Salvation

 

If you are wondering how you can have eternal life, then God is drawing you to Himself. He desires for you to know Him.
Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  God is not in Heaven yearning to ruin your fun, or rain down judgment on you.  He desires an abundant life for you filled with joy, purpose, and hope.  That abundant life starts with a personal relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ.  This relationship brings God’s blessings for this life, and the promise of a home in Heaven when this life is over.  So, how do you begin this relationship with God?

First, realize God loves you.  John 3:16 says, “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.”  The Bible teaches that regardless of your background, age, race, or any other factor, God loves you and desires a genuine, personal relationship with you.

Second, realize everyone is a sinner.  The Bible says in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”  No one is perfect.  We have all broken God’s commandments.  This is called sin, and it separates us from God.

Third, realize sin has a price that must be paid.  Romans 6:23 tells us, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." The “wage” or payment for our sin is death, which according to the Bible is eternal separation from God in a place called Hell.

Fourth, realize Jesus Christ died to pay the price for your sin.  Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”  If we choose to accept Christ, we do not have to pay the price of death and Hell for our sins because Jesus paid for our sins when He died on the Cross and rose again three days later!

Finally, pray and ask Jesus Christ to be your Saviour, and claim His promise of eternal life.  In Romans 10:13 the Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”  This is a promise directly from God that if you will pray to Him, confess that you are a sinner, ask Him to forgive your sins, and accept Him as your Savior; He promises to save you and give you the free gift of eternal life.

 

If you prayed and trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior, please let us know! 
We would love to send you information so that you can grow as a new Christian.
