Have you received God's gift of eternal life?
The Bible shows us how to receive eternal life.
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that you may know that you have eternal life." (I John 5:13). God wants you to know from His Word how to have eternal life.
God declares that we are all sinners.
"For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;" (Romans 3:23) We need eternal life because we are sinners.
Because of our sin we are under the penalty for sin.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23) Sin brings the penalty of death, but…
God paid the penalty when He sent His only Son to die on the cross for our sins.
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) God's love is so great that He made a way for our sins to be forgiven by Jesus Christ.
God gave His Son to give us eternal life.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16 God offers eternal life as a Gift, purchased with Christ's blood on the cross. But like all gifts, it is not yours until you receive it.
Here is how you can receive Christ.
"That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9) You must believe in your heart and call upon the Lord to save you. "For whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
Will you pray right now,
"Dear Lord Jesus, I am a sinner and cannot save myself. I believe that you are the Son of God and You shed Your blood on the cross for my sins. I believe Your death, burial, and resurrection was for me. I now receive You as my Savior and ask You to come into my heart. Thank You for saving me and giving me eternal life. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen."
