In this atomic age knowledge is increasing, technology
is flourishing, and morality is dying. Man has conquered space,
smashed the atom, built skyscrapers, sent rockets into space,
and walked on the moon. But man has failed to conquer self,
to smash sinful habits, to build self-confidence, to reduce
crime and to elevate morals for God's acceptance.
Hundreds of space ships have left the earth carrying instruments
to measure temperature, pressure, sound waves, and radiation.
Space ships have carried men to study the earth, the moon,
the stars, and on other assignments.
The 20th century is named as atomic age. Man was able
to smash atoms in reactors, generate electricity; and to run
aircraft carriers, ships, and submarines. Isotopes of different
kinds of atoms have been used in many fields of science. Radiation
is being used effectively in many fields especially in medicine.
Man has been able to solve a lot of problems that puzzled
the scientists of former ages. He has solved the mystery behind
a lot of chemical formulas that have saved the lives of many
people. The mighty mind of man has been able to build skyscrapers
rising above the clouds. He has built machines that are sent
flying in the air carrying tons of goods, people and instruments.
Man appears so insignificant as he stands in comparison
to the size of the world, yet his brain is so powerful that
he has made another brain. He calls this the electronic brain
or computer. The computer has many functions. It can solve
problems, read, write, memorize and erase, but the computer
cannot solve the problem of sin that faces man. Surely the
computer cannot erase the sin of man.
Yes, nobody can deny the advancement of science and the
flourishing of technology. All the advancements and discoveries
in technology and science have failed to help man morally.
Man with all these discoveries has failed to conquer self
and is left in spiritual poverty.
Man is found chasing after lust, with self as the center
of his life. He has reached the moon but has failed to reach
himself. He has conquered the material realm but is miserably
defeated in the spiritual realm. The lust of the flesh, the
lust of the eyes, and the pride of life have defeated man.
Great engineers who design great airplanes, ships, space
rockets, super computers, bridges and tunnels are still unable
to design a successful spiritual life. These successful engineers
are defeated men spiritually. Sinful habits rule over their
lives and they can't design a plan for success, that will
insure them victory over their sinful ways.
They have succeeded in overcoming all the problems of
building their superstructure, but they have failed to build
their inner structure and to solve the self problem. They
have discovered many chemical formulas to save the lives of
many people, but they have not found the formulas to give
them forgiveness of sin, eternal life, or victory over sinful
habits. While science and discoveries are rocketing over the
clouds and up into the moon and the stars, morality is plunging
down reaching the flame in the bottom of the earth.
The hope of man to conquer will come only when men turn
back to God and accept the only Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord Jesus Christ will save men from sin, and will give
them power over sin if they believe on the Lord Jesus Christ
who died on the cross for their sins.
There is a door open before men. This door of hope is
to know the Lord Jesus Christ who said
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest." Mt. 11:28. Every person
burdened with sin, can by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ Who
died on the cross, receive forgiveness of sin.
God does not lie when He said. "In
whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness
of sins, according to the riches of his grace." Eph.
1:7. We can receive the forgiveness of sins, not by
advancement of science, nor by our good works, but by faith
as God has said. "For by grace
are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it
is the gift of God: not of works lest any man should boast."
What road will you follow? What way are you going to choose?
The Lord Jesus Christ said "...
I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the
father, but by me." John 14: 6. How will you choose?
This material world or the creator of the world?
Has the advancement of science blinded your eyes? Can
you still see your need for the forgiveness of your sins,
and the spiritual birth or in other terms the second birth?
The Lord Jesus Christ referred to it as being "born again".
"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, Verily, I
say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the
kingdom of God." John 3:3.
Do you want to be born again? Do you want the Lord Jesus
to forgive you your sins? Do you desire an advancement in
your spiritual life? If you say yes to all these questions
what are you going to do about it?
To receive eternal life you must believe what God has
1- You have sinned. "For all
have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Rom.
2- The penalty of sin is death. "For
the wages of sin is death...." Rom. 6: 23
3- Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Believe that the only
one that can save you is the Lord Jesus Christ who died and
shed His blood for the forgiveness of sins .
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while
we were yet sinners , Christ died for us." Rom. 5: 8.
4- Confess that Jesus is Lord. "That
if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt
believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto
righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto
salvation." Rom. 10 : 9-10 .
Finally pray and ask, believing you will receive. Bow
your head and close your eyes and pray this prayer.
Lord I confess that I am a sinner ,
forgive me my sin by the redemption you made for me in your
blood. Lord Jesus come into my heart and give me eternal life
as a gift. I pray this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I have prayed the above prayer and here
