God loves you!

"There is one God." God rules over all the universe.

God is a Spirit. God is all powerful and He is loving and kind. "God is love" -- and God loves you and wants you to be His child.

We have sinned. Sin is saying or doing or even thinking things that are wrong. The problem is that you and I, all of us, often choose to go our own ways instead of God's way. We are often selfish, and rebellious against God; we lie and cheat and steal and are proud. These are called sins, and our sins separate us from God. "For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God." No matter how much we try, we can never reach God with our own efforts. God is perfect, and we sin often in what we do and in our hearts.

God sent Jesus. 2,000 years ago, God sent His Son Jesus Christ into the world so that our sins could be forgiven. Jesus lived a perfect life and He healed and loved people and taught them about God. Even though He was perfect and loving and kind, He was put to death like a common criminal on a cross of wood. When He died, He willingly took the sins of the world -- yours and mine -- and paid the penalty in our place. "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him would not perish, but would have everlasting life."

We deserve punishment for our sins, but Jesus Christ took the punishment in our place. "The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord."

You can accept Jesus. If you want to accept the free gift of God's love and forgiveness for your sins, you can ask Jesus Christ to be your Savior and ask God to forgive your sins. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His Name."

If you would like to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, and turn your life over to God, you can pray this prayer now and ask Jesus into your life.

"Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God Who died to pay the penalty for my sins. I open the door of my heart and ask you to be my Savior and Lord. I ask your forgiveness for all my sins. Please forgive my sins and help me to live for you."
