The Lord Jesus Christ paid the full price for the salvation of your soul. He “gave himself for our sins,” (Galatians 1:4a) Jesus, the Son of God, “loved me, and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20b) Now because “by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” there remains no price for us to pay! (Hebrews 9:12b) We are “justified freely by his grace.” (Romans 3:24a) “It is finished:” (John 19:30b)
DOING GOOD WORKS CANNOT SAVE YOU
Salvation is “Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:9) God “hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,” (II Timothy 1:9b)
The Bible, God’s Word, says, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” (Romans 3:10) “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23) Sin is the problem, and even belonging to a church will not take it away. Jesus Christ Himself said, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3b) As the Bible says, “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.” (Romans 3:28) “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” (Ephesians 2:8)
YOU CANNOT TAKE YOUR CHANCES
The Bible says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” (Hebrews 9:27) You really don’t know for sure how much time is left of your life. “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” (James 4:14)
YOU CANNOT SAVE YOURSELF
The Bible says, “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law,” (Galatians 2:16a) It also says, “we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;” (Isaiah 64:6a)
SALVATION IS FREE TO ALL
The Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13) The Bible says, “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;” (1 Timothy 1:15b) “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God,” (I Peter 3:18a)
IF YOU DO NOT GET SAVED…
The Bible says, “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night,” (Revelation 14:11a). “For the wages of sin is death;” (Romans 6:23a) This death is more than just physical death. It is an “eternal burning!” The Bible says, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8)
HOW YOU CAN BE SAVED
The Bible calls for “repentance toward God,” (Acts 20:21b) Repentance is a change of heart which causes you to turn toward God and away from your present way of life. Accept the Bible facts that you are guilty as a sinner before Him, and you are unable to deliver yourself from the punishment of hell, which is due you because of your sin.
The Bible also calls for “faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Acts 20:21b) Faith is putting complete trust in Jesus Christ as your only means of clearing your guilt and delivering your soul from the punishment of hell. The Bible says,
“…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved,” (Acts 16:31a) If you will receive Jesus Christ into your heart, by trusting Him to save your soul, you will become a son of God and spend eternity in heaven. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” (John 1:12) God promises He will save you if you will trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour. “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) Please accept the “free gift” of eternal life God is offering you.
If you will accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, please pray with all your heart: Dear God, be merciful to me a sinner. I am sorry for my sins, and now trust the Lord Jesus Christ to save me. I now take Him as my Lord and Saviour. I ask for eternal life that He paid for with His own blood. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
