3:23

All of us at times have done wrong and been unloving and unkind to others. The Bible says, All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). The worst thing about our sins is that they separate us from God, who is absolutely sinless and perfect. In order to bring us to God, Jesus, the Son of God, took the punishment for our sins.

Salvation is a gift. All you have to do is receive Jesus into your heart. Hes there, waiting to come in. If you havent yet done so, you can right now by praying a simple prayer like the following:

Dear Jesus, I now open my heart and I ask You to come into my life. Please fill me to overflowing with Your love. Amen.

Salvation is not a reward. Its not payment for anything good you may have done or anything bad you may have not done. It is a gift that you dont earn and cant earn by any kind of works of your own.

You dont need to worry about whether or not you are going to lose your salvation or how you are going to manage to stay saved, because once youve received Jesus as your Savior, you are saved! You have eternal life right now, and you cant lose it.

13:5

Even though youre not perfect and youre bound to make mistakes, God is going to save you anyway. Salvation is forever. Hes already given it to you, and Hes not going to take it back. Its yours! Jesus says, I will never leave you nor forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5)
