God's Plan Of Salvation
God created man in His perfect image but man rebelled against God and sinned and now every person is born with a sinful nature. This sinful rebellion and sin nature came with a great price. ďThe wages of sin is deathĒ Death is usually thought of as our bodies ceasing to have life but death is much more. When a person dies, their soul still exists and will spend all of eternity either in Heaven with Almighty God or in a very real place of torment called Hell. It is not God's will that anyone should perish and go to Hell. God wants every person to spend eternity with Him, but He lets each person decide for themselves.
God is Holy. He is completely good. In order for a sinful person to live forever with God, that person must be cleansed and forgiven of their sins. God knew that man could never cleanse himself, so He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth. Jesus had no sin but was crucified on a cross and gave His own life to pay the price for the sins of everyone. Jesus died but arose from the grave. Jesus conquered death. Jesus now sits in Heaven with God the Father. God wants you to sit with Him in Heaven too. Godís plan is simple. If you want to live forever then do the following.
