God loves you and wants you to have eternal life.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal live.”
But you have a SIN PROBLEM
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”
What’s so bad about SIN? The only payment for sin is DEATH – eternal separation from God
“For the wages of sin is death…”
“But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake and burns with fire and brimstone, which is the Second Death.”
It may surprise you that “whoever keeps the whole law of God yet stumbles in one point has become guilty of all.”
If you have ever sinned, or told just one lie, then the penalty for your sin is death, eternal separation from God I hell forever.
But the Good News is that JESUS CHRIST died on the cross to pay for all your sins.
“The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“But God demonstrated His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us,”
You can receive God’s free gift of eternal life by faith in Jesus Christ because of God’s grace
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and that not of yourselves, it is the GIFT OF GOD – not by works . . . for we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works . . . “
Eternal life is a free gift for you but costly for Jesus because He paid for it with His blood. You cannot earn it by doing good works. You can only receive it by faith. Repentance and good works are the evidences of your faith.
Pray the following prayer to express your faith in Jesus Christ:
Lord Jesus, thank you for loving me. I confess that I am a sinner. Thank you for dying on the cross to pay for all my sins. Please come into my heart, forgive my sins and be my Lord and Savior. I accept your free gift of eternal life. By your power, I will live my life to please you. I love You. Amen.
If you just trusted in Jesus Christ, you can know that you have eternal life!
“These I have written to you who believe in the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. . .
--1 John 5:13
