God's Salvation Plan
God's Salvation Plan
First You Must Accept That You are A Sinner
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
Romans 3:10 As it is written,There is none righteous,no,not one.
No one is perfect and no one as lived up to God's perfect standards.
Second,You Must Accept That As A Sinner You Owe A Penalty
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death.
Ezekiel 18:4b ...The soul that sinneth,it shall die.
This death is described in the Bible as the second death,the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:14 And Death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.This is the second death.
If we pay what we owe as sinners, we must spend an eternity in the lake of fire(Hell)
Third,You Must Accept That Jesus Christ Has Already Paid Our Sin Debt.
Romans 5:6 For when we were yet without strength ,in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Heb 2:9b...that he by the grace of God should taste death for everyman.
Christ was not a sinner and the Bible teaches that God took all of our sins and placed them on Christ.While Christ was bearing all of our sins in His body.God punished Him in our place to pay the debt we owed.This is not something God promised to do.It is something God has already done.
John 3:16 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.
2Corinthians 5:21 He hath made him to be sin for us,who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
It is a fact that Jesus has already paid your sin debt.
Fourth ,You Must Accept By Faith What Jesus Christ Did For You
Ninety times in the gospel of John the bible says : BELIEVE
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
The word "believe" means to trust,to depend on,to rely on.To believe on the Lord jesus Christ means that you accept the fact that you are a sinner,that as a sinner you owe the sin penalty ,and that Jesus Christ dided on the cross to pay the debt you owe.But it means going one step further...It means that you will completely trust Christ to get you to Heaven - that you will put the matter of your salvation in His hands and depend on Him for everlasting life.
Now the moment you do this,God promises you are not condemned but have everlasting life and that you shall never perish.
John 5:24 Verily, verily , I say unto you, he that heareth my word,and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life,and shall not come into condemnation ;but is passed from death unto life.
If you will trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour, Pray this simple prayer;
Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I deserve to pay my own sin debt, but I do believe that you died for me to pay the debt I owe. Today, the best I know how, I trust You as my Saviour, I will depend on You from this moment on for my salvation. Now help me to live for You and to be a good christian. Amen
Now be sure to call or share your good news with someone now and get into a good church that teaches the word of God and fellowship to help you to grow in the Lord.May God Bless You!
