You should know that.....
1. God loves you!
The Bible says "God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life". John 3:16
The problem is that...
2. All of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong.
This is called sin and sin has separated us from God. The Bible says that "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God". God is perfect and holy and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says "The wages of sin is death". Romans 3:23
The good news is that 2000 years ago.....
3. God sent His only son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.
Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life, then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. "God demonstrated His love for us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us". Romans 5:8
Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His father. He offers us the gift of eternal life - - of living with Him forever in heaven if we accept Him as Lord and Savior. "Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me". John 14:6
God reaches out in love to you and want you to be His child. "As many as receive Him to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those that believe on His name". John 1:12
You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come into your life as your Lord and Savior.
4. If you want to accept Jesus and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this.
"Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask You to come into my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always."
