ARE YOU ON THE RIGHT ROAD?'s Testimony
ARE YOU ON THE RIGHT ROAD?To discover if we are on the right road we
need to start with:
The Bible goes on to teach us that God
created everything including you and me. In
the beginning the world He created was
perfect (no pain, no war, no suffering, no
death) and God said that it was good.
Alot has happened since that time and it
doesn’t take long to realise that things are no
longer perfect. This is because mankind (you
and me) decided to rebel against God, ignore
Him and live our lives however we please.
This rebellion is what the Bible calls ‘sin’.
“In the beginning God created...”
The Bible makes it clear that since God is
holy (perfect) and just He cannot overlook or
leave our lawbreaking unpunished. If He did
this He would be like a judge who let all
criminals go free. No good, righteous judge
would do that. To a holy God our sin is so
serious that He cannot and will not let it
enter His perfect heaven.
The truth is, none of us are good enough to
get to heaven and by our own efforts there is
nothing we can do to change this fact.
Fortunately God has done something
incredible for us.
The truth is that all of us are guilty...
“...all have sinned...” Romans 3:23
The Bible teaches us that we all have a nature
that is selfish and sinful. How many of the
following sins are you guilty of committing?
When we disobey God it shows that we
would rather live without His loving rule
over our lives. If this attitude continues until
death there are serious consequences...
Instead of giving us what we deserve God
actually wants to forgive us. He is not
wanting anyone to go to hell and has made
a way for us to be forgiven.
This forgiveness was made possible when
He sent Jesus Christ (the Son of God) to
earth to take the consequences of our
lawbreaking on Himself. Jesus willingly
suffered and died an agonising death on
the cross to take the consequences of our
lawbreaking on Himself. He was then
buried in a tomb and 3 days later God
bought Him back to life again. Through
Jesus death God has made a way for all of
us to be forgiven.
However, forgiveness is not automatic, like
any gift, we must personally receive it.
“Christ died for sins once for all...to
bring you to God.” 1 Peter 3:18

Jesus warned us about counting the cost
before deciding to follow Him...
He made it clear that we are to submit to
Him and be willing to face suffering and
tough times just like He did. However, as a
Christian, God will teach, encourage and
help you even in times of failure. As you
surrender control of your will to Him He
gives you new desires and the power to
change...this is a life long process.
If you have counted the cost of being a
Christian, want to become a follower of Jesus
and accept the gift He offers you then the
following is a suggested prayer...
“But don’t begin until you count
the cost...” Luke 14:28
Forgiveness cannot be earned! Going to
church, praying, living a ‘good’ life and
helping others are good things but none of
them can give you a perfect record before
God. To receive this forgiveness you must...
Admit that you have offended God by
your attitudes and actions.
Be willing to t
Trust that Jesus Christ died for your sins
(past, present and future) on the cross and
rose from the dead.
Through a prayer of faith (trust) give God
control of your life.
If you are willing to accept God’s gift of
forgiveness you must also accept the cost.
2. Accept that you can do nothing to save
urn away from anything that
offends God (God will help you do this).
I confess that I have rebelled against You
and am truly sorry. I want to start living
my life Your way. Thank You for dying on
the cross to take the punishment for my
sins (past, present and future). Please
forgive me, enter my life and make me the
person You want me to be,Amen.
To help you grow as a Christian, read the
Bible daily, obey what it says, join a Bible
believing church and tell someone about
your decision. Talk to God as much as
possible, He hears and answers prayer.
