So you want to know about Salvation? Good. It is very important, and very easy. Just follow the steps below. You wont have to send money, or do anything embarrasing or painful. Jesus has already done everything that needed to be done.
First, you must believe that the Bible is the word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, recorded by eye witnesses to the accounts contained in its pages. It isnt a story book, or a drama; It is the eyewitness account of people who lived in the days of its writtings.
Second, you must understand that you have sinned. Even if you are a good person, and feel you might not have done anything wrong, or maybe not a lot, it doesnt matter. You have done things that are wrong in the site of a holy God, and you must understand this, and confess that you are a sinner.
(Romans 3:10--As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one)( Romans3:23--For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God;)
God is holy. He hates sin. Sin has consequences:
(Romans 6:23--For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord)(Romans 14:12--So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God)
Next, you must believe that Jesus came to earth, and died to pay the price for your sins.
(Romans 5:8-- But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ dies for us)
But Jesus defeated death, and rose again to prove he was Gods son.
(Romans 10:9--That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved)
Then, you ask God to save you. Its that simple.
(Romans 10:13-- For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved)
Here is what we refer to as the sinners prayer. You can pray this prayer, or make up your own. If you are sincere, God will here your prayer:
Dear God. I know I am a sinner, and I dont deserve to go to heaven. I cannot save myself. I believe that Jesus is your son, and he died for my sins. I believe that he arose from the dead to save me. Lord, I now invite you into my heart. I accept you as my savior, by faith.I now place all my trust in you alone for my salvation. I repent of all my sins, and ask you to forgive me and make me your child as you promised. Help me to follow you, and serve you Lord. I give all of myself to you, in your name, Lord Jesus. Amen.
Here are some other verses that might help too:
(Mark 16:16--...he that believeth not shall be damned.)
(John 3:36--He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him)
(John 14:6--Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.)
