Genesis 1: 1 " In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."
You are special to God because He created you to be like Him.
Genesis 1: 26-27 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his (own) image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
God gave man the breath of life.
Genesis 2:7 "And the LORD God formed man (of) the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul;
God placed man in the Garden of Eden and gave him
Genesis 2:16-17 "And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shall not eat of it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."
Every person is an offspring of Adam and Eve.
Genesis 3:20 "And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living."
Because of the sin of Adam all men are sinners.
Romans 5:12 "Wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned."
Every person must give an account.
Romans 14: 11-12 "For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord; every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God. So then everyone of us shall give account of himself to God."
God requires payment for all sin.
Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death (eternal separation from God in the lake of fire) but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
But God made a way for us, through His son Jesus Christ, to pay our sin debt.
John 3: 16 "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 loves you so much that He laid down His life for you.
1 Cor. 15:3-4 "... 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."
Jesus said you must be born again to go to Heaven.
John 3:3 "Jesus answered and said to him, Verily, verily, I say to thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
How can I be born again?
Romans 10:9-10 "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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
There is joy in Heaven over a sinner that repents of his
Luke 15:10 "Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth."
Dear friend, Jesus loves you. Salvation is a free gift. Jesus paid your sin debt on the cross at calvary. Will you now by faith trust Him and Him alone for your Salvation? If so, from your heart in your own words will you pray and ask Jesus to forgive and save you? From your heart pray the following prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus: Forgive me a sinner. I believe in my heart you died in my place to pay my sin debt, was buried, and God raised you up from the dead on the third day. Now you are alive with God. I trust you now as my Savior. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
