Becoming A Christian
God offers salvation, eternal life, and indeed heaven itself to everyone as a free gift! Do you know why?
The Bible tells us…
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
The wages of sin is death! (Romans 3:23a)
You cannot save yourself. You need salvation.
You have been saved by grace…not the result of works so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8–9)
All our righteous deeds are like a filthy cloth. (Isaiah 64:6b)
The Bible also tells us…
For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish, but may have eternal life! (John 3:16)
God is love.
Nothing we do will ever change God’s love for us…yet sin separates us from God.
God loves us even while we are sinners.
God proves his love for us in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
God is also just…and is judge of all the earth.
A just God could not allow sin into a perfect heaven. Since sin separates from God…it is sin that God has to deal with…
Jesus is God’s provision for salvation from sin!
God placed all our sins on the sinless Christ
- our guilt
- our shame
- our punishment
and he died for our sins!
While we were still weak…Christ died for the ungodly. (Romans 5:6) and…
He presents salvation as a gift to you.
The free gift of God is eternal life. (Romans 6:23b)
