Would You Like to Win?
Not Just A Game...
There is a problem
A cement wall called sin stands between you and the goal. Sin is an imperfection in your very being which destroys your ability to follow God's way completely. If you want to win, you have to get beyond the wall to reach God. But the wall is too high to climb and too strong to break down on your own.
"All have sinned..." (Romans 3:23)
But there is a plan
God knew we needed a Savior, someone to break down the wall for us and get to the goal. So He sent Jesus Christ, His only Son, to earth. Jesus never sinned, so He was the perfect sacrifice. When he died on the cross, Jesus took your sins and mine on Himself. Then He rose from the dead, breaking down the wall and proving His power over sin, death and hell.
"He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification." (Romans 4:25)
Trusting Jesus is the only way you can win.
"Jesus [said], 'I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John14:6)
It is a fail-proof plan
Jesus' death and resurrection breaks the wall created by your sin-offering you the gift of eternal life. God loves you and wants you to win, but you must accept His gift.
"The wages of sin is death [being separated from God forever], but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23)
Here's how to accept the gift and score the winning goal of life:
"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9)
Pray something like this:
Thank you for sending Jesus to earth to die in my place. Thank you that He rose from the dead. I realize that I am a sinner, and I need Your forgiveness. Please forgive my sins as I put my faith in Jesus and His sacrifice. Thank You for breaking down the wall between You and me.
