The Bible presents a clear path to eternal life.
First, we must recognize that we have sinned against God:
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23
We have all done things that are displeasing to God, which makes us deserving of punishment. Since all our sins are ultimately against an eternal God, only an eternal punishment is sufficient.However, Jesus Christ, the sinless 1 Peter 2:22 eternal Son of God became a man (John 1:1,14) and died to pay our penalty. “God demonstrates His love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8. Jesus Christ died on the cross John 19:31-42, taking the punishment that we deserve 2 Corinthians 5:21
Three days later He rose from the dead 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, proving His victory over sin and death. “In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” 1 Peter 1:3.
By faith, we must change our mindset regarding Christ – who He is, what He did, and why – for salvation Acts 3:19.
If we place our faith in Him, trusting His death on the cross to pay for our sins, we will be forgiven and receive the promise of eternal life in heaven.
Faith alone in the finished work of Christ on the cross is the only true path to eternal life!
