Some Important Things To Understand

You are a sinner. We all are. Sin is any deed or thought contrary to the nature of God. Every person is born with sin and commits sin every day. God is Holy and hates sin. In fact, God’s Word says: “For ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

Sin, simply put, deserves death. Because God is just, He must punish sin. The punishment is eternal separation from God. God’s Word says: “For the wages of sin are death…” (Romans 6:23a)

You cannot save yourself. Because you are born a sinner there is no action you can do to make yourself worthy of heaven. You cannot go to church or be good enough to earn a place in heaven. God’s Word says: “not by [good works] which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us.” (Titus 3:5a)

Only God can save you. God gave his Son, Jesus Christ the only sinless person ever on earth, as your Savior. Jesus Christ paid your death penalty in full. God’s Word Says: “But God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

The cross is sufficient. Jesus paid for your sin by shedding His blood, dying on the cross and rising from the grave. His blood paid your penalty. His resurrection defeated death and He now sits in Heaven at the right hand of God. God’s Word Says: “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.” (1 Peter 3:18a)

Trusting Jesus alone will save you. You are powerless to save yourself. Only by trusting that Jesus died for your sins, was buried and rose again from the grave can you receive salvation (eternity with God). God’s Word says: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.” (Acts 16:31) “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36)

How Can I Be Saved?

  • Confess to God that you are a sinner and need Him to save you.
  • Tell God you wish His help in not sinning again (repent).
  • Tell God you believe Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven.
  • Ask God to take control of your life.

Do as God’s Word instructs:

“If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:9-10,13

If you have made a decision to accept God’s Gift of salvation you will begin to experience His help in calming your fears and worries that come from being in this world.
