GOD LOVES YOU and He desires that you have eternal life and a meaningful life – John 3:16; John 10:10b. But most people are not experiencing a meaningful life and they are not sure that they have eternal life because…
MAN HAS A SIN PROBLEM, which separates him from God. Everyone has sinned – Romans 3:23. The penalty for sin is death – Romans 6:23. The Bible talks about two kinds of death. The first death is physical. The second death is spiritual or eternal separation from God – Revelation 21:8
MAN CAN’T PAY FOR HIS SINS nor earn eternal life through doing good works or keeping the Ten Commandments (The Law). Obeying the law and doing good does not remove the penalty of our sins – Romans 3:23. So what is God’s solution?
JESUS CHRIST IS GOD’S WAY TO HEAVEN. He is the only way – John 14:6. Jesus completely paid the penalty of your sin by dying on the cross for you – Romans 5:6,8.
God has provided the way. What should be our response?
WE MUST PLACE OUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST and trust Him alone to save us – Ephesians 2:8-9. We must show our faith by being willing to repent from our sins and by accepting Jesus Christ and His gift of eternal life – 1 John 5:11-12 and Romans 10:9-10
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I need You, I confess that I am a sinner. I believe that you died on the cross to pay for all my sins. With Your help I will turn away from my sins. Please come into my life and be my Savior and my Master. I accept Your gift of eternal life. Make me the kind of new person You want me to be. Thank you for giving me eternal life. Amen.
