Jesus told us:
Many people have false security in lies:
"ALL of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
"Do not be surprised because I tell you that you must all be born again." (John 3:7)
"It is by God's grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God's gift, so that no one can boast about it." (Ephesians 2:8,9)
"For sin pays its wage - death; but God's free gift is eternal life in union with Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23) "God has shown us how much He loves us - It was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!" (Romans 5:8) We need to accept His offer of forgiveness because if we refuse it, we must suffer the penalty for our own sins.
IT IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIP, NOT RELIGION
Jesus is alive! This isn't about religion. Religion cannot save us. This is about relationship, relationship with the true and living God. He is real! He's not an abstract idea. Let Him come into your heart to live.
Jesus says in Revelation 3:20, 21, "Listen! I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into his house and eat with him, and he will eat with me. To those who win the victory I will give the right to sit beside me on the throne just as I have been victorious and now sit by my Father on His throne."
He's offering you that opportunity right now to have eternal LIFE. Let Him into your life or let Him BACK into your life. Open the door to your heart.
I believe Jesus died for my sins and was raised to life. Forgive me for my sins. Come into my heart and save me. Help me become the person you want me to be. In Jesus' name, amen.
