How to Have Eternal Life

God loves you and offers you a wonderful life.

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

BUT, we are separated from God because of our sin (going our own way).

Romans 3:2 …for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,…

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

The good news is that God has provided a way for us to know Him through Jesus Christ, God’s only Son. God actually made Him, Jesus Christ, who knew no sin, to be our sin so that we might have a right relationship with God. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. He took the punishment for us and in our place!

We must individually receive Jesus Christ as our personal Savior and Lord. Jesus said we must be born again. (John 3:1-8)

Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works,…

It requires little faith.

Romans 10:9-10, 13 …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… For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Hebrews 11:1, 6 But without faith it is impossible to walk with God and please Him, for whoever comes to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly and diligently seek Him.

When you received Christ ALL your sins were forgiven! You received Eternal Life and became a child of God.

John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:…

We can be sure of our new relationship with Jesus Christ!

1 John 5:13 I write these things to you who believe in the Name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

Hebrews 13:5 Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you…

Here’s a sample prayer you can pray from your heart directly to God…

Dear Jesus, I know that I’m a sinner and I need Your forgiveness for going my own way. I believe that you shed Your blood and died on the cross for me and I believe that you rose from the grave victorious over death! I invite You to come into my life as my personal Savior. Take away my sin and be the Lord of my life. Fill me with your Holy Spirit so that I can serve you with my whole heart! Thank You for giving me eternal life! Amen
