Need Good News?
Friend, this is best news you could ever hear.
First, ask yourself this question: 'Where are you going when you die?' Have
you ever wondered if some of the things you have done would keep you from
going to heaven? You can know right now whether or not you are going to
heaven or hell. The reason you can know now is because your destination
of heaven or hell does not depend on what you do. It depends upon your acceptance
of what God has already done for you.
"The good news is that God tells us He saves us by paying for our sins
and giving us eternal life. Look up and study carefully Ephesians 2:8, 9,
'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.'
"Amazing, isn't it? But God said that He would save us through faith,
not what we do ourselves. It is the gift of God. This means that it is free
to us, because God has paid the price.
"Why not take God at His Word and believe that 'God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should
not perish, but have everlasting life.' This would make you God's child-this
believing in Him-and then, when you disobey Him you would certainly receive
punishment, but He would never lose you or cast you out.
God guarantees this to us in John 6:37 and 39. If you trust Christ as your
Saviour, God will deal with you as His child, and while the punishment for
what you do wrong will never be hell, because you are now His child, He
will chasten you because He loves you.
"To have eternal life you do not have to join a church or pay money;
in fact, you can do nothing to earn eternal life. You simply accept the
payment for your sins that God has already made for you. Believe the record
God gave of His Son.
"You can trust Him. Why not, right now, silently, tell God you believe
that He paid for your sins on the cross, just like He said He did. Right
now, receive Christ as your Saviour. God bless you."
