These are very uncertain times, and instability describes much of life today. Jesus is the rock upon which you can firmly stand as you weather the storms around you.
According to 1 John 5:13, one of the primary reasons God gave His word to man was so that we could KNOW how we might have eternal life.
It is our prayer that you will seriously consider the following truths from the Holy Bible.
1. YOU ARE A SINNER.
The Bible says that having violated His law (1 John 3:4), we all stand guilty before a holy God (Romans 3:19; James 2:10). To deny this is true would be to call God a liar (1 John 1:8-10).
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one (Romans 3:10).
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not (Ecclesiastes 7:20).
2. YOU NEED A SAVIOR.
The Bible says our sins have separated us from God (Isaiah 59:2), put us at enmity against Him (Romans 5:10), and made us unable to stand before His judgment (Psalm 1:5) or enter into His heaven (Revelation 21:27).
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear (Isaiah 59:2).
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous (Psalm 1:5).
3. JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY SAVIOR.
And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world (1 John 4:14).
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11).
The Bible says that the God who created all things (John 1:1) took upon Himself the form of a man (John 1:14) and was born of a virgin (Matthew 1:23) in a manger at Bethlehem (Luke 2:1-7). He lived a perfect, sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22) then laid down His life on the cross to both bear and pay for the sins of the whole world (Romans 5:6-8; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 John 2:2). Three days later He rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
So it is clear that no church can take away your sins, for it was JESUS who died on the cross for you. And no religion can take away your sins — JESUS died on the cross for you. No pope or priest or rabbi can take away your sins — JESUS died on the cross for you. No good deed or religious ritual can take away your sins — JESUS died on the cross for you. Only JESUS can take your sins away (John 1:29; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 3:5)!
4. BELIEVE ON JESUS CHRIST AND BE SAVED TODAY.
If you will place your faith and trust not in yourself, not in your good works, not in your church membership or baptism, but wholly and completely in the One who came to be your Savior, God has promised to forgive your sins and give you the free gift of everlasting life (Romans 6:23; Romans 10:9-13).
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).
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved (Acts 16:31).
There is no other way.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me (John 14:6).
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit (1 Peter 3:18).
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time (1 Timothy 2:5-6).
Death is called the ultimate statistic: 10 out of 10 people die (Romans 5:12) — 150,000 every day.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (Hebrews 9:27).
What if your appointment were today? Are you ready? You can be. You now know what the Bible says: (1) that you are a sinner; (2) that you need a Savior; and (3) that Jesus Christ is the only Savior.
The question is will YOU believe on Him today and be saved?
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2).
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation (Hebrews 2:3).
