Through Jesus, God offers all human beings forgiveness from sin, a personal and loving relationship with him, peace and power to live this life, and eternal life in Heaven when we die. Because Jesus gave his life for us on the cross and rose again from the dead, he is the only one who can rescue and redeem in this way.
There are four things God wants you to know so you can be saved:
1. We are all sinners.
“As the scripture says, no one is righteous – not even one.” – Romans 3:10
“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” – Romans 3:23
Question: Do you agree with God that you are a sinner?
2. There is a penalty for sin.
“For the wages of sin is death.” – Romans 6:23a
“But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” – Revelation 21:8
Question: According to this verse, does it sound like you would go to Heaven or does it sound like you would go to the Lake of Fire?
3. Jesus died for us and his death is the only hope we have to be forgiven.
“But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” – Romans 5:8
“…but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 6:23b
Question: Do you believe that Jesus died on the cross for you?
4. We must believe that Jesus is Lord and ask him to save us.
“If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” – Romans 10:13
Question: Do you believe that if you called on Jesus right now, that He would save you?
Question: If you could know that God would fully forgive you from your sins, love you forever as a son or daughter, and take you to be with him in Heaven when you die, would you want to ask him to do that now?
God, I know I need to be forgiven from my sins and saved. I believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead. Father please forgive me, save me, and make me clean. I trust you to come into my life and show me how to follow Jesus.
