1. You are a sinner
The Bible tells us that we are all sinners. Romans 3:10 states, "There
is none righteous, no not one." This means that no one is righteous, or
completely without sin. Romans 3:23 goes on to say, "For all have sinned,
and come short of the glory of God." Sin is disobedience to God.
Because we have all sinned, we fall short of God's standards of righteousness.
2. God's penalty for sin is death
Sin carries with it a tragic penalty. Romans 6:23a says, "For the wages
of sin is death....." This does not mean just physical death, but eternal
separation from God: spiritual death. Romans 5:12 says, "Wherefore as by
one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed
upon all men, for that all have sinned:" God requires that man be punished
for his sin with eternal death.
The Bible explains that eternal spiritual death is punishment in a lake of
fire called Hell. There is no pardon or parole for sin. Revelation
20:14,15 states, "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This
is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of
life was cast into the lake of fire.:
3. Jesus died to save sinners
While we cannot save ourselves from spiritual death in Hell, Jesus has died
to save us from this penalty of sin. Romans 5:8 tells us that "God
commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died
for us." Jesus died for us, even though we were sinners, so that we could
be saved from the penalty of sin. Now, because of Jesus' death, we have
eternal life available us us. Romans 6:23, the verse we looked at earlier,
goes on to say: "but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our
Lord." We cannot earn eternal life, and we do not deserve it, but God has
made eternal life available to us because of Jesus' death on the cross.
Now anyone who wants to go to Heaven can do so!!
4. You can be saved by accepting Jesus' sacrifice for you!
Jesus died for the sins of the whole world. That means He died for you.
If you will agree with God that you are a sinner in need of salvation, and
accept Jesus' death as the payment for your sin, you can be saved today!
Romans 10:13 tells us, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall
If you believe that you are a sinner, and you believe that Jesus died for
your sins, you can be saved. Right now, where you are, you can accept
