The Bible says that the wages of sin is death (written in Romans 6:23), and since every person has sinned that means we all owe our very lives.
That’s why Jesus Christ the Son of God came, died on the cross, and rose from the dead.
He took our death for us, paying our debt for sin so that anyone who believes in His name can be forgiven and have eternal life.
He did that because of His great love for you and me!
The Bible (which is the Word of God) says:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 NIV)
The decision to accept or decline Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior will affect you for eternity.
You see, the “death” the Bible refers to is an eternal death that will happen to every person who does not have their sins forgiven.
Apart from having a relationship with Jesus, no person will be forgiven for sin. That’s because Jesus is the One who paid the debt for us by sacrificing His own life, so it is only through Him that we can be saved.
If you would like to make Jesus Christ The Lord and Savior of your life, you can begin by saying the following prayer out loud:
I believe you died and rose.
I confess with my mouth without anyone forcing me, that I am saved.
Remove my name from the book of death, and write my name in the book of life.
After we accept Jesus as the Lord and Savior of our life, it’s important to maintain a relationship with Him by praying to Him daily, fasting, and reading and obeying the Bible.
