Whether you realize it or not, YOU are an eternal being... While you can only see your transport vehicle, (your body), you're actually a spirit which will exist forever and your identity, (your soul), consists in your mind, will and emotions.
ALL of these were created by the same immortal being who created everything... God. You were made for ONE reason... To grasp that you were made BY HIM!
Your entire Earthly existence boils down to a simple "dash" centered between two dates. You've been given this brief opportunity to make a single choice... To spend eternity WITH Him or SEPARATED from Him.
He's provided a very simple means whereby you can remain in His presence forever... To believe that He robed Himself in flesh to offer His life to atone for the darkness, (SIN), that is resident in ALL humankind.
This is His complete explanation of the matter...
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.
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
So, what do you do with this information? It's incredibly simple... First, understand that there's NOTHING you can do to earn this amazing gift! (It's ONLY by His mercy that you're even reading this!) A lot of folks honestly believe that they're pretty good people and THAT will be sufficient for them to get to Heaven. Many others simply deny that everything I've said is real. They see this entire concept as delusional. More is the pity.
I can assure you that IF you proceed with what follows, you'll KNOW that everything I've told you is absolutely true. You'll be able to experience for yourself the wonder of being in His embrace.
As I said before, this is a very simple process... All you have to do is TALK to Him. (By the way... His Hebrew name is Yeshua, but you can call Him Jesus.) Take a tiny step of faith and ask Him for forgiveness for your sins and ask Him to lead you along the path He's made for you. Believe it or not... it's THAT easy! ONE SIMPLE PRAYER and TA DA... You're a child of the Almighty!
PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTINUING...
While many would be content with offering
you the basic plan of Salvation, I can't in
good conscience tell you that if accept Jesus
as your Savior everything in your life will be
"hunky dory"... In fact you can most likely
expect the opposite. The Bible says that Satan
comes immediately to steal the word which was
sown in your heart. How this manifests in your
situation is completely unknowable. I CAN make
you this promise... Jesus will bring you through
whatever the enemy throws in your path. I can
also promise you that IF you'll not only allow
Jesus to be your Savior, but the Lord of your
life, you can expect to walk in the miraculous.
You'll walk in His absolute provision and blessings,
as well as basking in His peace and marvelous
If you'd like to understand what lies ahead for you
and perhaps count the cost of this vital decision,
I'd suggest that you read the 4th chapter of the
gospel of Mark. This would be an excellent starting
place for you in your quest for the truth.
