Romans 3:23 
In other words: In order for us to receive eternal life on our own, we would have to be perfect. But we are sinful from the time we are born (Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.), so we all fall short of God's standard of perfection. We cannot get eternal life on our own because we already fall short of its requirements.
Go Back Up

Romans 6:23a 
In other words: God is a holy God. He deals perfectly with sin. God cannot let sin go unpunished. The penalty we earn for sinning is spiritual death, that is, we are separated from God. Since we are born with sin, there is nothing we can do on our own to remove its penalty.

Go Back Up

Romans 5:8 
In other words: God loves us and knows we cannot gain eternal life on our own. He loves us so much that He was willing to pay the price for our sins Himself. The consequence of sin is death (Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.), so God became a man, Jesus Christ, lived a sinless life, and gave up His life for us in order that our sins would be forgiven and our penalty of death would be paid in full.
Go Back Up

Romans 10: 9-10 
In other words: We receive God's gift of salvation by believing that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ paid the price for our sins. We believe this through faith. We are not saved merely by saying that we believe in Christ. We are saved only when our words are saying what we believe in our hearts. Faith is more than internal belief. It demonstrates itself in external action.
Go Back Up

Romans 6:23b 
In other words: Since Christ paid the price for sin (death), we are now offered an eternal relationship with God. This gift is offered freely by God. We don't deserve it, nor can we ever do anything to earn it. It is offered simply because it pleases God to do so, and we are able to have it because Christ paid our price of eternal death (separation from God).
Go Back Up

Romans 10:11 
In other words: There is no shame when we believe and follow Christ (Romans 12:2). We no longer need to fear what anyone else thinks about us (Matthew 10:28 And do not fear those who kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. / Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.) because we know that we are saved from our sins and will be with God in heaven forever. We No longer fear God punishing us because all our sins (past, present, future) are forgiven (Romans 8:1)
Go Back Up

Romans 8:15 
In other words: As a result of our faith in Christ, we are now children of God. Just like you will always be the son or daughter of your earthly dad, you will always be a child of God. Nothing can ever change that. God loves us so much that he wants us to know Him intimately. That is why we call Him "Daddy," which is what the word "Abba" means.
Go Back Up




You have read the word and are aware of your need and now YOU must now make the most important decision of you life, to accept Jesus and be with God in heaven forever or to reject Jesus and live eternally without Him.

Prayer:
Lord Jesus I know that I am a sinner, but you have said that if I confess with my mouth "Jesus is Lord" and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved. I believe this is true and do believe with my heart that Christ died for me. Forgive me my sins and come into my life Lord Jesus.
Amen!

If this prayer was from your heart your life will show it. You are now a child of God. Just like you will always be the son or daughter of your earthly dad, you will always be a child of God. Nothing can ever change that. God loves you so much that he wants you to know Him intimately. That is why we call Him "Daddy," which is what the word "Abba" means.

Now study the Bible and get involved with a local, Christ centered church and tell the world that you are a child of God.
