We live in a world that is gripped by fear. Fear of the unknown. Financial instability. Foreign invasion. Economic disaster. Cancer. The Coronavirus. These are very real concerns in our culture. But Jesus holds out His mighty hand in love, calling us to channel our fear into a complete and confident faith in Him. He is bigger than any threat, wiser than any expert, richer than any recession, and stronger than any disease. No matter what we face, we don’t have to live in fear; we can seek the face of our unchanging God! “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear,” (Psalm 46:1-2). Will you choose to trust in Jesus Christ with your future?
The truth is — there is something far worse coming than the temporal concerns that swirl about us today. The Bible is clear: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” (Hebrews 9:27). Your soul will go into eternity after this life. Are you ready for this? Every single one of us have been contaminated with sin and quarantined from Heaven. But there is a Cure! That is why I believe God has given you the opportunity to read this virtual Gospel tract — He wants to share with you His loving remedy.
OUR SINFUL CORRUPTION
No one is perfect; we have all done bad things — whether it was lying, stealing, cheating, thinking lustful thoughts, being disobedient to your parents, and many other things. The Bible says in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” We may consider ourselves to be “pretty good” compared to someone else, but each of us falls short of the perfection of God. No matter how hard we try, we will never be perfect.
The Bible says that there is a consequence for sin; and it is death. Romans 6:23 declares, “For the wages of sin is death…” This death is not only a physical death but a spiritual one. According to Revelation 21:8, “death” ultimately refers to spending eternity in Hell: “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.” But there is hope!
OUR SAVIOUR’S CROSS
Though our own sins separate us from God, He does not want anyone to die and go to Hell. Jesus Christ courageously and lovingly went up Calvary’s hill to die on an old rugged cross — to take away our sins and bring us salvation. John 3:16 proclaims, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Jesus willingly shed His sinless blood and gave His life as a sacrifice for you and me. He died, victoriously rose again from the grave, and now freely offers to us the ONLY REMEDY for sin! You cannot buy your way to Heaven, nor can you earn it through other alternatives such as good works or baptism (as other religions teach). It is ONLY through Jesus. God’s Word is clear: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works,”(Ephesians 2:8-9). “For there is NONE OTHER NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we MUST be saved” (Acts 4:12). Jesus says, “I am the way,… no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
OUR SIMPLE CHOICE
God promises in Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Will you acknowledge your sinful guilt, turn to Jesus, and accept His Cure? Jesus stands with His arms opened wide in love, waiting for you to come to Him by faith and accept Him as your personal Saviour! According to the Bible, if you were to receive Jesus, where will you go when you die? The exciting answer is Heaven! But, if you were to reject Jesus and never accept what He did on the Cross for you, where will you spend eternity? The sobering answer is Hell.
OUR SINCERE CALL
Why not call upon the Lord right now and ask Him to save you? Please pray sincerely from your heart:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I’m a sinner. I know I deserve the eternal consequences for my sins. But I don’t want to die and go to Hell; I want to be with You in Heaven. I believe You died on the Cross and rose again for me. Please forgive me of my sins and come into my heart. I accept Your gift of salvation. I trust You alone as my Saviour to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank You, God, for your love and for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
The Bible plainly teaches that you can never lose your salvation. You will always be saved! Ephesians 1:13 describes it as being “sealed.” If you just accepted Christ in your heart, your name was written down in Heaven’s “Book of Life,” and nothing can or ever will erase it! Jesus gives reassurance that those who trust in Him: “I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” (John 10:28).
