10 Things God Wants You To Know

throne

 

GOD LOVES YOU AND JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS IN YOUR PLACE FOR YOUR SINS

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, (Jesus) so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” 

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”

” You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

“Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us. And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us. Furthermore, we have seen with our own eyes and now testify that the Father sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. All who confess that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God. We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.”

YOU CAN NEVER BE GOOD ENOUGH TO GET INTO HEAVEN  

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.

“The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.”

ETERNAL LIFE IS A FREE GIFT FROM GOD THROUGH JESUS

“God saved you by his grace when you believed by faith. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.”

“But God is rich in mercy because of his great love for us. We were dead because of our failures, but he made us alive together with Christ. (It is God’s grace that saved you.) God has brought us back to life together with Christ Jesus and has given us a position in heaven with him. He did this through Christ Jesus out of his generosity to us in order to show his extremely rich kindness in the world to come. God saved you through faith as an act of grace. You had nothing to do with it. Being saved is a gift from God. It’s not the result of anything you’ve done, so no one can brag about it. God has made us what we are. He has created us in Christ Jesus to live lives filled with good works that he has prepared for us to do.”

YOU HAVE SINNED AGAINST GOD AND YOUR REWARD IS DEATH

“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.”

“The reward for sin is death, but the gift that God freely gives is everlasting life found in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—”

YOU ARE SEPARATED FROM GOD BECAUSE OF YOUR SIN

“It’s your sins that have separated you from God and your sins have made him hide his face so that he doesn’t hear you.

“For I was born a sinner-yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.”

THE WICKED SHALL NOT ENTER HEAVEN

“Don’t you know that wicked people won’t inherit the kingdom of God? Stop deceiving yourselves! People who continue to commit sexual sins, who worship false gods, those who commit adultery, homosexuals, or thieves, those who are greedy or drunk, who use abusive language, or who rob people will not inherit the kingdom of God.”

“The wicked shall be turned into Hell, and all the people that forget God.”

GOD COMMANDS YOU TO REPENT FROM YOUR SINS WHICH MEANS TO ADMIT AND CONFESS THEM TO GOD AND TURN AWAY FROM THEM

“God overlooked in the past the times when people didn’t know any better. But now he commands everyone everywhere to repent from their sins and turn to him and change the way they think and act. Because He has set a day when he is going to judge the world with justice…”

“God is faithful and reliable. If we confess our sins, he is just to forgive them and cleanses us from everything we’ve done wrong.”

YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN BY RECEVING JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR AND BEING FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

“Yet to all who did receive Him (Jesus), to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but born of God.”

“ Jesus replied, “I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life. So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit.”

YOU MUST PUBLICLY CONFESS YOUR BELIEF IN JESUS BY FAITH

Jesus said “Everyone who confesses me publicly here on earth, I will also confess before my Father in heaven.

“If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”

 WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO BE FORGIVEN AND GO TO HEAVEN

Admit to God you have sinned against Him and need to be forgiven.

Repent, be willing to admit, confess and turn away from your sins and evil ways. The Greek word translated “repentance” is metanoeô and it means much more than regret or sorrow. It means “to turn around, to change direction, to change the mind and will. The word does not signify just any change, but always a change from the wrong to the right, away from sin and to righteousness. Repentance involves sorrow for sin, but sorrow that leads to a change of thinking, desire, and conduct of life

Believe by faith that God allowed His only Son Jesus Christ to be crucified and die on the cross in your place for the punishment of your sins so you would not have to die and be judged for them by being sent to hell.

Accept God’s free gift of eternal life by receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. 

Ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit.

PRAY THIS TO GOD BY FAITH TO BE FORGIVEN AND HAVE ETERNAL LIFE 

Almighty God I admit I have sinned against you and I am a sinner. I confess all my sins to you and turn away from them and I ask you to forgive me. I know I can never be good enough on my own to get into Heaven. I believe Jesus died on the cross for my sins in my place. I believe Everlasting Life is your free gift to me because of your love and grace through my faith in believing. I confess with my mouth and receive Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and I put my faith and trust in Him. I believe in my heart that you raised Jesus from the dead after three days and that I am now a child of God because I have been forgiven and I have everlasting life according to your words. I ask you to put your Holy Spirit in me that I might be born-again spiritually and be able to live for you. Thank you Lord for dying for me and saving me from the punishment of my sins. I love you Lord.
