"This is the judgment,
that the Light has come into the world,
and men loved the darkness rather than the Light,
for their deeds were evil."
“There is none righteous, not even one;
There is none who understands,
There is none who seeks for God;
All have turned aside,
Together they have become useless;
There is none who does good,
There is not even one."
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
“By the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.”
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”
“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you have been saved.”
“…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved….”
There are no magic words to pray. You don't need a priest or minister to carry out some spiritual rite for you. You can, right now, turn away from your sin, commit your life to Jesus, and receive the gift of eternal life.
