God is inviting you to be part of the story He is writing throughout the ages to come. He is offering salvation to you today, which is your invitation to the rescue God offers. You can embrace the rescue of God by simply:
- Admitting your need to God
- Asking Him to forgive you
- Trusting in Jesus alone to rescue you
- Following Jesus Christ, The King of your life, in faith from this day forward
You have become part of His story. The more you grow in your relationship with God, the more of His story you will begin to see & understand in your life. All of your sin, past and future, is forgiven, and you now find total acceptance before Him. When you begin this relationship, Jesus promises to be with you through all the UPS and DOWNS and in the joys and difficulties of this life. He loves you with an EVERLASTING, unchanging love. And not only has He promised eternal life, but He came so that you could also experience purpose, fulfillment, and freedom in this life.
F IS FOR FORGIVENESS
Everyone has sinned and needs God’s forgiveness. His forgiveness is available in Jesus.
All have sinned and fall short of the glorify of God. Romans 3:23
In Him we have redemption through His blood the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace. Ephesians 1:7
A IS FOR AVAILABLE
God’s forgiveness is available to all, but it is not automatic.
God loved the world in this way, that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord” will enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 7:21
I IS FOR IMPOSSIBLE
According to the Bible it is impossible to get into heaven on our own.
By grace you are saved through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is God’s gift – not from works so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:18
So then, how can a sinful person have eternal life and enter heaven?
T IS FOR TURN
If you are going down a road, and someone asks you to turn, what would he or she be asking you to do?
CHANGE DIRECTION. GO A DIFFERENT WAY. REPENT
Unless you all repent, you will all perish as well. Luke 13:3
I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
If you confess with your mouth, that “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation. Romans 10:9-10
H IS FOR HEAVEN
Heaven is a place where we will live with God forever.
If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to myself so that where I am you may be also. John 14:3
Eternal life begins now with Jesus!
I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance. John 10:10
H CAN ALSO STAND FOR HOW
How can a person have God’s forgiveness, eternal life and heaven? By trusting Jesus as personal Savior and Lord.
Dear God, I know that You love me. I confess my sin and need of salvation. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and arose from the grave. I turn away from my sin and place my faith in Jesus as my Savior and Lord. I want to follow you with my life.
Read the Bible
The Bible is the story of God’s love and faithfulness to His people. It provides encouragement, instruction, warning, and correction that will help you make sense of your life. As you read it, ask God to show you something you can apply to your life. If you’re not sure where to begin, start with the Gospel of John in the New Testament.
Getting connected with others who have trusted in the rescue of God is essential. A “church” is a community of Christians gathering regularly to worship God as His family. Each member of the family plays a vital role: Similar to the human body, each part helps the whole body function properly. The church is the Body of Christ.
Talk with God
Talking with God is another way you will get to know Him. He is always ready to listen and spend time with you, so you can always speak with Him. He invites you to share all your burdens and joys with Him; this is prayer.
