For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
God’s Word reminds us that we all have sinned. We have all fallen short of God’s requirements, for at one time or another, we have all deliberately chosen to disobey God.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
A wage is a payment. The payment for your sin is death and separation from God in a place that the Bible calls Hell.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
The word commendeth means “proved.” God proved His love for you by giving His own Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for your sins.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
To believe on Jesus Christ as Savior means to believe that He died for you, believe that He paid the price for your sin, and believe that He is the only way to Heaven. You can express your belief on Jesus by calling on Him in prayer.
Let us help you word a prayer. (Realize it’s not mere words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ.)
“Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe that you died on the cross and paid the penalty for my sin. I believe that you rose from the dead three days later. I am placing my faith in you alone to forgive my sin and save me. Thank you for giving me eternal life, in Jesus’ name, AMEN.”
