crossWe all are sinners, you have sinned, I have sinned, we all are unrighteous in the eyes of a righteous God:

Romans 3:10 "There is none righteous, no not one."

Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."

crossSome day we will die, people die in the world. The penalty of sin is death. However, believing in Jesus Christ can give us escape from death and give us eternal life to your soul:

Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

crossJesus Christ saved us from the lake of fire and saved our souls from death by dying on an old rugged cross for us. He was born of the Holy Spirit and died for us. Jesus died for us because He loved us.

Romans 5:8 "For God commended His love toward us that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

crossJesus took on our sins or our transgressions and carried them to the cross so we can have eternal life. Our body may be buried in the ground some day, but our everlasting soul can escape the fire of hell and go to Heaven to be with Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 9:27 "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"

Hebrews 9:28 "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."

crossAll people who do not have their name written down in the Book of Life will be thrown into the lake of fire:

Revelation 20:15 "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."

Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

crossWe can escape the lake of fire, eternal damnation by believing in Jesus Christ. All we have to do is to confess our sins before Jesus, believe in our heart, and confess with our mouths that we know Jesus Christ and that we are saved. We have the 3 R's of salvation:

Realize you are a sinner.

Repent of your sins.

Recieve Jesus Christ into your heart.

Romans 10:9 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

Romans 10:10 "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

Romans 10:11 "For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed."

crossJesus gives us all a free gift to escape the eternal lake of fire. Once we accept Jesus Christ, His Spirit lives with us and strengthens us. We become a new person, behold all things have now become new:

2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."

crossOur names are then written down in the Book of Life and we avoid eternal death or the second death:

Revelation 20:15 "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."

crossJohn 3:16 tells us that we have eternal life through Jesus Christ and John 14:6 tells us that only Jesus Christ is the way to eternal life. If you have any questions please email me at: Patrick or my church's website London Bridge Baptist Church.
