Are you looking for a place of acceptance, good news, or a real solution to your life? This video outlines how God works with an illustration using cups. Please take the time to watch and let us know what you think.

The Blue being God, our Father
God loves us and desires for us to be with Him forever. God has revealed himself to us as our Father.
And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:18 (NLT)
But now God has made you his friends again. He did this through Christ’s death in the body so that he might bring you into God’s presence as people who are holy, with no wrong, and with nothing of which God can judge you guilty. Colossians 1:22 (NCV)
The Red cup being Jesus Christ
Jesus is God and Jesus’ death on the cross provides forgiveness for our sins.
I and the Father are one.” John 10:30 (NIV)
Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? John 14:9 (NIV)
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. Ephesians 1:7-8 (NIV)
The Brown cup are All the people of the world
We have all sinned against God and our sin separates us from God. We often try to be accepted by God by doing good things.
At one time you were separated from God. You were his enemies in your minds, and the evil things you did were against God. Colossians 1:21 (NCV)
He saved us— not by works of righteousness that we had done, but according to His mercy, through the washing of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit. Titus 3:5 (HCSB)
Yet I never shrank from telling you the truth, either publicly or in your homes. I have had one message for Jews and Gentiles alike–the necessity of turning from sin to God through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 20:20-21 (TLB)
The Green is The Holy Spirit
We need help to live the Christian life and God sends us the Holy Spirit to be our Helper. God comes to live in us through the Person of the Holy Spirit.
Does the Spirit of the one who brought Jesus back to life live in you? Then the one who brought Christ back to life will also make your mortal bodies alive by his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:11 (GW)
At that time it will be clear to you that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I in you. John 14:20 (BBE)
I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper who will be with you forever. John 14:16 (GW)
Then Christ will live in you through faith. I also pray that love may be the ground into which you sink your roots and on which you have your foundation. Ephesians 3:17 (GW)
For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory. Colossians 1:27 (NLT)
What do you think? Are you sinful? Have you asked God for forgiveness? Do you believe Jesus and God are the same? Do you have the Holy Spirit within you? Do you call on the Holy Spirit?
