The Gift of Salvation
Plan of salvation
Salvation is the saving of man from eternal damnation and separation from God because of sin. The Bible tells us, "all are sinners and come short of the glory of God” and that the penalty for sin is death; Rom 6:23. Think about a small child, they don't have to be taught to be jealous or to tell a lie or to be selfish; no it is natural. Because of the sin of one man (Adam, the first man) our very nature is to sin. We are not sinners because we sin, we are sinners by nature; it is a natural thing for us to sin. The price we pay for even one sin is an eternity in hell, a place of fire and brimstone, a place where we will suffer eternally and be separated from God.
But now the Good News! Jesus Christ has provided a way for our sin debt to be paid. Jesus gave His life on a cruel Roman Cross some two thousand years ago that we might have life. You see, Jesus paid the debt that we owe. Jesus took all the sin of the world past, present and future and nailed it to the cross. Jesus says
“I am the way, the Truth and the light and that no man can come unto the Father except through me."
IThe Bible verse John 3;16;  Jesus furthermore states:
"For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotton Son, that " Whosever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. "
That "whosever" means me, you or anyone else. It doesn't matter how bad you are, it doesn't matter what sins you have committed, Jesus saves! God's word is true and because He is God, He cannot lie. Please, stand on the promises of God today. We may not understand all and it may seem too simple, but God's word says "We walk by Faith and not by sight.
If you would be saved today pray this prayer and receive God's gift of salvation, you don't have to earn this gift, just reach out and accept it from the hand of God.
God, save me a sinner. I am sorry for my sins and believe that Your Son, Jesus, died for my sins and was raised again the third day, victorious over Hell, Death and the Grave. I trust in Jesus to save me. I now allow Jesus to live in my heart. Thank you God for hearing my prayer. Thank you God for saving me. Amen
Friend if you have prayed this prayer and believe with all your heart that God has saved you, then today, you have become a new creation, today you became a Child of God. I would love to hear your story. Please click here and send me a note that I might pray for you and rejoice with you and the very angels in heaven over your decision to accept Jesus as your Savior.
