What must I do to be saved?
This question has been the most powerful and important question in the entirety of human existence. Our lives are defined by one’s ability to save oneself, one’s loved ones and friends, and even strangers. However, there is only ONE that can save and the Bible clearly spells out and defines the PERSON and the process to salvation.
The Bible states in Acts 16:31, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house."
The Bible also states in Romans 10:9-10, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Who is Jesus Christ?
Jesus Christ is the son of the one true and living GOD. The scripture says in John 20:30-31, "And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name."
"The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he." (John 4:25-26)
You must understand that God Loves You!
He has always loved you and because of that love, "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)
Jesus Christ came down to earth to be the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. He took on human flesh, became a man, and then laid down His life as the ultimate sacrifice to save you.
"The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." (John 1:29)
"Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons." (Galatians 4:3-5)
Why do I NEED to be Saved?
We need to be saved from the penalty of sin. You might believe you are a good person but in reality, the sin nature still rules your body, mind, and heart. It takes more than being good; we have to be made Holy and Righteous in the eyes of God. Only Jesus Christ can do that.
“For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
"Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people." (Proverbs 14:34)
How do I become Saved?
All you have to do is acknowledge that you are a sinner, ask for forgiveness from God, and believe and trust in Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour. His shed blood is enough to wash away all your sins.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." (John 3:18)
If you are ready, you can pray this prayer right now:
Father in the name of Jesus, I come to you. Thank you for bringing me to the realization that I am a sinner and in need of your grace and salvation. Please forgive me of all my sins. I now confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus as my personal Lord and Saviour and believe in my heart that God has raised Him from the dead for my salvation. I give you my life; come into my heart and make me your child today in Jesus name. Amen.
