The Word of God, the Bible, reveals God's perfect plan for our lives.
If God were to ask you, "Why should I let you into heaven," what would you say?
Do you know that the Bible tells us that we can know for sure that we can have eternal life in heaven with God? 1st John 5:13 says, "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."
God truly does have a wonderful plan for your life! Jesus Christ, God's Son, tells us in John 10:10, "I have come that you may have abundant life."
Unfortunately, there is a problem – SIN. Man is a sinner. Romans 3:23 tells us, "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:10 says, "There is none righteous, not even one." SIN has separated man from God. Romans 5:12 states, "Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man (Adam), and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned."
Man cannot save himself. Ephesians 2:8-9 tells us, "For by grace are you saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast."
Fortunately, there is a SOLUTION – A payment was made to provide the way to God. It was through the Lord Jesus Christ. In John 14:6 Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
In 1st Corinthians 15:3-4, the Bible also tells us that Jesus Christ died for our sins, that He was buried and three days later He arose from the grave.
In John 3:16 the Bible tells us, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER believes in him shall not perish, but shall have everlasting life."
And Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ."
The GREAT NEWS is this:
God, who is just, yet rich in mercy, offers forgiveness of sin that is available to all who turn from their sin (repent) and in doing so turn to Christ.
Romans 10:9 says that, "If you will confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." Romans 10:13 says, "For WHOSOEVER will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved."
Would you like to receive God's forgiveness, eternal life, and begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord today? If your answer is yes, just pray this simple prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I am a sinner. I ask you now to forgive me of all my sin. I believe that you died on the cross for my sins, were buried, and arose from the dead. I now invite you into my heart and make you the Lord and master of my life. Thank you, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus' name, amen.
