Solving Our Ultimate Problem

What is your ultimate problem? You may list any of many things, but the Bible says that mankind’s ultimate problem is lostness. So could we together ask and answer some questions? These are some interesting questions that you can answer for yourself. 



  1. What are your spiritual beliefs?
  2. To you, who is Jesus?
  3. Do you believe in heaven and hell?
  4. If you died tonight, where would you go? If you think ‘heaven,’ why do you believe you would go there?
  5. The ultimate question: If what you believe is not true, would you want to know?

When you’ve answered those questions, would you like to compare your answers with some of the things that God has stated in His word, the Scriptures? If so, take a look at these seven verses, and compare what they say with the answers you gave yourself. 

  • For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. –Romans 3:23.
  • For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. –Romans 6:23.
  • In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.” –John 3:3
  • Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” --John 14:6
  • That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” --Romans 10:9-11
  • And he died for all, that those who lived should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. –2 Corinthians 5:15
  • Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. –Revelation 3:20

Take a look at five more questions, and answer them for yourself. 

  1. Are you a sinner?
  2. Do you want forgiveness for your sins?
  3. Do you believe Jesus Christ die on the cross for you and rose again?
  4. Are you willing to surrender your life to Jesus Christ?
  5. Are you ready to invite Jesus Christ into your life and into your heart?

If your answer was “yes”, you accept that you are a sinner. This is discouraging to know, but very healthy to accept the truth. You not only accept that you are a sinner, but, yes, you also want forgiveness for your sins, you believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for you and rose again, you are willing to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, and you are now ready to invite Jesus Christ into your life and into your heart. What a relief to simply acknowledge the truth about ourselves, and what we need from Jesus!

            Now what? What can you do next, if you answered “yes” to those questions?

Salvation is found in Jesus Christ

The single most important decision a person could ever make in their lifetime is to receive Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. The Bible says, "all have sinned and fall short of God's glory and we don't deserve eternal life because the wages of sin is death". Yet through God's love, only "Christ gives us eternal life by grace through faith"... it is a gift of God. God's word says, That if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is LORD and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead YOU WILL BE SAVED. The Bible says to REPENT of your sins. BELIEVE in Jesus receiving His forgiveness. Then, identify with Christ and start living a new life in obedience to God by being BAPTIZED.

Do you know someone who has been praying for you? You may call that person. Do you know where your friend goes to church? If so, you can go with them. 

If you have chosen to pray this prayer to Jesus, you may want to know the answers the Bible gives to some other questions. 

  1. How many sins has Jesus Christ paid for? 1 John 2:2 says, “He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for all the sins of the whole world.”
  2. How many of our sins does Christ remember? Hebrews 10:17 says, “Then he adds: ‘Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.’”
  3. Where does Christ live? Galatians 2:20 says, “. . . I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
  4. What can you pray to Him about? See Matthew 7:7-11, which says “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace.

  • Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God.
  • Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Saviour.

B. Justification is God's gracious and full acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer unto a relationship of peace and favor with God.

C. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual maturity through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in grace should continue throughout the regenerate person's life.

D. Glorification is the culmination of salvation and is the final blessed and abiding state of the redeemed.
