RECEIVING ETERNAL LIFE IS AS SIMPLE AS

A – B – C

First of all you need to 

ADMIT that…

  • God loves YOU. He loved you so much that He sent His very own Son to pay the price on the cross for your sin. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
  • Christ died for YOU  and all people. “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8b)
  • Everyone sins. No exceptions! And “when people sin they fall short of the glory of God.”  (Romans 3:23)
  • Sin separates YOU from God.  “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

BELIEVE that…

  • Jesus Christ is the ONLY answer and way to eternal life. Therefore place YOUR “faith” and “trust” in Him.  The Bible says that believing that Jesus is God’s Son is the first step toward faith. “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” (Acts 16:31)

CONFESS…

  • To God that YOU are a sinner. Ask God to forgive you and allow you to live in eternity with Him. “Because is we truly confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
  • Do NOT just say YOU are sorry, truly repent and ask God to help YOU change YOUR ways.  Ask God to help you stop doing what you shouldn’t do, turn from your sins and start doing what He wants you to do. “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” (Acts 3:19) 

COMMIT… 

  • To giving your life to Jesus Christ and ask Him to be Savior and Lord of your life“if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)

Then…

  • Tell others about YOUR faith in Jesus.  Share with others what Jesus has done for you and how He has changed your life. “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)
  • Live in a way that pleases God.  God wants us to follow His guidelines for living. By living a life pleasing to Him, this will be a testimony to your new life in Him. Jesus said: “If you love me, keep my commands.” (John 14:15)    
  • Take the next step of obedience through “baptism. Jesus Himself, was baptized in the River Jordan by John the Baptist and He ask us that we follow His example. (Matthew 3:13-17)       
  • Once YOU have been “baptized”, be sure to grow through fellowship and worship with other true believers.  (Hebrews 10:23-25)

A STEP OF FAITH

F – A – I – T – H 

ForgivenessEveryone has sinned and needs God’s forgiveness. “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) 

AvailableGod’s forgiveness is available to all. “God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) 

ImpossibleAccording to the Bible, it is impossible to get to heaven on our own. “By grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift-not from works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9) 

Turn – If you were going down the road and someone asked you to turn, what would that person be asking you to do? (Change direction?) – Turn means repent.

Turn away from sin and self“Unless you repent, you will all perish as well!(Luke 13:3)

Turn to Jesus alone as your Savior and Lord“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6) 

HeavenIs the place where we will live with God forever if we are willing to repent of our sins and confess Christ as our Lord and Savior. “If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also.” (John 14:3)
