WANNA MAKE HEAVEN YOUR HOME?
1. God loves you and has a plan for you!
The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”—a complete life full of purpose John 10:10. --But here is the problem:
2. We Are A People That Sin – Sinners
“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” Romans 3:23
3. There Is A Penalty For Sin
- The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God
“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” Romans 6:23
4. God’s Love For Us
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
5. There Is A Pardon For Sin – Jesus
God sent His Son Jesus to die for your sins.
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8
But it did not end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives!
“Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” John 14:6
6. Jesus Wants To Save You – Today
If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
“For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.” Romans 10:10
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord (Jesus) shall be saved.”
We cannot earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you must do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that is called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you.
Would you be willing to sincerely pray a prayer like this, in your own words, from your heart right now? (Realize it is not a certain prayer that saves, but your faith in Jesus Christ).
Pray like this: “Dear God, I confess that I am a sinner, and I am sorry. I need a Savior. I know I cannot save myself. I believe by faith that Jesus, your Son, died on the cross to be my Savior. I believe He arose from the grave to live as my Lord. I turn from my sin. I ask You, Lord Jesus, to forgive my sin and come into my heart. I trust you as my Savior and receive you as my Lord. Thank you, Jesus, for saving me.”
When anyone calls on the Lord in this manner, that one is saved according to God’s Word. If you prayed a prayer of repentance and faith, you are saved. You have God’s word on it.
If you have prayed this prayer to receive Christ as your Lord and Savior, why not record your decision to follow Jesus as follows. Oftentimes, a good place to write this would be inside the cover of your bible:
Believing by faith that God loves me and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for my sin and arise from the grave to live in me, I, _______, do this day, ________, repent of my sin and accept Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. According to the promise of God in Romans 10:13, I have called upon His name and have His word for the assurance of my salvation.
Everlasting life begins when we receive Christ as our Savior. Please inform us of your decision and let us help you in your new life as a Christian.
