The Most Important Thing In Life
- Heaven is a free gift. You cannot earn it, and you will never deserve it.
Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal
life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Ephesians 2:8-9 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith --
and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works, so that
no-one can boast."
- You are a sinner and cannot save yourself.
Romans 3:23 "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,"
James 2:10 "For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just
one point is guilty of breaking all of it."
- God is merciful - He loves us - but, He is just - He must punish sin.
Jeremiah 31:3 "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn
you with loving-kindness."
Ezekiel 18:4 "The soul who sins is the one who will die."
- Jesus is God in the flesh, and HE came to earth to die for our sins and
John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God."
John 1:14 "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. . ."
Isaiah 53: 6 "We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned
to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all."
- It is faith that saves us - that is, believing in Him and trusting Christ
alone for salvation - nothing else.
Ephesians 2:8 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith --
and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--"
Acts 16:31 "They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be
saved -- you and your household."
It’s that simple. Just put your life in His hands, follow Him every day, and
watch how He will change your life. Personally, I made that decision in
1973, and I have never been the same. My life is a miracle of God. The
change has been drastic.
