If You Only Knew

 If you knew someone loved you so much they'd die for you...would you love them back? 

If you knew someone paid for your debts, all of them, what would you do?

Would you turn away from them?  Would you run to them?

Someone DID pay for your debts.  Someone DID pay for your sins.  And...someone DID die for you.

Jesus.  He did it all. 

He paid your penalties, your debts, all that you owe for your wrong doings. 

Without Jesus, you are dead in your trespasses, your sins.  Your sin debt keeps getting deeper with no way out. 

With Jesus, you are sin debt is erased, washed away, forgotten as if you'd never sinned. 

He loves you that much...He left His glory in heaven to come down to earth, as a lowly carpenter's son, and lived a sinless life.  No one else could do that.  He experienced hunger and thirst, love, anger, hurt, sorrow, and all the other feelings we feel.  He knew His ending on earth, yet He came.  He knew He'd be crucified for teaching and preaching the Word of God.  He knew He'd die a horrible death between two criminals, the most excrutiatingly painful and lowest of deaths, but He still came.  He allowed Himself to die at the hands of men...


Because He loves you and me that much. 

If you only knew how much you are loved...  You'd love Him too.  You'd come to Him in faith, ask Him to take your sins and give you forgiveness and a home in Heaven with Him.  You'd read His Word, preserved through the years in written form, and learn more of Him.  You'd know you are loved beyond all measure, by the One who loves us all so much He gave up His life on earth. 

But--that's not all He did out of love for you and me...  He rose again!  He rolled the stone away, arose from the tomb, and walked among men again.  He defeated death and hell, out of his love for you.  He did it for you.  For me.  For everyone.

If you only knew how much you are loved, you'd seek Jesus and find the peace He gives when you trust Him.  You'd find that He is the only Rock to lean on, that He is the only One who can give you strength when you have none, peace in the midst of the worst storms, and a sense of belonging when you're beyond lonely. 

What does He ask of you? 

Faith.  Trust.  Belief on Him to do as He says He will do.  Trusting Him to lead you as your Lord and Savior. 

Do you have to accept His love and sacrifice?  No.  It is absolutely your decision.  Jesus does not force Himself on you, me, or anyone else.  That's not how He works.  He waits for you, with loving arms open for you.  Many choose not to accept the love, peace, salvation He offers, but they lose out on the best of this life and the next.  You have that choice as long as you are on this side of the grave--you absolutely can choose to take Jesus up on His offer.  It is never too late while you're alive! 

No matter what you have done, no matter how low you've fallen, Jesus loves you!  He knows our deepest of secrets and loves us anyway!  Isn't that amazing??  You absolutely cannot have done anything or do anything that He hasn't seen or doesn't know about.  With Him, there are no secrets, and no matter the worst we've done, He still loves us.  Hard to believe isn't it? 

I'd be glad to help you, if you'd like to know Jesus as your Lord and Savior.  I'd love to have you as a sister (or brother) in Christ!  It doesn't matter who you are, where you're from, or your past...I'd love to have you as a sibling in Christ!

Who is Good?
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.  There is none, that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no not one."  (Romans 3:10-12)

Who Has Sinned?
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
"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)

What Is The Eternal Cost of Your Sin?
"For the wages of sin is death..."  (Romans 6:23)
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men..." (Romans 1:18)

You Cannot Save Yourself
"Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight..." (Romans 3:20)
"Where is boasting then?  It is excluded.  By what law?  of works?   Nay: but by the law of faith."  (Romans 3:27)

God's Love Has Provided The Way!
"But God commendeth 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)

You Must Place Your Complete Faith in Jesus Christ
"Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering:  not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?"  (Romans 2:4)
"Even the righteousness of god which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe."  (Romans 3:22)
"Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law."  (Romans 3:28)
"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)

Do You Believe That Jesus Christ Alone Can Save You?
The Bible states, "And being fully persuaded that, what he (God) had promised, he was able also to perform."  (Romans 4:21)

Here is God's Promise to You:
"...if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.  Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:"  (Romans 4:24-5:1)

Pray Now And Ask Him To Save You!
"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."  (Romans 10:10)

If you will accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, please pray this prayer or one similar to it with all of you heart:  "Dear God, I admit I am a sinner, going to hell.  I know that I cannot save myself.  I turn from my sins and put my faith in the blood that you shed for me on the cross to pay for all my sins.  I now accept you as my Saviour and trust you to take me to heaven.  Thank you for saving me.  Amen."

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  (Romans 10:13)
