Salvation

Salvation Plain & Simple

If you stood before Jesus and He were to ask you "Why should I let you into Heaven?" What would you say.....

 

1. A GREAT POSSIBILITY It is possible through Jesus Christ to have assurance that when you die you are going to heaven and to have a full and meaningful life right now.

2. A GREAT PROBLEM Every member of the human race is born with a sin nature "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23. Mankind is universally lost. Sin separates mankind from a righteous God, not only now but eternally in hell. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" Romans 6:23.

3. A GREAT PROVISION -- The one true God has revealed Himself to the world through Jesus Christ. God has provided through Jesus Christ the only way of Salvation. God loves mankind so much that He gave His life to pay the penalty for sin. "For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:6-8.

4. A GREAT PRIVILEGE -- God gives us the privilege of being saved from our sins. You must repent of your sins (" Unless you repent you will all likewise perish" Luke 13:3) and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ ("Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved: Acts 16:31).

5. A GREAT PRAYER -- It is possible for you to be saved right now. The Bible says, "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and will believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation' Romans 10:9-10.

You can express the faith that is in your heart by praying a sincere prayer like this:

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I need your forgiveness. I ask you to forgive me of my sins and come into my heart and save my soul! Thank You Jesus for hearing this prayer, cleansing all my sin through your blood, and accepting me now as Your Child. Teach me and direct me through Your Word and Your Spirit to discover Your purpose and will for my life, In Jesus name I pray, Amen"

You may be wondering, "what do I do now?"

The Bible is very clear that there are steps you need to take after your salvation experience.

Step 1: Eternal Life is entirely in receiving Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. (1 John 5:11-13)

Step 2: Baptism follows salvation. Only God's children qualify for baptism. (Matthew 3:13-17)

Step 3: Christians mature by feeding on God's Word, serving Him, and establishing Christian fellowships. (1 Peter 2:2)
