The Free Gift of Salvation
To receive God's free gift of salvation,
you must understand these few things from the Bible.
EVERYONE IS A SINNER
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." The reason that we "come short" of God's glory (God's righteousness or perfect nature) is because "All have sinned." "All" includes me and it also includes you. First of all, you must agree with the Bible and admit that you are a sinner.
EVERYONE OWES A SIN-DEBT
Romans 6:23a "For the wages (penalty or debt) of sin is death." This is speaking of eternal death which is also called "The second death." REVELATION 20:14 "And death and Hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death." Secondly, you must realize that if you die in your sin, then you must pay the penalty for sin by spending eternity in Hell.
