What is the truth about death? Death is a reality every one of us will have to face at some stage in our lives (if Jesus Christ does not come back beforehand). Have you considered what will happen when you die? Listen to a message by pastor John MacArthur (Grace to You) on the topic of death.
Is anyone perfect?
“As it is written: There is none righteous, no, not one;” (Romans 3:10 NKJV)
This means no one is perfect.
Is there any exception?
“… for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,…” (Romans 3:23 NKJV)
None of us meet God’s holy standard.
Where did sin come from?
“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned…” (Romans 5:12 NKJV)
Adam, the first person created by God, sinned and passed sin on to every human being.
What do we deserve for our sins?
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23 NKJV)
Because of our sins, we are supposed to die.
Who paid the price?
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8 NKJV)
What is the way out?
“… that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture says, “ Whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.” (Romans 10:9-11 NKJV)
For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13 NKJV)
Jesus is the only way out.
How can I get out?
By Salvation, which is as simple as A…B…C…
A – Admit you are a sinner,
B – Believe in your heart that Jesus died and rose from the dead,
C – Confess with your mouth that God raised Jesus from the dead, and that you accept Christ as the Lord of your life.
