Realizing you’re a sinner with a gulf between you and the living God is critical. But that’s only one part of His redemption plan. Here’s the rest you need to know.
GOD’S ABCs of SALVATION: THE JESUS ROAD
Admit to the Lord that you’re a sinner, falling short of His glory. Honest sorrow leads to true repentance and humility before our righteous God. And that sparks a change within your soul—a new way of thinking, God’s way, not the world’s. A soul restoration is underway.
For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of the Lord,
being justified as a gift by His grace
through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.
The wages of sin are death,
but eternal life is the free gift from God
in union with the Messiah, Jesus our Lord.
It’s God’s kindness
that leads you to repentance.
Believe that God sent His son, Jesus (Yeshua, His Hebrew name), to pay the price for your sin on the cross and raised Him from the dead to conquer the sting of eternal death.
“I AM the Truth, the Life, the Way,
no man comes to the Father except through me.”
For there is one God,
and there is one mediator between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus,
who gave himself as a ransom for all,
which is the testimony given at the proper time.
—1 Timothy 2:5-6
But God shows his love for us in that
while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.
And since we have been made right in God’s sight
by the blood of Christ,
he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation.
For since our friendship with God was restored
by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies,
we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son.
Call upon the name of Jesus our Messiah to the glory of God, our Father, trusting God’s miraculous love plan: His son Jesus sent as Savior, your holy access to spending eternity in heaven. Believe in the name above all names—Jesus—then tell others and walk in it.
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord
and believe in your heart
that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved. For with the heart,
one believes and is justified, and with the mouth
one confesses and is saved . . .
all who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
And there is salvation in no one else;
for there is no other name under heaven [Jesus]
that has been given among mankind by which
we must be saved.
—Acts 4:10a, 11, 12
For this reason also God highly exalted Him,
and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,
so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow,
of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
But as many as received Him [Jesus],
to them He gave the right to become children of God
to those who believe in His name, who were born,
not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh,
nor of the will of a man, but of God.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.
Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,
and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.
Do you believe this?
Once you receive God’s perfect gift, share the Good News with others and get ready to start your walk with the Lord with these recommendations . . .
