Have you connected with Jesus? peacewithGod.net
If not it is so simple. We are not talking about joining our church or a religion, but starting a relationship with Him. Paul tells the Roman church that we have all sinned & fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23), but the writer John says that if we confess our sins, He is faithful & just to forgive us of our sins (I John 1:9).
We have all messed up. None of us is perfect. We may think that we are living a ‘good’ life or that we have not committed major sins. Have you lied? Have you ever stolen anything (even a small piece of gum)? Have you ever lusted after the opposite sex in your heart? Have you taken the Lord’s name in vain? These are examples from the 10 commandments found in Exodus 20:1-17, and we have all broken them. God is a righteous judge & because of our transgressions of His commandments we deserve punishment. Jesus Christ came to earth & paid our punishment once & for all for our ‘sins’. He took our place….He took our punishment. That is what John 3:16 is all about.
So what do you do? It’s as simple as A-B-C
- A = Ask Jesus into your life (John 1:12, Ephesians 3:17, Collasians 3:15, 1 Peter 3:15, Revelation 3:20)
- B = Believe in Jesus Christ & that He died for you, & God raised Him from the dead (Romans 10:9)
- C = Confess that you are a sinner, repent (turn away from wrongdoing), & confess Him to be your Lord (I John 1:9, Romans 14:8-9)
The Apostle Paul says in the Book of Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
It’s that simple. Please contact us & let us know if you did that today because it is important that you confess Jesus is Lord vocally. Starting a personal relationship with Jesus will be the most important thing that you have ever done in your life!!!
