SALVATION IN CHRIST:
WE ALL ARE SINNERS AND ARE SEPERATED FROM GOD.
Rom.3:23: For all have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD.
BECAUSE OF SIN WE DIE:
Eze.18:4: The soul that sinned it shall die.
lCor.15:56: The sting of death is sin ; ……
Rom.6:23: For the wages of sin is death but the gift of GOD is eternal life through JESUS CHRIST our LORD.
JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS, HIS BLOOD WAS SHED ON THE CROSS, HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD….that He by the grace of GOD should taste death for every man.
lPet.3:18: For CHRIST also has once suffered for sins,the just for the unjust, that HE might bring us to GOD …….
l John l:7: and the blood of JESUS CHRIST HIS SON cleansed us from all sin.
SALVATION ONLY THROUGH JESUS:
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.
YOU HUST BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST:
John 7.16: For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten SON,that whoever believes in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life.
Acts 16:31: And they said, Believe on the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
John 8:24: …for if ye believe not that I am HE, ye shall die in your sins.
Heb.9:27: And it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement.
SALVATION OF YOUR SOUL:
Romans 10:9: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD JESUS, and believe in thine heart that GOD has raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
ETERNAL LIFE IS GODS FREE GIFT TO YOU:-
1John 5:11: And this is the record, that GOD hath given to us eternal life,and this life is in HIS SON.
GOD IS NOT A RESPECTER OF PERSON: SALVATION IS FOR EVERYONE.
Rom.10:13: For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
GOD GAVE MEN HIS OWN FREE WILL: WOULD YOU CALL UPON HIM TODAY ?
I INVITE YOU TO SAY THIS PRAYER WITH ME FROM YOUR HEART and BELIEVE:
JESUS, I believe that you are the SON of GOD and that your blood was shed for me and my sins on the cross. I ask you to forgive me of my sins and wash me clean in your blood. Come in my heart jesus, fill me with your spirit and become lord of my life.
NOTE: Believing with the heart IS BELIEVING FROM YOUR SPIRIT, you cannot believe with the intellect [mind], you can only accept Him by faith which is a product of the spirit.(Rom.8:7)
EPHESIANS 2:8: “FOR BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED THROUGH FAITH, AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD.
YOU HAVE RECEIVED JESUS BY FAITH IN YOUR HEART:
Rom 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: (KJV)
WHAT IS NECESSARY TO MAKE THIS FAITH AND YOUR RELATION WITH GOD GROW ?
A) YOU MUST READ YOUR BIBLE, GOD’S WORD.
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Mth.4:4 Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
You have to eat to keep your body strong and alive, so is it with your spirit:
you have to read your bible and pray, to keep your faith strong and alive.
THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST IS NOW IN YOUR HEART:
2 Cor. 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (KJV)
B) YOU MUST READ THE SCRIPTURES: THEY ARE FOR INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.
2 Tim 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2 Tim 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (KJV)
C) YOU MUST SPEND TIME IN PRAYER AND, TALK TO GOD FROM YOUR HEART.
1 Thes. 5:17 Pray without ceasing. (KJV)
HE WILL ENLIGHTEN YOUR MIND FROM THE WORLDLY STRUGGLES AND GIVE YOU PEACE.
Phil 4 :7 : And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (KJV)
D) WORSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHER BELIEVERS IN A TRUE BIBLE BELIEVING CHURCH.
Heb. 10 : 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. (KJV),
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (KJV)
