“Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but He died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but He was raised to life in the Spirit.” I Peter 3:18

What was your life like before you accepted Jesus and asked Him to save you? You may have grown up as a Christian from a very young age. However, many people don’t accept Jesus until they are much older. Whatever your background, whatever your testimony -- God can use you to help others come to know, love, and follow Him. God will forgive anyone!

We All Sin

It can be a challenge to understand that everyone is impacted by sin. At first, people might not want to admit that sin rules their lives. But even Israel’s ancient King David, who was called “a man after [the Lord’s] own heart” (I Samuel 13:14), said, “I was born a sinner — from the moment my mother conceived me” (Psalm 51:5). The desire to sin is passed on to each human. We are all born with the urge to do what we want, rather than what God’s wants.

Jesus Brings Forgiveness

The only human who ever lived an entirely sinless life was Jesus Christ, who “is the visible image of the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15). God used Jesus Christ to pay the price for the sins of every human. Jesus taught that “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No-one can come to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). He declared, “I have come to call sinners to repentance” (Luke 5:32). Jesus is the only way a sinful human can be forgiven and come to God.

God is Faithful

We learn from the Bible that “if we confess our sins to [God], He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness” (I John 1:9). Anyone can come to God and be saved from their sins. Learn how to ask God to save you by clicking here. God will change your life if you repent (agree that your sin is wrong) and ask for forgiveness. Rely on Him because He can change your life. This is the Good News of Jesus Christ that you are invited to share with the world!
