What Qualifies You for Eternal Life?

THE QUALIFICATIONS FOR REDEMPTION
  •  You have lied or continue telling lies
  • You've lost everything you have in the recession
  • You are addicted to drugs or alcohol
  • You are living in sexual immorality 
  • You've murdered someone
  • Your heart is filled with hate 
  • You've been abused
  • You don't understand why people die
  • You've done everything wrong your whole life
  • You are hiding something 
  • You've hurt someone so bad and want forgiveness
  • You've hurt someone so bad but don't think you need forgiveness
  • You've lost your first love in Christ and you want to come back today
  • You think that you're not a sinner
  • You don't think you deserve it 
  • You know there has to me more than what you can see
If you read all of these and none of these people are you, then congratulations! You qualify because you are lying!  The Bible tells us there's not one righteous, NO NOT ONE!  And that is why Jesus Christ had to bear the sins of the World on the cross in order for us to be forgiven. The Apostle Paul made this absolutely clear here in Galatians 2:20-21 / 20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!” 

So the question remains how can you obtain eternal life? Ride bicycles and knock on doors ? NOPE! Go to confession and recite 8 billion hail Mary's? NOPE!!! Go to church every Sunday and check the box? NOPE! Give everything you own to the starving children? Unfortunately not!  There's just one way, be saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

If you need more info on Jesus before this prayer please search HISTORICAL JESUS on this page, Otherwise read this prayer and mean it in your heart and he will hear it and change you forever.

Dear Jesus, I know that I'm a sinner.
Please forgive me for what I've done.
I believe you died for the sins of the world 
and on the third day you were raised from the dead.
Please come into my life and forever change me 
in Jesus Christ name, amen!
