The Bridge to Life
The Bible teaches that God loves all men and He wants them to know Him.
from God and His love.
"God is on one side and all the people on the other side." 1 Timothy 2:5, Living Bible
Why is man separated from God and His love?
Because he has sinned against God.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
"But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you so that He does not hear." Isaiah 59:2
Where does this separation lead?
This separation leads only to death and certain judgment.
"Man is destined to die once and after that to face judgment." Hebrews 9:27
"Those who do not know God will be punished with destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord." 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9
But... there is a solution.
Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for our sins, is the way to God.
"God is on one side and all the people on the other side, and Christ Jesus. Himself man, is between them to bring them together, by giving His life for all mankind." 1 Timothy 2:5, LB
"Christ died for your sins once for all... to bring you to God." 1 Peter 3:18
Does this include everyone?
No. Only those who personally receive Jesus Christ into their lives, trusting Him to forgive their sins.
"Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12
Each one must decide for Himself whether to receive Christ.
"Jesus says, 'Here I Am, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will go in and eat with Him, and He with Me.'" Revelation 3:20
How does a person receive Jesus Christ? Jesus said, "You must ask Me for anything in My name, and I will do it."Therefore if you pray sincerely, asking Him -
Lord Jesus, please come into my life and be my Saviour and Lord. Please forgive my sins, and give me the gift of eternal life.
- He will do it now.
If you have invited
Jesus Christ into your life,
the Bible says you now have eternal life.
"And this is the testimony:
God has given us eternal life
and this life is in His Son."
1 John 5:11
To deepen this relationship you should:
- Regularly read the Bible to know Christ better.
- Talk to God in prayer every day.
- Tell others about your new faith in Christ.
- Worship, fellowship and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached.
- As Christ's representative in a needy world, demonstrate your new life by your love and concern for others.
