STORY WITH THE OBJECT
A friend of mine was diagnosed with cancerous tumors in his head, using analytical techniques like this x-ray. After many months of treatment and chemotherapy, the cancer was completely eradicated and he was healthy again.
TRANSITION TO THE SPIRITUAL
An x-ray shows us what we are like on the inside physically. In the same way, there is a machine that can show us what we are like on the inside spiritually.
THE PROBLEM (LAW)
This machine is God’s Law, the Ten Commandments. If we were to be x-rayed by this machine, we would see some terrible results. We are full of sinful tumors. Our lies are growing tumors; our constant stealing, more tumors; every impure thought that has passed through our mind is a cancerous tumor.
THE CONSEQUENCES (ETERNITY)
When our life in this earth ends, the x-ray of our lives will be exposed before God and everyone else, and each one of our sinful tumors will come to light. The bad news is that with tumors of sin in our soul, we will not be able to enter into God’s perfect heaven, and our destination will be a place without light or peace called hell.
THE SOLUTION (CROSS)
But there is hope! In the same way that my friend received treatment to heal his body, there is a treatment that can heal your soul. When Jesus Christ came to earth, he never sinned, he never had a tumor in his life, but when he died and rose again, he took all your sinful tumors upon himself so he could remove them from your life and prevent your eternal death.
THE CALL (REPENTANCE AND FAITH)
Today Jesus offers you healing and salvation for your soul. He wants to remove every sinful tumor from your heart, but you must repent of all your sin. Put your life in Jesus´hands and trust completely in him and he will give you eternal life.
