BECAUSE OF GOD'S LOVE AND
MERCY THERE IS HOPE!
Where justice met mercy
Even though God's own creation had disobeyed Him, He still loved us so much
that He gave the ultimate sacrifice so we could be forgiven of our sins."But
God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).
Jesus saves sinners
There is no greater love than this! Jesus Christ gave His own life so we
could be forgiven of our sins and be brought back into fellowship with God.
God does not want you to go to hell!
Jesus died for you. God knew that mankind needed a redeemer so that they
could be brought back into fellowship with Him. "For there is one God, and
one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" (1 Timothy 2:5).
This is why Jesus had to die on the cross. He became our substitute, so we
could be forgiven. He took the penalty for our sins, so that we could be
FREE! When Christ shed His blood on the cross, He redeemed all those who
would come to Him so they could be freed from the curse of sin.
The debt of sin has been paid in full by Jesus Christ, the Son of the living
God! When you believe in Jesus Christ and invite Him into your life, He
washes away every sin you have ever committed.
How long must I wait? God is holy and cannot allow anyone with sin into
heaven. That is why we need the righteousness of Christ to cover us. This
must be done by believing in Jesus Christ and by accepting Him as your
Savior and submitting to Him as the Lord of your life. Making Jesus your
Savior means that you believe that Jesus died so you could be forgiven.
Making Jesus your Lord means that you put Him first in your life. Your
submitting to His authority allows Him to begin making necessary changes in
your life. This is by far the most important decision you can ever make in
this lifetime because Jesus Christ is the only way you can go to heaven and
Yes, the penalty of hell is severe and more horrible than the human mind can
fathom. But God in His awesome love and grace towards his creation has
provided this gift of salvation. This gift of eternal life in heaven is free
for the asking! God has made his plan of salvation so simple, even a child
can understand it. So you are without excuse!
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life ..." John 14:6
The Bible says in Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth
the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised
him(Jesus) from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man
believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto
salvation. To learn more about the Lord Jesus Christ read Divine
Appointment, or if you would like to receive God's free gift of salvation,
you can do this right now by asking God for it. If you are ready to submit
to the Lordship of Jesus Christ so He can save you from sin and hell ask Him
to come into your heart and life. Just say a simple prayer like the one
below meaning it with all your heart.
Dear Lord God. I come to You a sinner and I humbly repent. I believe that
Jesus Christ is Lord and I believe You raised Him from the dead. Come into
my life Jesus and be my Lord and Savior. I receive You, Lord Jesus to change
and take control of my life that I may live for You from this day forth and
from now on. Thank You Lord for saving me and cleansing me with Your
precious blood. In Jesus name, Amen.
If you have called on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, by faith, believing
and asking Him to save you, you are saved! Words mean nothing without
belief! If you truly believe, you will humbly allow Christ to begin working
in your life so you can fulfill the plan He has for you. The Bible says in 1
John 2:3, "And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his
commandments". If we truly know Jesus Christ as our personal savior, we will
KEEP His commandments and our hearts desire will be to SERVE Him in any way
