SALVATION

 

If you died right now, where would you go?  God loves you and offers you eternal life

In heaven as a free gift. He has a plan for your life and wants to come into a relationship with

you. Each of us needs to come into a personal relationship with God with the Saviour, Jesus

Christ.

 

 

First,  you need to be saved.   

Why?                    Because sin has separated us from God.

 

What is sin?         Sin is anything that we say, do, or think, that is wrong, or displeases God.

                             Sin has separated us from a relationship with God. The penalty for sin is

                             death and hell.

 

Who has sinned? Romans 3: 23 -  “For all have sinned and  come short of the glory of

                                                      God.”

 

                             Luke 13:3 -   “I tell you, Nay: but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise

                                                 perish.”

 

What is the penalty for sin?  The penalty for sin is eternal separation from God.

Romans 6: 23  -  "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is

                          eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

 

 

 

 

Second,  you cannot save yourself.

John 14: 6  - "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man

                    cometh unto the Father, but by me.

 

                   Titus 3: 5a -  “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but

                                        according to His mercy He saved us.”

 

          Ephesians 2:  8 & 9   - “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of

                                                yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any

                                                man should boast."

 


Third,  Jesus has provided for your salvation.

Because Jesus died for our sins, we can come into a relationship with God.

 

John 3: 16 - “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son so

that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting

life.”

God offers us eternal life with Him in heaven as a free gift because of what Jesus has done.

Jesus died for our sins: Romans 5: 8 - “But God commendeth his love toward us, in

                                      that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."


He rose from the dead: I Corinthians 15: 3 - 4 - “For I delivered unto you first of all

                                     that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins

                                     according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that

                                     he rose again the third day according to the scriptures." 
 

Fourth,  you must accept Jesus for salvation.

 

Acts 16:31 - “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.”

 

Fifth,  now is the time to accept Jesus as your Saviour.

 

II Corinthians 6: 2b - “Behold, now is the day of salvation.”

 

Sixth:  What to do to be saved:

 

          Romans 10: 9   - “That is thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall

                                    believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou

                                      shalt be saved.”

 

Romans 10: 13 - “ For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

 

Finally,  ask Jesus to come into your heart and save you and He will.

          Just like any gift, we must receive God's gifts in order to have eternal life. We must give our lives to Jesus and receive Him into our hearts. Once we take this step, we come into a permanent relationship with God with Father through Jesus Christ the Son.
