wright Im the pastor at Harvest Bible Chapel ; you're in our parking lot, glad that you're here. This is Rob Sackett. Rob is a good friend as well as a pastor here on staff at the church as well and we're glad that you're here. We just wanted to share something with you. This probably is your first time to visit with us and we were thinking about if you were here for the first time, what would be the thing that we would want to talk to you about or share? We believe that would be talking to you about a message out of the Bible , about God, and about His provision So I want to ask you this; have you ever thought about how sure you are about getting to Heaven? Are you 100% sure that you can go to Heaven? The Bible says that you can have that assurance. So lets talk about that a little bit. Rob, you're thoughts on this right here. I love that question and I had to face it in my life; am I 100% certain today, that if I die today would I go to Heaven. Then Ive taken it one step further and ask myself, if I stand before God, and He says "Rob, why should I let you into Heaven", wow...that really struck me It really struck my heart to say how would I answer God? So what do you think about that? So lets talk about it a little bit. So, The Bible gives it in two big pieces really and one big piece talks about our problem. Our problem is sin and the Bible says "All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God" So the sin is the piece that seperates God and people. So that gets in the way. God loves people but He hates our sin. So that sin, we got to get that piece taken care of. Does the Bible say anything else about that? Well it does in fact it talks about sin and it says "The wages of sin is death" "But the gift of God is eternal life" Boy I've thought about that passage a lot to and what it makes me think of is that eternal life is actually a gift, and being a gift theres nothing that I can do to earn it or deserve it. I can only receive it. So...but it still makes me think more about the whole situation. Lord I understand that I have a problem with sin...Im spereated I can do nothing on my own then, whats next? So, sins separating us were talking about that its the problem. God says its got to be paid for. So the solution that God gives us, He says is that Christ died for us. The solution is Gods son. God says, "You don't need to pay for your sin Mike" Rob, we don't need to pay for it. But what it did say is "I'll pay for it for you" and in doing that He says it was a sufficient price for your sin, and He says he'll wash not only your current sin away, but the past and future as well all in one shot because of what Jesus Christ did on the cross He not only died for our sins, but the Bible says He was buried and rose again and now sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us. I love it. In fact, I love one verse it says "God demonstrates His own love for us in this; while we were yet sinners, Christ dies for us." Which is tremendous What a great love! A lot of people ask "Hey whats my part in all this?" And I think its a really good question right? People asked Jesus that question "What do we have to do to go to heaven?" 2000 years ago when Jesus was walking the earth and he says this is what you have to do... BELIEVE in the one whom God has sent. And it says that a little bit further in Romans 10:9. It says that "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved!" Isn't that awesome? What a great promise that is! I love the promises of God and He does make the promise that you don't have take care of it, that He has taken care of it and we just need to believe that. Believe or receive the gift that God has given to us. We're glad that your here and glad that you gave us a chance to share this first, most important message with you We hope its a great time. If you want to talk, come by and connect with us, or anybody from our church that has this little chevron here. God bless you and have a great day!
