God Loves You!
The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life”
The problem is that…
All of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God.
The Bible says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says “The wages of sin is death.”
There is Hope!
The good news is that, about 2,000 years ago God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.
Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. “God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.”
Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life — of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me.”
God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name.” You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.
God accepts you just as you are!
If you want to accept Christ as your Savior and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this:
“Lord Jesus, thank you that you love me. Lord, I know that I’m a sinner and you’re the only Savior. Lord, I repent of my sin. I turn from my sin by the help of your spirit. Lord, I believe that you died on the cross. You have paid my sin debt, and Lord, I believe that you rose from the dead and you are alive. Lord, I receive you right now. Please, Lord Jesus, come into my life and save me, wash me and cleanse me, and help me to live for you for the rest of my life. When I die, take me to heaven to live for you forever. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
If you sincerely repented of your sin, put your faith in Christ, and called upon his name to save you, the Bible says you’re a Christian. Old things have passed away, new things have come, and the spirit of God has come to live within you.
Angels in heaven are rejoicing, and we at Community Baptist would love to rejoice with you as well. If you prayed to receive Christ, please let us know. We would love to rejoice with you, and to thank God for what he’s done in your life. We would also like to send you some free materials that will help you get started in the Christian life.
