From Death to Eternal Life

"Can anyone tell me why
Jesus Christ had to die,
if by us being a good person
or by our good works
we could make it to Heaven
on our own, without accepting
Him as our Savior."

Some people think receiving
Jesus as your Savior
is only about going
from bad to good,
but it is also about
going from dead to alive;
because making good choices
is a lifetime effort
but when Jesus shed
His Righteous blood
He took all the sins
of the world upon Himself;
because He died
we don't have to work
our way to Heaven,
Jesus worked His way to us
when He shed His Righteous blood
for a sinful world,
and when He rose from the dead
by the power of the Holy Spirit<
he offers us that same power
when we repent of our sins
and ask Him to be our Savior.

I'm not saying not to be good,
although He will help you to be good
after He gives you Life,
because God is all things good,
but you don't have to be good to come to Him,
He receives you just as you are, a filthy sinner,
and in His Righteous blood you will be
a new person in Christ; before dead in your sins,
now alive in Christ, invite Him into your Heart
to be your Savior.

"And this is the testimony, that God has given
us eternal life, and this life is in His Son."..
I John 5:11.
"He that has the Son has life, he that doesn't
have the Son doesn't have life."...I John 5:12.
