free gift of salvation
“Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 124:8
There is a way to know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour and to know for sure, that when you die, you will go to heaven with Him.
In order to know for sure, we must…
1.Realize that God loves you: God loves you and has a plan for your life.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
2.The Bible says that all men are sinners: Our sins have separated us from God.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
God made man in His own image. He gave man the ability to choose right from wrong. We choose to sin. Our sins separate us from God.
3.God’s Word also says that sin must be paid for
“For the wages of sin is death…” Romans 6:23
Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death and hell, separation from God forever. If we continue in our sin, we shall die without Christ and be without God forever.
4.The Good News is that Christ paid for our sins: All our sins were laid on Christ on the cross. He paid our sin debt for us. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, and He arose from the dead. He is alive forevermore.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
5.We must confess our sins, repent and turn to the Lord
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
6.We must personally pray and ask Christ to save us
the Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
If the Lord has spoken to you and you will trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour, then pray a simple prayer of faith. It is not the words of the prayer that save you, but placing faith in what Jesus did for you.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, please contact us and share the good news!
