Well, since you’re here, and this is my most personal WP site, I would be somewhat remiss to not tell you something about this.
Something EVERYONE should know!
1. You and I have sinned.
Everybody has sinned, small or big, once or many times. That’s the point. Nobody matches up to God’s standards, EVER. That includes me and you.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
2. There is a penalty for sin.
God, being perfect and sinless, does not want anything to do with sin. As sinners, we deserve to be separated from the perfect God, forever, in Hell. Nothing we personally do (good or bad) will let us into Heaven, because we’ll never meet His standards, by ourselves. By default, we’re all headed for Hell. No matter how nice or good we are. Because nobody will ever meet God’s standards for Heaven.
“For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23)
3. Jesus Christ, God’s perfect and sinless Son, has already paid our sin debt.
Since Christ is perfect and sinless, HE fits God’s standards. Christ knows full well that nothing we do will get us to pay our way to Heaven. So, Christ agreed to pay our way to Heaven instead, without charging us anything, with the only payment God will accept. Christ came down to earth and lived among men, then died on the Cross, and rose again, to do just that.
“But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
4. You must by faith receive Jesus Christ as your Savior and accept His free gift of eternal life.
It’s Christ gift to you, free for you, at much cost to Him. The gift is the opportunity to be with God in Heaven, forever, beyond this life! All you need to do is accept that gift!
You have to believe it yourself; nobody can do this for you. You have to believe that because you are a sinner, you can’t do anything to get to Heaven by yourself. You have to believe that Christ took in your sins and paid for them when He died on the Cross for you. That because of what He did for you, He offers you the only way to Heaven. You have to believe with all your heart that Christ did it for you, and accept what He did for you.
“…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23b)
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
My friend, why not receive Jesus now and pray this simple prayer…
Lord Jesus, I know I’m a sinner, I know if I died right now, I could not go to Heaven.
Please come into my heart, forgive me of my sin, and be my personal Savior.
Thank You for saving me and giving me eternal life.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
