Knowing for Sure
Do You Know Christ as Your Personal Savior?
Have you ever received the Lord Jesus Christ into your life?
Realize that God loves you and has a plan for your life. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
The Bible says that all men are Sinners.
Our sins have separated us from God. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
God made man in His own image.
He gave man the ability to choose right from wrong. We choose to sin. Our sins keep us from God.
God's Word also says that sin must be paid for.
"For the wages of sin is death..." Romans 6:23 Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death and hell, separation from God forever. If we continue in our sin, we shall die without Christ and be without God forever.
The Good News is that Christ paid for our sins.
All of our sins were laid on Christ on the cross. He paid our sin debt for us. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, and He arose from the dead. He is alive forevermore. "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
THIS IS CALLED THE GOSPEL (GOOD NEWS) OF JESUS CHRIST
"Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen..." I Corinthians 15:1-5a
We must personally pray and receive Christ by faith.
The Bible says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
Everlasting life begins when we receive Christ as our Savior.
