Everyone needs eternal life. The life which we are born into has been tainted by sin and stained by impurity. Because of this, no one, for all of their talk of experiencing life, has ever really had it. In the most profound sense possible to human beings, they have never been truly born. Because of this sin and impurity we have become separated from God.
"For the wages of sin is death..." (Romans 6:23)
But what is sin? Sin
is basically being self centered. It is pushing God out of the center of
your life and allowing your ego to take over the part that God had designed
for Himself. Some people define sin as adultery, lying, stealing, cheating,
and so on. Those are sins. Sin is man shaking his fist in
God's face and saying, 'I want to run my life on my own terms.'
"As it it written. There is none righteous, no, not one." (Romans 3:10)
Did you know God loves you? You may never have thought about it or been told so, but he does. God loves you very much and wants you to be with Him for all eternity. That is why he sent his Son to earth to atone for our sins. Jesus Christ was that Son, and 2,000 years ago he was crucified at a place called Calvary.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever beleiveth in Him shall have everlasting life..." (John 3:16)
Jesus paid the ultimate price for us, He did it for us because he loves us. He did it because it was the will of our Father in heaven for Him to die for our sins. And Jesus did just that. That is why we can have the promise of eternal life with our Father in heaven, a place far more wonderful than any person can imagine. His sacrifice was a gift to us.
the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." --
tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born
again." (John 3:3)
"For all have sinned
and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
"But as many
as received Him, to them He gave the power to become the sons of God, even
to them that believe on His name." (Romans 6:23)
"God be merciful to me a sinner." (Luke 18:13)
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)
"If thou shalt confess
with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God
hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9)
Believe in Christ. Have faith in Him. He is ready to accept you as you are, right now this very minute!
"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him. (Revelation 3:20a.)
"Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." 2 Corinthians 6:2)
Won't you take a moment to change your life forever and repeat this simple prayer of faith:
"Lord Jesus, I believe in you. I know I am a sinner, separated from God
because of sin. Please forgive my sins. I accept your sacrifice and death
in my place as payment for my sins. I repent (turn away) myself
from a sinful life and sinful ways. I
you have taken this step and received Jesus into your heart and life I
would like to joyfully welcome you into our family as a brother or sister
in Christ. I would also like to suggest that you need to find a bible believing
church to attend. Many people shy away from church because they fear all
kinds of things. But I urge you to find a church to attend. Watching a
service on TV is not quite what I had in mind. A local, bible believing
church is a place where you can go to learn about God and His word, to
praise the Lord, and also to rejoice in the fellowship of one another.
May God bless you and
