On that first Good Friday, JESUS CHRIST willingly surrendered HIS life so we could be assured eternal life in heaven when we die. We were all condemned because we couldn’t keep the law, we didn’t deserve heaven because we did things the way we liked, GOD The FATHER was not happy, our doom was certain. But GOD so loved us that He gave His only begotten SON, JESUS CHRIST to the world to be teach us what we need to do, and take away the burden our sin on HIM. JESUS CHRIST was betrayed, rejected, tortured and crucified where He gave up the ghost in pain, just because of us.
After HE was buried He miraculously rose up on the third (3rd) day. It is in that resurrection that JESUS brought new life and all who come to Him and call on His name will cross over from eternal death to eternal life, if we believe he rose from the dead. (as seen in John 19:1-37 ).
GOD’s promise is seen in John 3:16,
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”.
John 20: 1-3 says Jesus rose from the dead early Sunday morning, bringing hope and new life for you and for me. It is in the resurrection that new life begins.
TODAY, YOU CAN BE SPIRITUALLY ALIVE. “But now in Christ Jesus you who were once far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace …” Ephesians 2:13,14
How can I recieve forgiveness from GOD and get a new start ;
If you need a new start, God welcomes you with open arms today.
1. ADMIT– personally admit to God that you want
to be free from sin’s death penalty (Just say it now He is actually listening now)
2. CONFESS your sins to God asking him to forgive
you for living without him (He is still listening to you, keep talking)
3. BELIEVE in your heart that God raised Jesus
from the dead (Just believe).
4. RECIEVE– by faith ask Jesus to come into your
heart to give you God’s free gift of salvation. (Ask Him now and see the wonders, He is ready )
If you did this, the evidence of new life in Christ will be peace in your heart, which will follow your confession of faith. You are now alive spiritually. We are now guaranteed in Heaven when we leave this world and you can talk JESUS everytime now.
