Free Gift  

...the GIFT of God is Eternal Life...

There are basically four things you need to know from the Bible to have the assurance that when you die, you will go to Heaven.

EVERYONE IS A SINNER

 

Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God."  The reason that we "fall short" of God's glory (God's righteousness or perfect nature) is because "All have sinned."  "All" includes me and it also includes you.

First of all, you must agree with the Bible and admit that you are a sinner.

 

EVERYONE OWES A SIN-DEBT

 

Romans 6:23a "For the wages (penalty or debt) of sin is death."  This is speaking of eternal death which is also called "The second death."  REVELATION 20:14 "Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire.  This is the second death."

Secondly, you must realize that if you die in your sin, then you must pay the penalty for sin by spending eternity in Hell.

 

EVERYONE'S SIN-DEBT HAS BEEN PAID

 

Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord."  Although sin brings eternal death, God wants to give us eternal life.

Notice:  "Eternal life" is

1. Not through going to church.

2. Not through being baptized.

3. Not through being a good person, but it is "through Jesus Christ."

Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." 

The third thing you must believe is, that Jesus has paid the wages of sin by dying for you, and eternal life is only through him.

 

EVERYONE CAN BE SAVED

 

Although Jesus died to pay everyone's sin debt, not everyone is on their way to Heaven.  You must personally receive God's Gift of eternal life.  You must believe what Jesus has done for you.

Romans 10:9 "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."

 

If you would like to receive Christ Jesus as your Saviour simply bow your head right now and humbly:

1.  Confess to God that you are a sinner.

2.  Ask God to forgive your sin.

3.  By faith, trust Christ Jesus as your Saviour.

 

I John 5:13 "These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may KNOW that you have eternal life..."

 

John 10:28  "And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand."

 

John 3:36 "He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."
