Could the Bible’s Message Be Any Clearer Than This?

Saint Paul's Contributions to the New Testament | Britannica

Have we heard and understood the message?

Read these words from Paul, in 2 Corinthians 5: 4-5

“For we that are in this tabernacle [our flesh] do groan, being burdened not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality may be swallowed up of life.

Now He that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given us the earnest of the Spirit.”

Did you get that? God created us to have eternal life. Yes–that “selfsame thing.” If you were wondering why God created us, that’s why–so we could have eternal life. That’s what Paul is telling us.

That’s the message. Listen.

  1. The fall of mankind doesn’t seem to get much press, these days, even though it is something we should be aware of, and understand. While does God allow bad things to happen? Because we are alienated from Him. We have redemption, through Christ, but in the meantime, we have the multitude of problems we have because we live in a fallen world, and this is abetted by the fact that there are many people whom refuse to accept the need for salvation.

    When creation had been accomplished, God saw that it was very good. Once all is restored, it will be very good again. We see glimpses of the goodness, but the final state will be when everything is good, all the time.
