GOD’S WAY TO FORGIVENESS OF SIN, FELLOWSHIP
WITH HIM, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN
In order to receive God’s forgiveness, fellowship and eternal life, you must repent. In St. Luke chapter 13 verse 3 Jesus said, “Unless you repent you all will likewise perish.” Therefore, you must repent. You must come to God with a sorrowful mind and heart concerning God and sin, accompanied with a desire to turn away from a lifestyle of sin, the attitude and actions that offend a holy and righteous God.
You must believe that Jesus Christ was and is God, the Son, and that upon the cross every single sin you ever committed past, present and future was placed upon Him.
You must believe that upon the cross Jesus Christ took personally for you God’s wrath the punishment and penalty due to you and your sins. I Peter chapter 2 verse 24 states “And He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross that we might die to sin and live to righteousness for by His wounds you were healed.”
You must believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and on the third day he rose from the dead, and the very moment you come to God with true sorrow for your sinfulness, with a desire to turn from sin and place complete trust in the Person and work of Jesus Christ, God will forgive all your sins, past present and future, you will have a personal relationship with Him and God will now hear and answer your prayers giving you the desires of your heart in accordance to His perfect plan and will for your life; and through the tribulations of life, all things will now be working together for good and upon death you will spend eternity in heaven with the One who loved you and died for you, God your Savior.
1 John chapter 5 verse 13 states, “These things I have written unto you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.”
