Ever think “There has got to be more to life than this”? Well, you’re right! We were created to walk with God in a perfect community, like Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden. But eating the forbidden fruit changed everything.
God created you because He loves you and wants to enjoy a relationship with you, now & forever! He sent His Son, Jesus, to earth to show us what real Love looks like! Jesus died on the cross for us because God knew we would make mistakes and we needed a Savior. God then raised Jesus from the dead on the third day, to prove His power to save all of us – every single person He created who will trust in Him.
The bible says, “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with our mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in Him will never be put to shame” and “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
So we trust God for His gift of salvation by faith and we receive it by grace, not by following any set of rules. This is the heart of the well-known verse, John 3:16: “This is how much God loved the world: He gave His Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole & lasting life.”
PRAYER: Simply pray something like this and God will hear you and your name will be written in the book of Life forever! “Heavenly Father, I know I have done wrong and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe Jesus, Your Son, died on the cross for my sins. I submit my life to You and will trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.”
