What Must I do to be Saved?
Do you see what is happening around the world today? Do you think that we may be living in the end times? If you have come to this site seeking the truth about the end times, and you want to know how to be saved, then please carefully read this page and find out the truth.
"Oh, but I'm too sinful to be saved!" No! It matters not who you are, or what you have done. Jesus Christ has already secured your salvation on the cross! You just need to accept this great gift of love and follow Jesus by faith.
John 1:29 ...'Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.'
The conditions of obtaining the mercy of God are simple and just. God does not require us to do grievous penance or make some great pilgrimage. No! God's love is so complete, we need only confess and forsake our sin, and we will obtain mercy through the Son of God who took the punishment for us.
Oh 'behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us!' (1 John 3:1)
"If we confess and forsake our sin; if we come to Jesus in penitence and humility of soul, acknowledging our inability to remove one spot or stain of sin, and relying wholly on the merits of a crucified Saviour, we may expect forgiveness; for his word is pledged. He has said that he will pardon our transgressions, and blot out our sins. We must dwell upon the matchless love and compassion of Jesus, and not upon our own unworthiness and sinfulness. If we look to ourselves, all will be darkness; but Jesus is all light and life, and we have only to 'look and live.' We may look 'unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame.' [Heb. 12:2.] What tenderness, what mercy, what love, are here manifested!" (Gospel Workers, p.437)
Eternal life is within your grasp! Reach out and claim it!
The Bible reveals that everyone (except Jesus Christ) has sinned ... Romans 3:23 ...'For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.' ... And what is sin defined as? ... 1 John 3:4 ...'Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.' ... What law? The Ten commandments.
And what is the penalty of sin? ... Romans 6:23 ...' For the wages of sin is death.'
So if we have all sinned and "come short of the glory of God", and we all deserve death, then how can we be saved? Can we earn salvation? ... Romans 6:23 ...'For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.'
Ephesians 2:8 ...'For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.' ... So salvation (the grace of God - eternal life) is a GIFT! So if it's a gift, then it cannot be earned by anyone. It is free, and is waiting for every one of us to accept it. No matter how bad your sins have been. No matter what you have done in the past, this gift is waiting for you to accept it. So how do we accept it?
First, we need to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and came to this earth in the form of man to die for us and our sins ... 2 Corinthians 5:21 ...'For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.'... He died the death that we deserve, so that we may live the life that only He deserves. We need to believe that Jesus rose from the dead and now sits on the throne of God in Heaven ... John 20:31 ...'But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.'
Please Note: Why is Christ Jesus the ONLY way? Because there was a price to pay for our sin against God and the only way that price could be paid, was by the perfect, obedient life and sacrifice of the Son of God. Jesus is the ONLY One who has paid that price with His own life. "None but the Son of God could accomplish our redemption; for only He who was in the bosom of the Father could declare Him. Only He who knew the height and depth of the love of God could make it manifest. Nothing less than the infinite sacrifice made by Christ in behalf of fallen man could express the Father's love to lost humanity." (Steps to Christ, p.13-14)
Now although the grace of God is a free gift and no one can earn it, we still have a part to play, because God doesn't bestow this gift on anyone who doesn't accept it, or anyone who doesn't want to follow Jesus. So what else do we need to do to accept this gift? We need to ask Jesus into our lives, to take control and to change us:
Acts 2:21 ...'And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'
Revelation 3:20 ...'Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.'
Important Point: Jesus told us that only those who accept the kingdom of God as a little child can be saved (Mark 10:15). This means we are to bow humbly before the Word of God and accept it as it is, just like a little child. We are not to become 'puffed up' in our own 'wisdom' and think we have something to add to God's already plain truth. So please bear that in mind, as MANY a man has fallen away from grace by losing that child like attitude towards Jesus and His truth.
