Beyond this life is an existence that will never end. And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand (John 10:28). It is promised to be better than anything we could imagine. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9).
However this place is reserved for those who love God. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God (John 3:3).
God knew that you would need a Saviour because there is no perfect person. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
The Bible says Jesus is God’s only son and He is the only one through whom all mankind can be saved from eternal punishment.
John 14:6 states: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus is the only one that we can go to God through if we want to have eternal life. Sin has entered the world and we are under its power. No one can be set free from sin without Jesus.
If we have a right relationship with God’s Son Jesus today, we are acceptable to God who saves us by his Grace. Salvation is God’s gift to all who call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Can we receive Eternal Life just by believing in what we think is right?
No. No one can come to God except through Jesus Christ.
Acts 4:12 - Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Salvation is a gift from God. You can’t earn it, work for it or ever be good enough to receive it. It only comes through believing by Faith that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
If we ask God, He will forgive all our sins no matter what we have done.
1 John 1:9 says: If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
How to receive peace & forgiveness with God:
1. Admit to God that you want to be free from sin’s death penalty
2. Confess your sins to God, asking Him to forgive you for living without Him
3. Believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead
4. Receive by faith, ask Jesus to come into your heart to give you God’s free gift of salvation
The Sinner’s Prayer
Lord I admit that I need you and I confess my sin. Please forgive me for living without you. I believe your Son Jesus died on the cross for my sin. Please cleanse me now. I ask you to come into my heart and my life. Please be my Saviour from this day forward until you call me home. Amen.
The evidence of a new life in Christ will be peace in your heart, which will follow your confession of faith. You are now alive spiritually. You are now guaranteed eternal life in Heaven when you die if you continue to believe and trust God. Once you have taken these steps, it is necessary to read the Bible and pray to God daily, asking Him to show you how to live according to his plan. Romans 12:2 -And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
If you decided to take these steps, then we would like to congratulate you. You are at the beginning of an incredible journey with God. It would be great to hear from you and to offer you support with your next steps.
