The Most Important Decision 
 

  Hell was prepared for the devil and his angels, but because many will not believe and obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ, there is no other place for them to go.God created all people with a spirit that never dies, so those who disbelieve or do not obey the Gospel of Christ actually condemn themselves to hell. It is mankind's own fault! God wants no one to perish in hell for all eternity, but he still allows a person the choice to decide for himself.

 Christ Saves Sinners

God did not create us like a puppet on a string that is forced to love Him, but with a will that can choose to obey (love) or disobey (hate) Him. Only this kind of love is true because it allows the person to make a choice. God made the Gospel so easy even a child can understand it, so there is absolutely no excuse! God has provided the gift of salvation. Have you received this most precious free gift?

 God's Gift

 
John 3:16
 A gift must be freely given and then taken by the person to whom it has been given.
 God has given every person a choice to receive this precious gift of His Son Jesus Christ. If you have never received this most precious gift from God, it is yours by asking, and then receiving it by faith. This gift is by far the most precious gift of all gifts, because it is eternal life in heaven forever! No other gift even comes close! Think of it this way, everyone on the face of this earth has a very exciting inheritance that we are all responsible to receive. It is an inheritance much more wonderful and superior than millions of dollars, a new mansion, or a new car.

 Jesus is the only way to heaven!
 If you were to inherit a million dollars for example, I'm sure you would go to receive or claim it. The inheritance that we have in heaven, we must also receive or we will not have it. We have to receive eternal life the way God has told us in His word. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of ourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast" (Eph 2:8-9).

 How God's Gift Works

 Jesus Christ never committed a single sin, yet He was put to a cruel death on the cross. He suffered this knowing that His death would be for payment for the sins of anyone who would ask, so they could be brought back to a holy God.God is fair and just. He won't take away anyone's free will while they live. So, they must ask Him to save them from hell. By asking this, a person will acknowledge his or her sin and its consequences, the desire to change, and the power of Jesus Christ to save them. They will grant Jesus permission to make the necessary changes in their life. This is called repentance. God knows all our hearts, whether or not we believe and are truly sincere.

 Roman 10:9-10
 Read these verses from God's Word: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:10) and "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3).
