John 14:6 says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto theFather, but by me. Also see Acts 4:12, John 8:24, and Matthew 7:13-20.
The Bible teaches that those who are trusting Jesus to save them will spendeternity in Heaven. John 3: 16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave Hisonly begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but haveeverlasting life.” Also see John 5:24, Romans 10:9,10 and Acts 16:30-31.
Salvation is a gift of God that cannot be earned, says Ephesians 2:8-9.
Salvation is offered on the basis of what Jesus, the Son of God, hasalready done. On the cross, Jesus took the guilt of our sins upon Himself and paid the penalty of our sins for us, dying in our place, says Mark 10:45 and 1Peter 3:18. According to 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4, His resurrection is proof that Hissacrifice was acceptable to God as the just payment for our sins.
God's instructions are, "Repent ye, and believe the gospel," says Mark 1:15. Torepent is to change our mind to agree with that we are a sinner and cannot save our self. To believe the gospel is to place our complete trust in Jesus as our Savior.
How do we link to God or get saved? Pray something like this and meanit, THEN begin doing good stuff to exhibit our faith and new focus.
Dear God: I am a sinner.Others have sinned greater than I have. Nevertheless, I stand before you nowas a lost sinner deserving of Hell. I choose to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God Who became a man. I choose to believe that He allowed Himself to be put to death, that He aroseagain on the third day and is alive today.The Bible says the blood of Jesus Christ washes our sins away, and I believethat. Father, I want to be cleansed of all my sins right now. I know I am not right with God, and I want to be forgiven. I want to go to Heaven when I die. Right now at (time and date)______________, I bow at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ, and I am dumping all of my sins there. And I mean ALL of them! I ask that the blood of Jesus Christ wash away all my sins - past, present, and future.
