For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? ~Matthew 16:26
Everyone is born into this world a sinner, lost and separated from God because of Adam and Eve’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden.
God in His mercy provided a way of redemption. This redemption comes through His Son Jesus. Jesus took upon Himself the sins and guilt of the world and laid down His life on the cross as a substitute for us.
God accepted the blood of His Son as atonement for the sins of the world and raised Him three days later. Jesus ascended unto Heaven, where to this day He sits at the right hand of God.
If we believe and accept Jesus as our personal Savior, salvation is ours. He will forgive us our sins and seal us with the Spirit of God. Our name will be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and our sins remembered no more. We will have eternal life with Him in Heaven.
The only other option we have is to reject Jesus and die in our sins, unforgiven. Instead of eternity in Heaven, the alternative would be separation from God and eternity in hell. God has given us free wills. We all have to decide for ourselves what we will do with Jesus. We can either accept Him or reject Him.
