For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John 3:17-21 (KJV)
This verse explains why you need the Lord Jesus Christ. God sent His Son into the world to save it. Read each verse, one at a time, thinking on each one. god sent His Son to save you. If you do not believe in Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you are already condemned, because of your sins, which we will explain shortly. Jesus Christ is the way out. If you do not accept Him, you have no way to avoid the penalty, which is eternity in Hell.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV)
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12 (KJV)
These verses explain what is the need for Jesus Christ our Lord. The fact is there is no other way to be saved. Allah cannot save, the Mormon Jesus (not the same Jesus as the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible…) cannot save, Bahu’Allah cannot save, the BAB cannot save, the Reverend Sun Myung Moon is dead and cannot save you let alone himself, Buddah cannot save, Bodhidharma cannot save, Confucious, the Tao, the Pope… none of these can save.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23 (KJV)
Your sins separate you from a Holy God. God is so holy He cannot look upon sin, nor can sin dwell in Heaven.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 (KJV)
Re-read the verse above, but substitute the word “Hell” in your mind for “Death” when you read it. This is what the Bible teaches over and over again. The wage you have earned by sinful actions is an eternity in Hell, and the Lake of Fire after the Great White Throne judgment.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. Eph 2:8-9 (KJV)
You cannot earn your own salvation. How can you? Your sins separate you from God. Without any way to remove your sins, you will remain a sinner after your death, no matter how many good deeds you do. Because of those sins, you cannot stand in the presence of a Holy God.
“That’s not fair!” you may say. But God sees it differently. He is complete Holiness and purity, and cannot tolerate sin.
“But I believe God is a loving God! He won’t let me go to Hell!” Yes, you’re right! He is a loving God, and He provides a very simple way to be saved!
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (KJV)
See? You were right. God does not want you to go to Hell forever. He wants you to go to Heaven, with Him! He made it so simple, a free gift. All you have to do is accept it. What could be simpler? NOTHING!
“So what do I have to do?”
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; Acts 3:19 (KJV)
*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. Romans 10:9 (KJV)
That’s ALL. Repent, and believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible commands us to call upon the Name of the Lord to be saved. That’s it. takes you all of five seconds. Just pray right now, out loud in your own words, confessing to God you are a sinner, that you repent of your sins, and ask the Lord Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Saviour.
“I don’t like that.”
I don’t understand how you could not! It’s free. All done. You don’t have to do anything, not one single thing, to get your salvation. It’s DONE.
“Yes, but it’s the Jesus thing…”
That’s because the one who has the allegiance of your life without your knowing it is condemned forever in the Lake of Fire, and he knows it. So he hates you so much that he wants you to suffer in a punishment that wasn’t meant for you, along with him. Misery loves company.
“Well, i believe that I can save myself, by doing good.”
That’s nice, but we’ve already demonstrated that:
All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God
your sins separate you from God, and you have no way to remove them
you cannot go to heaven while still in your sins, without the sins removed and the penalty paid for your sins.
Jesus paid that penalty. Free gift – all you have to do is receive it.
This is your choice. Accept Jesus Christ and a free gift of salvation. Reject Him, and pay for it for all eternity in unending torment in the Lake of Fire.
What’s your decision?
If your decision is yes, please pray right now. don’t put it off – you have no guarantee of another minute of life. go back to here.
if your decision is no, I want to make sure I’ve explained the Gospel correctly to you. According to the Bible, if you do not repent and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, where will you go when you die?
Exactly, Have a nice day.
