We can be so opinionated at times that we often forget that we have a Creator. Imagine if you bought a new car and the manufacturer said the car should only use unleaded gas and you thought to yourself, ‘I know better, I am putting diesel!’ It won’t be long before the car completely shuts down.
The Bible says, ‘There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.’ Proverbs 16:25 Just for a second imagine if you created a person with play-dough and it was lifeless. You bend over and breathe life into your creation and waited in anticipation as it moved for the first time, as it smiled, walked, ran and jumped. Finally, as you beheld your work of love with joy, you listened with joyful expectation to hear its first words. It opened its mouth and began to speak: “I don’t need you!”
In the computer world when software is released it is not uncommon for it to have bugs.
It appears that “Human ver.1.0” is filled with bugs of pride, lust, vanity, rebellion and ingratitude. No amount of fixes or patches can fix us.
We are in dire need of a total upgrade. When you were born no one had to teach you to sin, you never went to sin school or the Center for the Arts of Lust – sin happened naturally. We were all born with a sin nature and we all need to be upgraded to “Saint ver.7.0” or we will crash. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
In the computer world, there are a bunch of guys called “Hackers” and their job is to find vulnerabilities in software and exploit them.
Satan’s hackers have found many vulnerabilities in “Human ver.1.0” and have infected all humans with the virus called “Sin”.
This virus has spread from one man Adam and has infected the whole human race with disastrous results such as broken marriages, abuse, sexual perversions, and many more wicked effects. The virus “Sin” eventually leads to total failure, death and eternal destruction.
You wouldn’t dream of surfing the Internet in a world filled with Hackers without having a good anti-virus. An antivirus is something that destroys and removes viruses from your computer. Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Anti-virus, once you install Christ in your heart; He destroys every sin from your life. Satan’s hackers may try to infect you but Jesus will combat them and destroy their works. Jesus will watch over your soul and give you victory over every attack of Satan.
Do you want a free upgrade today? The Bible tells us, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” – Romans 3:23. God’s grace is willing to give you a free upgrade and turn you from being a sinner to a saint in Christ. The Bible declares “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.”
Ephesians 2:8,9. Salvation is God’s gift to you; you need only to repent from your sins and receive it by faith.
When you receive Christ, it is like installing the universe’s best antivirus.
He is going to live in you and change you; He will hunt down sin in your life and make you free. He will defend you from Satan’s every attack and turn you into a child of God. Why not pray to receive Christ today and get your free upgrade?
