The ABCs of Salvation

Dear Friend, may I ask you this question: have you been born again?

Jesus said, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (John 3:3)

He also said it again in John 3:7, "Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."

Men and preachers may say otherwise, but this is what Jesus said. Whom will you believe? Will you believe God or some man? That is your choice that you must make and your eternal destiny hangs upon that choice.

If you have never been born again, please read these ABC's of Salvation and receive Christ today as your Saviour and be born again.

A — Acknowledge yourself as a sinner

The Bible says in Romans chapter 3, "There is none righteous, no, not one: there is none that seeketh after God … there is none that doeth good, no, not one. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."

B — Believe in Christ

The Bible says in Acts 16:31, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved." Jesus said in Luke 5:32, "I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." In Luke 13 Jesus said "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." We are reminded in Romans 2 that "the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance."

In Hebrews 11:6 the Bible tells us that "without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." In Acts 10:42 it says that through the name of Jesus whosoever believes in him shall receive the remission of sins.

C — Confess Christ as Lord and Saviour

Romans 10:9, 10 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

1 John 4:15, "Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God."

If you will accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, just pray with all your heart:

"Dear God, I believe that Jesus was my substitute and paid the penalty for my sin when He died upon the Cross. I repent of my sin and now trust Jesus Christ to save me. I now receive Him as my Lord and Saviour. I thank you for that Eternal Life that He paid for with His own blood. I thank you for forgiving me and saving me by your grace. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen."
