Jesus Christ is the Eternal Net Service Provider. He alone can save and assure you of eternity to come. Don't be fooled by false imitations in this life or on the WWW promising you the sun and stars. The following words are of life and death. Take the time to read them ... your eternity depends on it!
It is a common note among humans ... all are looking for love. That's because each person is created in the image of God. God is love! The problem is you are looking for love in all the wrong places. People look for love in relationships, possessions, emotions and many other means. None of these satisfy the desire for love. God's love is the purest love one will ever experience. His love satisfies the soul. God loves You!
"Whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 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. For God did not sent His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."
The world says "God loves me just as I am." God does love you, but He doesn't want you to stay as you are. "As you are" means you remain your in sin. You may ask, "Why am I a sinner?" Sin entered the world through the first man called Adam. His wilful sin against God set into motion a sin nature that is born into everyone. Therefore your sin separates you from God. God desires your fellowship. That is why he allowed His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for you ... to restore fellowship with Him. Now that is love!
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned;
But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
"Why did Jesus have to die for me?" you might ask. Because you are a sinner separated from God. His death provides the "Way" for you to return to God. Through the death of Jesus Christ God offers you the gift of salvation. This gift is free with no strings attached (attached strings are called works and you cannot earn this gift!). Christ dying for you is the greatest love you will ever know and salvation is the greatest gift you will ever receive!
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 5:6-8 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
The plan of salvation is quite simple
... that's the way God designed it! In order to receive God's free gift
of salvation you simply confess and believe. Confess what? Confess you
are a sinner and that you cannot save yourself from hell. Believe what?
That only God through Jesus Christ can save you in order for you to have
fellowship with Him and from hell itself (eternal separation from God ..
eternal punishment). Can you drop your pride and confess and believe in
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
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 to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.
Acts 4:12 "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
To believe you are saved says you "trust" God and His Word. He promises that if you will call upon Him in confession and belief . . . you will be saved! Believe it for God says it is so.
Romans 10:13 For "whoever calls upon the name of the LORD shall be saved."
John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name:
If you desire God's gift of salvation pray asking God for it. Here is a simple but powerful prayer.
"Dear God, I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that I need You. I cannot save myself. Forgive me of my sins and cleanse me from them. I now reach out by faith to confess and believe in Jesus Christ Your Son, my Savior to receive Your free gift of salvation. I ask in Jesus Name, Amen."
If you prayed that prayer from your heart you are saved through Jesus Christ and are now a child of God! Rejoice! For all of heaven rejoices in your decision! Welcome to the "Family of God".
What is a Lord? A Lord is one who rules over your life. Jesus Christ is your Lord. He says that His yoke is not burdensome but easy, for He is walking beside you. Begin today to allow Jesus to be Lord over all areas of your life.
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
Believer's baptism is important because Jesus gave the command to His disciples to baptize those who believe in Him. We are to observe all the commands of Christ. So baptism is the first act of obedience to Christ that you should do.
Believer's baptism does not save you . . . It is an act of obedience to Christ . . . It symbolizes your death, burial and resurrection to new life in Christ, as it does Christ's death, burial and resurrection for you (see: Romans 6:3-11). When you find a church family, ask to be baptized in obedience to Christ.
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
Now that you are saved and a child of God perhaps you are thinking "What should I do now?" You don't need a big long list of do's and dont's. Don't get trapped in legalism. God through His Holy Spirit will begin to work in your life through conviction of sin, guidance, and illumination through the Word of God. So ask Him, "God what do you want me to do?"
