1. We have all sinned.
As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
God’s Word reminds us that we are all sinners and that we all have sinned. We have all fallen short of God’s requirements and cannot depend on our own goodness to get to heaven.
2. There is a price for sin.
For the wages of sin is death…
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
A wage is a payment. The payment for your sin is death and separation from God in a place that the Bible calls Hell.
3. Jesus paid that price.
…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
God gave us a gift. That gift is eternal life in Heaven. We can’t do anything to earn our way to Heaven. The only way is through accepting and receiving the free gift of eternal life.
4. We must believe in Jesus.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
To believe on Jesus Christ as Savior means to believe that He died for you, believe that He paid the price for your sin, and believe that He is the only way to Heaven. You can express your belief on Jesus by calling on Him in prayer. Let us help you with a prayer. (Realize it’s not mere words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ.)
“Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe that you died on the cross and paid the penalty for my sin. I believe that you rose from the dead three days later. I am placing my faith in you alone to forgive my sin and save me. Thank you for giving me eternal life, in Jesus’ name, AMEN.”
