2000 years ago God visited this Earth in the person
of the Messiah of Israel. The Messiah is the infinite God-Man
(100% God and 100% Man). He did this because
everyone sinned and broke His laws. This means
that everyone deserves the punishment of death
Instead of punishing us,
which is what we deserve, He decided to become a man
and take our punishment for us.
The Messiah, God in the flesh, became the ultimate
sacrifice for our sins when He was crucified on the
cross. Our part is to stop thinking that we
deserve eternal life and to start trusting the
sacrifice that the Messiah made. When we truly
trust what He did and what his sacrifice means, then we
receive eternal life in Heaven.
Accepting the gift of eternal life means that your
life is changed today. The following is a walk through
some passages in the Bible to help further explain
Eternal Life is a free gift.-
It cannot be earned or deserved.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and
that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast."
"...the gift of God is eternal life through
Jesus Christ our Lord."
2. Man is a Sinner.
- Everyone has broken God's laws.
Romans 3:23 "For
all have sinned, and come short of the glory of
Romans 3:10 "There
is none righteous, no, not one."
1 John 3:4 "Sin
is the transgression of the law."
3. God is love, but
he is also just. - Because we have sinned, we
deserve God's punishment.
Even though God is love....
4:8 "...God is love."
31:3 "...I have loved thee with an
...He is also just and must punish us.
6:23 "For the wages of sin is death..."
34:7 "God.....will by no means
clear the guilty."
The Messiah paid our debt.
- God became a man to take our punishment
The Messiah is God in the Flesh. The
1:1 & 14 "In the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word
was God. . . . And the Word was made
flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his
glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
Father, full of grace and truth."
The Messiah took our punishment.
53:6 "All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way; and the
LORD hath laid on Him the iniquity of us
3:16 "For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life."
5. The free gift is
received by faith. - We need to stop trusting
ourselves and start trusting the Messiah.
16:31 "Believe on the Lord Jesus
Christ (the Messiah), and thou shalt be saved."
If you have not trusted the
for eternal life, we urge you to do so today.
