Do you know Christ as your personal Saviour?
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
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." -Romans 3:23
God made man in His own image. He gave man the ability to choose right from wrong. We choose to sin. Our sins have separated us from God, Our sins keep us from God.
God's Word Also Says That Sin Must Be Paid For
"For the wages of sin is death;..." - Romans 6:23 a
Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death and hell, separation from God forever. If we continue in our sin, 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. He paid our sin debt 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
We Must Personally Repent, And by Faith Receive Christ By Faith
The Bible says, "And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:" - Acts 17:30
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" - John 1:12
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast" - Ephesians 2:8-9
"And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
And they said, Believe of the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house." - Acts 16:30-31
"... but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." - Romans 6:23 b
Everlasting life begins when we receive Christ as our Saviour!
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." - John 5:24
Will You Call on the Lord Jesus And Receive Him as your personal Lord and Saviour Today?
The Bible says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Romans 10:13
Here is a simple prayer that you may use as a guideline. Realize that the prayer does not save you, but it is only a means by which you call out to God expressing your faith and repentance.
Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. If I died today, I would not go to heaven. I now repent of my sin, please forgive my sin, come into my life and be my Lord and Saviour. Help me live for you from this day forward. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
