“Except a man be born again, he cannot
see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Later He

mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go
to prepare a place for you” (John 14:2).
word assures us of heaven, but it also warns us of a
place of torment. Revelation 20:15 says, ". .
.whosoever was not found written in the book of life was
cast into the lake of fire.” God doesn’t want anyone
to spend eternity in hell. We are told that He is “.
. . not willing that any should perish . . .” (2
Apostle John writes, “These things have I written
unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God:
that ye may know that ye have eternal life . . .” (1
John 5:13). God has provided everything we need to spend

Bible tells us the story of Philip and the Ethiopian
eunuch as he was reading about Jesus from the book of
Isaiah, “And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him
read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understand thou what
thou readest?” And he said, “How can I, except
some man should guide me? . . .” (Acts 8:30–31).

God cannot tolerate sin because of His holiness—He is
completely without any wrong.
people only think of sin as a type of crime—something
done against society. Sin is more than a crime, it is a

by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin;
and so death passed upon all men, for that all have

“For the wages of
sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
Bible tells us that hell will be a terrible place. It
will be filled with anguish and pain beyond any human’s
comprehension. Jesus told his disciples that “The Son
of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall
gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and
them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a
furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of
teeth.” (Matthew 13:41–42).

What cleanses us from all
sin? The shed blood of Jesus Christ.
When John the
Baptist first saw Jesus he proclaimed, “. . . Behold the
Lamb of God, which taketh
away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). Jesus Christ was
the final and ultimate sacrifice. The blood from His
sacrifice doesn’t cover our sin, it totally cleanses us

the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the
blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin”
(1 John 1:7).

payment for sin? No.
“And almost all
things are by the law purged with blood; and without
shedding of blood is no remission” (Hebrews
there anything a person can do to pay for sin? No.
by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of
yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest
any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8–9).

“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the
world; but that the world through him might be saved”

begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not
perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
are God’s conditions for having everlasting

him” (John 3:36).
Jesus ever turn someone away? No.
“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I

is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold,
all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). When a

becomes a member of God’s family. The Bible states,
as many as received him, to them gave he power to become
the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name”
You must Repent
To repent is to see your condition as God sees it and to
express sorrow. In this case, you repent of your sin.
“For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation . . .”
(2 Corinthians 7:10). You must admit to God that you are
a sinner deserving of hell because of your sin.
Repentance is also a sincere turning away from sin to
God. The Bible states “. . . that they should repent and
turn to God, and do works meet for repentance” (Acts
You must Believe
Believing is more than just acknowledging that Jesus
Christ exists. The Bible says, “. . . the devils also
believe, and tremble” (James 2:19). True believing is
placing your complete confidence in Him and His ability
to save you. “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).
believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ is the Son
of God, and that He died on the cross to save you.
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. For with the heart
man believeth unto righteousness . . .” (Romans
You must Ask
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved” (Romans 10:13). To call upon the Lord is
to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sin and save you
from an eternity in hell. You must pray and ask for

is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through
Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
Bible says, “For by grace are ye saved . . . it is the
gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8). Like any gift, it is not
yours until you receive it. “But as many as received
him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name” (John 1:12). You
must pray and tell the Lord that you wish to receive His
wonderful gift of eternal life!
have come to the place in your life where you must make
a decision. If you choose to accept the payment made by
the Lord Jesus Christ for your sin, then you simply need
to bow your head and pray. Tell Jesus, in your own
words, that you are sorry for your sin and ask Him to
forgive you and save you from hell. Tell Him you are
willing to receive Him as your Lord and Savior. Let Him
know you want to accept His gift of eternal life.
Remember, Jesus Christ never turns anyone away!
Lord is . . . not willing that any should perish, but
that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
