                                                   Verily, verily, I say unto you,                             

                        He that heareth my word, and believeth on him

                   that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come 

                     into condemnation; but is passed from death unto  

                                       life. –John 5:24

 

You May Have Eternal Life Today!

 

Realize That God Loves You

 

God loves you unconditionally and has a purpose for your life.

“For God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

 

The Bible Says That All Men Are Sinners

 

Our sins have separated us from God.

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

 

God’s Word Also Says That Sin

Must Be Punished

 

“For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23b)

Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death and hell, separation from God forever. If we continue in our sin, we shall die without Christ and be without God forever.

 

The Good News Is That Christ

Paid For Your Sins

 

All our sins were laid on Christ on the cross. He paid our sin debt for us. The Lord Jesus Christ died and arose from the dead. He is alive forevermore! “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

 

You Must Personally Believe On Christ Alone To Be Your Savior

 

Repenting of your sin, depend on Christ to cleanse you with his blood. “...the blood of Jesus Christ [God’s] Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (I John 1:7b)

Receive Christ by faith to save you. The Bible says, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.        (John 1:12)

 

Become a Child of God By Faith In Christ

 

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

 

Pray from your heart to God, “Lord, I know that I am a sinner. I realize Jesus Christ died to pay for my sin and rose again. Please forgive my sin, come into my heart, and save me from Hell. Thank you for giving me eternal life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

New Life Is Given To Them Who

Believe On Christ

 

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are past away; behold, all things are become new.”    (II Corinthians 5:17)

 

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life...” (I John 5:13)
