I PRESUME YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.  You would like to be born again.  “Jesus answered, ‘I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s kingdom.’”

‭‭John‬ ‭3:3‬ ‭(ncv)  “There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.””

‭‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭4:12‬ (nlt)

  1. Believe that God loves you, gave His Son for you, and didn’t come to judge you.

John 3:16-17

  1. Believe that you have a problem called sin! And sin causes eternal death and separation from God. “The payment for sin is death.”

Romans 6:23

  1. Believe  “that Christ died for your sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day ….”

‭‭      1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:3-4‬ ‭(niv)

  1. You must accept that you are a sinner. You can’t buy your way in. You can’t earn your way in.
  2. You must believe by faith that although you are a sinner, Christ died for you, confess with great sorrow, and that you are willing to give up on the sin life. That’s called repentance! Surrender!

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.”  ‭‭Romans‬ ‭5:8-9‬ ‭

“‘Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.’”  ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭3:20‬ ‭(nlt)

“Out of my bondage, sorrow and night,

Jesus, I come, Jesus, I come;

Into Thy freedom, gladness and light,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of my sickness into Thy health,

Out of my want and into Thy wealth,

Out of my sin and into Thyself,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

“Out of my shameful failure and loss,

Jesus, I come, Jesus, I come;

Into the glorious gain of Thy cross,

Jesus, I come to Thee.

Out of earth’s sorrows into Thy balm,

Out of life’s storms and into Thy calm,

Out of distress to jubilant psalm,

Jesus, I come to Thee.”

(William T. Sleeper – 1819-1904)
