Who is God and why do I need Him? I’m just fine on my own!
I will worry about God later, much later.
I have plenty of time to worry about “getting right with God”.
God?? Who needs that hassle?
I need a life, not a jail cell.
Why would I want to give my life to a God that will not let me have any fun?
Have you ever lied, even once? The answer had better have been yes…or you just lied. Ever say anything hurtful to someone? Ever steal anything, no matter the circumstance or how small the item was?
How about adultery? Ever kill someone? Ever have sexual relations outside of marriage? These are all sins.
It only takes one sin to be guilty before God. What happens because of even one sin? The punishment for even just one sin is eternal life without God in hell. There will be no comfort, there will be no parties, and you will not be spending the hours, days, weeks, years…forever with your buds. No you will be spending all your time completely free from that God you had no time for…in a state of perpetual suffering, alone. There will be no enjoyment in hell, and no second chance when you realize you made a mistake…the mistake of not accepting God as your Lord and Savior.
After you die, you will live again. Say what??? Yes you will live again regardless of what you believe. This is all in the Bible; these are not my thoughts but the facts from the Word. The only question is, where are you going to be spending all your time when you are resurrected at the end?
Everyone has sinned no matter who they are. The difference is some have accepted Christ and His incredible offer of forgiveness and some have not. I have sinned, I have also accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior…therefore I will spend eternity in heaven with God Himself. This is in no way because of anything I have done, I am an imperfect sinful man and remember it only takes one sin to be sentenced to death. Accepting Jesus frees me from paying that penalty, Jesus Christ paid it for me.
If you do not accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then you are sentencing yourself to eternity in hell.
The awesome thing is…you need only admit your sinfulness to God and ask His forgiveness. Believe in the fact that Jesus died on the cross to pay for your sins and that He was resurrected to life on the third day and is even now alive and seated at the right hand of the Father. Accept Him as Lord and Savior, and you will be forgiven and saved…you will posses eternal life. Eternal life is yours right now, not later, not after you die, right now…as soon as you accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Yes you will need to make some changes in your life, but the changes are for your own good anyway. The changes that God desires you to make will actually grant you freedom, not enslave you. I drank to excess, that was not freedom as the world thinks it is, that was a bondage to a horrible life. I do not drink anymore thanks to God, that is freedom! Whatever you struggle with, God can help you too.
Do not wait to accept Christ; you never know when your last day is going to be. Accidents happen, but it will be no accident that you did not choose Jesus, that is a choice and not a good one. You will never ever hear a Believer say that they are sorry they accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior.
It is not that life will be perfect and you will not have any problems anymore after accepting Christ. It is this; Jesus will be with you through those problems and trials. You can depend on God to never forsake you; you cannot say that about any human. God will give you strength to carry on; He will love you…after all He gave His only Son up to death so that you and I could have life.
