What does the Bible say about being Saved!
What does it mean to be saved? It means o be preserved
from final and everlasting judgment and destruction. To be rescued from
eternal death forever in the fires of hell!
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ
Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, so none of us can
escape, because we are all sinners!
First, why are people doomed to eternal separation in hell?
Because man is sinner!
as by one man
sin entered into the world, and
sin; and so death passed upon
all men, for that all have sinned: We
are born with a sin nature.
That one man was Adam and in his
rebellion and disobedience to God he plunged the world into sin. Genesis 3
The Bible further tells
us in… Rom.3:10-13, 23
it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:11 There
is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.12 They
are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there
is none that doeth good, no, not one. 23 For all have sinned, and
come short of the
glory of God; No
one is able to approach God unless they come by the only way available
which is Jesus Christ.
14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the
life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Secondly, the consequences of our sin is physical and spiritual
death forever! Rev.20:11-15
11 And I saw a great white
throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and
heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were
opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the
dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books,
according to their works.
the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and
hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were
judged every man according to their works.14 And death and
hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake
of fire. The unbeliever will be
cast into the lake of fire forever with no hope.
Rom. 6:23 For the
sin is death; but the
gift of God is eternal life through
Christ our Lord.

You Must Repent ! Luke
Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these
Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye
repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the
tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above
all men that dwelt in
5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye
repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Repentance is a deep
sorrow for things done or said, a regret for past conduct, a deep
contrition for sin, and understanding that we have offended a Holy God, a
change of your attitude toward sin.
My friend you must see yourself as God sees you, lost and undone, a
hopeless sinner under the condemnation of the Lord.
John 3:18 He
that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is
condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only
begotten Son of God.19 And this is the condemnation, that
light is come into the world, and men loved
darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
You must receive by
Faith the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.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.17 For
God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the
world through him might be saved.
grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is the
gift of God:
of works, lest any man should boast.
My friend Grace is God's
unmerited love and kindness to you. He doesn't have to love you but He
does. You cannot earn that which is freely given. No amount of good works
i.e.; baptism, money, church attendance, or sincerity in any false
unbiblical hope will get you to heaven; only receiving Christ as the
payment for your sin will suffice.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power
to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:13 Which were born, not of
blood, nor of the will of the
flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord
Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised
him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.10 For with the heart man believeth
righteousness; and with the mouth
confession is made unto
My friend do you see what you
must do is to trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour. He is the only Way.
John 14:6 Jesus
saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto
the Father, but by me.
Would you humble yourself
right now and receive Jesus Christ as your Savior? He has already done His
part by dying on the cross in your place, now you must trust Him to take
you to heaven when you die. Maybe you could just pray something like this;
and remember it is the heart that God sees and knows …
Dear Jesus I know I am a sinner. I am sorry for my sin and do not want to
go to hell. Please save me and take me to heaven when I die. Right now I
receive you as my personal Savior. Thank you for giving me everlasting
