God’s Plan of Salvation

God’s Plan of Salvation

The Bible says there is only one way to Heaven

Jesus said: ““I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)

Good works cannot save you. For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— not from works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Trust Jesus Christ today! Here’s what you must do:

Admit you are a sinner.“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)

“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12)

“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1:10)

Be willing to turn from sin (repent).

Jesus said: “No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as well!” (Luke 13:5)

“Therefore, having overlooked the times of ignorance, God now commands all people everywhere to repent,” (Acts 17:30)

Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead. “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 3:16)

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

“you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9)

Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Saviour.“ With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation” (Romans 10:10)

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

“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:” (John 1:12)

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

If you have received Jesus Christ as your Savior, as a Christian you should:

Take time each day to read your Bible.  As with any important relationship, you should get to know as much as you can about the person you have the relationship with.

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who doesn’t need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth .” (2 Timothy 2:15) Your word is a lamp for my feet  and a light on my path.” (Psalms 119:105)

As you go about your life, talk to God in prayer every day. And if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Matthew 21:22)

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”(Philippians 4:6)

Follow Christ in baptism, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority.“ Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19)

“not staying away from our meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day drawing near..” (Hebrews 10:25)

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (2 Timothy 3:16)

Tell others about Christ.“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16)

Repentance is a godly sorrow for sin.  Repentance is a forsaking of sin.  Real repentance is putting your trust in Jesus Christ so you will not live like that anymore.  Repentance is permanent.  It is a lifelong and an eternity long experience.  You will never love the devil again once you repent.  You will never flirt with the devil as the habit of your life again once you get saved.  You will never be happy living in sin; it will never satisfy; and the husks of the world will never fill your longing and hungering in your soul.  Repentance is something a lot bigger than a lot of people think.  It is absolutely essential if you go Heaven (Lester Roloff, Repent or Perish)

Please make sure that you are reading God’s Word every day and praying for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  These are times of incredible deception and by staying true to the Lord Jesus Christ will we be able to resist sin and be able to divide the truth from Satan’s lies.
