Perhaps you found yourself on this page due to a recent message, blog post, or conversation with a friend. Maybe something going on in your life has led you to wonder what you need to do to be saved. This question is not a new one, as we see in scripture with those who came to Paul (Acts 16:30-33) and Nicodemus who came to Jesus (John 3) asking the same thing. Jesus responded by saying that we must be born again.

It's important to remember that Jesus came to earth for you and me (Luke 19:10). This is the foundation of the gospel. God's love for us is what brought Jesus to earth (John 3:16). The truth is that we are all sinners who need a savior (Romans 3:23; 6:23). On our own, there is no hope. But around 2,000 years ago, hope was born in a manger.

It was on the cross that God's son paid for our sins. As Romans 6:23 says, "but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." In Romans 5:8, we read, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Having a conversation with God is a simple yet profound act that can transform your life. Consider requesting His forgiveness for your sins and welcoming Him into your heart. Speak to Jesus as you would to a trusted friend, because He is a friend that will stick closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).

For the wages of sin is death, but the [a]gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.   Romans 6:23 NKJV

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.    Romans 5:8 NKJV

A man who has friends [a]must himself be friendly, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.     Proverbs 18:24 NKJV
