Friend, we live in a complicated world. Many times, it's very difficult to determine what is real and what is simply another fraud or hoax. Our lives are busy, and we often find ourselves tired, confused, and wishing there was something more to live for. Thankfully, although we live in a day of confusion, we have a source of Truth that can be trusted. Read on and discover the "Simple Truth" from the pages of God's Word.
1. God wants us to UNDERSTAND.
"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:32
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
"...there is none righteous, no, not one." Romans 3:10
2. God wants us to KNOW that a penalty must be paid for sin.
That payment is death."For the wages of sin is death..." Romans 6:23a. That death speaks of a physical, spiritual, and eternal separation from God. God is holy and cannot allow sin into Heaven.
3. God wants us to SEE that His Son, Jesus Christ, chose to die so that mankind could live.
Jesus died in our place and paid the penalty of death for us. "But God commendeth His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
4. God wants us to BELIEVE that we can be pardoned because of His grace.
"Therefore, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 5:1
5. Most of all, God wants us to RECEIVE His Son, Jesus Christ.
"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." John 3:36; "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
Friend, wouldn't you like to have eternal life today? Take time to invite Jesus Christ into your heart as your personal Saviour. Simply pray...
Dear God, I understand that I am a sinner, and I realize that there is a penalty required for my sin. I believe that you died, were buried, and rose again to pay that debt for me. Please forgive me and come into my heart. I'm trusting You to forgive all of my sins and one day take me to heaven. Thank You for dying on the cross for me. Thank you for giving me the gift of eternal life today, in Jesus' name...Amen.
