Realize that God loves you
“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 separate us from God.
God’s Word also says that sin must be paid for
“For the wages of sin is death…” Romans 6:23
Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death and hell, separation from God forever. If we continue in our sin, we will die without Christ and be without God forever.
The Good News is that Christ paid for our sins
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
All 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!
How can we be saved?
We must personally pray and receive Christ by faith as our Savior
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
If you would like to trust in Christ as your personal Savior, you can pray something like this…
Lord, I know that I am a sinner. If I died today I would not go to heaven. Forgive me of my sin. I trust in you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank You for what You have done for me. Help me live for You from this day forward.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
