The ABC's of Salvation

Judgement is coming

God, who made heaven and earth and gives to all people everywhere; life and breath, has set a day, not far from now, on which He will judge the whole earth.

Only those who are righteous shall enter into heaven, the rest of mankind will be sent into eternal anguish, as just punishment for their sins.

And that is a problem for you and me, for there is no one who is righteous enough to enter Gods Kingdom. Compared to the standard God upholds for eternal life, we all fall short.

Left to ourselves, we would have no way to escape the anger and wrath of God. Because of our sinful nature, we are without hope !

God has intervened

But God has made a way, for us, unrighteous humans, to enter into heaven.

God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, almost two thousand years ago, to the earth.

Jesus lived a totally sinless and perfect life, making Him the only “Son of man” to meet the standard God has set, to enter into heaven.

Jesus took your place in punishment

Because of His great love toward us, Jesus gave up His life, as a substitutionary sacrifice, meaning that He accepted to be punished in our place, for the sins that we committed !

Jesus died a horrible death, nailed to a wooden cross, for you !

But because He was Righteous, death could not hold Him captive in the grave and after three days, He rose from the dead.

By this act of pure Love, He gave, to all who would believe, forgiveness of sins and eternal life, and entrance into heaven, because He not only paid for our forgiveness, but made His righteousness to be counted as ours.

By faith in Jesus Christ, we stand sinless and righteous before God !

Gods Promise to you

God today holds out this promise to you:

Believe In the Name of Jesus Christ and be baptized so that your sins are washed away, so you will inherit eternal life !

Does it speak to your soul, do you believe ? will you accept His gift ?

If your answer is “Yes !”please read our ABC’s for what you can do NOW, to grab hold of eternal life.

ADMIT THAT YOU'RE A SINNER.

This is where that godly sorrow leads to genuine repentance for sinning against the righteous god and there is a change of heart, we change our mind and God changes our hearts and regenerates us from the inside out.

In the Bible:

  • Romans 3:10 There is no one righteous, no not one
  • Romans 3:23 All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God (His perfect standard)
  • Romans 6:23 The wages of sin is death

BELIEVE

Believe in your heart that:

  • Jesus Christ died for our sins
  • That He was buried
  • That God raised Jesus from the dead.

This is trusting with all of your heart that Jesus Christ is who he said he was.

CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD.

This is trusting with all of your heart that Jesus Christ is who he said he was. Every single person who ever lived since Adam will bend their knee and confess with their mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings

  • Romans 10:9-10 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you WILL be saved.
  • For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
  • Romans 10:13 All who call upon the Name of the Lord WILL be saved
