God’s Bridge

God’s Purpose:   Honor and Serve HimGodsbridge

God created man to honor, serve and fellowship with him.  The Bible says… “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for Thou has created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.”  Revelation 4:11

Mankind’s problem: Sin

Man chose to sin against God rather than serve him.  The Bible says… “Far all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”  Romans 3:23

hellSin’s Penalty: Death

The Bible says… “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Then how can we ever have eternal life?

Throughout history individuals have tried many ways to gain or earn eternal life, but every attempt has been unsuccessful.  The  Bible says… “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8, 9

Christ’s payment: Our Sinless Substitute

Jesus Christ, God’s sinless son, was sent by the Father to pay the penalty for our sins by dying on the cross in our place.  The Bible says… “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

Our pardon: Turn and Trustsalvation

How do we cross the bridge to eternal life? We must receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Jesus himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”  John 14:6.  In order to receive Jesus Christ as Lord, you must repent of your sins and put your trust in Jesus Christ alone as the only hope of eternal life.  The Bible says… “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.”  Acts 3:19a

God’s promise: Eternal Life

Jesus Christ said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”  John 5:24

Will you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?

To do so you must…

  • Admit that you have sinned against God and ask Him for forgiveness.
  • Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God Who died for you on the cross, rose from the dead, and is Lord. 
  • Call upon Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior.
