Christians are taught in Sin has separated the world from eternity with God. In Sunday school, Christians are taught the way to heaven is through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Messiah. The textbook defines the Messiah as, “The transliteration of the Hebrew term for “anointed one.” In the Greek New Testament, this Hebrew term is translated as Christos from which English speakers derive Christ. Hence, when the New Testament refers to Jesus as Christ they are indicating his title and leadership role: the Messiah in the Old Testament.” In order for Him to be the Messiah though, He had to match up to a few standards. He had to be fully man and fully God (Waddell, Chapter 5). In order to take on our punishment, he had to become like humankind. Hebrews 2:17-18 says, “Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people. Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.” While on this earth, Jesus was perfect unlike us. He spent his entire life preaching and teaching Jews and Gentiles alike about the love of God and the opportunity of eternity with Him (Waddell, Chapter 5). Then, at the end of His life, He died for those that ridiculed him. A Christian’s worldview is focused on the Gospel (Waddell, Chapter 5). Jesus is the only reason for the Gospel. Without Jesus, there would be not Messiah. Without a Messiah, there is not Gospel. Without the Gospel, there is no hope for eternal life. Jesus is what the Christian Worldview is centered around.

Jesus is the light for my path, and my goal is to follow His guidance, so I stay on the path God has planned for me. By looking at God, humanity, Jesus, His restoration, the Christian faith, and what God has done in my life, God works to show others what he has done for them and the hope he provides for their future. I decided to accept the gift, and it has given me a purpose for my life. The unknown and uncertainty of the future can scare people, but there is fulfillment in Christ. He provides a hope to know that no matter what we go through there is a future with Him if we accept it. Jeremiah 29:11 says, ‘“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”’
