A Relationship with Jesus Christ
"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
For God so loved the world…
God created our universe and all that is in it, including us. However he created us in his image and proclaimed us to be "very good" (Genesis 1:31).
God loves you and me deeply. The Bible is a love story between God and the people he created and chose.
…he gave his one and only Son…
Thinking that we know best, we have turned away from God's direction and protection and we live according to what we think is best for our lives. This rebellion and separation is defined by the Bible as 'sin'.
Romans 3:23 says, "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God".
The wages of this sin is death and therefore, God, in his great love "he gave his one and only Son". God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin.
…that whoever believes in him…
It doesn't matter who you are or what you have done, ANYONE who believes that Jesus sacrificed his life, is made right with God (Romans 3:25).
"If you [anyone] confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9)
…shall not perish but have eternal life.
When we turn back to God and place our faith in Jesus Christ, we have the hope and promise of eternal life! Life forever with your Creator!
Our prayer is that you would discover the author of love... Jesus. His life and death represent the greatest gift of love the world will ever see... a gift for you. All you need to do is accept it... a brand new start to a life lived in relationship with God. Meeting God is as simple as praying a prayer... asking Jesus to meet you right where you are. If you are not sure that you know God, and that you are going to heaven, then make this your prayer today...
