IF YOU’VE NEVER MET JESUS…
…a good place to start is John 3:16. “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
To believe in Jesus, please consider the following:
The Bible says we are all sinners (Romans 3:10)
The penalty for that sin is death (Romans 3:23: For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.)
The three types of death referred to here are physical death, spiritual death (separation from God, a condition in which all who reject Christ find themselves, even while physically living), and eternal death (separation from God for eternity, or hell).
All people will eventually experience physical death, but God does not want you and I to be separated from Him in this life or eternally.
Let’s go back to John 3:16, which says, God gave His son, Jesus Christ, to die for your and my sin. (Romans 5:8…God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Have you believed that Christ died for you? I Peter 2:6… He who believes in Him shall not be disappointed. John 8:24 (Jesus said) …unless you believe that I am He, you shall die in your sins. John 8:36 If therefore the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.
Once you’ve allowed Jesus into your life, consider that He made you to follow His principles (Matt 7:24-25).
