1. WE HAVE ALL SINNED
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" ~ Romans 3:23
No one is good enough to go to Heaven on his or her own merit. No matter how much good we do, we still fall short. God's Word reminds us that we all have sinned. We have all fallen short of God's requirements, for at one time or another, we have all deliberately chosen to disobey God.
2. SIN HAS A PENALTY
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
~ Romans 6:23
A wage is a payment. The payment for your sin is death and separation from God in a place that the Bible calls "Hell." Mankind has tried unsuccessfully for thousands of years to pay their sin debt by things such as "good works" or "religion." Yet, man is still without a home in Heaven.
3. JESUS PAID THE PENALTY
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
~ Romans 5:8
The word commendeth means "proved." God proved His love for you by giving His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for your sins. The Bible tells us in John 3:16, "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."
4. BELIEVE ON JESUS TODAY!
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath rasied Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
~ Romans 10:9
To believe on Jesus Christ as Saviour means to believe that He died for you, believe that He paid the price for sin, and believe that He is the only way to Heaven. You can express your belief in Jesus Christ by calling on Him in prayer.
"Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe that you died on the cross and paid the penalty for my sin. I believe that you rose from the dead three days alter. I am placing my faith in you alone to forgive my sin and save me. Thank you for giving me eternal life. In Jesus' name, AMEN."
