Who is God?
God is the creator of mankind and He loves you.
You were created by Him and He knows everything about you.
You were made to have a relationship with God.
We were created to have a relationship with God. But that relationship was broken when we disobeyed God.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
God is perfect, we are not.
Since perfection is unobtainable for us that made God unobtainable. Sin separates us from God.
Since God is the source of life separation from Him means death.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
Jesus came to save us.
God fixed this and He sent His Son in order to pay the penalty for our sins.
Now through faith in Jesus Christ our relationship with God can be restored. Our sins can be forgiven and we can have eternal life.
I believe, but now what?
The forgiveness of sins is not by works, it is a free gift based on what Jesus did for us.
We receive His forgiveness by placing our faith and trust in Him.
“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.” Romans 10:9
We communicate with God through prayer. If you believe this in your heart pray this prayer:
“Father I am a sinner. Jesus you are Lord and my Savior.
Please forgive of my sins.
I ask you into my heart that you would make me a new person.
I ask this in the name of Jesus, Amen.”
Did you pray this prayer?
