| God loves you and has a plan for your life! "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
1. The Bible Says We Are All Sinners:
“ For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:23
Yes, all men, including you, have come short of Heaven because of sin.
2. Realize Sin Must Be Paid For:
“For the wages of sin is death...” Romans 6:23
All men die physically, but all men do not die spiritually. You can be born again, through Jesus Christ, and be saved from the penalty of sin, which is eternal Hell. It is a place of “fire and brimstone, which is the second death,” Revelation 21:8
3. Realize Christ Paid For Our Sin:
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
Jesus Christ paid the entire price on the cross for your sin. God set the penalty on sin, which was a sinless, perfect sacrifice. God then gave His Own Son to pay that price.
4. Realize and Acknowledge:
“...the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23b
God has already paid for your gift of eternal life with the life of His Son. The gift is yours by putting your trust and total reliance upon the risen and living Lord Jesus Christ who arose from the dead on the third day and is alive forever more.
5. Trust Christ Alone to Save You:
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13.
Whosoever means you. If you, by simple faith, will trust in Christ’s payment for your sin, you have God’s promise of eternal life and your home in Heaven. Nothing else will do ...not church membership, not baptism, not confirmation, and not communion. None of these things can save us from sin. Only Jesus Christ can.
6. Confess and Ask:
Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him by faith.
Why not pray this prayer right now: Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. If I died today, I would go to hell. I ask you to forgive me for my sins, come into my heart and save me. I'm trusting You, and You alone to take me to Heaven. Thank you for saving me. Amen.
