No sin in your life is worth taking a chance on missing out on the Love of God.
Likewise no sin is worth burning in Hell over.
No unsaved person has any clue of the Love and Peace found in Jesus Christ.
My goal and purpose in life is simply offering and helping you understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Every person must face the judgement of God.
You and I have the option of accepting the Gift of God, which is the sin payment paid on the Cross by Jesus Christ. Otherwise the sin payment you owe is paid in the torment of Hell by you. Statements such as this will be with Scriptures to back them up.
I consider myself a ‘good person’… won’t that be enough?
Romans 3:23 NKJV – for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 3:10 NKJV – As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;
Romans 5:12 NKJV – Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned–
Is sin really THAT big of a deal? If it is… what HOPE is there?
Romans 6:23 NKJV – For the wages of sin [is] death, but the gift of God [is] eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Disobedience to an infinite eternal God deserves an infinite eternal consequence. God shows us His character and his laws in his creation, the world around us. He has also written his laws in our hearts… on our conscience. He has also given us his WORD the Bible. No good judge would let the guilty go free, the criminal go unpunished. Neither can a holy righteous God allow sinful man to go unpunished… but God LOVES man whom he has made in his image and He has provided a way of escape by sending his only son to die in our place.
After what I’ve done to grieve God… HOW could He willingly die in my place?
Romans 5:8 NKJV – But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16-NKJV While he died on the cross, he was mocked, spit upon, and cursed. Yet Jesus cried out, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do…” (Luke 23:34-KJV) With such love, Jesus died in your place… knowing every evil act, word, and thought you would commit. What powerful love! He loves you unconditionally even to the point of death when you are at your worst!
HOW can I be saved?
Romans 10:9-10 NKJV – that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
You can never be saved by trying to be a good person, nor can you be saved through any amount of ‘good works’. Ephesians 2:8,9 says “For by grace have you been saved by faith. And that, not of yourselves. It is the gift of God, not of works. Lest any man should boast. (KJV) You and I can be saved only by confessing our sins and placing our faith in God’s son, Jesus Christ who died and paid for our sins on the cross. We must also surrender our life to His lordship… placing him in charge of every area of our life because we now belong to him. Both John the Baptist and Jesus himself began their preaching with the word, ‘Repent’. (“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” –Matthew 4:17 NKJV) To repent means ‘change one’s mind’ or to turn — to go in another direction. How can we be led to repentance? The first step toward repentance is true sorrow for what we’ve done wrong. “For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.” – 2 Corinthians 7:10 NKJV. Worldly sorrow is more like the regret of a criminal who’s just been caught whereas godly sorrow is the deep remorse or conviction that produces a change in direction. Have you ever felt convicted after doing something wrong? The Bible says that the Holy Spirit is the one that convicts us of our sin. (John 16:7-8)
Romans 10:13 NKJV – For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”
You can feel the Holy Spirit calling you to repent. Simply call out to God. Ask for forgiveness. Ask for salvation.
What do I do now?
Romans 10:17 NKJV – So then faith [comes] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Your journey as a child of the King of Kings has just begun! You must begin by spending time daily in prayer and in God’s Word, the Bible. You must also find fellowship with other believers in a Church that teaches and preaches the Bible. You should also now confess Jesus, your savior before men. Share about your new faith in Christ with your family, coworkers and others whom God has placed on your daily path.
So at this point, if you have any doubt whether or not you are saved. Simply, in your own words: "Father God, be merciful to me. I'm a sinner, I promise to the best of my ability to turn from my sin and live for you. In Jesus name, save me, forgive me, come and take charge of my life. A Man
Once you have asked Jesus Christ into your heart, read the following:
Romans 8:1: ?Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.? By accepting Jesus? death as a payment for our sins, we will never be condemned for our sins.
Romans 5:1: ?Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.? Peace with God means we have been reconciled to Him through Jesus Christ. We can now have a relationship with the living God because sin no longer separates us from Him.
