A Free Gift

john 3_16

A Free Gift From God:
Salvation is a free gift from God. It is His desire that everyone spends eternity in Heaven.
However, just as you have the choice to accept or refuse a gift from someone you love,
it is your choice to refuse or accept the gift of salvation.
Ask yourself –
Where will you spend eternity when you die? God said in His Word, the Bible:
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
What is sin?
Anything that is not right in God’s sight is sin.
“All unrighteousness is sin.” I John 5:17
“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” James 4:17
Who has sinned?
Every person who has ever lived has sinned.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
“There is non righteous, no not one.” Romans 3:10
What is the punishment for sin?
Death means separation from God forever in Hell.
“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”
Romans 6:23
“And whosoever was not found in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” Rev 20:15
How do I know God loves me?
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
You can put your name in place of “the world” and “whosoever”. God loved you so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for you.
How is sin taken away?
Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment for all of your sin, past present and future. He was buried, but rose again the 3rd day, and He is a living Savior.
“The blood of Jesus Christ his(God’s) Son cleanseth us from all sin” I John 1:7
“That if thou shalt 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 whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:9, 13
How can I become God’s child?
You become God’s child by believing what the Bible says about your sin and what it says about Jesus taking the punishment for your sin. Eternal Life as God’s child is God’s free gift when you believe.
“But as many as received Him (Jesus), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” John 1:12
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” Acts 16:31
How can I know that I have eternal life?
God promises eternal life to those who believe. GOD CANNOT LIE! Titus 1:2
“These things I have written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life” I John 5:13
Just a simple prayer:
Dear Lord, I know I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus died on the cross and took the punishment for all my sins. I believe that He was buried and rose again. Now I ask You to forgive me of my sins, and I ask Jesus to be my Savior. In Jesus’ name, AMEN
