Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
We have all sinned. The bible says that not one is righteous, no one is without sin.
Romans 6:23a "...The wages of sin is death..."
We will all die one day physically. What is even worse is that some people will die spiritually. The bible says that those who reject Christ and live apart from Him are spiritually dead. The bible teaches that those who reject Christ will ultimately end up in hell.
Romans 6:23b "...But the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Salvation is a gift from God there is absolutely nothing you can do to earn it.
Romans 5:8, "God demonstrates His own love for us, in
that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us!"
Christ paid my penalty, he took my place on the cross. He died on the cross so that we might be reconciled to God. Now God sees Christ perfect life and puts it on me. I am forgiven. I am made new.
Romans 10:13 "Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved!"
Romans 10:9,10 "...If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation."
God knows our heart. Salvation is not a magic trick or an exact prayer. Salvation is available for anyone who will trust Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Romans 5:1 "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."
Because of Jesus finished work on the cross we can have a relationship with God. In the same way we will never be condemned for our sins.
1 Timothy 1:16
But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.
