Grace: Heaven Is A Free Gift 

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23


We can't earn our way to heaven, and none of us deserves to go. It is a gift.

 

Man: We Are All Sinners

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23


Every person who has ever lived has missed God's standard of perfection.

 

God: He Loves Us

"God is love." 1 John 4:8


While God loves us and doesn't want to punish us, we should also know that, as a just God, He must punish sin. "the soul that sinneth, it shall die." Ezekiel 18:4

 

Christ: God Balanced Justice and Love Through His Son Jesus

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16


Jesus is the infinite God-man, God in the flesh. He died on the cross and rose from the dead to pay the penalty for our sins and to purchase a place for us in heaven, which He offers as a free gift.

 

Faith: The Gift of Eternal Life Is Received by Faith

Saving faith is not merely intellectual assent. It is trusting in Jesus Christ alone and what He has done rather than what we can do to get ourselves to heaven. "What must I do to be saved? ... Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved." Acts 16:30b, 31


The Bible says, "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." You can do that now by simply praying:

 

Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and do not deserve eternal life. But I believe You died and rose from the grave to purchase a place in heaven for me. Jesus, come into my life, take control of my life, forgive my sins and save me. I am now placing my trust in You alone for my salvation, and I accept Your free gift of eternal life.

 

If this prayer is the sincere desire of your heart, look at the promise of Jesus: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me hath everlasting life." John 6:47

 

If you having read this, trusted Jesus for eternal life, please let us know. We want to rejoice in what God has done in your life and help you to grow spiritually. Please call us at 770-917-9100 or e-mail us .
