God so loved the world (that you and everyone that lived, lives and will live in this world) that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him as their Lord and Savior will not perish but have everlasting life. Beloved, we all without Christ Jesus are heading towards eternal damnation. We all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. It is only by obtaining Salvation by believing in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior that we can gain eternal life.
Here is a summary of what it means to have Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
What does Salvation mean?
Salvation means being saved from destructive patterns of life — things that destroy us instead of building us up, such as self-righteousness, substance abuse, lust, greed, envy, wickedness, evil works, and so forth. The involvement in such patterns usually comes from a need to fill a void in our lives. Jesus Christ saves you from such a destructive life and gives you a fulfilling life in God forever.
What do you get saved from?
To be saved means to turn away from a life that is without God- a life that is focused solely upon ourselves- and turn to a new life in Christ Jesus. It means giving up the obsession with our needs, our wants, our pleasures, our comforts, our importance, our egos, and our power to yield to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
How do you get saved?
First, you must believe and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
The Bible says in Acts 4:12, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
Acknowledge your sins before God and ask for forgiveness of your sins.
The Bible says in Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” So you and I, like our father Adam, are born sinners. We have not obeyed all of God’s commandments. Ask God to forgive you of all your sins.
Believe and accept the saving grace and power of our Lord Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins. “…while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” (Colossians 1:14). The Bible says, “…without shedding of blood; there is no remission of sin.” The blood of Jesus can take away all of your sins, because He is sinless, and His blood is pure. His blood can remove your sins as far as the east is from the west. God said, He would remember our sins no more!
Isn’t that good news! Wouldn’t you want that?
Please hear this:
Jesus Christ is our Sin Bearer, the One who died in our place for our sins. “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) Jesus knows our sins, and so He shared His love for us by dying to take away our sins. Pray to ask Jesus Christ to come into your life to walk with you all the days of your life. Romans 10:9 states, “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. “Please pray with all your heart:
Dear Lord, I now realize that I am a sinner and that You died for me. I repent of my sin and ask You to help now me to live my life in you. Thank You, Lord, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Now, what is next?
Lift your head and rejoice, beloved! The Lord Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior; no powers or principalities have power over you. YOU ARE SAVED. Find a Bible-believing church in your neighborhood and become a part of it. We wish you all the best on your new journey with the Lord.
May God be with you.
