The First Step:|
Finding Jesus Christ
My friend: I am asking you the most important
question of your life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends upon
your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good
you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you
will go to Heaven when you die?
God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be
born again. In
John 3:7, Jesus said to
Nicodemus, "Ye must be born again."
In the Bible, God gives us the plan of how to
be born again which means to be saved. His
plan is simple! You can be saved today. How?
First, my friend, you must realize you are a
sinner. "For all have sinned, and come short of the
glory of God"
Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to
die. "For the wages [payment] of sin
is death" (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell.
"... it is appointed unto men once to die,
but after this the judgment"
But God loved you so much he gave his only
begotten Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place.
"For he hath
made him (Jesus, who knew no sin)
to be sin for us ... that we might be made the righteousness of God in him"
Jesus had to shed his blood and die.
"For the life of the flesh is
in the blood"
without shedding of blood is no remission
[pardon]" (Hebrews 9:22).
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in
that, while we were yet sinners, Christ
died for us" (Romans 5:8).
Although we cannot understand how, God said my
sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and
he died in our place. He became our
substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.
now commandeth all men everywhere to
repent" (Acts 17:30).
This repentance is a change of mind that
agrees with God that one is a sinner, and
also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the cross.
In Acts 16:30,31, the Philippian jailer asked
Paul and Silas: "... Sirs, what must I do to be saved?'
they said, `Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved... .'"
Simply believe on him as the one who bore your
sin, died in your place, was buried, and
whom God resurrected.
His resurrection powerfully assures that the
believer can claim everlasting life when
Jesus is received as Savior.
"But as many as received him, to them gave
he power to become the sons of God, even to
them that believe on his name" (John 1:12).
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved"
Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means
not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved.
Surely, you realize you are a sinner. Right
now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.
In Luke 18:13, a sinner prayed:
"God be merciful to me a sinner."
"Oh, God, I know I am a sinner.
I believe Jesus was my substitute when he died on the cross. I believe his shed blood, death,
burial, and resurrection
were for me. I now receive him as my Savior. I thank you for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation
and everlasting life,
because of your merciful grace. Amen."
Just take God at his word and claim his
salvation by faith. Believe, and you will
be saved. No church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the saving. All of it!
God's simple plan of salvation is: You are a
sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on
Jesus who died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on him as your crucified,
buried, and risen Savior, you receive
forgiveness for all of your sins and his gift of eternal salvation by faith.
You say, "Surely, it cannot be that simple."
Yes, It's that simple! It is scriptural. It is
God's plan. My friend, believe on Jesus and receive him as Savior today.
If you have just accepted Jesus Christ as your
personal Savior, and life long friend. I would certainly like to know. Please
email me and share this wonderful news with me.
