The Door

There is a door waiting that everyone must enter one day, that door is death. It is the eternal destiny for everyone since the fall of Adam. In Romans 5:12 it says that by one man sin entered the world, and death by sin, and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.

Beyond that door lies everyone's eternal destiny, some to the resurrection of eternal life and some to the resurrection of eternal condemnation.
Since all have sinned all are born into this world on the road to condemnation, alienated form God because of Adam's transgression. But God provided a way to himself and that way was in himself went he came into the world 2000 years ago in the person of Jesus Christ. God who is eternal life and by whom all things consist came into this world of sin and paid the full price for sin when he died on a cross for all. The word of God in 2 Corinthians 5:21 says that God made him "the Lord Jesus" to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
The word of God goes on to say in Hebrews 11:6 that without faith it is impossible to please God and in the book of Romans chapter 10 verse 17 that faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
So the only way to please God in this age of Grace is to take him at his word. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, he paid for all our sin on the cross and paid the full penalty for our sin. He was delivered for our offences, and raised from the dead for our justification. It's faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross and his resurrection from the dead that guarantees acceptance with God as he is our redeemer and our life giver. Take God at his word: Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
