Would you like to know how you can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?

 

God's Purpose: Honor and Serve Him

God created man to honor, serve, and fellowship with Him.

The Bible says:
Revelation 4:11 (NIV)
11  "You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being."


1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV)

31  So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

 

 

Man's Problem: Sin

Man chose to sin against God rather than serve Him.

The Bible says . . .
Romans 3:23 (NIV)
23  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

What does it mean to sin against God? Sin is breaking God's law. We sin by doing what God has commanded us not to do or by not doing what God has told is to do.

 

 

 

Sin's Penalty: Death

The Bible says . . .
Romans 6:23 (NIV)
23  For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.


When man chose to disobey God, the result was death. The basic meaning of death is separation. The Bible teaches that there are three types of death, or separation, that result from sin:

Spiritual death separates a person from the life of God (Ephesians 2:1)

Physical death separates a person's soul from his or her body (Hebrews 9:27)

Eternal death separates a person, both soul and body, from God forever in Hell (Revelation 20:15).

 

 

 

Then how can we ever have eternal life?

Throughout history individuals have tried many ways to gain or earn eternal life, but every attempt has been unsuccessful.

The Bible says . . .

Proverbs 14:12 (NIV)
12  There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.

Titus 3:5 (NIV)
5  he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,


Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV)
8  For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--
9  not by works, so that no one can boast.

 

 

 

Christ's Payment: Our Sinless Substitute

Jesus Christ, God's sinless Son, was sent by the Father to pay the penalty for our sins by dying on the cross in our place.

The Bible says . . .

Romans 5:8 (NIV)
8  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

1 Peter 3:18 (NIV)
18  For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God…

 

 

 

Our Pardon: Turn and Trust

How do we cross the bridge to eternal life? We must receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.

Jesus Himself said . . .
John 14:6 (NIV)
6  Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.


In order to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, you must repent of your sins and put your trust in Jesus Christ alone as the only hope of eternal life.

The Bible says . . .

Acts 3:19 (NIV)
19  Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,


Acts 16:31 (NIV)
31  They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved--you and your household."

 

 

God's Promise: Eternal Life

Jesus Christ said. . .

John 5:24 (NIV)
24  "I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.


This verse has one promise with thee parts . . .

The person who believes:
     
1. Has eternal life
     2. Does not come into judgment
     3. Has passed from death into life.

 


 

Will you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior today?

To do so you must . . .

   1. Admit that you have sinned against God and ask Him
       for forgiveness.
   2. Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God Who
       died for you on the cross, rose from the dead, and is Lord.
   3. Call upon Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior.
