Jesus Christ died for YOU; for YOUR sin.
But, He didn’t just die. He rose from death back into life, testifying He alone has power over death.
Christ did this to bridge the relational gap between mankind and God. Now you can have a proper relationship with God if you have an understanding and personally accept the facts below.
I recognize I am a sinner.
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
I understand my sin bears a penalty.
Romans 6:23a “For the wages of sin is death…”
Revelation 20:15 “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
I realize God, in His love for me, has provided deliverance from the guilt and penalty of sin. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to pay my sin’s penalty through His death, and then raised Him from the dead.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
I understand the only way my present and eternal relationship with God can be made right (with sins forgiven and the assurance of Heaven) is through Jesus Christ and what He did, not on the basis of my own merit or by any other means. Therefore, I must personally trust Jesus Christ to save me and give me the gift of eternal life.
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Romans 6:23b “…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
I John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
ACCEPT, BELIEVE, CONFESS.
Would you like to tell God you are trusting Jesus as your Savior today?!
Think carefully. There is nothing more important than your need to trust Jesus Christ. If you would, why not pray right now and tell God you are trusting His Son? But, remember! It is not a prayer that saves you. It is trusting Jesus Christ that saves you. Prayer is simply how you tell God what you are doing.
