GOD'S PLAN OF SALVATION

      God has a wonderful purpose for your life. He wants you to honor and glorify Him. We all have a problem that mars this perfect purpose, however. All of us are born in sin and we also choose to sin rather than to obey and love God. "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23) This results ultimately in eternal separation from God. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). Eternal death separates a person, both soul and body, from God forever in hell (Revelation 20:15). Man has devised many humanistic ways to gain eternal life, but every attempt has been unsuccessful. "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death" (Proverbs 14:12).

      God's way of salvation is not through a plan or program but the Person Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, God's sinless Son, was sent by the Father to pay the complete penalty for our sins by dying on the cross in our place. "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God" (1 Peter 3:18a). In order to receive the gift of eternal life, you must repent of sin and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance is a change of mind toward your sin and Jesus Christ. Faith is a whole being trust, mind, heart and will, in the Lord Jesus Christ. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out" (Acts 3:19). "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved" (Acts 16:31a).

      Jesus promises that "as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" (John 1:12). If you have not done so, trust Him today! Jesus is the bridge to everlasting life with God. Call us at 212-633-0382 if you need to talk to someone about this most important decision you can ever make!
