How Do You Spell Salvation? (#328)
Bible version used: KJV
SALVATION means to be rescued from sin and its punishment and to be set free to know, love and serve God.
Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:34,36
ALL have turned away from God and broken the law of God.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. . . Romans 3:23
LEFT TO OURSELVES there is no rescue, and the justice of God requires our eternal punishment.
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 3:36
VICTORY OVER SIN was obtained when God sent His Son Jesus to earth. Jesus obeyed God’s laws perfectly, yet He died to pay for the sins of all who believe.
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10
ADMITTING that our sin has put us in a desperate situation is the first step in our rescue.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:8,9
TAKING the free gift of Jesus’ payment for our sin makes us “not guilty” in God’s sight.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23
IN GRATITUDE for such love, we follow Him in obedience and service.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1
ONLY JESUS has provided the way to salvation.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12
NOW is the time to make your decision.
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2
If you are ready to accept this gift of salvation, pray this prayer:
“Jesus, I believe that you are the holy Son of God. I confess my sins before you. Come into my heart, wash my sins away, and help me to follow you all the days of my life. Amen”
