Meet Jesus

Did you know...

Did you know that the Bible tells how you can know for sure that you have eternal life and will go to be with God in Heaven? The Bible says in 1 John 5:13, “These things I have written to you… that you may know that you have eternal life.” Here’s how you can know for sure.
Heaven (Eternal Life) is a free gift. The Bible says,
“… the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23) And because Heaven is a gift, like any other genuine gift, it is not earned or deserved. Therefore, no amount of personal effort, good works, or religious deeds can earn a place in heaven for you.

The Bible also says, “By grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast.” Why is it that no one can earn his way to Heaven? Because…
Man is a sinner. The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) Sin is transgressing God’s law and includes such things as lying, lust, cheating, deceit, anger, evil thoughts, immoral behavior, and more.
And because of this, man cannot save himself. If you wanted to save yourself by good deeds, do you know how good you would have to be? The Bible says you would have to be perfect. “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in Heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48) With such a high standard, no one can save himself for God also says, “Whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.” (James 2:10) In spite of our sin, however…
God is merciful and therefore doesn’t want to punish us. This is because… “God is love…” (1 John 4:8), and He says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.” (Jeremiah 31 :3b).
But the same Bible that tells us that God loves us all also tells us that God is just, and therefore must punish sin. He says, “… I will by no means clear the guilty…” (Exodus 34:7) and “The soul who sins shall die.” (Ezekiel 18:4)
We have a problem; we have all sinned. The penalty for sin is death. Romans 6:23-For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. We need forgiveness so that we can have a right relationship with God.
God solved this problem for us in the person of Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us clearly that Jesus is the infinite God-Man. “In the beginning was the Word (Jesus) … and the Word (Jesus) was God… and the Word (Jesus) became flesh and dwelt among us…” (John 1:1, 14).
Jesus Christ came to earth and lived a sinless life, but while on earth, He died on the cross to pay the penalty of our sins and rose from the grave to purchase a place for us in Heaven. “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him (Jesus) the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6)
God hates our sin, but because of His love for us, He has placed them all on His Son. Christ bore our sin in His body on the cross. Now Jesus Christ offers you eternal life (Heaven) as a free gift. The Bible tells us in Romans 5:8- God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
 This free gift is received by faith. Saving faith is trusting in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. It means resting upon Christ alone and what He has done rather than what you have done to get in to Heaven. “Believe (trust) on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved…” (Acts 16:31).
You have just read the greatest story ever told about the greatest offer ever made by the greatest person who ever lived – Jesus Christ! The question God is asking you now is, “Would you like to receive a gift of eternal life?” IF so you must repent of your sin, in faith trust Jesus and what He has done for you in the Cross and in His resurrection. Romans 10:9-10- "If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
