GOSPEL – Simply meaning, ‘Good-news’… How to find God!
PROBLEM: God is Holy, We are not (Romans 3:23). We have, without exception, fallen into SIN which has separated us from a Holy God.
SOLUTION: God has laid the punishment for our ‘wrongs’ on His own Son, Jesus Christ, who suffered capital punishment on the Cross and shed His blood for us (Ephesians 1:6-7), so that we could be saved to go free and Holy in God’s sight.
ACCESS: God does not force this salvation on everyone, but makes it available as a free gift (Ephesians 2:8) to anyone who asks to receive it through a prayer of faith. Therefore…
RECEIVING: “Dear Lord, I thank you for your Son Jesus, who died on the cross for me. I repent of all my sin and wrong. I ask you to cleanse me by the blood of Christ and come into my life by your Holy Spirit. I want to follow you for the rest of my life. Amen”
REWARD: The moment you say this prayer in faith and belief, God gives you His Holy Spirit to indwell your life and receive His presence, His peace, His purpose for your life and His power to help you live it. AND – He promises you a place in Heaven when you die, that will last for all eternity.
