God loves you. He wants to have a relationship with you through His Son, Jesus, and He wants you to spend eternity in heaven with Him.
"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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." John 3:16-17
Sin separates us from God.
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." 1 John 1:8
The penalty for sin is death and hell.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
"And these shall go away into everlasting punishment; but the righteous into life eternal." Matthew 25:46
God made a way for our salvation through Jesus Christ. Jesus paid our sin debt through death and was resurrected on the third day.
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
"As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. "Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, 'He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.' " Mark 16:5-7
How can you accept Jesus as your Savior & Lord?
"If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with the heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." Romans 10:9-10
A - Admit to God that you are a sinner and need His salvation.
B - Believe that Jesus is God's only Son and receive His gift of forgiveness from sin.
C - Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior & Lord.
If you sincerely desire to accept Jesus as your Savior, talk to God from your heart. Here's a suggested prayer to help you.
"Lord Jesus, I admit that I am a sinner and need your salvation. I believe that you sent your only Son, Jesus, to die for me so that I may spend eternity with you in heaven. Jesus, come into my heart and take control of my life, forgive my sins, and save me. I am placing my trust in You alone for my salvation, and I accept your gift of eternal life. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
If you have accepted Jesus, rejoice and share it with others.
