The Gospel Message
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” Genesis 1:1. “God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions” Ecclesiastes 7:29. According to the Holy Bible in Romans 3:23, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” As we find in Romans 6:23, “The wages of sin is death.” The wages (payment) for sin is to spend forever in the lake of fire “And whosoever was not found in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” Revelation 20:15.
Since everyone has sinned and deserve to spend forever in the lake of fire, how can one avoid this eternal fate? We are guilty of violating God’s ten commandments, can God forgive us? Will He forgive us? Is there any hope for us, or are we all doomed for all of eternity?
The last part of Romans 6:23 says “the gift of God is eternal life.”
Thankfully God loves us.
We have the opportunity to change what our eternity might otherwise be. God says in John 3:16-18 “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. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believeth in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
God created a perfect world, but when Satan tempted man and he sinned, from that point on, all mankind was doomed. But, because God loved His creation so much, He gave mankind the opportunity to be saved by sending His only son to die for us on the cross and to pay the penalty for our sins. Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth (revealed) His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
So how can we be saved?
What does it take? God says in John 14:6, “Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father but by me.” Acts 16:31 states “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Romans 10:9 states “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved.”
Salvation comes by believing that Jesus is your God and Savior from sin, and asking Him to save you.
God gives us this gift freely. Ephesians 2:8-9 states “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast.”
