I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for your sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
God created you.
God loves you more than you can imagine.
God designed you to know him and enjoy a relationship with him.
At one point in your life, you started to sin against God (by not obeying his principles and commandments).
Sin caused (and still causes) you to feel things like being sad, alone, troubled, frustrated, regretful, hollow, and guilty. Shame, confusion, grief and terror are not far behind. By the way, that’s not so much your conscience giving you trouble as it is the Holy Spirit getting your attention by convicting you of your sin.
The results of your sin are such that you aren't enjoying God nor do you have a personal relationship with him. In a sense, you're living with a void in your life. A brilliant 17th century French theologian (and mathematician) once described your condition this way:
“There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.” Blaise Pascal
The reality is that you are trapped in a life of sin that you can’t get out of. Even though you have tried to do a lot of good to make up for the sin in your life, deep down you realize that you don’t have inner peace, clear direction, or true purpose. When you think about it, your life is not what you want it to be or know it could (or should) be.
Even worse (yes, that’s possible), the ultimate consequence of your sin is death… and then an eternity in hell.
God loves you so much that he sent his Son Jesus Christ to save you by his death, burial, and resurrection. You can have forgiveness of your sins. There’s hope!
While others may tell you there are “many ways to the top of the mountain,” there is in truth only one way to experience forgiveness of sins, one way to find peace with God, and one way to heaven. The one way? Only through Jesus Christ.
Though forgiveness of sins and salvation is a free gift of God, you still need to play an active role in the process by receiving this free gift. To do that, you need to accept God’s love and grace by repenting of your sins and believing in Jesus Christ. This is in fact the defining and decisive moment of your life – a true game changer. Why wait? You can go to God in prayer right now.
Once you accept God’s gift of salvation, you begin a new life and find the blessings of joy, fulfillment, and value.
Once you have confessed your faith in Jesus Christ, you then need to be baptized.
After your baptism, you need to grow in your faith by learning more about God, yielding to his love, and surrendering to his truth so that your life will reflect his grace and glory.
