Jesus is the most important person in my life, and I don’t know what I would do without Him. I was about ten years old when I understood that He died (and came back to life) for me so that I could be friends with God. These verses explain more:
All have sinned
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
The penalty of sin
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
The penalty paid by Christ
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly… but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
How can I be sure?
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
It’s as simple as A, B, C – Admit, Believe, Commit.
