Do you want to meet Jesus and live forever?
You can! Today you can make the decision that will allow you to meet Jesus and live forever.
However, no one can make that decision for you. It is something you must decide for yourself. The Bible tells us that "For God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall have everlasting life." (John 3:16). So, The Bible says that whosoever believeth will have everlasting life. That includes you! Way back in The Garden of Eden, man had a perfect relationship with God. There was nothing to hinder perfect fellowship with God. However, when Adam and Eve chose to sin, they destroyed that relationship. They were sinners. Because God is Absolutely Holy and there had to be a penalty for sin.
The Bible tells us that "There is none righteous, no, not one." (Romans 3:10), and also, "For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God." (Romans 3:23). So today we are just like Adam. We are all sinners! It does not matter if you robbed a bank or stole a cookie, you still have sinned. Have you lied, hated, lusted, stolen, been selfish, committed adultery (sex outside of marriage), failed to keep the Sabbath Holy, dishonored your parents, blasphemed His Name (using it in a curse word), made God to suit yourself, or have you been guilty of idolatry (making God in your own image)? If you have, you are a sinner.
Death is the result of man's sin. "The wages of sin is death." (Romans 6:23). The Bible speaks of two kinds of death: physical death that we are all familiar with, and spiritual death, mentioned in Revelation 20:14-15. "This is the second death, and whosoever was not found written in The Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire." This second death is experienced by all those who have not restored their relationship with God.
How can man restore his relationship with God? Man is not able to do this himself; only God can accomplish this. God sent His Son, who was the only perfect One, to pay for our sins "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by The Spirit." (1 Peter 3:18).
Christ paid the price for our sins so that we would not have to pay for them ourselves by experiencing spiritual death. Christ was our payment and substitute. Christ died for your sins to restore your relationship with God and to make you perfect in God's eyes.
You must accept that payment for your sins or pay for your sins with your own death which would result in eternal separation from God.
(Romans 10:9-10) tells us, "That if thou shall 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." In (Romans 10:13), it says "For whosoever shall call upon the name of The Lord shall be saved."
When you realize your sinfulness and call upon The Lord, He saves you from the penalty of your sin and gives you new life. Just as Jesus was resurrected after His crucifixion and burial, you too will experience a new life. His crucifixion paid for our sins. His resurrection gave us a new life.
Do you want to live forever? You can. Christ died for you. Won't you accept His death and resurrection? If you will, please Pray this Prayer: Lord, I know that I am a sinner and deserve to die. Thank You for sending Your Son to die for my sins. I accept this payment for my sins. Thank you for saving me. Amen.
Now that you have received Christ as your Savior, you will need to obey His Word (The Bible) and grow as a Christian.
