1. YOU MATTER
2. THE PROBLEM IS THAT WE HAVE ALL SINNED AND THAT SEPARATES US FROM GOD.
Regardless of what others say about you, Jesus loves you deeply and He hurts when you hurt.
Your journey may be more difficult than you thought and more lonely than it should be but you are not alone.
Your past doesn’t have to define your future… God gives second chances.
Even when people turn their back on you, God will never leave you.
Your life does have a purpose and you are significant.
No one is perfect, and when we choose to live for ourselves or do things that don’t line up with God’s laws, that’s called sin. Every single one of us, from the worst criminal to the most moral giving person you can think of, is imperfect and has sinned.
“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” (Romans 3:23)
The Bible says that “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23) and that means that all of us deserve death, no matter how good we try to be.
God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.
He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins.
“ But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” (Romans 5:8)
Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life — of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior.
“But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God..” (John 1:12) You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come into your life as your Lord and Savior.
If you want to accept Christ and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying this prayer:
“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you into my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always.”
