Precious child, 

God loves you! 

He loves you so much 

that He sent His only Son Jesus,

to die for your sins.

Sins are when we disobey God.

It hurts Him when we don't listen

and obey Him,

so He sent Jesus to die for our sins,

so that we can have a relationship with God

and spend eternity with Him in heaven.


God took your punishment and placed them on Jesus,

so that your sins could be forgiven.


God gives eternal life to those who come to Him by faith.

Faith is believing even though you don't see it.

It's like when your grandma gives you a gift 

and you take it from her hands. 

It then becomes yours,

the moment that you receive it.

So it is with God's gift of eternal life.


The first ABC block to being saved is to:


A-  Admit that you are a sinner,

         that you have disobeyed God.


The scripture says,

"For all have sinned,

and come short of the glory of God."

     ~ Romans 3:23


The second block is to:

B- Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.


"For God so loved the world,

that he gave his only begotten Son,

that whosoever believeth in him

should not perish,

but have everlasting life."

~ John 3:16


The third block is to:

C- Call upon the name of the Lord.

"...that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."

                  ~ Acts 2:21b


"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,

and shalt believe in thine heart

that God hath raised him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved."

                ~ Romans 10:9


Don't fall asleep without Jesus

until you are assured of a place in heaven.


Tonight, if you would like to receive the gift of eternal life

first you must believe in the Lord.

You have to ask for your sins to be forgiven

and put your trust in the Lord.

To be a believer in the Lord, ask for eternal life.

There's only one way to heaven and that's through the Lord Jesus.

That's God's wonderful plan of salvation.


You can begin a personal relationship with Him

by praying from your heart a prayer such as the following:


"Oh God, I'm a sinner.

I've been a sinner all of my life.

Forgive me, Lord.

I receive Jesus as my Savior.

I trust Him as my Lord.

Thank you for saving me.

In Jesus' name, Amen."


If you have never received the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior,

but have received Him today after reading this invitation, please let us know.

We would love to hear from you. Your first name is sufficient.


"Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved"

              ~ Acts 2:21b


Age (If Desired)

Come, everyone who thirst, come to the waters...

            ~  Isaiah 55:1a

Jesus said unto her,

"Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again,

but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again.

The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

           ~ John 4:13,14
