to share the Gospel message with as many people as God will allow.Did you know that "Gospel" means GOOD NEWS?
From God's Word and our hearts:
"For ALL have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God." Romans 3:23
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23
"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
These give us the hope that although we deserve death, God gives us a path to eternal life by accepting a relationship with Jesus. Jesus took the penalty for our sin through His death on the cross. Being a good person is not enough, being a member of a church is not enough, only you can choose to accept this gift, the eternal life that only God can provide.
"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13
Again, the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. "We implore you on Christ's behalf: be reconciled to God." 2 Corinthians 5:20b
It is in saying a heartfelt prayer, something like: Father God, I understand now that I am a sinner and that my sin separates me from you. I understand that you love me and that your Son Jesus paid my sin debt in full through his shed blood and death on the cross. Lord, thank you for your son Jesus. I accept Him into my heart today. May I now become all that you created me to be. Amen.
If you have just said a prayer, similar to that above, you have just invited Jesus Christ into your heart, life and living.Congratulations!We would love to share in your celebration, please let us know.
