God's Plan For Your Life
My friend, may I ask you life's most important question? All eternity depends upon your answer to this question. Are you saved? There are just two kinds of people in the world, the saved and the lost. God loves you and wants you to be saved to spend eternity with Him in Heaven. Here is God's plan for your life:
First: You need to be saved! "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23).
Second: You cannot save yourself! "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saves us." (Titus 3:5).
Third: Jesus has provided for your salvation! "Who (Jesus) His own self bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead (spiritually) to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye are healed." (I Peter 2:24). "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in (receives) Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16).
Fourth: You must ask Jesus for salvation! "If any man hear My voice (Christ's) and open the door (to your heart), I will come in to him (you)..." (Revelation 3:20). "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth (in prayer) the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9).
Fifth: Now is the time to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior! "...behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." (II Corinthians 6:2).
What to do to be saved: Right now, call upon the Lord Jesus Christ to save you. Realize you are a sinner, and that Christ died in your place. By faith, ask God to have mercy on you and to save you for Jesus' sake.
What to pray: "Lord, be merciful to me a lost sinner and save me now. I ask you to forgive me of my sins and come into my heart. Please help me to follow and obey Jesus as Lord of my life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
