Here is an analogy I once learned:
Take a brand new 100 dollar bill. Crumple it in your hand, then throw it on the floor and walk all over it, next look down and spit on it and spill a drink on it. I want you to treat the 100 dollar bill as bad as you can without destroying it. Now pick it up, wipe it off and then go to the store and ask the clerk how much that hundred dollar bill is worth? It is worth a 100 dollars, nothing has changed it.
Now take a Christian. Crush him, throw him on the ground and then walk all over him. Next, you can spit on him and denigrate him. As a Christian, he also can fall, come up short and never make the so-called mark. How much is he worth? He is worth the same as he was when Christ died for him, nothing has changed.
Remember, no matter what happens to you as a Christian, you are always the righteous of God, you have been saved and declared righteous by the King of Kings and nothing can ever change that. No matter how much you mess up in this world, just like the hundred dollars, your worth never changes in the eyes of the Savior. He died for you.
What if I never excepted Jesus?
If you never gave your life to Jesus or you have tried to live a religious life and trying to earn your way to heaven.
So if you are not sure: Ask this question: Am I going to heaven when I die? If you say: “I do not know” or “yes,I believe I am a good person!” BOTH answer will disqualify you!
Only Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. You owed a sin debt to God, in which you could never pay. So in order for God to make you sinless and righteous, He became man (Jesus) and died for you. Your debt is paid, so all you need to do is to except Jesus gift to you. You just need to give your life to Him and ask:
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
