The Ultimate Test

Subtitle

Would you consider yourself a GOOD PERSON?

According to Proverbs 16:2 most do.

But would you be good enough for heaven? The way to find out is to ask yourself if you have kept God's moral law, the ten commandments. Here's a quick test based on just four of those (Exodus 20:1-20). See how you do…

Have you ever told a lie, no matter how big? Have you ever stolen anything regardless of its value? Have you ever used God's name in vain (blasphemy)? Jesus taught that if you look with lust (sexually) you commit adultery in your heart. Have you looked with lust? Who can honestly say they have kept these commandments! (Romans 3:20-23). If you have done those things, God (who is Holy) sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart. And you will have to face God on Judgement Day! (Hebrews 4:12-13 and 9:27, Revelation 20:12).

You will be judged for every word, deed and thought.

If God judged you by His standards, would you be innocent or guilty on the day of judgement? If you're honest, you know you’d be guilty. Would you go to heaven or hell? Again, if you're honest, you know that by God's standards, you’d deserve hell. Hell is eternal with no hope of escape. But if God is loving won’t he just forgive you?

If God judged you by His standards, would you be innocent or guilty on the day of judgement? If you're honest, you know you’d be guilty. Would you go to heaven or hell? Again, if you're honest, you know that by God's standards, you’d deserve hell. Hell is eternal with no hope of escape. But if God is loving won’t he just forgive you?

Let's think that through.
Would a good judge let the guilty to free? No, that would be a corrupt judge! Because God is good he must punish sin. (Matthew 10:28; Matthew 25:41 & 46; Luke 16:19-31; Revelation 10:20-21:8).

However, while God is Holy and just and must punish sin, he is also “not willing that any should perish” (2 Peter 3:9). In His amazing grace and undeserved mercy God did something incredible! God himself came to earth in the person of Jesus Christ (God in the flesh).  He was born of a virgin, lived a perfect life and died on a cross for sinners. Jesus bore the penalty for sin in his body on the cross (1 Peter 2:24) and there was rejected by God (Mark 15:34).  He was rejected by God on the cross so that sinners who look to him for forgiveness (Hebrews 9:28), would not be rejected by God eternally in hell. 
Then, because Jesus was perfect (having defeated sin by living a perfect life) God raised him from the dead.  In his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ defeated sin and death so that sinners might escape the wrath of God.

His death was a sacrifice made in payment by God, on your behalf. You broke God's law, but Jesus paid your fine. "For God so loved the world [you] that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). Does everyone now have peace with God? Will all now go to heaven? No! (John 3:17-21 and 36).  Here's what you must do to have peace with God, to have your sins forgiven and escape eternal hell.
 

YOU CAN GET RIGHT WITH GOD... RIGHT NOW!


Jesus said, you must Repent and Believe the Gospel (Mark 1:15).  We'll explain what that means....

Gospel = the “Good News” that Jesus died for sinners. When you humble yourself before GOD, repent and trust in Jesus and his death to save you, God will forgive all your sin & give you eternal life (John 5:24-29).

Repent = to change your mind (in your attitude to God - admit He is Holy & you are sinful; the evidence of this change will be seen in a life that turns from sin to honouring God).

Believe = not just agree in your mind that the Gospel is true, but personally trust Jesus Christ to save you.

 No one gets to heaven by being good because no one is truly good! (Ephesians 2:8-10).

Peace with God begins with personal trust in Jesus Christ.                             
                                          
You can get right with God - Right Now!

Here's how...

Humble yourself before God... come before him with godly sorrow that knows the guilt and shame of sin.

Repent before God... admit that God is Holy, you are sinful and God is just to condemn you to hell

Believe the Gospel... personally trust Jesus Christ, right now, as your living Saviour, for forgiveness and eternal life.

This is what it means to Repent, and Believe the Gospel.

Start living your life from this day forward as a follower of Jesus Christ.  This is the true evidence of a saved life.

From this day on, start following Jesus as your Saviour.  Begin by reading Bible daily and obeying it. Trust God in all you do. (Romans 5:8-10; John 3:1-36; 1 John 1:7-9; Ephesians 2:16; Colossians 1:20; Luke 15:11-32; Luke 18:9-14)

What are these names and numbers?  these are Bible references. For example, here's what Luke 18:9-14 means.  Luke = a book in the Bible, 18 = chapter in that book, 9-14 = verses in the chap.
