God made coming to His Son, Jesus Christ, easy to understand and obey.
The following is called the ABC’s of salvation, and explains the simple pathway to new life in Christ!
A-ADMIT that you are a sinner
The Bible says, “For all have sinned, and fallen short of the glory of God.”—Romans 1:23
Another passage says, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”—Isaiah 64:6
Once we admit to God to being a sinner in need of forgiveness, we take the next step.
B—BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ
God gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to save us. Through His shed blood on the Cross our sins are washed away!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”—John 3:16
“For by grace you are saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.”—Ephesians 2:8
Lastly, having confessed your sins to God, and placed your faith in Christ, you take the final step.
C-CONFESS with your mouth
The Bible promises, “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”—Romans 10:9-10
The Bible teaches that, after taking these three simple steps, you are a new person inside! “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things have passed away: behold, all things are become new.”—2 Corinthians 5:17
Congratulations on your new life in Christ!
Following Jesus means going out into our world, loving your neighbors, and making a difference. When you follow Jesus you find great joy in giving generously, praying boldly, and serving consistently. Freely we have received, freely we go and make a difference!
