“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”
– Romans 3:23
– Everyone is a sinner and is separated from God
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
– Romans 6:23
– It’s pretty simple: our sinful condition has earned us death, eternal separation from God.
– BUT, God offers us the gift of eternal life by trusting in His Son, The Lord Jesus Christ.
“ 9 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. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
“For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
– Romans 10:13
– All I need to do is believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay for my sin, that he rose again, confess to God that I am a sinner, and ask His forgiveness. Then, He keeps his promise.
