Life's Most Important Question

Where Do I Stand in the Sight of God?
This question is the most important one you can ask in life. In order to know where you stand in the sight of God you must understand the gospel of G.R.A.C.E. and experience that gospel of God's G.R.A.C.E. for yourself...
 
G...stands for GOD
- God is the beginning of GRACE. In fact, He is the beginning of all things (Genesis 1:1).
- God, our Creator, is a God of holiness and love.
- Because God is our loving Creator and Ruler, we are responsible to love, worship, and obey Him alone (Matthew 22:37-38).
 
R...stands for REBELLION
- Clearly, all of us fall short of God's perfect standard (Romans 3:23).
- We are all sinners, both by nature and by choice (Romans 5:12; 1 John 1:8).
- Our sins have separated us from our Creator (Isaiah 59:2).
- Because sin separates us from God, it carries tragic consequences (Romans 6:23).
 
A...stands for ATONEMENT
- Atonement means "to repair a broken relationship." God, because of His great love for His creation, sent His Son - Jesus - into the world so that sinners may be reconciled to Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:1).
- By His life, Jesus attained righteousness on sinners' behalf. By His death, Jesus paid the penalty that sinners owed. By His resurrection, Jesus defeated death for all who will follow Him.
 
C...stands for CONVERSION
- To receive Jesus as Savior and Lord, we must trust in Him alone for salvation (John 14:6; Acts 4:12).
- And we must turn from our sins (repent) and turn to Him in love and obedience (Luke 13:3; John 14:15; Acts 17:30).
- God's GRACE comes to those who receive Jesus by faith (John 1:12; Acts 16:31; Romans 1:16; Romans 10:9; Romans 10:13).
 
E...stands for ETERNAL LIFE
- Jesus brings new life to all who place their faith in Him (John 10:10; 2 Corinthians 5:17).
- This wonderful gift of eternal life is given to all who have been saved through faith in Jesus.
The Most Important Question...
 
"Where Do I Stand in the sight of God?"
- On the cross, Jesus suffered the justice and wrath of God on behalf of all those who trust Jesus as Savior and Lord. On the other hand, those who do not trust Jesus as Savior and Lord will suffer the judgment of God themselves (John 3:36). There is no middle ground with Jesus (Matthew 12:30).
 
ARE YOU READY?
If so, then you must repent of your sins and place your faith in Jesus alone for salvation. You must believe that Jesus lived, died and rose again for your salvation. You must commit your life to Jesus as your living Savior and Lord. If you are ready to have your sins forgiven and to receive the gift of eternal life, then trust in Jesus right now!
