Will You Open This Book And Find Out What’s Inside?
God made everything. The Bible says, “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:3)
Since God made everything, He owns everything. God says, “The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” (Psalms 24:1)
Since God owns everything, He gets to make the rules. At first God made only one rule: Adam and Eve could eat of every tree in the garden except one.
Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate the fruit that God told them not to eat. They sinned.
Because they sinned, they were separated from God. If they died this way, they would have gone to a place called hell.
God made you. The Bible says, “Thy hands have made me and fashioned me:” (Psalms 119:73a)
Because God made you, He owns you. Because God owns you, He gets to make the rules for you. Have you obeyed His rules all of the time?
Here are some of His rules:
“Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.”
“Thou shalt not steal.” (Exodus 20:15)
“Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”
You have disobeyed God’s rules. You have sinned. The Bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)
Because of sin, you are separated from God. If you die this way, you will go to hell. It is a place of fire and torment. God says, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:15)
The good news is this: God has made a way for you to be saved. He loves you and He does not want you to perish. “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)
God sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for your sins. Jesus came from heaven to live in a human body so He could die for you. Jesus is God. Do you know what that means? God gave His life for you!
The Bible says, “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 15:3b-4)
Jesus is not dead. He is alive. He rose from the dead. That’s how we know He had the victory over sin. God wants you to be saved. You might be thinking, “How do I get saved?”
God tells us we need to repent of our sin and trust Jesus to save us. How do you repent? Turn from your sin to God.
If you do not repent, you will die and go to hell. Jesus said, “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:3)
The Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13), and “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved,” (Acts 16:31b)
“Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe that you are the Son of God; that you are God Almighty in the flesh, the Creator of heaven and earth. I do believe that you are the only Savior; that you died on the cross for me, and gave your precious blood to pay my sin debt; and then you arose from the grave the third day. I do now repent of my sins, and receive you as my Savior. Please forgive me, and save my soul. Please raise up my life from sin and shame, and use it now for your glory. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
Yes, I just asked the Lord Jesus Christ to save me, and I desire to now live for Him.
God wants you to now openly confess Him by getting baptized under the water, and to faithfully attend a Bible-preaching church. If you will write to us, we have some excellent Bible Study Courses to help you learn more.
