God created all people in His image, giving them the gift of life on
this earth that He created. Because of the sin of Adam and Eve, their
sin nature has been passed on to all generations. God requires a
payment for sin, or all people will face His eternal judgement in Hell.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God who was God incarnate in the flesh, born
of a virgin conceived of the Holy Spirit, who made that payment for sin
on the cross. His resurrection from the dead proved He was
Son of God with power according to the Spirit of Holiness. Whoever will
believe in Jesus Christ, will avoid God's final eternal judgement in
Hell, receive the forgiveness of their sins, the promise of eternal
life in Heaven, and a new spiritual life to live now. God's Holy
Scriptures is the guiding way to faith in Jesus Christ.

the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not
far from each one of us.

to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
