Have you ever asked yourself, “What will happen once my body dies”, or, “How can I know that I can reach Heaven”? Other questions similar to these might be, “How do I receive forgiveness for all of the bad things I have done”, or “How may I live forever”? If you have asked these questions or questions similar to these, please read on. Below, I will share with you how you may receive eternal life and be forgiven of your wrong doings at the same time. I promise that what I have to share with you will not cost you even 1 cent. Moreover, the information that I have to share with you and the gift of eternal life are absolutely FREE…Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, born from a virgin (let’s face it, it had to be a humanly impossible birth to show the world that Jesus is God), came to Earth for one reason: To pay the penalty for each human being that breaks God’s laws. The Bible calls these acts of breaking God’s laws sin. God loves each and every person so much that He sent His son to die on a cross made of wood to pay for my sins and your sins (or breaking God’s laws). Please read below to see the instructions that God gives on how to be forgiven of your sins and to receive eternal life, all in one, completely free transaction.
God’s Plan of Salvation
In the Bible, God’s Word given to the human race, a plan is presented on how you and I may receive pardon from our sins. If you sincerely follow the steps provided below with your heart, mind, and speech, you will receive a pardon from God for breaking His laws, and eternal life.
In the Bible, in a Letter to the Romans (aka the Book of Romans), Chapter 3:23, the Bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”. What this means is that every person on this Earth has broken at least 1 of God’s laws and has come short of God’s glory. What this verse is saying is that everyone has messed up and broke one of God’s laws at one point in their life.
The Book of Romans, Chapter 6:23, the Bible says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” This scripture tells us that the payment, or penalty of breaking God’s laws (sin) is death. The death spoken of here is not only a physical death (first death) in the body, but there is also a second death mentioned in the Bible for people who choose to pay for breaking God’s laws themselves. In the Book of Revelations, Chapter 21:8 says, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” From this verse we understand that the second death entails being thrown into a burning lake of fire and brimstone. Returning back to second half of the scripture in the Book of Romans, Chapter 6:23, we learn that God has a gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Just as the President of the United States is able to give out pardons to prisoners who have committed crimes, God has chosen to give the gift of eternal life and a pardon for breaking His laws (sins).
In the Book of Romans, Chapter 5:8, the Bible tells us, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” This scripture is telling us that God commendeth, or committed His love toward us while we were breaking His laws. Since God loves us, He does not want us to die. For that reason, He chose to have His son, Jesus Christ, die in our place. Jesus Christ died on a cross similar to the one pictured above for one reason: To allow us to receive a pardon for breaking Gods laws and avoid the second death mentioned in the scriptures above. How does one receive a pardon from God?
In Romans, Chapter 10:9 – 11, the Bible tells us, “That if thou (you) 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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.” Furthermore, in verse 13, the Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” From those last scriptures, we learn that receiving a pardon from God is as easy as calling upon the name of the Lord, confessing the Lord Jesus, and believing in your heart that God has raised him from the dead. If you want the pardon that God has provided to you, all you have to do is call out to Jesus, confess Him as Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead. Below, I have provided a sample prayer that may guide you in receiving God’s pardon. The Bible uses the word whosoever which means that anyone may receive this pardon. If you would like to receive God’s pardon and gift of eternal life, please feel free to use these words below. I want to emphasize that the words alone will not allow you to receive the pardon, but you must also believe these things in your heart also.
A Prayer to receive God’s Pardon
” I call upon you Lord Jesus to forgive (pardon) me of my sins against God. I believe that you are the Son of God, sent to die to pay for my sins, and that you came back from the dead on the third day. I accept you as my Savior; to take me to Heaven when my body dies. Thank you for paying for my sins. In your name, Amen.”
If you have prayed that prayer or a prayer similar to the one above AND meant what you said in your heart, the Bible says that you are saved (pardoned) from your sins. You have been adopted into the family of God as one of His sons or daughters. If you have done this, please reach out to our church by phone, email, or prayer request. All three of these resources may be found on this site. We would like the opportunity to share more about the benefits that adoption into God’s family brings, and to pray for your continued success. Congratulations on your new life as a son or daughter of God. May God Bless you with the richness of His Love and Mercy!
