VerseD: Matthew 18:3-5

and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me”
Matthew 18:3‭-‬5, ESV

Children often admit they need help and know they don’t know everything.
Approach Christ this way.
We don’t know how deep our sin is or how salvation works, but we need Christ to save us.

VerseD: John 3:16

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
John 3:16, ESV

To be saved from sin and God’s wrath, we must believe that Jesus is the perfect Son of God who died for our sins and rose again to life.
There is no other way to eternal life.

VerseD: Acts 2:21

“‘And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.'”
Acts 2:21, ESV

It does not say “everyone shall be saved.” It says “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

It is not enough to just go to church.

Believe for yourself. Today.

VerseD: Hebrews 11:6

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
Hebrews 11:6, ESV

You cannot be saved without believing God exists, the Son came bodily and without sin to die for our sin, rose again to life, and will return to earth to spend eternity with His faithful servants.

VerseD: Romans 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17, ESV

Faith in Christ primarily comes from the preaching of the Gospel from the Scriptures.

Know the Gospel. Believe it. Share it with others that they may be saved.

VerseD: John 1:12

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
John 1:12, ESV

We may all be made in God’s image, but we are not all His children.

We become children of God by believing that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God who takes away the sins of the world.

VerseD: 1 John 2:6

whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.
1 John 2:6, ESV

How did Jesus walk?

He loved the lost, rebuked the religious haughty, and served all to the point of death.

Go and do likewise.
