The FACTS of Life:
Our lives are NOT pleasing to God:
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God"
One day we MUST answer to God for the lives we have lived:
"So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God"
BUT, death is not the end:
"It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment"
There was only ONE life pleasing to God - the Lord Jesus Christ:
"This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased"
So WHY did Jesus die? He took the sinner's place:
"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust"
What MUST I do for the sacrifice of Jesus to benefit me?
BELIEVE what He has done:
"The Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me"
REPENT of your sins (admit to God that you've been wrong):
"Repentance towards God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ"
What is the RESULT of believing?
"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus"
