Jesus Came to Give You the Gift of Eternal Life

These are the biblical facts that make possible your personal relationship with God:

God Loves You

He created you and wants to have a personal relationship with you now on earth and eternally in heaven (John 3:16).

Sin has Separated You from God

The Bible defines sin as choosing our will over God’s. We have each made this mistake (Romans 3:23). Our sins have separated us from God (Isaiah 59:2).

You cannot repair your broken relationship with God.

Many people think we can be good or religious enough to earn God’s forgiveness and go to heaven when we die, but the Bible teaches that the only payment for sin is death (Romans 6:23). Someone died for the sins we have committed.

Jesus died to pay the debt owed by us because of our sins.

Since Jesus was sinless and owed no debt to God, his death could pay for our sins. He took our place on the cross and suffered the penalty we deserved. His death now makes it possible for a righteous God to forgive our sins and offer us salvation (Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 2:1-2).

You must trust in what Jesus has done for you rather than trusting in your own efforts to restore your relationship with God. In faith rely completely on Jesus to make you right with God. Confess your sins to God , and rest in God’s provision in Christ Jesus. Decide that you will acknowledge Jesus as the Lord and Master publicly, (Matthew 10:37)

How can you make this decision?

Through prayer you can meet Jesus today. Call out to him and ask God to save you. (Romans 10:13).

Dear God.
Thank you for loving me. Thank you that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins. I admit to you that I am a sinner, that I need you to save me, and I ask you to forgive me of my sins. I turn from them now. I invite Jesus into my life as my Savior and Lord. I turn my life over to Him. I desire to live for Him as long as I live. Thank you for giving me eternal life and making me a child of God. In Jesus’ name,
