Who? What? When? Where? Why?
These are known as the 5 Ws. It is the "formula" that journalists use for getting all the answers on something.
But what about as a Christian? Do we know the answers to the 5Ws? The Bible answers all our of questions.
Who? Who are we in Christ? Do we know we are children of God?
John 1:12-13 -- Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
What? What does it mean to be a Christian? How should we be living as Christians?
Galatians 2:20 -- I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
When? When should we decide to become a Christian? Is there any urgency?
Matthew 24:36,42-44 -- “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."
Where? Where are we going to end up? How do we know we will have eternal life?
1 John 5:10-13 -- Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony.... And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
Why? This one reminds me of the Mickey Mouse club. "Why? Because we like you!" Actually, it's because he loves us. He loves us so much that he lay down his life for us to spend eternity with him.
John 3:16 -- For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
