God’s Love is Revealed John 3:16

                 God loves you and all of mankind.  He wants to bless your life and make it full and complete.  He offers you not only an abundant life here and now, but a life which is eternal—His very own life.

 
               Man is Sinful Romans 3:23

                 The saying, “Well, we are only human—nobody is perfect,” is biblically sound.  When we acknowledge this truth, we can see our separation from God, for He is holy.


               Sin Has a Penalty Romans 6:23  
       
                 To continue in sin will result in spiritual death, which is separation from God forever.  The alternative is to personally receive God’s free gift, which is pardon for sin and provision of life everlasting.

                             
               Christ Paid the Penalty Romans 5:8

                 You may think you must lead a “good life” and do charitable acts before God will love you.  This is not so.  God loves you even in your sin.  He sent Christ to die in your place and to pay the penalty for your sin so that you can be reconciled to Him.

 
               Salvation is a Free Gift Ephesians 2:8,9 

                  Grace means underserved favor.  God graciously offers to you what you could never do for yourself.  God’s gift to you is free.  You do not, and cannot, work for a gift.  All you need to do is receive it.  Believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ died for you to provide deliverance from your sins and to give your eternal life.

 
               We Must Receive Christ John 1:12

                   When you receive Christ—when you accept what He has done for you—you become a child of God.  Picture, if you will, Jesus Christ standing at the door of your life.  Invite Him in.  He is waiting to be received into your life.

              
               Receive Christ Now


You can invite Jesus into your life right now by praying to God something like the following:

Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner and that I need Your forgiveness.  I believe that Christ died in my place to pay the penalty for my sin and that He rose from the dead. I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my life as my Savior. Thank You for making me Your child.  Help me learn to please You in every part of my life.

 

 
               God’s Promises from His Word Romans 10:13

                     If you just now received Christ by calling upon the name of the Lord in prayer, the following took place: your sins were forgiven (Colossians 1:14), you became a child of God (John 1:12), you were make an heir to all of God’s Blessings (Romans 8:16,17), and you now possess everlasting life (1 John 5:12, 13)!
 
You became a Christian the moment you received Christ. Don’t trust your feelings, for they will change.  Take God at His Word and believe His promises.  You should be able to say with assurance, “I have received Christ.  On the authority of God’s Word, I have eternal life.”

May God grant you "all joy and peace in believing."  Romans 15:13
 

Start Memorizing Scripture

The Bible says that without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). It also says that faith comes
from hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17). The more scripture you know, the stronger your faith will
become. Psalm 119:9-13
