For God so loved the world, he gave his only Son
To die upon the tree, from sin to set me free
Some day He’s coming back, what glory that will be
Wonderful His love to me.
Alfred B. Smith (1916-2001) an Frances Townsend
The above chorus is found in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”.
Jesus said…“I am the way, the truth and life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GOD THE FATHER
“God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son”. 1 John 5:11
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”. Romans 6:23
FIND YOUR WAY TO GOD
- Admit you are a sinner: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. Romans 3:23
- You are not the first. It goes as far back as Adam and Eve.
- Come to God through Jesus Christ: “For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus”. 1 Timothy 2:5
- This is why Jesus came to earth. He is the ultimate link with God the Father.
- Confess your sins to Jesus: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins”. 1 John 1:9
- Jesus already knows our sins. He just wants us to stand up and own them to Him directly and ask for forgiveness.
JESUS GAVE HIS LIFE TO SAVE US
Jesus was nailed to a wooden cross because cruel people hated Him.
But His death was God’s plan. Jesus laid down His life to save you and me from our sins.
NO OTHER SACRIFICE CAN TAKE AWAY SIN
“We have been sanctified [made holy] through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all”. Hebrews 10:10
CHRIST AROSE FROM THE DEAD
“Knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead dies no more. Death no longer has dominion [rule] over Him”. Romans 6:9
HEAVEN and HELL ARE REAL PLACES. Make sure you are trusting in Jesus Christ, He will put your name in His Book of Life. “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying; and there shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new’.” Revelation 21:4-5 “…anyone not found written in the Book of Life is cast into the lake of fire”. Revelation 20:15
JESUS HAS GONE TO PREPARE A HOME FOR ALL WHO BELIEVE IN HIM
JESUS said :“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you many be also”. John 14:1-3
JESUS said: “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, will come in to him and dine with him and he with Me”. Revelation 3:20
THE DOOR IS YOUR HEART. JESUS LOVES YOU AND WANTS YOU TO INVITE HIM IN. WON’T YOU WELCOME HIM
Have you any room for Jesus, He who bore your load of sin?
As he knocks and asks admission Sinner, will you let him in?
Room for Jesus, King of Glory! Hasten now, his word obey!
Swing your hearts’s door widely open, Bid him enter while you may.
Daniel Webster Whittle (1840-1901)
Get started by simply talking to God:
“Oh God, I am a sinner. I’m sorry for my sin. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son; I believe He died for my sin and that You raised Him to life. I choose to trust Him as my Saviour and follow Him as my Lord this day forward. I put my trust in You and surrender my life to You. Please come into my life and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. In Jesus name. Amen”
