1) We Have All Sinned
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” -Romans 3:23
We are all sinners by nature and by choice. God sees all—actions, thoughts, motives, and places we go. We all feel guilty and ashamed of things in our lives.
2) We Have A Penalty For Our Sin
“For the wages of sin is death.” -Romans 6:23a
Sin must be paid for. God says the payment is death. Jesus said there are 2 deaths:
(1) Physical Death God already knows the day we will die. We can’t avoid it - only prepare for it.
(2) Spiritual Death That’s when a soul dies unforgiven and pays for his own sins, and goes to Hell forever (by the way, Hell was not created for people but for the devil and demons). God doesn’t want anyone to go to Hell.
“...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” -Romans 6:23b
God sent Jesus as His free gift to us so we could receive Him and one day live in Heaven forever.
A gift can’t be bought or earned. It can only be received. Forgiveness does not come through baptism, church or good deeds. it only comes through receiving Jesus once and for all as a GIFT into our hearts by faith.
Yes, Jesus did die for everyone—but not every person is going to Heaven—only those who receive Him. We either receive or reject Christ Jesus. There is no in between. No one is born with Him in their lives. He is a gentleman and won’t come in our heart until invited.
3) We Can Have The Savior
“But God commendeth His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8
God chose to let Jesus pay for our sin by taking our place on the cross. He was spit upon, whipped, beard plucked and crucified. He loves You. He died, was buried, and arose after 3 days and is in Heaven making room for you. If you were the only sinner in the world, Jesus would have died just for you. He loves you!
To be honest, most people have never had a definite time, place and day to accept Jesus once and for all into their hearts. If it’s ever happened to you, you’d remember it! If you were to die unforgiven as you are, where does the Bible say you’d go? Is that what you want?
4) We Can Be Forgiven Now
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” -Romans 10:13
If Jesus was willing to take you just as you are, wouldn’t you be willing to take Him, ‘just as He is’? If so, just ask Him now...
Please Make This Your Own Prayer
Dear Lord, I know I’ve sinned and I’m sorry. I believe you are the Son of God. You were killed, buried and rose again to pay the penalty of my sin. I now put my trust in You and accept You as my personal Saviour. Please come into my heart and save me. Take me to Heaven when I die. Help me to live for you, in Jesus' name, Amen.
You Can Know Heaven is Your Home Now.
"And this is the record, that God hath given unto us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.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." -I John 5:11,13a
