THE GOSPEL

We are all sinners.
  • Without God, man follows his own rules and plans. Isaiah 53:6, "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him (Christ) the iniquity of us all."
  • No one is perfect. Everyone has at least made one mistake. Jesus said, "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: but I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart," (Matthew 5:27-28). God knows our thought life completely.
  • No one is good enough. A person might have done numerous good works but even that could not earn salvation. Isaiah 64:6 says, "All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away." "For by grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast," Ephesians 2:8-9.
  • We all have failed at least once if not many times to "Love God with all our hearts, mind, and strength" and "Love others as we love ourselves".
  • "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).  Everybody needs Jesus for we all have sinned.
The penalty of sin…
  • "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord," (Romans 6:23).
  • Romans 5:12, "Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned."
  • Revelation 20:15 , "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
Jesus paid the price of sin, a debt we can never pay, by his blood
  • John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
  • Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
  • Whether you think of yourself as too good or extremely bad or anything in between to receive forgiveness…come to Jesus.
  • Jesus said: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matthew 11:28 ).
  • "But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5).
  • JESUS PAID FOR ALL OUR SINS ON THE CROSS AND WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD…1 Corinthians 15: 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures
  • SIMPLY BELIEVE ON JESUS AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN IS PROMISED AND GUARANTEED…
  • John 11:25-26 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
  • Acts 16:30-31 Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved-
  • John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. Rom. 8: 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come.39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
