He wants all of us to lead full, rich lives and experience His love (John
10:10; Jer. 31:3).
But everybody has rebelled against God and lived sinfully.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Rom.
This separates us forever from God.
Furthermore, we deserve to pay a penalty because we sinned (Rom. 6:23).
Only God could solve the problem. And He did!
He loved us so much He sent His Son, Jesus, to die, paying the penalty each
of us deserved (John 3:16-17).
But you are not forced to accept God's solution.
To apply Jesus' payment for sin to your life, you must personally commit
yourself in belief to Him.
You can have forgiveness.
If you declare openly that Jesus is who He claimed to be and believe that God
raised Him from the dead, God has promised you eternal life (Rom. 10:9; 1
Cor. 15:3-4; 1 John 5:11).
You can KNOW you are saved and have eternal life.
"These things have I written unto you that believe on
the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life,
and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
