Did you know?
When you make Jesus the Lord of your life, the angels rejoice? It’s true!
But there’s hope!
Jesus became man and lived life in the flesh. He led the perfect life we should have lived. He died the death we deserved, but that wasn’t the end of the story!
Jesus is alive!
Yes, He rose again on the third day as it was prophesied (Hosea 6:1-3), and now the work is complete. Finished. There’s not a thing anyone can add to it.
You don’t need to wait until you are perfect to come to Him (you won’t ever be).
There is only one thing you must do.
Ah! A trick! No, not at all. All you have to do is believe and receive. You simply need to repent of your sins, recognize that they are paid for and nailed to the cross that Jesus died on, and accept His payment for your sins as if you had paid it yourself. But God doesn’t require you to pay for any sin, past, present, or future. Then confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. Once you become a Christian, you are a brand, new creation.
That’s where repentance comes in.
Repentance means to turn the other way, a 180° turn away from sin and back to God. And no, He will not be disappointed or mad or anything. Remember Luke 15:10? (It’s up at the top.) Forgiveness is always there for you, and His arms are stretched wide to receive you back when you simply turn around. God never leaves. He is always present. If you don’t see God, it’s because you have turned away from Him. Simply turn around!
Here’s the best part.
Not only are you saved from hell (yes, it’s a very real place) and saved for heaven, but now you get to live your LIFE IN THE LIGHT!
Let me pray with you.
I’m going to pray a simple prayer for salvation, and if you will pray along with me and believe in your heart, you will be saved! Ready?
Now there is one more thing…
GO TELL SOMEONE! OUT LOUD AND WITH ALL YOUR HEART!
