Jesus Wants to Save You, Not Condemn You
That message is this: Jesus Christ came to this earth to save you, not to condemn you. Because of Jesus Christ, the wrath of God the Father has been appeased. You may now approach the Father in the Name of Jesus and ask the Father to receive you into His family, and He will. Gladly.
While God the Father is the Judge, Jesus the Son is the Attorney who pleads your case before the Judge. When the Father sees that you have accepted Jesus, He acquits you of your sin and sets you free.
All you need to do to be saved is to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. You cannot save yourself. Your good works cannot save you. Only Jesus Christ can save you.
If we could be saved by our good works, we would not need a Savior. If we could be saved by our good works, how would we know if we had done enough good works to be saved? What is "good enough"?
No, the truth is that we are all in need of a Savior. And the good news is that Jesus has offered Himself as our Savior. Scripture says there is no greater love than this: that a man should lay down his life for another. Jesus laid down His life for you and for me. Now He offers you the gift of eternal salvation that He earned for you by laying down His life to pay the price for your sin.
You now have a choice to make. Will you accept Christ's gift of salvation or will you reject it?
I urge you to accept Christ's gift of salvation. Remember: He came to save you, not to condemn you. When you come to Him, He will never turn you away.
Come now! Do not delay, for today is the day of salvation for you!
