And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life
Jesus (JohN 6:40)
I declare to you the Gospel, which you also received and in which you stand,
by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you…
That Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried
and that He rose again the thrid day according to the Scriptures.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4
The Gospel = God’s Good News of Salvation by His grace
(His free gift to you!)
- Jesus loves you and has a plan for your life.
- You have sinned and fall short of God’s standard for heaven (His glory, or perfection).
- Jesus died for you to save you and forgive you, even when we are rebellious and in sin.
The Bible tells us that “God commands all men everywhere to repent”!
Repent ‘metanoia’ means to “change your mind” which will then bring about a change of heart – turning away from sin and self and a change of direction with an open heart toward God.
What we need to do is to
Confess our sins, and believe from the heart that Jesus rose again – and ask Him to forgive us and cleanse us from all our sin.
Jesus promises us, that “anyone who comes to Me, I will by no means cast out” and “he who believes in Me, though he die, he will live…and he who lives and believes in Me shall never die”
What a great promise.
Dont wait another day, the Bible says “Today is the day of salvation”!
2 Corinthians 6:2
