What is God's Plan... for you.
The Scriptures says...
" I Have come in order that you might have life - Life in all its fullness."
John 10 :10
It is written for you.
"These thing I have written unto you...that you may know that you have eternal life"
1 John 5:13
God loves you and created you to know Him personally.
" For God so loved the world so much that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believe in Him may not die but have eternal life."
God wants you to know Him
Jesus said, " And eternal life means to know you, the only true God , and to know Jesus Christ, whom you sent."
The Bible says
"... the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. "
So it is not earned or deserved, no personal effort, good works, or religious deeds can earn a place in heaven for you.-
'For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourself,
it is the GIFT of God, NOT OF WORKS, lest anyone should boast."
Why is it that no one can earn his way to heaven?
Because of ...
Man is a sinner
First, you must realize you are a sinner.
Sin is transgressing God’s law and includes such things as lying, lust, cheating, deceit, evil thoughts, immoral behavior, and more.
“The heart is deceitful above all things,
And desperately wicked;"
Who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9
" For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God " Romans 3:23
Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to death.
" As it written: There is NONE righteous, NO, NOT EVEN ONE." Romans 3:10
This includes eternal separation from God in a place called Hell.
A man cannot save himself
by good deeds, do you know how good you have to be?
" Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.'
Which such a high standard, no one can save himself.
How ever, in spite of our sin...
is Merciful and Just
He is merciful and therefore doesn't want us to punish us.
because "... God is love."
1 John 4:8
and He says, "... I have love you with everlasting love..."
But the same Bible which tells us that God love us, also tell us that...
God is Just
and therefore must punish sin.
He says, "...I will be no means clear the guilty..."
"... the soul that sinned it shall die."
We have a problem and God solved this problem for us in the person of ...
Who is He?
The Bible tells us that He is infinite God - Man, The Creator
" In the beginning was the Word (Jesus)...
and the Word (Jesus) was God. And the Word (Jesus) was became flesh, and dwelt among us..."
There are many ways to describe but the greatest way is to reveal His deity
He is before all things and in Him all things consist"
In Verse 15
He is " the image of the Invisible God" (The God we can see)
In Verse 13
He is " the Son of His Love"
Jesus Christ came to earth and live with a sinless life, but while on earth...
What did He do?
He died on the cross to pay the penalty for 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 everyone to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him (Jesus) the iniquity (sin) of us all."
"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him"
2 Corinthians 5:21
Jesus Christ bore our sin in His body on the cross and now offers you eternal life (heaven) as a free gift.
This gift is received by...
- Is the key that opens the door to heaven.
Many people mistake 2 things for saving faith
1. Saving faith is not mere intellectual assent, like believing certain historical facts.The Bible says that the devil believes there is one God,
so believing that there is one God is not saving faith.
2. Saving faith is not mere temporal faith, that is trusting God for temporary crises such as financial, family, or physical needs.
Now these are good, and you should trust Christ for these, but they are not saving faith!
The True Saving faith is - trusting in Jesus Christ Alone for eternal life.
It means resting upon Christ Alone and what He has done rather than in what you or I have done to get us into heaven.
"...Believe (trust) on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved..."
Now, 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 that God is asking you know is...
Would you like to receive the gift of eternal life? because this is such an important matter...
Paul informs us exactly what is required for salvation.
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 with the heart one believe unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Simply believe Him to be the One who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected. His Resurrection powerfully assures us that we (believers) can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as our personal Savior.
Lets clarify just what it involves.
It means that you need to:
- Transfer your trust - From what you have been doing to what Christ has done for you on His cross.
- Accept Christ as your Savior - Open the door to you heart and invite Him in.
He says: "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to Him..."
14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn (180 degrees) from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.16 I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.
- Receive Jesus Christ as Lord - Give Him the "driver seat" and control of your life, not the "back seat".
- Repent - Be willing to turn from anything that is not pleasing to Him. He will reveal His will to you as you grow in your relationship with Him.
2 Chronicles 7:14-16
Now, if this is what you really want...
If you want to receive the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ,
then call on Him, asking Him for this gift right now.
Here is a suggested prayer:
" Dear God,
I acknowledge today that you are Lord and Savior of all mankind,
and today I have recognized my shortfall, I repent and turn away from all sin.
Please cover me with your precious blood, and establish your word in my life,
that I may be found in righteousness and holiness and write my name in your book of life
and be baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit
in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
If you have truly repented (forsaken, turned away) from your sins,
placed your trust in Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death,
and received the gift of eternal life
If you've said that simple prayer, and if you believe it in your heart,
I believe you are saved.
you are now a child of God and family of God.
Congratulations for praying this prayer with all your heart
You have received the greatest gift of all.
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name”
Today is your spiritual birthday—a day you will always want to remember!
The Bible speaks of those who receive eternal life in these words:
“Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God”
Look at what Jesus promises to those who believe in Him:
“. . . I say unto you, he that believes on Me has everlasting life”
Yes, the Bible says: "God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that whoever BELIEVES IN HIM shall NOT perish, but have eternal life."
Keep in Mind
DO NOT BE DECEIVED
Jesus answered them, "You are deceived, because you don't know the Scriptures or the power of God.
