Everyone ever born is in need of accepting and believing the Gospel. There is no other way to have a relationship with God and spend Eternity in Heaven, but through Jesus Christ. Below is a summary of the truths of the Gospel as revealed in God’s Word, the Bible, summed up in the acronym, “FAITH.”
F is for Forgiveness
We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God’s forgiveness –
“In Him, (meaning Jesus) we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” Ephesians 1:7a
A is for Available
Forgiveness is available. It is – Available for all…
“For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
But not automatic…
“Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,” shall enter the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 7:21a
I is for Impossible
It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven.
Love – John 3:16 and He is: Just – For judgement is without mercy James 2:13a
Sinful – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
T is for Turn and for Trust
Turn from something – sin and self.
“But unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” Luke 13:3b
Turn to Someone; Trust Christ Only.
“Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:3b-4
“If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
H is for Heaven
Heaven is eternal life.
Christ gives life Here – “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10b
Christ gives life Hereafter (eternally) – “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” John 14:3
How can a person have God’s forgiveness, heaven and eternal life, and Jesus as personal Savior and Lord?
