We Are All Sinners
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23
Every person who has ever lived has missed God's standard of perfection.
God Loves Us
...for God is love. 1 John 4:8
While God loves us and doesn't want to punish us, we should also know that, as a just God, He must punish sin.
...the soul that sinneth, it shall die. Ezekiel 18:4
God Balanced Justice and Love Through His Son
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
Jesus is the infinite God-man, God in the flesh. He died on the cross and rose from the dead to pay the penalty for our sins and to purchase a place for us in heaven, which He offers as a free gift.
The Gift of Eternal Life is Received By Faith
Saving faith is not merely intellectual assent. It is trusting in Jesus Christ alone and what He has done rather than what we can do to get us to heaven.
...what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. Acts 16:30b, 31
The Bible says, "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." You can do that now by simply praying:
"Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and do not deserve eternal life. But I believe You died and rose from the grave to purchase a place in heaven for me. Jesus, come into my life, take control of my life, forgive my sins, and save me. I am now placing my trust in You alone for my salvation, and I accept your free gift of eternal life."
If this prayer is the sincere desire of your heart, look at the promise of Jesus:Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.John 6:47
