One of our log's: The bible at hand
Why Christ for you?
The Christadelphians or Brothers in Christ are convinced the world needs Christ Jesus, the Nazarene Jew Jeshua, born in the tribe of King David, some two thousand years ago, who was impaled after only doing the will of his heavenly Father, the Only One True God of gods.
That man of flesh and blood gave his life to pay a ransom for all people who are sinners, are man with faults, having had the relationship with the Creator Deity at a certain moment in their life damaged. The relationship between God and man is restored by Jeshua, better known today as Jesus Christ.
The Christadelphians or Brothers in Christ do believe all people should come to know the works of this particular special teacher or rabbi, who did several miracles or incredible things and was resurrected from the dead after been three days in the grave.
Man, created in the image of its Divine Creator has in him the feeling there has to be something to connect with and to be a meaning of life. Inborn is there a "search for the special connection or the sacred". We are all facing the problem of imperfection and that bothers us much. We would love to be perfect and from childhood onwards we want to reach to that perfection, wanting to become better than we are at that certain moment in life.
All people are facing the same problem of imperfection and wanting to be the better or the best.
When born our voyage in life starts and gets us to think about a lot of elements in life. Throughout our life we get lots of questions and not always answers. We all look for ways to get some answers and to feel ourselves at ease. Religion and spirituality are all about what we feel and think deep within our precious, delightful, individual souls. The true God calls us outdoors into a history that sweeps us into its wake. Yet we are stubborn beings often preferring to do our own will and loving to keep to human traditions which seem to give us much fun, not realising that the other way of life may give us much more satisfaction.
Biblical faith emphasizes that we cannot ascend to God on our own; rather, the God of the Bible descends down to us. Our inner self is not the playground of "spirit," but the haunted plains on which we build our towers of Babel. In other words, our hearts are idol factories, in bondage to sin and spin. As Jeremiah declared, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?" (17:9). We look for a god we can manage rather than the God who is actually there.
In Romans 1 and 2, Paul affirms this. He says that everyone knows God exists and is a sovereign, righteous, and all-knowing judge. Jew and Gentile alike know God's moral will and so "are without excuse," but "by their unrighteousness suppress the truth" (1:18-23). Quoting the psalmist, Paul presents the universal indictment: "… all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, as it is written, 'None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does well, not even one'?" (Rom. 3:9-12).
Given all this, we need to receive an external word from outside our hearts and to our hearts—one that stops our spin and gives us new hearts even as it is spoken. That's just where Paul turns next in Romans:
Searching for that perfection we should come to see who was perfect or who of man managed to stay clean and pure. Jesus Christ was the only man who managed to do that. He was the only man who managed his whole life to stay pure, doing not his own will but always doing the Will of his heavenly Father, the Only One true God, Creator of heaven and earth.
In Jesus Christ This Divine Creator and His Justice, the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it. We therefore think that everybody should come to know the other name in the world which is important for all mankind, namely Jesus Christ.
The Most Important or Most High Holy Name is the one of The God of gods, the Elohim Hashem Jehovah. This God has given an only begotten beloved son, whose name is Jeshua or Jesus. That son of God showed the way to his Father in heaven and should be known as The Way to God and the Way to the Kingdom of God. That Kingdom is what is promised by the Creator and is the final idea of His Creation. The Kingdom of God is the space we should all come to reach on our voyage in life.
All people in the world should come to know that we can have the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe and that we all should be partakers of the love of Christ and of the Body of Christ. Without Christ Jesus we would be nothing, because for there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Though we may have the sacred hope that god accepted the ransom brought by His only begotten son Jesus. That son of man and son of God gave himself for us so that we can be justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in him Christ Jesus.
Human beings like to create their own world and spheres. Their hearts create spiritualities, therapies, and programs that arise out of our natural knowledge of the law, which we distort. Outside our hearts, and at the core of special revelation, is the surprising God, known uniquely in his Son.
There are, however, strong forces that tempt us to grasp the divine on our own accord and man likes to make their own gods. Everywhere in the world you shall be able to find people being called god or idols which are worship as half god or as god.
With "Christ For You" the Brothers in Christ or Christadelphians do want to show that Christ Jesus is the Messiah, the long awaited saviour for all our problems. We would love to get you see and understand that Jesus is the only Way to restore our relationship with our Creator. We do need Jesus. Without him we are nothing. We also want to show you why it is so important to follow the teachings of this master teacher who lived about two thousand years ago.
We shall be happy if we can bring people to understand who Jesus of Nazareth really was, what he has done for mankind and how he is the Way to a better life and the Way to the Kingdom of God, where there shall be peace for ever.
If the apostle Paul is right, people will come to know Christ only through our public testimony — the one thing our culture precludes, except when the likeminded meet as a voluntary association (Romans 10). One of the tasks Jesus had given to his followers was to go out in the world and to preach the Good News of the coming Kingdom of God. We as followers of Christ follow up that what Jesus asked his disciples to do, going out to witness about him and his heavenly Father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob, Who was also the God of Jesus and his disciples. Jesus wanted this God, Who is greater than him (John 14:28), Jesus said, to be know. Jesus also said he could do nothing without that God (John 5:19), the Superior Being and we too should know that we are nothing without God in our life.
To come to know The Only One True God it is best that we also come to know Jesus his teachings and take his words and that of the previous prophets as words we should follow.
We do know that there is a great problem that we cannot see God and that it is very difficult to proof His existence. We all have doubts and we wonder a lot about life, why, for what, how.... Further is there the problem of our "search for the sacred" being warped by idolatry. God is incomprehensible in His essence: immortal, invisible, eternal, unapproachable Light (1 Timothy 6:15-16), the sight of whose face we cannot survive (Exodus 33:20). God doesn't contradict reason, but transcends it infinitely (Isaiah 55:8-9; Romans. 11:33). Because He is so difficult to catch in our thinking so many people create their own god and make him somebody comparable to them. For many Jesus Christ could be such a figure and having the stories of that man doing special things in his life they make him to be their god. We shall go and look in those people their statements and shall search for the truth, looking if Jesus is really God or a man of flesh and blood, just divine, and a son of man being at the same time son of God as is written in the Holy Scriptures.
Lots of people think that we cannot discover God in His hidden essence. Though god is everywhere and when we look carefully around us we can see the Works of His Hands. We can be surprised to find out that we can find God. He has given us His Word, to guide us and to help us throughout our quest. Jesus tried to explain everything what the previous prophets already had told. In a certain way, Jesus came away our reasons to have an excuse that God's Word was not clear enough for us and that we could not 'see' God. Jesus showed us the Way to 'see' and 'feel' God and that is why we do want you to 'see' the real Jesus who will bring us to his heavenly Father the Only One True God.
