Day 2 - BTG Follow-up - Who do YOU say Jesus is?

Remember the soul-searching question of all time - "Who do you say that I am?" Mark 8:29

If Jesus asked you that question, what would you honestly be able to say?

Today we just want to make sure that you know you have made the MOST IMPORTANT decision of your whole life - salvation. Remember that you must first accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior to be able to pursue a deeper relationship with Him!

Here is your project for Day 2:
~ Read through the plan of salvation with an open heart. Make sure that you understand what it means and that you have made that decision yourself.
~ Write out your salvation testimony. (We would love to have you e-mail it to us!)

Plan of salvation:
~ God created us to walk with Him and glorify Him.
~ We all have sinned - thought, said, done wrong things. Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
~ God is holy and He cannot have sin in His presence. Our sin separates us from the fellowship we were meant to have with God and destines us for eternity in hell apart from God.
~ Jesus - the perfect Son of God - came to earth to die on the cross, to take the punishment for our sins, so that we could be right with God and spend eternity in Heaven with Him. John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
~ If you realize sin and need for a Savior, confess your sin to God, repent and turn from it and put trust in Jesus as your Lord and Savior - giving your life over to Him - you will be saved.
~ It is a choice we all need to make!!! Do not take it lightly!!! All of eternity depends upon your choice.
Rom. 10:9-11 - "...if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, "Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame."

Have YOU accepted God’s gift of salvation through Jesus? He does this because He wants to have a relationship with you, you to be fulfilled in His love, and to glorify Him with your life!
