Salvation means being saved from the power of sin and from hell, the eternal penalty for that sin. Through the process of salvation, we are freed from everything that could prevent us from enjoying eternal life with God Almighty. We have all violated God’s Laws, principles of Truth in the Word of God.
What must we do to be saved?
1.We have all sinned against God Almighty and transgressed His Laws with our words, thoughts and intents of the heart;
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23 (KJV)
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 (KJV)
2. We need to ask forgiveness, repent, and believe Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour.
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. Romans 10:9-10 (KJV)
3. Then we are born again (A spiritual change from sinfulness to righteousness).
Jesus answered and said unto him,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3 (KJV)
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 (KJV)
4. Those who have been born again are now justified by faith of Jesus Christ.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
5. This is only the beginning of our journey with Jesus Christ. We are all a work in progress, which leads to sanctification, to make holy, set apart.
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJV)
Pray, read God’s word daily and ask God to help you obey what you read and to be led by the Holy Spirit in His will.
All Glory to God Almighty
With Blessing in Christ,
David & Gay
