Who came 2000 years ago and brought the message of salvation? A message so important that He even gave His life on the cross for it. Yes, as you've guessed, it is Jesus Christ. But why do we need salvation?

1 Pet. 1:8 "Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, 9. obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls."

We've never physically seen Jesus Christ, but we believe in Him b/c it is He who will save our souls. When something nedds salvation, it's because something is wrong with it. Then what's wrong with our soul that it needs salvation? Let's ask Jesus! Surely He knows since He came to save them:

Luke 19:10 "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."

Jesus came to seek (look for) and save what was lost. But who are the lost? Weren't we in heaven before? But we are here now. And when Jesus came, He didn't preach to animals or fish, but to people. Then who are the lost? It's us! We're lost! Lost from where? From heaven. So the one who was from heaven,Jesus, came down to guide us back there. But Jesus is not just anybody from heaven. He left the highest position and served as the lowest. How precious must this lost be? Then why are we lost?

Matt. 9:13 "Then he added, “Now go and learn the meaning of this Scripture: ‘I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.' For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.”

Here, Jesus says that He came to call sinners. Wait, in the last verse, it was the lost He came for. Now it's the sinners? If we are those lost from Heaven, what are we also? (Sinners.) Then the reason we are lost is because we sinned against God.

Then where do you think we comitted the sin? You're probably thinking and saying to yourself, "We were born into sin." Yeah, how? Christ Ahnsahnghong came from heaven the first time to show us who we really are. Stay tuned...
