|HOW TO BE SAVED?
My friend, have you given your life to the Lord? Do you have the assurance that if you were to die right now, you would go straight to heaven? If not, please let me tell you how you can be saved.
ADMIT YOUR SIN:
First, you must understand that you are a sinner. The Bible says, "All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
Second, you must understand that you cannot save yourself by your efforts. The Bible is very clear that it's "not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us." (Titus 3:5)
ACKNOWLEDGE CHRIST'S PAYMENT:
Third, you must believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for your sins. The Bible says, "God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) That means that He died in your place. Your sin debt has been paid by the blood of Jesus Christ, which "cleanseth us from all sin." (1 John 1:7)
|REPENT AND ACCEPT HIM AS SAVIOR:
Fourth, you must put your faith in Jesus Christ and Him alone for your salvation. The blood of Christ does you no good until you receive Him by faith. The Bible says, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..." (Acts 16:31)
Have you ever taken this all-important step of faith? If not, I urge you to do so right now. Why? Because Jesus is the only way to heaven!
Speaking of Jesus, the Apostle Peter said in Acts 4:12, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
Jesus Himself said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me." (John 14:6) It couldn't be any clearer than that.
Are you willing to offer the following prayer to God today?
Oh, God, I'm a sinner, I'm lost, and I need to be saved. I know I can't save myself, so right now, I trust You to save me. Come into my heart, forgive my sin, and make me Your child. I give You my life. I will live for You as You give me strength.
If you will make this your heartfelt prayer, God will hear and save you! Jesus has promised that He will not turn away anyone who comes to Him in faith. (John 6:37) He will make you a child of God if you will turn to Him. (John 1:12)
