Have you thought about what will happen when you die? Does the idea of dying scare you? Or, do you not worry about it and just live your life day-by-day? Either way, The Bible speaks clearly of life after death. Some will be separated from God for all eternity, and others will experience eternity with God dwelling with them. Those are the only two choices. The Bible states you are saved by believing the gospel "by grace through faith and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works..." That,
"Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"
Believe the gospel and you are saved.
- There are no other conditions or requirements.
- There isn't even a special prayer to say, just believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ who alone can give everlasting life.
To believe means to have faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
Stated another way:
In order to be saved eternally—good works and/or living a life of obedience to God will not do it. You cannot be good enough. Salvation comes only by faith in the Savior, Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth, and the Life, who shed his blood for you on the cross and rose from the grave. Who will you have faith in for your eternal life? Why not take Jesus at His word and believe Him today?
The gospel is for everyone; man, woman, boy or girl. God has not chosen beforehand those who will be saved (that promise was for Israel), rather the gospel of grace proclaims, whosoever will may come!
