Real Facts of Life
Would you like to hear some good news?
Suppose you were standing in front of God and He asked you about your personal relationship with Him with this question:
“Why should I let you in my heaven?”
What would you say?
Fact 1: God has a purpose for you
He loves you very much. He made you and wants to have a wonderful relationship with you. He wants to give you a meaningful life here and eternal life in Heaven. “The gift of God is eternal life.” according to the bible (Romans 6:23). God has offered this free gift, but it is usually unclaimed.
Fact 2: Your Problem
Some give no thought to God or eternity. Others try to get to God through religion by doing religious things to gain God’s favor. Tragically, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death” (Proverbs 14:12). But how much is enough? Actually, all fall short of God’s perfect standard. “For all have sinned” (Romans 3:23). The penalty for sin is separation from God forever in a place of unbelievable horror called Hell. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Fact 3: Jesus Christ’s Rescue
Jesus is God who became a man, living the perfect life you could never live. He did what you could not ‘d-o’, therefore Christianity is spelled ‘d-o-n-e.’ “But God demonstrated his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
Does this make sense to you?
Are you willing to turn from your sin and receive Jesus right now? This prayer can express your heart’s desire:
Dear Lord Jesus … I realize that I can’t rescue myself…
I believe that You died for me to pay the penalty for my sins…
I want to turn from my sins…
I accept Your forgiveness, Your new life,
and Your home in Heaven. Thank You, Lord.
Help me to live for You…In Your name I pray. Amen
Turning to Jesus involves receiving.
Receive His gift of forgiveness for sins, eternal life, and a new life now by believing He died for you. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
Faith is not just believing facts, but also acting on them.
