Have you ever thought:
I’m a good person so I’ll go to heaven?
Or, I’m saved because I go to church?
Do you know that isn’t what it takes to get into heaven?
Do you know what is required to enter heaven?
It’s a choice! Every choice, whether good or bad – leads to consequences.
Some choices are simple: like deciding to get up or hit the snooze button when your alarm goes off in the morning.
But others can be the difference between life and death. Like the choice I made to drive drunk.
But the most important choice we will ever make in life is whether or not we will choose Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
God made us a wonderful offer. He arranged for the penalty & punishment of sin to be paid for everyone that believes in him.
He sent his only son, Jesus - to give his life for the penalty of our sin.
Your father in heaven loves you. NO matter what you’ve done, no matter what you’re doing right now. You can’t out sin God’s grace. "While we were YET sinners Christ died for us." Please don’t wait until your perfect or doing everything right before you invite Jesus in, that time of perfection will never come.
It’s really so simple, all we have to do is "confess with our mouth & believe in our hearts" to invite Jesus into our lives, then talk to him, God has a good plan for YOUR life.
Father God I love you, Jesus I believe in you & I need you. I believe you died on the cross for me & are now alive in Heaven. I know that I’m a sinner. I ask you to forgive me. YOU have paid for my sins Jesus & I receive you into my life, take me just the way I am & help me become what you created me to be. I believe my sins have been forgiven & I believe I’ve been saved. Thank You Lord, In Jesus Name, Amen
