What is Salvation? Salvation is the deliverance from sin and from the eternal consequences of sin.
"Every one of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
Each and every one of us has sinned. None of us have attained the Holiness of God, we have all fallen far short.
We are all guilty - no one is innocent!
"The penalty for sin is DEATH!" (Romans 6:23)
The penalty for committing sin is death, not just physical death, but eternal separation from God. God is Holy and Pure and sin is vaporized in His presence! How can darkness stand in the presence of Light? Every one of us has sinned and we are all doomed to eternal punishment! Each and every sin that we commit carries this eternal death penalty! So how many sins can we pay for? How many times can we be banished from God's presence? Just once! If we can only pay for one sin, how are we ever going to pay for the thousands of other sins that we have committed over our lifetime?
Someone has to pay the price for each and every sin that we commit!
There is HOPE!!!
"The Gift of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord!" (Romans 6:23)
God has given us the gift of eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ!
Jesus paid the penalty for ALL of our sins so we could be free!
"God demonstrates His love toward us, so that while we were still sinners, CHRIST DIED FOR US!" (Romans 5:8)
God sent His Son Jesus to pay the full penalty for our sins, even while we were still sinners!
After Jesus died as the full atonement for our sins He rose from the dead, proving that He has mastery over sin and death and was truly able to cleanse us from our sins!
"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." (Romans 10:9)
"everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (Romans 10:13)
It's as simple as that - confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe that God raised Him from the dead - and you will be saved from your sins and eternal punishment in Hell! Not maybe, or hopefully - but WILL BE SAVED!
Who will be saved? EVERYONE who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved! Everyone!
"There is NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1)
Condemnation is "sentencing a person to punishment", in this case Eternal punishment in Hell! Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved! We will not be condemned or punished for our sins! We will be granted a full pardon for the things we have done! We will recieve the gift of eternal life and live forever in the joy of the Kingdom of Heaven!
"Since we have been justified through faith, we have PEACE WITH GOD through our Lord Jesus Christ." (Romans 5:1)
We were once the enemies of God, not even able to stand in His presence due to the sin that defiled us. Through faith in the sacrifice that Jesus made we can now have peace with God.
"We were RECONCILED to God by the death of His Son" (Romans 5:10)
Now that Jesus took the punishment for our sins and cleansed us from all unrighteousness we are forgiven and can enter into a peaceful relationship with God, no longer as enemies but as His children and His heirs!
If you would like to have peace with God and receive eternal life then here is your chance!
All you have to do is say this simple prayer or something like it:
"Lord my God, I have sinned against you and deserve eternal punishment. But, I believe that your son Jesus Christ died on the cross, in my place, as a sacrifice for my sins, so that I could be forgiven. I believe that you raised Him from the dead. I accept Him as the sacrifice for my sins so that I can have peace with you. Today I put my faith and trust in you and accept you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for your forgiveness and the gift of eternal life. Amen.
