The Gospel of Jesus Christ

We can start in Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

This shows us that we are all sinners. That there is none righteous no not one as seen in Romans 3: 10 – 12 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one."

Now there is a punishment for the evil that we do in our lives, for sin, and this is death.

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

But this is only the first death as there is a second death, the death of the soul.

Revelation 20:14 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.”

But God loves us and He doesn’t want us to suffer in hell.

2 Peter 3: 9 “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

If He says that He loves us, then He is not lying and must have done something for us so that none of us should perish.

Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his life toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

So Christ who is God was born on this earth, He lived a perfect sinless life, He was nailed to the cross and bare all our sins in his body. His soul then descended into hell for three days and three nights, after which He rose again conquering death.

This means that every sin that I have ever done, every sin that you have ever done has been paid for by God suffering on the cross.

Do you believe that Christ died for you?

He did He died for the whole world.

1 John 2: 1 – 2 “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”

So, it is important to know what determines people going to heaven or hell.

Acts 16:30 “And brought them out and said sirs, what must I do to be saved. And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

There is no work on your part, Jesus did all the work, you just have to believe in who He was and what He did for us.

Salvation is also seen in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Believing in Christ means putting your faith on Him to get you to heaven and not in your own works. As salvation is free, it is the gift of God. Once it is given it can not be taken away, otherwise it would not be a gift, the giver pays for the gift and Christ did this by suffering on the cross.

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

1 John 5:11 “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.”

We know we cannot lose our salvation as Christ said in Hebrews 13: 5 “for he hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.”

God gave it to us, it belongs to us, and He isn’t going to take it away for any reason. You can’t lose you salvation for any reason as it would make God to be a liar, lying is a sin and God cannot sin.

Titus 1:2 “In hope of eternal life which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began.”

The blood of Jesus Christ that was shed on the cross it is the only way to salvation it is not of works. That means going to church, doing good things, turning away from sin, being baptised, confessing sins to a priest, or paying money to a church is not going to get you to heaven.

Ephesians 2: 8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

So, do you believe you have sinned? Yes, I have ,we all have.

Do you believe Christ died on the cross for you? He did, he died for everyone.

Do you believe that He rose from the dead? Yes, he did.

According to the Bible if you asked Jesus to save you right now would He do it? Yes, he will.

And how long would you be saved for? You would be saved for eternity, God never abandons us no matter how often we fail Him.

Could you lose it for any reason, even if you did something terrible? You cannot lose your salvation, it is eternal.

Here is a prayer you can pray if you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and put your faith in Him to get you to heaven.

Dear Jesus, I know I’m a sinner, I know I deserve to go to hell, but I believe you died on the cross for me, and rose again, please save me right now, and give me eternal life, I’m only trusting you Jesus, Amen.

Now you meant that right?

That is it, that’s all the Bible says you have to do to be saved.
