Do you know how much God loves you? It is more than any human mind could ever comprehend. Watch this... (Turn sound on and listen - for the first few seconds, the screen is black.)
The Bible says: "I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life." (1 John 5:13); and that there is only one way to heaven. Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me." (John 14:6)
There are four things that God wants everyone to know:
First, you must accept that you are a sinner.
"There is no one righteous, not even one;... all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:10, 23) We must see ourselves in the light of God's word. We are all sinners.
Second, you must accept that, as a sinner, you owe a penalty.
"For the wages of sin is death ..." (Romans 6:23) The penalty for sin is separation from God for eternity in Hell.
Third, you must accept that Jesus Christ has already paid our sin penalty.
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) Jesus Christ shed His blood and died on the cross to pay our sin penalty.
Fourth, you must accept the risen Savior, Jesus Christ, as your only hope to heaven.
No amount of good works, church membership, baptism, etc., can save you. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9) Jesus paid your penalty on the cross, rose from the dead, and then ascended up to heaven. He promises that if you will call on Him, believing He will save your soul, He will give you eternal life right now and write your name in the book of life. It is said "That 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 your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, 'Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.' ... for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'" (Romans 10:9-11, 13)
If you have never put your complete faith in Jesus Christ for your eternal salvation, why not believe what God's word says and call on Jesus Christ to save you right now?
If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, pray this simple prayer and mean it in your heart:
As a Christian, you should:
- read your Bible every day so that you will come to know Christ better;
- draw closer to God by talking to Him every day in prayer;
- worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority; and
- tell others about Christ.
