For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
What differs christianity from other religions? There are so many religions in the world today. Each of them speaks about a certain god or gods to be worshipped and obeyed. Every religion has its own set of standards and spiritual concepts shaped by their beliefs. In fact, religions make people aware of their destiny and gave some guidelines for a righteous living. Man creates a fear for the supernatural beings who are believed to be the judges of the human actions. So today, there are many outwardly good people in all religions.
Christianity is more than a religion. It is more individual concerned. Jesus Christ said, "For the Son of man came to seek and to save what was lost." ( Luke 19:10).Jesus explains that He came to seek and to save the lost. Therefore, christianity is the process of God seeking man through our Lord Jesus Christ. On the other hand,religion is the process of man seeking God.
Prophet Isaiah said, "we all like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way, and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all." ( Isaiah 53:6) Jesus claimed, "I am the good Shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. Christianity is based on restoring our relationship with God. We are lost, unless God finds us, we cannot be restored. It is impossible that man can find God, because we cannot see him, but it is possible that God can find us because the One that testifies God came from Heaven. The God-Man Jesus, who lived a perfect life on earth, laid his life, Suffered and crucified on the cross of Calvary, to pay for our sins and to save us from eternal condemnation. Jesus said, "I am the Way, theTruth,and the Life, no man comes to my Father except by me."( John 14:6) Jesus never say, "I am one of the way," but He said,"I am the way." Apostle Peter Testified, "neither is there salvation in any other:forthere is none other name under heaven given amongmen, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)
