HOW TO BE SAVED AND KNOW YOU ARE FORGIVEN

LIFE-SAVING BIBLE TRUTHS
 
There are some questions in life that we cannot avoid, and dare not
dismiss  -  some  questions that force us to make decisions one way
 or the other!
Please read the following, without any pre-conceptions. Try and answer
 the questions honestly.
It may well mean the difference between eternal life and death - for YOU!
 
READ THE FOLLOWING FROM ROMANS 3, verses 10 and 23
"There is none righteous, no, not one."
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
 
CAN YOU ACCEPT THAT YOU ARE A SINNER IN GOD'S SIGHT?
 

READ THE FOLLOWING FROM EPHESIANS  2:8-9  and  ISAIAH 64:6 and you will

see that good works cannot help to save you.

"For by grace are ye saved  through  faith; and that not of yourselves:

it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast"

"We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy

rags"

 

CAN YOU ACCEPT THIS?

 

READ THE FOLLOWING FROM ACTS 17:30-31 and JOHN 3:3 you will find that

it is essential for all  men  to   REPENT   of their sin - in other words,

to make a fresh start   with  God,  turning  our  back  upon  the  past  -

'burning our bridges'.

"In the past God overlooked  such  ignorance,  but  now He commands all

people everywhere to repent. For He has set  a day, when He will judge the

world with justice."

 

CAN YOU ACCEPT THE NEED FOR YOU TO REPENT?

 

In verse 31, We find that God is the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE before Whom all

unforgiven  sinners  shall appear for sentence, and the wages of sin,

we are told in ROMANS 6:23 is DEATH!

 

It says, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal

life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

It is contrasted with ETERNAL LIFE so it is not speaking of ordinary

PHYSICAL death, but ETERNAL death, and separation from God!

In ROMANS 14:12 it tells us how that one day, eventually, we must be

answerable to God.

"Every one of us shall give account of himself to God."

 

CAN YOU ACCEPT THAT YOU ARE IN DANGER WITHOUT CHRIST?

 

In JOHN 3:16 it tells us  HOW  MUCH  GOD  LOVES US! So much that He

sent  HIS ONLY SON, to die in our place (see JOHN 3:16, JOHN 15:13, ISAIAH

53:5; and 1 PETER 2:24)

"For God so loved the world, that  He  gave His Only Begotten Son, that

whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life."

"Greater love hath no man than this, that  a man lay down his life for his

friends."

"He was  wounded  for  our  transgressions,  He  was  bruised  for  our

iniquities."

"Who His Own self bare our sins in His Own body on the tree."

 

CAN YOU ACCEPT THAT GOD LOVES YOU  SO  MUCH,  HE SENT JESUS TO  DIE  IN

YOUR PLACE BEARING  YOUR SIN?

 

Read ACTS 4:12 and JOHN 14:6 below, and  you will see that JESUS IS THE

ONLY WAY OF SALVATION!

"Neither is there salvation in any other:  for there is none other name

under heaven, given amongst men, whereby ye must be saved."

"I am the way, the truth and the  life, no man cometh unto the Father, but

by Me."

 

CAN YOU ACCEPT THAT THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO BE SAVED APART FROM ASKING

THE LORD JESUS TO COME INTO YOUR LIFE?

 

Are you then willing, at this moment, to REPENT OF  YOUR  SIN?

(confess  it  to  God,  ask  His forgiveness, and turn your back on it?)

 

Are you willing to receive Jesus into  your  heart and life, to be YOUR

SAVIOUR, LORD,  AND  KING, and to let Him rule in YOUR life?

 

If you are willing, then pray right now! Repent of your sin, and ask Jesus

to  come  into  your heart and life  to  be your Saviour. If you want help

to pray, then use the prayer below.

 

     Dear Lord Jesus, I know that You love me so  much,  You  died

      for me on the cross, bearing my sin. I am so  sorry  for  all

      the sin I have committed, and  ask  you  to  forgive  me,  to

      become my Saviour, and live in my heart and life. Make  me  a

      new person - inside, and give me the strength to follow  You,

            and tell others that I now love and serve You.

                                                          Amen

 

The following verses will help you find the certainty and assurance of

Salvation. READ 1 JOHN  1:9, ROMANS 10:9, below;

 

"If we confess our sins,  He  is  faithful  and  just to forgive us our

sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

"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."

 

 

If you have invited Jesus into your  life,  please e-mail me and let me

know of  your  decision,  as  I would  like  to provide you with a portion

of Scripture, and some helpful  readings.  It  is  also important that you

find a church that  is  alive,  and  believes  in Salvation through Christ

alone. The worship and fellowship will  strengthen and help you. God bless

you!
