I must tell you this

I know something so wonderful that I must tell you!  It is so vital that it may change your entire future as it did mine.  In fact, the decision you make about it will affect you both in life and death.

Let me emphasise that this message is absolutely true, because God said it.  When God makes a promise you can rest upon it, because His promises can never fail.  God will not make you believe this message.  That is your choice, but He will hold you responsible for having heard it.  It is a very personal message, something you must decide.  You must say either, "I will" or "I will not."

Here is the message.  It is an exact quotation from God's word, the Holy Bible.  "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).  Did you ever hear such wonderful words?  Think for a moment what they say.  They reveal three marvellous facts.

First, "God so loved the world.”   Since you are in the world, He loved you.  If that doesn't astonish you, remember, that when God loved you, He loved a sinner.  (Romans 3:23).  If you are honest, you will agree.  Although God loves you, He still hates your sin.  Since God is holy, He must punish sin.  He had to make a holy way of saving sinners.  Otherwise, the sinner must pay for his sins, and that would mean spending eternity in hell. (Revelation 20:15).

The second great fact is "He gave his only begotten Son."  God loved you so much, that He sent His Son to earth to become a man and die on the cross of Calvary, so that you could be saved.

You see, someone must pay the penalty of sin - either you or a sinless substitute.  God gave His Son, Jesus Christ, to be your sinless substitute.  He shed His blood so that your sins can be put away, so that you can have eternal life.

And now the third tremendous fact is "Whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."   Think of it.  God gives eternal life to those who believe in Jesus Christ.  The Saviour has "finished" the work.  He has died.  He has risen from the grave, and He has gone back into heaven.  Now your part is to believe in Him.

This simply means that you must agree that you are a sinner, realise that Christ has paid the "full" penalty for your sins, and then receive Him as your Lord and Saviour.

This is the message which I had to tell you.  Now, you must make a decision.  Will you accept Him, or reject Him?  Think of it once again: "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).

Your time on earth is short, but your decision for Christ lasts for eternity.  Will you receive Jesus Christ as your Saviour and be confident of everlasting life?
