The Bible says, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life..."
But there's only one problem...
All of us have done, said, or thought things that are wrong.
This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God. The Bible says, "For there is not a just man on earth who does good and does not sin." Our God is perfect and holy, and therefore, our sins separate us from Him.
The good news is that...
God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on a cross to pay the penalty for our sins. "God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us."
The Bible says, "If you will confess [acknowledge] your sins, God who is faithful and just, will forgive your sins and cleanse you of all unrighteousness [the result of sin]."
In fact, the Bible says when a person believes in his or her heart, and confesses Jesus with their mouth, they will be given right-standing with God.
In His love, God gives every believer the ability to stand before Him without guilt or inferiority as if he or she had never sinned.
If you want to accept Jesus as your Savior and turn from your sins,receiving His help and guidance in your life, all you have to do is pray a prayer like this one:
"Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you to make my heart your home. I accept you Jesus as my Lord."
If you prayed that prayer sincerely from your heart, you are saved!
In His last physical words on the earth, Jesus said, "Go into all the world and make disciples." This is done through a local church and personal prayer and study time.
The Bible reminds us, "Do not neglect the assembling of yourselves together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near."
Find a good church home where the Word of God is taught and you can grow in Christ!
