Salvation


Salvation


God offers us salvation through Jesus. It's in the Bible, Matthew 1:21, TLB. "And she will have a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus (meaning Savior), for He will save His people from their sins." Acts 4:12, NIV says, "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."
Salvation means we receive eternal life if we enter into a personal relationship with God. It's in the Bible, John 17:3, TLB. "And this is the way to have eternal life—by knowing You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one You sent to earth!" John 3:16, NIV says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."
There is only one way to salvation and its not the easy road. It's in the Bible, Matthew 7:13-14, TLB. "Heaven can be entered only through the narrow gate! The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide enough for all the multitudes who choose its easy way. But the gateway to Life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it."
Salvation cannot be earned, it is a gift. It's in the Bible, Ephesians 2:8-9, TLB. "Because of His kindness, you have been saved through trusting Christ. And even trusting is not of yourselves; it too is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good we have done, so none of us can take any credit for it."
Receiving salvation is a powerful, personal response to the gospel including repentance for sin. It's in the Bible, Acts 2:37-38, TLB. "These words of Peter's moved them deeply, and they said to him and to the other apostles, 'Brothers, what should we do?' And Peter replied, 'Each one of you must turn from sin, return to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins."
Receiving salvation is simple, direct, personal, and public. It's in the Bible, Romans 10:8-10, TLB. "For salvation that comes from trusting Christ—which is what we preach—is already within easy reach of each of us; in fact, it is as near as our own hearts and mouths. For if you tell others with your own mouth that Jesus Christ is your Lord, and believe in your own heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in his heart that a man becomes right with God; and with his mouth he tells others of his faith, confirming his salvation."
