†Godís Plan Of Salvation
1. Why does any person need to be saved?
∑ Because we have all done things that we should not have done, and we need to be forgiven of our sins by Jesus Christ. Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
Because we need to have a spiritual
relationship with God, and we can only have such a relationship by receiving
the spiritual birth from Jesus Christ. Jesus said in John 3:3, "Except a man be
born again, he cannot see the
∑ Because there is a heaven and a hell, and we can only go to heaven through the power of Jesus Christ. Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one comes unto the Father but by me."
∑ Because we are going to die some day, and only Jesus Christ can give us eternal life. Jesus said in John 11:25-26, "I am the resurrection and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die."
2. How does a person become saved?
∑ By admitting that they have sinned, and praying to Jesus, and asking Him for forgiveness. Romans 10:13 says, "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
∑ By repenting of their sins. This means to desire to serve God instead of serving sinful self-interest. Jesus said in Luke 13:3, "except you repent, you shall all likewise perish."
∑ By believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, who was born of the virgin, who died for the sins of the world, who rose from the dead on the third day, and who will come again. Romans 10:9 says, "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
