Need a New Life?

  

                                           God created life.

 

God created everything.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”  Genesis 1:1

 

God created you.

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”  Genesis 1:27

 

                                         Sin destroys life.

 

Sin is living life your own way.

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteous-ness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,”  Romans 1:28-30

 

Everyone is guilty of sin.

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”  Romans 3:23

 

Sin destroys life because living your own way causes death.

“For the wages of sin is death,” Romans 6:23

 

God restores life through the gift of His son.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”  John 3:16

 

“Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.”  1 Corinthians 15:3b-4

 

God restores life when you stop living for yourself and start living for Him.

“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”  Acts 3:19

 

God restores life when you have faith in Him.

“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.”   Romans 10:9

 

If you want a new life, please pray this prayer to God:

“Dear Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the grave. I now ask you to forgive my sins and take control of my life.”
