Salvation

Through Jesus, the Word, we exist and have life. It's in the Bible,
John 1:1-4, NKJV. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All
things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that
was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men."

It's in the Bible, John 14:6, NKJV. "Jesus said to him, “I am the way,
the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through
Me."

Sin separates us from God, the source of life. It's in the Bible,
Isaiah 59:2, NKJV. " But your iniquities have separated you from your
God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not
hear"

What is sin? It's the breaking of God's Law. It's in the Bible, 1 John
3:4, KJV. "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for
sin is the transgression of the law."

Who has sinned? It's in the Bible, Romans 3:23, NKJV. "For all have
sinned, and come short of the glory of God"

What are the consequences of sin and being separated from God? It's in
the Bible,James 1:15, NKJV. "Then, when desire has conceived, it gives
birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death."

How can I be saved from death? It's in the Bible, Romans 6:23, NKJV.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in
Christ Jesus our Lord."

God offers us salvation through Jesus. It's in the Bible, Matthew
1:21, NKJV. "And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His
name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”

What did Jesus do to save me? It's in the Bible, Isaiah 53:5-7, NKJV.
"But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our
iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His
stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have
turned, every one, to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the
iniquity of us all."

It's in the Bible, Philippians 2:5, NLT. "You must have the same
attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of
equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his
divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born
as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself
in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross."

Why did God send Jesus to die for me, you don't know the terrible
things I've done.It's in the Bible, Romans 5:8, NKJV. " But God
demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still
sinners, Christ died for us."

It's in the Bible, John 3:16-17, NKJV. "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. For God did not send His
Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through
Him might be saved."

Through Jesus's death we are no longer separated from God. It's in the
Bible, Romans 5:10, NKJV. "For if when we were enemies we were
reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been
reconciled, we shall be saved by His life."

Salvation means we receive eternal life if we enter into a personal
relationship with God. It's in the Bible, John 17:3, NKJV. "And this
is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus
Christ whom You have sent."

Salvation cannot be earned, it is a gift from God. It's in the Bible,
Ephesians 2:8-9, NKJV. "For by grace you have been saved through
faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of
works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created
in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we
should walk in them."

Receive Jesus' death for your sins. It's in the Bible, Romans 10:9-10,
NKJV. "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe
in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be
saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with
the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

Repent and confess your sins. A powerful, personal response to the
gospel is "repenting" or feeling sorry for our sins, confessing them,
and turning away from them. It's in the Bible, Acts 2:37-38, NKJV.
"Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to
Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we
do? Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be
baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and
you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

It's in the Bible, 1 John 1:9, NKJV. "If we confess our sins, He is
faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness."

Receive Jesus' life. Surrender your life to God, and let Christ live
in you. It's in the Bible, Galatians 2:20, NKJV. "I have been
crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in
me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the
Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me"

It's in the Bible, 2 Corinthians 5:17, NKJV. "Therefore, if anyone is
in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold,
all things have become new."

Rejoice, for you are now a child of God! It's in the Bible, John 1:12,
NKJV. "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to
become children of God, to those who believe in His name."
