Eternal Life

 
Becoming a Christian is not about becoming religious. Rather, it's about coming into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
 
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. He took on human flesh without ever ceasing to be God. Jesus the man was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men. The Bible teaches that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption by shedding His blood and dying on the cross, making eternal life in heaven possible for anyone who places their faith in Him.
 
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins. - Colossian 1:14
 
We must know that all have Sinned
 
For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.. - Ecclesiastes 7:20
 
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23
 
We must know that the penalty of sin is eternal death, but God offers a way out
 
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. - Romans 6:23 
 
We must know that our good deeds or works can never earn, pay, or merit our way to heaven
 
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us... - Titus 3:5 
 
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. - Ephesians 2:8,9
 
We must trust that Jesus paid for our sins
 
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8
 
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. - I Peter 2:24
 
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: - I Peter 3:18
 
We must receive Jesus' offer of forgivenss by simply asking for it by faith
 
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
 
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. - John 3:36
 
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. - Romans 10:13
 
Do not let another day go by. Take a moment and ask Jesus to be your Savior. You can pray something like this:
 
Dear Lord, I know I am a sinner and I believe that You died on the cross and rose from the grave to pay for my sins. I know that I can do nothing to save myself, and I am placing my trust in Jesus Christ alone for my salvation. I ask You to forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. Thank you for saving me today, Amen.
