This Should Be the Day

There is only one way to escape God's judgment, and that is by faith in Jesus Christ. Hebrews 11:6 tells us, "Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him". When we trust that Jesus is the only perfect human being who ever lived and accept Him as our Lord and Savior, God gives us credit for the perfect life He lived.

Maybe you know about God but do not know God. The first step in knowing God is accepting Jesus as your Savior. God's Son came and dwelt among us, knew no sin, paid the sacrifice for our sins on the cross, rose three days later, and now sits at the right hand of God interceding on our behalf. If you have ever wanted to know how to receive Jesus as your Savior, here is a simple plan of salvation that will lead you to the cross of Jesus.


God loves you! "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life". (John 3:16).

God has a wonderful plan for your life! "I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly". (John 10:10).

Because of your sin, you are separated from God. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". (Romans 3:23).

The penalty for sin is death. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord". (Romans 6:23).

The penalty for your sin was paid for by Jesus Christ! "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us". (Romans 5:8).

If you repent of your sin, confess and trust Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you will be saved from your sins! "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation". (Romans 10:9-10). "For 'whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved". (Romans 10:13).

No matter what you have done wrong, God will forgive you.


You're forgiven. How relieving is it to hear those words after you ask for forgiveness from a loved one for what you did wrong! God offers the same words to you. No matter what you have done wrong, God will forgive you. Nothing you've done is outside of God's forgiveness. God's forgiveness is like putting your sin as far away as the east is from the west". (Psalm 103:12). When God forgives you, He welcomes you into His presence where there is joy and pleasure forever. Ephesians 1:7 says, "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace". You can receive God's forgiveness and have your greatest turning point today.

To receive God's forgiveness, simply ask Him to forgive you for your sin. Here is a simple suggestion for your prayer:

Lord Jesus, I'm like everyone else-I can't make it through life on my own. I'm imperfect. I'm prone to sin. I have come to realize that there's nothing in the world I can do to make myself acceptable to You. But I know that You have loved me so much that You were willing to submit to the cross and die on my behalf. That's a grace so amazing I cannot understand it. I can only accept it. And I do. I accept Your free gift, and I know that from this moment on, I am saved. I am a child of God. And I give the rest of my life to serving You and experiencing the joy that only You can offer. I thank You and praise You! Amen.
