The time you spend on this earth is not even the blink of an eye compared to eternity, yet what you choose to believe in this life determines your everlasting destiny. It is your choice that determines where you will spend eternity. This is the most important decision you will ever have to make, so please consider it carefully.
What does it take?
A young woman that received the flyer asked; "What does it take to become a Christian?" Becoming a Christian is not about what you will do or what you shall achieve, but about what God has done and achieved for you. The following words are from the Bible:
"For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3, 16)
"What must I do to be saved? Paul the Apostle answered Him; Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved." (Acts 16, 30-31& 33)
God has made the method of salvation so simple that everyone can obtain it. If you choose to believe in Jesus, God will be your Father and you will become His beloved child, and be part of His heavenly and everlasting kingdom. The sacrifice of Jesus was the only way for God to bring us back to Him, because our sin separates us. But Jesus was willing to take our sin, to serve our sentence and He died for that on the cross. Everyone that chooses to believe in Him are thereby justified, saved and become true Christians. God then sees you through Jesus and you are without any sin or guilt from His point of view. It is a free gift from God to each of us. This is the amazing grace; the innocent One was sacrificed to justify the guilty ones.
"For by grace you have been saved though faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God." (Ephesians 2, 8).
"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name." (John 1, 12)
When Jesus was crucified, two more people were crucified together with Him, one at each side. One of them admitted that he was not only a sinner but also a criminal.
He said to Jesus; "Lord remember me when You come into Your kingdom". Jesus answered him; Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise." (Luke 23, 42-43)
