Do you know Christ as your personal Savior? Have you ever received the Lord Jesus Christ into your life?
Realize That God Loves You
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
The Bible Says That All Men Are Sinners
Our sins have separated us from God. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23 God initially made man in His own image. The Lord gave man the ability to choose right from wrong. Adam and Eve chose sin in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3). Because of this, a sin nature has been passed on to us. ("Wherefore, as by one man [Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" Romans 5:12). Our very nature, as sinners, keeps us from God. Our very nature as sinners enables us to keep on sinning (sin comes very natural to us). We're sinners and we can't help it!
God's Word Also Says That Sin Must Be Paid For
"For the wages of sin is death...." Romans 6:23 Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death and hell, eternal separation from God. If we continue in our sin nautre, we shall die without Christ and be without God forever.
The Good News Is That Christ Paid For Our Sins
All of our sins were laid on Christ on the cross of Calvary. Jesus paid our sin debt for us - He died as us and for us! The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, and He arose from the dead. He is alive forevermore. "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8; "For the wages of sin is death; but the fift of God is eternal life through JEsus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
We Must Personally Pray And Receive Christ By Faith
The Bible says, "9) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thin heart that God hath raise dhim from the dead, thou shal be saved. 10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation...13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:9-10, 13
Pray And Receive Christ As Your Savior
Lord, I know that I am a sinner. If I died today, I would not go to heaven. I know that the Lord Jesus died on the cross for me, was buried, and rose again. Forgive my sin, come into my life and be my Saviour. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
The Bible says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
Everlasting life begins when we receive Christ as our Savior.
