Viewpoint - What's in it for me?

By Veronica Baldwin member of the Viewpoint team and of the Gorleston Baptist Church.


What’s in it for me if I become a Christian? This is what’s in it forCopy of VIEWPOINTS 001 you. You become a child of the Living God. You become loved and cared for by the Creator of the universe. Underneath you are the Everlasting arms to hold you. He will protect you and guide you. You are precious in His sight, and honoured. God is for you. He is a strong tower, run into Him, and you are safe. He will bless you because He loves you. He will help you because He is the God of your salvation, and for the glory of His name. 
If you are struggling and are heavy laden, go to Him and He will give you rest.   If you are in Christ, you are a new creation, old things are passed away, all things become new. Being justified by faith, you have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. You are now a royal prince or princess. This is your spiritual standing in this life. 
In Heaven you will be dressed in robes and a crown. You will live in a city of gold, whose walls are covered with jewels and whose gates are pearls.   You will have come to Mount Zion and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels. You will be in the prescence of Jesus, the Saviour of the world
You will be entitled to all this because God so loved the world, and that includes you, that He sent His only Son to die for the world, and that includes you, and so gave you the right to become His child through faith in Jesus Christ. In Heaven there will be no more tears, for God Himself will wipe them away from your face. There will be no more sorrow or death.   That’s what’s in it for you. This is your spiritual standing in the sight of God.
