Salvation through Jesus
God wants a relationship with us. He loves us, but the sin in our lives separates us from Him because He’s perfectly holy. Romans 6:23 explains that “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” This means there’s nothing we can do in our own power to pay for our sin. Without redemption, we face eternal separation from God. So He sent his Son Jesus to pay that penalty through the only acceptable sacrifice: His shed blood on the cross at Calvary. This is God’s gift to us—a gift we don’t deserve but can freely receive today.
Today’s the Day
We believe there is no greater moment in life than when you personally decide to follow Jesus. To receive His gift of forgiveness, you simply need to ask for it. Why not do this right now?
- Tell God you know you have sinned.
- Tell Him you no longer want to live a life separated from Him.
- Believe that Jesus paid the penalty in full for your sin.
- Ask for His forgiveness and accept the grace He’s shown you.
When you make the decision to accept Christ as your Savior, your life changes. Colossians 1:14, says you receive forgiveness for all of your sins—regardless of how big you may feel they are. Romans 8:1 provides assurance that “there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Your slate is wiped clean. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “…anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” Your future is transformed. Although you will still face earthly challenges, you receive eternal life. John 5:24 explains that you will spend eternity in heaven with God and your new family of believers.
