God's Plan Of Salvation
God loves you and has great plans for your life.
John 3: 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 10: 10 I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
But because of SIN in your life you are separated from God. Through Adam and Eve sin entered into the world. Sin is when we break God's rules.
Romans 3: 10 There is none righteous no, not one:
Romans 3: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
Romans 6: 23 For the wages of sin is death (separation from God); but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Jesus Christ is the only answer for this seperation. When Jesus died on the cross He paid the penalty for our sins.
Romans 5: 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Ephesians 2: 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Revelation 3: 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
God has provided the ONLY way. We must make the choice. We must Trust Jesus Christ and Receive Him by Faith. You are willing to turn from your sins and ask Jesus into your heart.
Romans 10: 9 If you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
John 1: 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.
What you need to do.
A: Admit you're a sinner
B: Be willing to repent and turn away from your sins
C: Believe that Jesus Christ died for you (on the cross)
D: Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in your life
E: What to pray
Jesus I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that Christ died for my sins. I am willing to turn from my sins. I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Savior and give me the gift of eternal life. I am willing by God's grace to follow and obey Christ as the Lord of my life. Amen
1 John 5: 12 He that hath the Son hath life, and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God: that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
F: Obeying Jesus we must be obedient and be baptized.
Romans 6: 1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3 Know ye not that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptizm into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall also in the likness of his resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
G: Just the beginning of a new life in Jesus Christ.
Read your Bible every day, talk to God in prayer every day, tell others what Jesus has done for you (witness), worship, fellowship and find your place in service with other Christians in a church where Christ is taught.
