The Gift of Salvation
|The Keys To Eternal Life...
Jesus Christ paid for our salvation with His death on the cross, but for us to accept this gift is as simple as using these keys to unlock the door:
|ACKNOWLEDGE YOU HAVE SINNED|
we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us" (1 John
1:8).* "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans
|BELIEVE IN JESUS|
in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved" (Acts 16:31). "For God so loved
the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish
but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
|CONFESS AND RENOUNCE YOUR SIN|
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). "If we confess our
sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all
unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9).
Now pray a simple sinner's prayer like this...
"Lord Jesus... I know that I am a sinner. I know I can't save myself. I need You to be my Savior. I'm sorry for sinning against You. Please forgive me. Wash me, and make me clean. I will turn from my sin, and live for You. Please help me to live my life for You from this day forward. In Jesus' precious name I pray... Amen."
|He said to them, "Go into all
the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will
be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."
