The True Problem of Mankind

John 8:44

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

We experience different problems every day, it could be a problem from our family, problem in our workplace, problems with our relationship with other people, friends or with those special to us. There are problems that seems to not to go away, and there are problems that can be solved easily because we learned already how to deal with problems of those kinds. If we put all together, whether easily solved or not, problems keeps on coming and it brings about great discouragements. How can we be able to solve these problems?

Mankind was separated from God because of Satan’s deception. We became sinners and live a life without believing in God. We suffered spiritually and experienced many physical illnesses because we are controlled by Satan.

God is Spirit (Matthew 4:24) and God created us in His own image (Genesis 1:27). Therefore, we are ought to live in God’s presence. But when the first man choose to disobey, the spirit of God which is the image of God died (Ephesians 2:1). This cause mankind to experience more and more sufferings which we cannot solve.

In the absence of God’s spirit in people’s lives they became captured and enslaved by Satan. Those who are outside God’s presence is always at risk of being tempted and will surely fall to Satan’s deception. This is the true problem of man. Also, having a lot of money, intelligence, worldly pleasures and even religions cannot solve this problem. God is aware that we cannot solve this spiritual problem on our own.

Because of His great love for us, God sent Jesus being the Christ to solve this root of all problems. Jesus made His way here on earth through His incarnation and testified about the Kingdom of God. He presented himself as the great sacrifice that no one is able to fulfil since we are all sinners. He took our sins and finished it all by dying on the cross. Christ being the true King crushed the head of Satan by giving us assurance of eternal life when He arose from the dead after three days.

God sent His Son not to condemn the world but to save the world through Him (John 3:17). And that those people who will believe in Him will have life eternal through God’s grace in Jesus’s name.

The true problem of mankind can be solved only through Christ. There is nothing and no one can stop the Gospel.

Help save those people experiencing great sufferings in their lives by sharing the Gospel and making them disciples of Christ. It is our work given by Christ right before He ascended unto heaven. Make ourselves powerful by being filled with the Holy Spirit which Christ had given us to continue this work of sharing the Gospel.

God bless us and Let us proclaim Jesus as the Christ.
