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
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
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
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."
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
