Dear Friend: SOMEDAY YOU AND I
MUST STAND BEFORE GOD. Can you
think of anything more sobering than that? Do not think for a moment that you
can avoid this appointment. God has
already warned us: “It is appointed unto men ONCE TO
DIE, but after this THE JUDGMENT.” (Hebrews
9:27) How horrible that day
will be for those who have rejected the Lord Jesus Christ!
“How shall WE escape, if WE neglect so great
salvation...” (Hebrews 2:3) Please
notice carefully how you can prepare to face God.
NONE ARE RIGHTEOUS
Here is the way God sees the human race: “As it
is written, there is NONE RIGHTEOUS, no not one.” (Romans 3:10)
ALL HAVE SINNED and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
Dear Friend, no one looks for a doctor until he realizes he is sick, and
no one seeks the Savior until he realizes he is a sinner.
Are you ready to ADMIT TO GOD AND TO YOURSELF that YOU are a SINNER in
the sight of a holy God?
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not
inherit the kingdom of God?” (I Cor. 6:9)
“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget
God.” (Psalms 9:17) There
is NO WAY that you can enter God’s heaven until something is done about your
YOU CANNOT CREATE YOUR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS
“For they being ignorant of GOD’S
RIGHTEOUSNESS, and going about to establish THEIR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, have not
submitted themselves unto the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.”
(Romans 10:3) Dear
Friend, church membership, baptism, giving to the poor, living a moral life,
etc., cannot make you righteous in the sight of God.
YOU CAN BE RIGHTEOUS THROUGH JESUS
“For HE (God) hath made HIM (Jesus) to be sin
for US, who knew no sin; that WE might be made the righteousness of God in
HIM.” (II Cor. 5:21) “For
Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the JUST for the unjust, that he might
bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened (made alive) by
the Spirit.” (I Peter 3:18) How much God loves us! He
allowed His own Son to be crucified on a cruel cross so that we could be saved.
YOU CAN HAVE CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS RIGHT NOW
For CHRIST is the end of the law for
righteousness to EVERYONE that BELIEVETH....That is 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....For WHOSOEVER shall CALL UPON THE NAME OF
THE LORD shall be SAVED.” (Romans 10:4, 9, 13)
Dear Friend, your eternal SOUL is one thing you MUST NOT LOSE! Don’t
spend another second apart from Jesus Christ.
He LOVED you enough to DIE for you.
He KNOCKS at your heart’s door this moment and ASKS TO COME in.
Notice again His wonderful promise:
“FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE
LORD SHALL BE SAVED.” WON’T
YOU TURN FROM YOUR SIN AND RECEIVE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST THIS VERY DAY.
the following prayer several times; then BOW your head and sincerely CALL upon
the Lord to forgive and save you.
Lord, I confess that I am a GUILTY SINNER and that I NEED TO BE SAVED.
I believe that JESUS DIED on the cross TO PAY MY SIN DEBT.
Please FORGIVE MY SIN, COME into MY HEART, and SAVE MY SOUL. I NOW
RECEIVE JESUS as my own Savior.”
