I John 5:13, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God: that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the Son of God."
1. Recognize Your Condition
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23
No one is good enough to go to Heaven on his own merit. No matter how much good we do, we still fall short.
2. Realize The Penalty For Sin
"For the wages of sin is death;" Romans 6:23 a
Just as there are wages for good, there is punishment for wrong. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called Hell.
3. Believe Christ Died For You
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Christ's great love for us was shown when He died on the cross to pay our sin debt.
4. Trust Christ Alone As Your Saviour
"but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Roman 6:23 b
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him by faith.
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." Romans 10:9-11
Let us help you in a word of prayer. (Realize that it's not mere words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ.)
"Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sins. Jesus, come into my heart and save my soul from an eternal Hell. I'm trusting in you, and you alone, to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving me, Jesus, Amen."
If you prayed that prayer, I would like to encourage you to join us for services this Sunday so that we may rejoice with you over your new found joy!
