If you were to die today, do you know where you would spend eternity? There is a way you can know. Jesus Christ, God's only son, who came to this earth to die so that you and I might have eternal life is the way. God wants every one of His children to spend eternity with Him. He has provided a way, but you have to accept Him in your own heart. Here are a few steps that can lead you to everlasting life with our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ.
1. God loves you.
The Bible says in John 3:16-17
2. You are a sinner in need of
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
This is our human nature. God, through His Holy Spirit, will let you know that you are separated from a relationship with Him because of sin and you will face His judgment.
Romans 6:23 says:
For the wages of sin is death;...
The Bible says if we die in our sins we will spend eternity separated from God in a place called Hell.
3. God wants to forgive
4. You must turn away from your sin.
5. You must place your faith in God's Son, Jesus Christ.
6. You receive Jesus Christ through prayer.
Prayer is simply talking to God. You can be assured when you call on Him to save you, he will hear you.
Through prayer, you can:
A- Admit to God that you are a sinner and that you are turning from your sin;
B- Believe in Jesus by thanking Him for dying on the cross and rising from the dead for your sin;
C- Commit your life to Jesus by asking Him to come into your life as your Savior and Lord.
Accepting Christ is the beginning. Next you should follow Christ in Baptism and unite with a church.
If today you've made a decision to follow Jesus we would love to hear from you!!!
