INTRODUCTION: The following "A New Life" studies are used by permission by the author, Thomas Wade Akins.
    In the last lesson, you learned that God loves you, that He is holy and that man is a sinner. You also learned that there are two consequences for sin. The Bible says in Romans 6:23, "The wages of sin is death." Death is separation from God in two ways. First, it is separation from God now, in this world. 

Second, it is eternal separation in hell, after we die. In this lesson, you will learn the only solution to man's sin problem.

  1. THE PRICE OF SIN. The price of every sin that you have committed or will commit is, according to Romans 6:23, death. This means that the only way to eliminate the barrier of sin in your life is for someone else to die for your sin. The Bible says in Romans 5:8, "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were yet sinners Christ died for us."
  2. JESUS CHRIST PAID THE PRICE FOR YOUR SINS. Jesus Christ paid the price for your sins with His blood when He died on the cross. I John 1 :7 says that, "the blood of Jesus, His son, purifies us from all sin." Many people are trying to reach God through:
  1. Good works
  2. Religion
  3. Baptism
  4. The Eucharist (Communion)
  5. Prayers to religious figures
  6. Mass
  7. Angels
  8. Saints
  9. Re-incarnation
  10. Spirits invocations 

However, these efforts do not have any power to eliminate sin. The Bible clearly explains that there is only one Lord, Savior and Mediator between man and God. His name is Jesus. I Timothy 2:5-6 says, "For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus who gave Himself as a ransom for all men."

After Jesus Christ died for our sins, He resurrected from death. Do you believe that Jesus Christ is the only Lord, Savior, and Mediator between you and God?

In the next lesson you will learn how you may receive Christ in your spirit (heart) and have eternal life.
