The Ultimate Problem-Solver

If someone comes to me with a problem, I'm more inclined to solve it than to empathize with the person, a trait more stereotypically found in men.

Regardless of what problems we have or had, there is no bigger problem than sin. Sin separate us from God, and bring us condemnation to eternal torment of hell. What other problem can be bigger than that?

Our sins gave us the worst problem, God gave us the perfect solution:

1. Incarnated His Son on earth to live a perfect life, so those who put their faith in Him can be clothed with His righteousness.

2. Sent His Son to die a gruesome death for our place on the cross, so His justice can be done.

So what are YOU going to do with this amazing God? Ignore Him? Do good deeds to appease Him? Call on Him only when you're in trouble?

How about: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength." Mark 12:30

Sounds great, isn't it? But how's THAT going to be carried out?

To be continued...
