Are You Saved?
According to the Scriptures
Jesus died on the cross...
Jesus was buried...
Jesus rose from the dead!
"Jesus said, Unto her I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die, ..." John 11:25-26
JESUS SAID, "... ye must be born again." John 3:7b
HAVE YOU BEEN BORN AGAIN?
YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY hinges upon what you do with JESUS which is called the CHRIST. Receive Him and be forever blessed.
REALIZE YOU NEED JESUS AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR... The Bible says All men are sinners. We are all sinners by nature and by choice.
SIN SEPARATES YOU FROM GOD...
"For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God." Romans 3:23
"... there is none righteous, no not one." Romans 3:10
THE BIBLE SAYS SIN MUST BE PAID FOR:
"Be sure your sins will find you out." Numbers 32:23
"For the wages of sin is death..." Romans 6:23a
JESUS PAID THAT SIN DEBT FOR YOU ON THE CROSS AT CALVARY
"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" John 3:16
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
REPENT OF YOUR SIN
"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.." Acts 3:19
Repentance is turning away from your sin and turning to God through Jesus.
RECEIVE JESUS INTO YOUR LIFE
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the Sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name." John 1:12
RECEIVE HIM BY FAITH
"For by grace are ye saved, through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God." Ephesians 2:8
FAITH IS TRUSTING IN JESUS. YOU MUST SURRENDER TO JESUS AS LORD.
"That is 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
---Surrendering to Jesus as Lord is not just saying we give our lives to Jesus. (Matthew 7:21) ---Surrendering to Jesus as Lord is giving Jesus control of our lives.
CONFESS JESUS PUBLICLY THROUGH BAPTISM
"Whosever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in Heaven." Mathew 10:32
CALL ON JESUS
"For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord, shall be saved." Romans 10:13
PRAY AND RECEIVE CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR
Lord, I know that I am a sinner. If I died today I would not go to Heaven. Forgive my sin, come into my life and be my Savior. Help me live for you from this day forward. In Jesus' name, Amen.
