John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever shall believe in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Jesus died specifically to save us from our sins. He thought of each and every one of us as He hung there in complete agony on the cross.
Romans 3:10 says, “There is none righteous, no not one.” This means we are all sinners. Not one of us is so perfect that we sin not, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Even the most righteous Christian sins. It’s part of being human. Our flesh makes us weak. And because we sin, we must be punished. “For the wages [payment] if sin is death [hell]” (Romans 6:23a). But God graciously gives us deliverance from that punishment: “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23b). God sent His only begotton Son Jesus to die on the cross for us. Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
So, how do you get saved? Romans 10:9-10 answers by saying: “That 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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
If Jesus is not yet your Savior, He can be — anytime, anywhere. Even here and now. Asking for Christ’s salvation is as easy as ABC, only backwards.
- Confess to Jesus that you are indeed a sinner, worthy of suffering hell fire.
- Believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died to save us from our sins, and rose from the dead to defeat Satan.
- Ask Jesus to be your personal Savior. Jesus will more than willingly give you His free gift and welcome you into His Kingdom with wide, waiting arms.
If you are unsure how to pray asking for salvation, pray the following from your heart:
Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner more than deserving of eternal punishment in hell. But I believe that You came to earth, lived a perfect and sinless life, died on the cross to remove the punishment for my sins, and rose again to bring us victory. I now ask for Your precious gift of salvation, so that I may live in heaven with You for all eternity. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
