Not with all the value of the indulgences, deeds, sacrifices and offerings of the most famous religions could ever be bought one single, eternal soul for heaven (Mark 8: 36).
But the five or six liters of the precious blood that God the Son made man, shed on the cross, dying in our place, were enough to clean potentially the sins of all mankind (Matthew 26: 28 – Colossians 1: 14 – Hebrews 9: 22 – Leviticus 17: 11).
"Because the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, purifies us from all sin " (1 John 1: 17).
Nailed on the cross, bleeding for our sins, the Creator of the universe, took upon himself the sins of all (1 Peter 2: 24), " for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3: 23), says: "It is finished" (mission accomplished) (John 19: 30).
In this way He paid our debt with His precious blood, and he puts at our disposal the reconciliation with God the Father (1 Peter 1: 18-19, Hebrews 10: 10-14, 2 Corinthians 5: 18-19, Romans 5: 9 – 11, Colossians 1: 20-22).
Since then, every person that receives the sacrifice of the Lamb of God (Jesus Christ) as complete and sufficient, God adopts him lovingly as a son, and gives him eternal life in the kingdom of heaven (John 1: 29 – John 1: 12).
Maybe you cannot understand so much love from Him, however, it is a fact that " God (the Father) so loved the world, that He gave us His one and only Son (Jesus, God the Son) that whoever (you) believes in Him, shall not perish (in hell), but have eternal life (in heaven)" (John 3: 16).
Beloved reader, He opened the doors of heaven for you on the cross of Golgotha! (John 14: 2). Will you stay outside? (Revelation 21: 27) Or will you believe in the word of Jesus? He said: "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved " (Acts 2: 21).
With sincerity, say your own prayer, or pray like this:
Lord Jesus, I confess with my mouth that You are the Lord, and I believe in my heart that God raised You from the dead (Romans 10: 9, 10).
And I proclaim myself saved by faith, for you said I would be (Ephesians 2: 8, 9). You are God, and you don't lie (Numbers 23: 19).
I now that I am a sinner, and I repent and I confess you that I need your salvation and forgiveness (1 John 1: 9) . Please, forgive me and save me. From now I receive you as my personal Saviour and I make you my Lord.
My God and my Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for having shed your precious blood and had died for me. I believe that after three days you resurrected for my justification, and later ascended to heaven, where you always intercede for me before the Father (Romans 4: 25 – Luke 24: 6, 7, 51 – 1 Corinthians 15: 3, 4 – Hebrews 7: 25) .
Please, help me to be faithful until the end. Amen.
