Welcome! My name is Susan Osten, and I would like to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with you. God eagerly desires a loving relationship with you, but sin separates us from God:
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans 3:23 (KJV)
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23 (KJV)
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 (NKJV)
Do you want to be at peace with God?
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our LORD Jesus Christ,” Romans 5:1 (NIV)
But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives!
“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,” 1 Corinthians 15:3-5 (NIV)
Jesus is the only way to God.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John14:6 (KJV)
Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins, and ask for His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty.
If you wish to ask Jesus into your heart, please pray the following prayer:
Jesus, I acknowledge that You are the Son of God. I believe You died on the cross at Calvary, where You shed Your blood for my sins, and that You rose from the grave and conquered death. I repent of my sins, and I ask You to forgive me for my sins. Please change my heart to be like Yours – full of love and forgiveness. Help me to obey Your teachings in the Bible. Please be my Savior and my Lord. Thank You for extending Your grace to me, and for saving me from an eternity in Hell. Thank you for giving me a new life here on earth. Amen.
If you prayed the prayer above: you are now, God’s child. Pray to your heavenly Father: tell Him what kind of help you need.
“For it is with the heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Romans 10:10 (NIV)
May God’s grace and peace be with you.
In † Christian Love, Susan Osten
