Well, I have bad news and good news for you.

First, the Bad News

You have gone through the Ten Commandments and have admitted to breaking
some of them, unfortunately God does not grade on the curve. You will not
be judged by man’s standards but by His. This is the Bad News: God demands
perfection, one sin no matter how small must be paid in full by your
eternal death. You don’t have to break ten civil laws to have the police
after you. Just break one and you are a lawbreaker in debt to the law. The
same holds true for God’s Law. The Bible says, “For whosoever shall keep
the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all” James 2:10.

By your own admission you admitted that you have sinned. Bearing in mind
that God is perfect and that He has seen every thing you have ever done,
including your thoughts, when you stand before Him on Judgment Day will
you be innocent or guilty? You know you will be guilty, and be condemned
to Hell. Perhaps you don’t believe that. That means there’s more bad news
for you, because it will happen anyway, no matter what you believe. The
Bible says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this
the judgment” Hebrews 9:27.

Do you realize that you are guilty, and are condemned to Hell?

If you do then I have Good News for you!

According to the Bible, Jesus Christ is God, the second person of the
trinity, the Creator of the universe. The Bible says, “In the beginning
was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…the Word
was made flesh, and dwelt among us…” John 1:1,14. God came down in human flesh.

Jesus Christ took your punishment with his death on the cross, and then
He rose from the dead defeating the grave. That’s good news because if you
repent and trust Him, God will forgive you and grant you everlasting
life - what better news could there be! "God commended His love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners Christ died for us" Romans 5:8. Only by
living a perfect sinless life could Christ be worthy to bear our sins upon
the cross. The Bible says, “He made Him [Christ] who knew no sin to be sin
for us,” 1 Corinthians 5:21. Christ suffered the penalty for sin that
rightfully belongs to you. As a result of His sacrifice, Christ offers you
an abundant life right now and the assurance of everlasting life. “but the
gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord,” Romans 6:23b.

Question: “But what must I do to be saved?”

Answer: “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be
blotted out,” Acts 3:19 “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be
saved” Acts 16:31a. Believe means to trust in, rely on, and cling to the
person of Jesus Christ alone for salvation. To repent means a willingness
to turn away from your sin and turn to God.

Here is a sample prayer:

Dear God, I acknowledge that You are holy, righteous, and just. I confess
my sinfulness to You; I have repeatedly broken Your Law and deserve eternal
punishment. Forgive me for my sins and give me the grace to turn from my
selfishness and rebellion. Thank You for taking my place on the cross as
punishment for my sin. I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Please give me
the grace to live the kind of life that will glorify You in all that I say
and do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

If you have prayed to to receive Jesus Christ as your Saviour.
We would love to pray for you and celebrate in your decision:
