God promises that if you will believe in Jesus - not just in His existence, but in His mission and message - He will give you eternal life!
His Mission - to take our place by bearing in his body the punishment for our sins
"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree (the cross)." ~1 Peter 2:24
His Message - that He is the only way to the Father (God)
"I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." ~John 14:6.
His Motive - LOVE FOR YOU!!
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." ~John 15:13
The Good News is that you can trust Christ as your Savior right now and become a Christian! You can pray a prayer similar to this one:
"God, I know I am a sinner and that Christ alone can save me. I repent of my sinful life. I believe Jesus Christ died for me and I’m trusting Him now as my Savior."
