How to be Saved?
- Realize you are a sinner.
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Romans 3:10- Realize you will face JUDGEMENT because of your sins.
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this THE JUDGEMENT:" Hebrews 9:27- Realize you CAN NOT save yourself.
"But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; ..." Isaiah 64:6- Realize that on the cross Jesus Christ took upon Himself your sins .
"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, ..." 1 Peter 2:24- Simply receive Jesus Christ by faith as your personal Savior
"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
Salvation is trusting and receiving Jesus Christ as your Savior. It's trusting in the fact that Jesus Christ died on the cross of Calvary to pay for your sins! It's realizing there is absolutely nothing whatsoever you can do to save yourself and completely trusting in Jesus Christ to save you! It's not any church that saves. It's not any baptism, not good works, not sacraments, not repenting, not praying through, not living a good life — IT'S NOT ANYTHING YOU CAN DO!
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that NOT OF YOURSELVES: it is the gift of God:
Now isn't that plain? NOT OF YOURSELVES. . . NOT OF WORKS. . .HOW TO BE SAVED?
Would you like to receive the gift salvation? If so, here is a simple prayer you can pray to God. Saying this prayer is a way to declare to God that you are relying on Jesus Christ for your salvation. The words themselves will not save you. Only faith in Jesus Christ can provide salvation!
"God, I know that I have sinned against you and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. With your help, I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness - the gift of eternal life! Amen!"
If you just prayed that prayer — according to the Word of God — YOU ARE SAVED! HALLELUJAH!
You say, but I don't feel any different. Guess what? Your salvation does not depend on your feeling. It ALL depends on doing what God SAID!
God said if you receive and trust in Jesus Christ you are saved. Notice it does NOT say you "might" or "could" be saved — but "shall be saved". YOU ARE SAVED!
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord SHALL BE SAVED. Romans 10:13
Didn't you just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ? Look at what John 3:36 says! It says you HATH EVERLASTING LIFE! Not "maybe" or "hope so" — BUT HATH — YOU ARE SAVED!
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 3:36Friend, if you prayed the prayer and received Jesus Christ — YOU ARE SAVED! You did what God said — AND GOD CANNOT LIE!
In hope of eternal life, which God, THAT CANNOT LIE, promised before the world began; Titus 1:2
What to do next?
Tell somebody about Jesus. Go tell someone when you get through reading this that you just got saved. Tell your family. Tell your friends. Tell the world! Try to find someone everyday you can tell about Jesus.And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ. Acts 5:42
