Most people spend more time during the week thinking about where they’re going for the weekend than they do in their whole life thinking about where they’re going for eternity.

 

Please take a moment to consider:

- WHAT you need when earthly life is over
- WHY you need it
- HOW to get it

 

 

WHAT
You need Jesus Christ for eternal life… “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life…his Son Jesus Christ. This [Jesus Christ] is the true God, and eternal life.“ (1John 5:11-12, 20)

 

WHY
You need Jesus Christ because you are missing eternal life and righteousness when you are born. This is because you inherited death and sin from our first parents, Adam and Eve… “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12) …proven by the fact that you have broken the Ten Commandments. “…sin is the transgression of the law. “ (1 John 3:4)

“man looketh on the outward appearance… Exodus 20:3-17 …but the LORD looketh on the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)

 

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

1. THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment” (Matthew 22:37-38)
2. THOU SHALT NOT MAKE UNTO THEE ANY GRAVEN IMAGE
“…these men have set up their idols in their heart…” (Ezekiel 14:3) “…covetousness, which is idolatry:” (Colossians 3:5)
3. THOU SHALT NOT TAKE THE NAME OF THE LORD THY GOD IN VAIN
“…how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” (Matthew 12:34)
4. REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO KEEP IT HOLY
“For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” (Hebrews 4:10-11) “…an evil heart of unbelief…” (Hebrews 3:12)
5. HONOR THY FATHER AND THY MOTHER
“…He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.” (Matthew 15:4
6. THOU SHALT NOT KILL
“Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer…” (1John 3:15)
7. THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY
“…whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” (Matthew 5:28)
8. THOU SHALT NOT STEAL
“For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within…” (Mark 7:21-23)
9. THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST THY NEIGHBOR
“…why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie…?” (Acts 5:3)
“…all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8)
10. THOU SHALT NOT COVET ANY THING THAT IS THY NEIGHBOUR’S
“…for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.” (Ezekiel 33:31)

 

God requires a payment for breaking His Law (sinning)

“For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23a)

“The soul that sinneth, it shall die” (Ezekiel 18:20)

“…into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” (Revelation 20:14)

The GOOD NEWS OF THE BIBLE is that God has already made the payment on your behalf by His death for your sins.

“But God commendeth (exhibited) his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” (Romans 5:8-9)

“…Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” (1 Corinthians 15: 3-4)

“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

“…Jesus Christ the righteous.” (1 John 2:1)

“…the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23b)

Jesus Christ is the eternal life and righteousness you are missing!

HOW

…and that payment is yours when you believe on Christ. “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…” Acts 16:31

“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." (John 3:16)

“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25)

To ‘believe’ is “to have faith in” or “to entrust one’s spiritual well-being to Christ”.
Today is the day that you should take God at His word and once-for-all trust
in the Lord Jesus Christ and not your own works
— not in trying to be ‘good enough’,
not in being part of a certain church, not in religious acts such as penance, baptism,
or praying prayers…

“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us…” (Titus 3:5)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, not of works…” (Ephesians 2:8,9a).

DO NOT WAIT — BECAUSE THERE IS NO OTHER WAY!

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”
(1 Timothy 2:5)
