Jesus and you
God wants you to know
God's Plan: Peace and Life
God created you that He might have fellowship with you. He loves you and wants you to experience peace and life, abundant and eternal.
“. . . I am come that they might have life, and that
they might have it abundantly.”
Man's Problem: Sin and Separation
However, Adam, the first man chose to disobey God by doing his own will rather than God’s. Every descendant of Adam has been making the same choice ever since. This is called sin and results in death (separation from God).
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
“For the wages of sin is death (separation from God) . . .”
God's Remedy: The Cross and Forgiveness
Jesus Christ is God’s only solution to man’s sin problem. He died to pay the penalty for our sin and rose again so that we might be forgiven and experience God’s plan of peace and life.
“Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life,
no man comes to the Father but by Me.”
“But God commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Man's Response: Believe and Receive
We must repent of our sin and believe the Lord Jesus Christ did on the cross and that He rose from the grave. We must ask Him to save us, trusting in Christ alone and receive salvation as His gift.
“And they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ
and you shall be saved, and your house.’”
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave power
to become the sons of God, even to them that
believe on His name.”
If you would like to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, then you may pray this suggested prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for loving me. I know I am a sinner but I believe Jesus died to pay the penalty for my sin. I believe that He was buried and then rose from the grave three days later. I repent of my sin and receive you Lord Jesus as my Savior. Come into my life and make me the kind of person you want me to be. Thank you for saving me. Amen.
You should know that there is no magic in that prayer. God knows your heart and He knows if you are serious about trusting Jesus. However, if you sincerely prayed that prayer, would you please let us know. We'd love to hear about what God is doing in your life. We would also like to provide some materials to help you grow in your new found faith. I promise you, this decision will change your life, as well as your eternal destiny!
