A NEW LIFE IN CHRIST!
When was the last time you really felt at peace? If there was a way to attain genuine, lasting peace and security and confidence in the future, would you want it?
Do you ever wish you could be free of the guilt you feel over something in your past? If you were offered complete and full forgiveness for your sins so they were completely wiped out, would you accept that pardon?
If you were to die today, do you think you'd go to heaven? If you could know for sure how to get to heaven, would you pursue it?
Here's how you can have real peace, full forgiveness and the assurance of eternal life in heaven.
1. Admit that you are a sinner.
"As it is written, There is no one righteous, not even one." (Romans 3:10)
"There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
Many people hope they will make it to heaven because they haven't been "too bad" and perhaps have done a lot of "good" things. The idea is that if their good outweighs the bad, they will be accepted into heaven. Quite often people compare themselves with those who have committed terrible acts of wrong against others and think they should be allowed into heaven because they're not nearly as bad as those truly evil people. But the Word of God says, " all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." God judges us with his own perfect righteousness, and therefore "there is no one righteous, not even one."
2. Realize the penalty of sin.
"For the wages of sin is death..." (Romans 6:23)
"Sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death." (James 1:15)
Death means "separation from God," in hell, forever. How terrible, but true. Yet, God is "not willing that any should perish."
3. Accept God's provision for your sin.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23)
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
"God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Corinthians 5:21)
Jesus Christ took your sins upon himself and therefore paid the penalty for your sins by dying on the cross. He was buried, but rose to life on the third day, just as the scriptures had said he would, victorious over sin and death.
4. Personally receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God."
No matter where you are, or the condition of your life, you need Jesus Christ to be your Savior and Lord. You cannot effectively deal with your sins any other way. Now is the time to come to Him. Pray to Him right now saying something like this: Lord Jesus, I need You. I admit that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sins. I want to turn from my sins. Please forgive me and come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name, Amen.
If you sincerely prayed that prayer, you are now a child of God! You have the peace of God, the forgiveness only He could provide, and the promise of eternal life with Him. Please let us know of your decision so we can send you some literature to help you in your new life.
