1) We all have sinned -
Romans 3:23. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

God's Word reminds us that we have all sinned. We have all, everyone, fallen short of God's requirements. Sin is simply disobeying God.

it's not just murdering, stealing or lying. When Adam and Eve ate from the tree that God told them not to touch...that was the first sin.

So the first thing you must do is agree with the Bible and admit to God that you are a sinner.


2) There is a price for sin -
Romans 6:23. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

A wage is payment. The payment for your sin is death and separation from God in a place the Bible calls Hell. There are consequences for our sin. Just as a criminal must face punishment for his crime, so must we pay a penalty for our sin. This penalty is death, an eternal death which is also called the Second Death.

Revelation 20:14, 15. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Secondly, there is the realization that if you die in your sin, you must pay the debt for sin, by dying in Hell, forever.


3) Jesus paid that price -
Romans 5:8. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

The word "commendeth" means "proved" God proved His love for you by giving His own Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for you sins - As sin brings eternal death, God wants to give us eternal life. Dear friend, you must realize that you cannot gain eternal life by going to church, being baptized, or just by being a good person. Eternal life is not something you can earn or buy, but it is a "gift of God" to all who will believe in Jesus Christ alone.

John 14:6. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Romans 6:23. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.


4) We must believe in Jesus -
Romans 10:9. 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 shalt be saved.

To believe on Jesus Christ as Saviour means to believe that He died for you, believe that He paid the price for your sin, and believe that He is the ONLY way to Heaven. You must personally receive God's Gift of eternal life. You must believe what Jesus has done for you and ask Him to save you.

Romans 10:9. 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 shalt be saved.

Romans 10:13. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

If you would like to accept Jesus Christ as Saviour, simply bow your head and humbly:

1. Admit to God that you are a sinner.
2. Tell Him you believe that Jesus died for you.
3. Ask Him to forgive you of your sins and save your soul.
4. Then believe that He promised to save you.

Let us simply help you to word a prayer - (Please realize that it is not the words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ.) "Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe that you died on the cross and paid the penalty for my sin. I believe that you rose for the dead three days later. I am placing my faith in you alone to forgive my sin and save me. Thank you for giving me eternal life and forgiving me my sin, in Jesus' name, AMEN." If you have made the decision to trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour after reading this, we at MBC would like to know that we may pray for you. Simply email us or call the church office so we can rejoice with you in your salvation.
