The Bible says, “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). Jesus Christ is the Son of God!
Jesus said, ...“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10) a complete life full of purpose.
But here’s the problem:
In the beginning Adam and Eve chose to disobey God by eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. From that moment fellowship was broken. There had to be a blood sacrifice for their disobedience. God drove Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. Friend, sin will never go unpunished (read Genesis 3).
Romans 3:10 says, As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: --- the root word for righteous is right. This means that no one is right!
We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans3:23).
Romans 6:23 declares, For the wages of sin is death; --- Look at what the Bible says about sin:
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
The first death is when our physical bodies die and we are separated from our loved ones. The second death, as mentioned in this verse, is when we are separated from God for eternity.
There is good news, so look back at Romans 6:23...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ
Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever. Jesus was our blood sacrifice!
But it did not end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives!
Notice these words: For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved!
Salvation is as easy as A, B, C; Accept, Believe and Confess your sins to an almighty God!
We cannot earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, believe that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then, turn from your sins (that is called repentance).
Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, andyour honesty.
This is a prayer you can pray to accept Christ as your Saviour:
“Dear Lord Jesus,
I know I am a sinner, and I know if I died right now I would go to Hell. I ask for your forgiveness.I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I will trust and follow you as my Lord andSaviour. Guide my life, and help me to do your will. I ask you, Jesus, to come into my heart thisday to be Lord and Master in my life
In Jesus name,
