A simple definition for the word recycle is to say that something new is made from something old. It is saved from destruction and put to a good use. It is given a brand new purpose!
This recycle process can happen to you too. It's something that God will do for you. You can be saved from destruction (Titus 3:5), given a new life (Romans 6:4) and you can discover a new purpose (Ephesians 2:10)
'Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.' (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Would you like a new life with a new purpose?
Would you like to know how to have a victorious happy life here and now?
Have you ever thought about eternal life?
Would you like forgiveness for the past and how for the future?
If your answer to any or all of these questions is 'YES' then there is good news for you. Please take a moment to read the next few pages that are designed just for you
God and Man are separated by Sin
All have fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 2:23)
For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6: 23)
Jesus died on the cross in your place to pay the penalty for your sin. For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might Bring us to God. (1Peter 3:18)
No I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. (Luke 13:3)
Repent - change your attitude toward sin

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name he gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12)
In whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:14)
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved (Romans 10:9)
The following prayer was used by Billy Graham in leading millions to Christ. You can make it your prayer.
O God I am a sinner. I am sorry for my sins. I'm willing to turn from my sins. I receive Christ as saviour. I confess Him as Lord. From this moment on I want to follow Him and serve Him in the fellowship of His church. In Christ's name. Amen.
And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know and have eternal life. (1 John 5: 11-13)
1 Realise you are a sinner
2 Christ died for your sin
3 You must turn away from your sin (repent)
4 You must believe (trust) Christ
5 Pray to receive Jesus
6 Be assured of your salvation (1 John 5: 11-13)
For God so loved that he gave his only begotten Son, that if
believes in him should not perish, but
would have everlasting life (John 3:16)
Signed in His Blood
