When you stand before God at final
,judgment and he asks you "Why should I let
you into Heaven?" What will you say?
a. I have given much money to charaties, or,
b. I have not sinned too much and actually, I
am very proud of my character, or,
c. You shouldn't, but Jesus said my name
was placed in the "Book of Life" when I took
him into my heart. Can you check for me?
God's response to our problem of this separation from our creator and Lord was to
provide a Bridge. That Bridge was provided in the form of His Son, Jesus.

If you can't say the 'c' choice then you will
have a problem. Jesus is the only way to
obtain eternal life with God the Father.
It is not just knowing about Jesus, but
having a close relationship with Him that
makes the difference.
Why is this necessary?
The bible says:
"For all have sinned and fall short of the
glory of God." Romans 3:23, NIV
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift
of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our
Lord." Romans 6:23, NIV
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever
believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 NIV
What is God's solution?
Sin requires someone to pay the penalty.
God sent his Son Jesus to pay that penalty.
He was sent to die for us to redeam us.
"But God demonstrates his own love for us
in this: While we were still sinners, Christ
died for us." Romans 5:8, NIV
"For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith---and this not from yourselves,
it is a gift of God----not by works, so that no
one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9, NIV
wages of sin
but the gift
is eternal life in
Romans 6:23, NIV
What is our Response?
1. Admit your need (I am a sinner).
2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave.
4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ io come in and control your life through
the Holy Spirit (Receive Him as your Savior).
"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the
door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me." Reveration 3:20, NIV
Christ is at the Door of your heart. Just let Him in.
What to Pray
"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am sinful and I need your forgiveness. I
believe You died to pay the penalty for my sin. I want to turn from my
sin nature and follow You. I open the door to my heart and invite You
into my life. I ask this in Your Name. Amen."
"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become the children of God." John 1:12, NIV
