Bible Hope 1/19/20 – Pastor James Eakins


“Bible Hope” Text verse(s) Hebrews 6:19. Pastor James Eakins preaching at Ozark Full Gospel Church.

HOW TO HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST

CONFESS THAT YOU ARE A SINNER: The Bible says, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” (Romans 3:10). The bible also says “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) By these passages we can see that we have all sinned and fall short of God’s standard.

REALIZE THAT YOU CANNOT SAVE YOURSELF: We cannot save ourselves, if we could then Jesus didn’t have to die! Salvation is by God’s grace alone. “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

UNDERSTAND SIN MUST BE PAID FOR: The bible says very clearly in Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death…” For example when you work a job you agree to a wage, and you expect to be paid for your work. In the same respect the wages of sin will surely be paid, and those earnings are death. Thankfully God gave us a way out! The rest of Romans 6:23 says. “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

ACKNOWLEDGE CHRIST’S PAYMENT FOR SIN: Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for your sins. (Romans 5:8) says “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” you could read it like this; “But God commendeth His love toward ME, in that, while I was yet a sinner, Christ died for ME.” Jesus died in your place and your sin debt has been paid for by, “The blood of Jesus Christ.” (1John 1:7)

ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR: The Bible says, (Romans 10:9-10) “if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. The Bible is very clear that you can be saved! “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)

PRAY THIS PRAYER TO GOD TODAY: Heavenly Father, I’m a sinner, I’m lost and I need to be saved. I can’t save myself. I’m sorry for my sins. I believe that you died for me, and rose again from the grave. Come into my heart, forgive my sins, and save me. By faith I receive your free gift of salvation. Change me forever, begin now to make me the person you want me to be. Help me never to be ashamed of You. Thank You for saving me, Jesus. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

If you sincerely make this your heartfelt prayer, Just like the Bible says, God will save you!
