Nothing at all.
But who I want you to know means your eternity. I want you to learn to love Jesus Christ as your personal Savior as I have.
It’s very simple according to the Bible. But first let me remind, it’s not EASY, I said it is simple.
- You realize you aren’t perfect right?
We all make mistakes, either cheat, steal, use our mouth in an unkind way, or say things we shouldn’t.
We have looked at things we know we should not have and coveted.
We have been proud.
God tells us:
“For all have sinned” meaning everyone has made a mistake against God to the point that we “come short of the glory of God” meaning that we cannot make it to Heaven on our own because the Bible also says “Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us…” (Romans 3:23/ Titus 2:5) In other places in scripture it says “There is none good no not one” “There is none righteous no not one” “All our righteousnesses are as filthy rags”
John 3:16 is so clear that “God so loved the world that he gave his only Begotten Son” Jesus. He said that if anyone anywhere only believes on him that they will have “Everlasting life”
The cross is very important for there Jesus shed perfect sinless blood for us “Not by the blood of goats and calves…but by the blood of Jesus”
The Bible also says that “..by grace we are saved through faith” and that it’s not anything that we can do to earn it because it isn’t by works because then we would be full of pride and bragging in Heaven about what “WE” did. “For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God not of works lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life no man cometh unto the Father but by me” He also said “I am the door, by me if any man enter in he shall be saved” (John 14/John 10)
Peter preached “Neither is there salvation in any other for there is no other name under Heaven given among men to be saved by.
Only Jesus is God. Not Buddha or Allah, or any other “MAN” in the flesh. Nor our good deeds to save us!
- Jesus was virgin born because he was God.
Mary was only used to carry Christ! He came from Heaven as 100% God yet became flesh and dwelt among us and many many many beheld him (Over 500 after he died.) and over 24,000 historical documents attest to this fact Jesus was real and he was God and he did what he said he would that he resurrected from the grave!
No one else can nor ever has done that!
So it’s simple. We’re sinners, We need Jesus. We have to have his blood cover our sins!
- You must have faith.
Faith that Jesus is God and that he will not ever lie, he is who he said he is. He can wash away your sins forever and remove the guilt and give eternal life in Heaven!
The alternative? What if you say no to Jesus?
“And in Hell he lift up his eyes” as the Bible puts it “Being in torment” and he cried “I am tormented in this flame” as he begged for a drop of water in Luke chapter 16.
- Don’t let this be you!
Next you must be so sorry that you’re sinful condition that you decide that you want to change. You want Jesus to come in and make you a different person. It’s when you decide that you don’t want to live in sin anymore, you’re tired of the lifestyle and you need deliverance!
Ask Jesus to forgive you and confess to others. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead thou shalt be saved for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
If you don’t believe this or you’re in doubt pray this and really mean it:
“God please show me that you are who you say you are in my personal life, I want to believe in you Jesus.” (Try to read the book of John in the Bible)
If you understand this and you want to be saved, all you have to do is from your heart tell God something like:
“I’m a sinner and I know I’m not perfect but please forgive me I am believing in you Jesus and I put my trust in you as my personal God and Lord and Savior. I am sorry for the things I’ve done. I am now asking you to save me from the fiery Hell and deliver me through your Son Jesus.”
HE WILL! Because that’s what he did for me! And that’s why we do what we do.
