God cares, and teaches us:
1. We can know we have eternal life.
“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life.” I John 5:13
2. We cannot gain eternal life by ourselves.
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy He saved us.” Titus 3:5
3. We are all sinners.
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
4. Our sin condemns us to eternal death (hell).
“For the wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23a
“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:14a
5. We have a Savior who died in our place.
“But God commended His love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
6. You must receive Him.
“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” John 1:12
“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.” Romans 10:9
The above was written by Jeff Musgrave to be used in a tract by a small group of people starting a church in the Denver Colorado area in 1984. It is a simple and scriptural outline describing what one must understand and do (receive, believe) in order to become a Christian. If you have any questions about becoming a Christian, please come visit us at Helmers Street Baptist Church Sunday at 10am.
