Salvation

1.  God loves you.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  John 3:16

2.  Because of Adam’s disobedience toward God, sin passed upon all mankind therefore man is born into sin and is separated from God.

“For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”  Romans 5:19

“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

3.  Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for man’s sin.  By receiveing Him, you can know     and experience God’s love.

“But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”  Romans 5:9

“…how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;…And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day…  I Corinthians 15:3-4, 6

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”   John 14:6

4.  Each of us must be born again. Receive Jesus Christ by faith and confess Him as     Lord in order to receive the free gift of salvation by God’s grace. (See John 3:1-8)

“For by grace are you saved through faith; and not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.”  Ephesians 2:8-9

Prayer to Receive Salvation

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of your Son Jesus Christ.  I believe He died on the cross for my sins; that He was raised from the dead on the third day, and He’s alive right now.  Jesus, I’m asking You to come into my heart.  Live your life in me and through me.  I repent of my sins and surrender myself totally and completely to You.  Heavenly Father, by faith I now confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and my Savior.  From this day forward, I dedicate my life to serving Him.
