How To Be Saved
As reported in the gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke), the lady who is associated with the washing of Jesus’ feet is depicted as a woman who enters the home, opens the alabaster jar, and washes the feet of Jesus. This is a list of some of the stories: 26:6-13 King James Version – 6 In those days, when Jesus was in Bethany, at Simon the leper’s home, 7 a woman came to him with an alabaster bottle of exceedingly valuable ointment, and she poured it on his head as he was seated at dinner. But when the rest of his followers saw it, they were enraged and said, “For what use is this waste?” This ointment has the potential to fetch a high price and be distributed to the less fortunate.
14:3-9 King James Version – 3 In Bethany, as he was eating dinner with Simon the leper, a lady approached him with an alabaster box containing a priceless ointment of spikenard, which she broke open and poured on his head.
4 And there were those who were enraged and said, “Why was this waste of ointment created?” 5 After all, it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence and the proceeds sent to the underprivileged.
‘Leave her alone; why are you bothering her?
Luke 7:36-50 KJV – 36 And one of the Pharisees approached him and asked if he would like to have a meal with him.
37 After learning that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s home, a sinner from the city came and brought an alabaster bottle of ointment, 38 and stood behind him crying, beginning to wash his feet with tears, wiping them with the hairs of her head, kissing his feet, and anointing them with the ointment.
- It has been proposed by some scholars that the reason these tales are so identical is because they were copied verbatim from one another (see the illustration below).
- Followed closely by Matthew, which was written by the apostle Matthew, and then Luke, who was not a direct follower of Jesus and who also contributed to the writing of the book of Acts.
- Because the gospel of John does not follow a synoptic pattern with the other three gospels, the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection is a bit different.
- 2 They prepared a meal for him, and Martha served it; however, Lazarus was among those who sat at the same table as them.
- How come there are so many different versions of Jesus’ feet being washed?
- One in which Mary anoints the feet of Jesus and another in which a stranger anoints the feet of Jesus are depicted.
- 2- The name and location of the anointed were lost in the oral tradition of the synoptic gospels, however the story in John’s gospel preserved the information.
- 4) The episode takes place at Bethany, at the home of Simon the Leper, who could have been connected to Lazarus and who might have been a pharisee (remember that the pharisees were a Jewish group that was quite popular during Jesus’ time).
- The possibility exists that they lived in close proximity to each other, or perhaps with each other, which we do not know.
- Despite her objections, John decided to include her name in the list of names.
- 3) Mary is frequently depicted at the feet of Jesus, which is consistent with her portrayal in Scripture as a very committed disciple of Christ.
Before reaching any judgments about Scripture in any of these instances when it appears to differ across the gospels, always seek for the parallels and investigate its historical accuracy. pk
- “Father, I understand that I have disobeyed your rules and that my misdeeds have caused me to be estranged from you. I sincerely regret my actions, and I wish to shift away from my previous wicked lifestyle and toward you. Please accept my apologies and assist me in avoiding sin in the future. In my belief, your son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was risen from the dead, is alive, and is listening to my plea. From this day forward, I invite Jesus to take over as Lord of my life and to rule and reign in my heart as my Savior and Lord. Please send your Holy Spirit to guide me in obedience to You and in carrying out Your will for the rest of my days. “I pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.”
In the name of Jesus Christ, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in his name for the forgiveness of sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:38). If you have decided to accept Jesus as your Savior today, you are now a member of God’s family. After then, the Bible instructs us to follow through on our pledge as a means of becoming closer to Him.
- Get baptized in accordance with Christ’s command
- Informing someone else of your newfound trust in Christ is important. Every day, spend some time in God’s presence. It is not need to be for an extended length of time. It is enough to establish a regular practice of praying to Him and reading from His Word. Invoke God to strengthen your faith and deepen your comprehension of the Bible, and Seek out other Jesus-followers to share your life with. Create a circle of believing friends who will answer your concerns and provide you with support
- Locate a nearby church where you can offer your prayers to God

How to Be Saved Through Jesus Christ
Documentation Download Documentation Download Documentation Those who accept Jesus into their lives are qualified for salvation, according to the Christian Bible, since his pardon is eternal. In order to receive Jesus’ gift of salvation, there are a few things you must agree to do, such as confessing your sins and asking for forgiveness. Overall, you should make a commitment to being a good Christian and following the teachings of the Bible in order to be admitted into Heaven.
- 1 Recognize Jesus as the Son of the Living God. According to the Bible, all Christians who believe that Jesus is the Son of God are eligible to be saved (Romans 10:9). Christian refers to someone who believes that God and Jesus are one entity that created the universe and everything in it, as well as someone who is loving and forgiving. Only Christians, according to the Bible, are capable of accepting the gift of salvation.
- It is critical that you do this because you will not be called a Christian unless you have accepted Jesus into your life and followed his teachings.
- To comprehend salvation, it is necessary to read about Jesus’ death on the cross. According to the Bible, God sends Jesus to Earth in order for him to die and thereby cleanse humanity of original sin. Spend the most of your time reading the books of Mark, Luke, and Matthew, as each of these books has thorough accounts of Jesus’ death on the cross and his admittance into Heaven by the Father. Each of these volumes recounts an individual Apostle’s recall of Jesus’ life, and they will aid you in your understanding of who Jesus is.
- This is seen as Jesus’ first act of “salvation,” and it serves as a reminder that no matter how serious your sins are, Jesus can forgive them if you really repent and ask for forgiveness.
- s3 In whatever you do, give your complete attention to God. Put Jesus and God’s teachings first in your life, and you will demonstrate that you are committed to living a holy lifestyle. Follow the Ten Commandments, which are God’s written instructions on how to be a good Christian, and you will be successful. Make your best effort in school, job, and other activities in order to bring God praise.
- In order to fulfill the commandment to “honor your father and mother,” you can do nice things for your parents, for example, in order to live out the duty to “honor your father and mother.”
- Attending a regularly scheduled church service is one method to demonstrate your love to God. However, even if you don’t go to church, you can still be saved because of Jesus’ sacrifice.
- Try talking about your problems with a pastor or spiritual adviser to have a better understanding of how you might use Jesus’ teachings to keep you motivated in work or school. 4 Be kind and considerate of other people. In every conversation, strive to be happy and positive, and assume the best about other people’s intentions. A good rule of thumb is to treat people the way you would like to be treated yourself, and to act with compassion. Always remember that Jesus loved everyone, including the people who sentenced him to death on the cross. This is true even when someone does something to hurt your feelings or your pride.
- Consider the following scenario: If one of your friends is spreading a story about you, you should speak up to them about what is happening rather than talking about them behind their backs. Once you’ve discussed the situation with them, you may forgive them in the same way that Jesus forgives all sinners. You may use the question “What would Jesus do?” to help you remember the forgiveness that Jesus demonstrates when you’re having a difficult time with a problem.
- 5 Become a volunteer and give back to your community to spread kindness and love. Do nice actions and provide a helping hand to others in your spare time without expecting anything in return, just like Jesus did in the Bible. Volunteering for people in need allows you to follow Jesus’ teachings about treating others as you would like to be treated by helping those in need. These will assist you in maintaining an optimistic view on life and can serve as a reminder of how Jesus’ love can be used to benefit everyone, regardless of their circumstance in life
- A few examples include volunteering once a week at your local soup kitchen or organizing an event to raise money for a non-profit organization in your neighborhood. If you’re volunteering for a religious organization, refrain from discussing religion unless you’re participating in a special mission trip organized by the organization. Some individuals may not agree with your points of view, but you may still assist them regardless of whether you agree with them.
- 1 In order to interact with God, you must confess your sins via prayer. When you commit a sin, take a moment to sit down and reflect on what you’ve done wrong. Allow yourself to pray in whichever manner you find most comfortable, and be very honest about what happened and why it happened. For example, you may say something along the lines of “Dear Father, I’ve been having trouble managing my temper recently, and I lash out and rage at a buddy today.” True to my heart, I’m concerned about failing my pals, and I don’t want to cause them any further pain.”
- It’s critical to be upfront and honest with yourself and others about the problem. You have the right to seek for forgiveness as long as you are truthful
- 2Whenever you commit a sin, say a prayer asking for forgiveness. Once you’ve confessed your sin and prayed about it, you may ask for forgiveness. Invoke the name of your choice or create your own “sinner’s prayer” tailored specifically to your circumstances. Make a point of emphasizing that you are sincerely sorry for your conduct, and consider ways in which you might strive to act more in the image of Jesus. An Example of a Forgiveness Prayer In the event that you have sinned by speaking adversely about oneself, you may say something like: “Father, today I seek forgiveness for speaking poorly about myself.” I don’t want to think of myself in a negative light or as a victim. Allow me to understand how you perceive me as your kid if you can alter my self-perception. Please assist me in changing my behaviors so that I speak optimistically and positively about myself and my life. “In the name of Jesus.”
- 3 Pray for the salvation of those who do not believe in Jesus. In addition, if your friends and family members have not recognized Jesus as the Son of God, you might intercede on their behalf. Communicate with God about how much you adore them, and reflect on all of the ways they have assisted you in becoming more spiritually mature. Inquire of God for assistance in demonstrating the beauty of redemption through the Lord to them.
- People of diverse religious backgrounds may and should pray for their salvation, and this is acceptable. They are under no need to modify their ideas, but you may continue to pray for them.
- 4 Create a strategy for avoiding temptation and sin. If you find yourself committing the same crimes over and over again, attempt to devise a strategy for removing yourself from the circumstance or avoiding it entirely in the future. Confide in a trusted adult about your concerns with your pastor, spiritual leader, or other trusted adult. At the end of your prayer, ask Jesus for wisdom on how to withstand temptation in your life.
- To illustrate: If you have a tendency to use the Lord’s name in vain when you’re angry, attempt to come up with alternative methods of expressing your displeasure orally. In the case when you regularly exclaim “Jesus Christ” or “Oh my God,” try saying something like “Goodness Gracious” or “Sheesh!” instead.
Create a new question
- Question What can I do to achieve inner peace? Rejoice in the Lord, confess your sins before Him, and He will restore your relationship with God. Trust in Him, and only Him, and He will guide you through your life
- Question everything. Is it possible for me to enter heaven if I have made fun of Christianity in the past? Absolutely. It was not just the Apostle Paul who made fun of Christianity
- He also persecuted and murdered Christians. After God revealed the truth to him, he repented of his actions and committed his life to spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ to as many people as possible. God is dependable in his forgiveness
- Question What should I do if I’m afraid of disappointing Christ? Remember that the spirit of fear is a manifestation of the adversary, therefore fight it vigorously! There is no fear in the presence of God. He will take care of you if you cast all your worries on Him. Make every effort to serve Him to the best of your ability
- I’ve tried many times to accept Jesus and have failed miserably. Will he continue to forgive me? He has already expressed his gratitude to you. And that’s exactly what Jesus did when he was crucified. When Jesus died for your sins, he did it with full knowledge of your situation. He is aware of all that has occurred and will occur in the future
- Question Why am I still alive, despite the fact that I have committed unimaginable sins? Because of God’s mercy and kindness. In exchange for your repentance in your heart, your attempt to do better, and acceptance of God as your God, God is prepared to forgive you for anything you have done
- I’m apprehensive about making a complete commitment to Jesus. What can I do to alleviate these anxieties? Because you are entrusting your life to the Lord, you should have nothing to be scared of. Spending time with him via prayers, good deeds, praise/worship, and being baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost will help to alleviate your anxieties. Keep in mind that God is love. He loved you so much that he sent his only begotten son to die for your sins, that he laid down his own life for you, that is how much he cares about you. Never be worried because he is protecting you from evil
- Ask a question What should I do if I’m not sure I’m saved? What can I do to be certain that I have been rescued in the true sense of the word? Read the Bible and look for texts that prove Jesus is the Son of God and the Savior. The books of Romans, Galatians, and Ephesians should be read. These are epistles that teach that being saved does not depend on your holiness, kindness, or sinlessness on your own merits. God acknowledges that you are a sinner, and He is pleased if you acknowledge it as well. Believe that Jesus’ death on the cross has saved and forgiven you. This is the only way to be saved and pardoned. If one believes that Jesus paid the punishment for his sin, he or she can be certain of eternal life
- Question How can I forgive my children when they have done something wrong? Recall that all offenses should be forgiven if the sinner repents
- Consider the following questions: Does this imply that only the Gospel has the ability to rescue me? Yes, the real message of Jesus Christ will rescue you if you accept Him as your Savior and repent of your sins. Question: Jesus died so that you might have eternal life
- What happens if I profess faith in Jesus yet continue to commit the same sin over and over again? The fact that we are humans means that we are full of sin. Everyone has sins that they deal with, and some sin more than others, but no one is without sin. The best you can do is pray and put your confidence in the Holy Spirit to keep your heart safe and keep you from falling prey to temptation. It’s important to remember that Jesus is greater than all of your sin as well as all of your successes. You have been rescued only through the grace of God.

- Maintain your awareness of the fact that your relationship with Jesus is always a work in progress, and you will not be assured salvation until you sincerely accept Him into your life and strive to become a better person all of the time
- Please keep in mind that, according to the Bible, God’s forgiveness is unconditional as long as you are really remorseful for the sins you have done.

Are you perplexed as to how to be saved, or do you ask, “How do I get into heaven?” The solutions can be found in no uncertain terms inside God’s Word. Unfortunately, many religious leaders today do not teach the entire truth of what the Bible truly teaches. God loves you and desires for you to be rescued more than you can ever comprehend! One of the most important verses in the Bible is 1 Timothy 2:4, which states that God “wants all people to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth.” The idea of writing a blog article explaining how to be saved according to God’s word has been on my mind for a long time.

Many do not teach the full plan of salvation, as outlined in the Bible
Since starting to actually read my Bible, I have learnt a great deal. Unfortunately, there are many phony churches and individuals that are as I was, which is painful to witness. They are really mistaken, and they are not complying or following the commands of Jesus or his apostles. God does expect his followers to fulfill his commandments (John 14:15; 1 John 2:3–4), the most important of which is to love him and to love others (the greatest commandment) (Galatians 5:14; James 2:8). As stated in the Bible, those who do not follow his commands or who are unloving towards others do not know Jesus (1 John 3:6; 1 John 4:8).
Reading his word (the Holy Bible) is the best way to find out for yourself. This is how you will become acquainted with him (Romans 10:17). It was through reading God’s word that I fell in love with him, and it is the most romantic narrative ever written.
The Bible Clearly Tells Us How to Be Saved
As you read, I believe you will be startled to learn exactly how incorrect the religious world can be, and, unfortunately, how many people actually do not know Jesus and are teaching and preaching false doctrines and doctrines contrary to the Bible. The Bible cautions against a second Jesus as well as false instructors (2 Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 1:6-7; 2 Corinthians 11:13; 2 Peter 2; 1 John 4:1; Matthew 7:15). They are described as “ravenous wolves” by Jesus in his warning, and we shall recognize them by the fruit of their deeds, which will be revealed in the future (their actions).
- There will be MANY who have believed they were following Jesus on the very last day of this earth, when everything is destroyed, when he returns to judge the world righteously, and when he takes his followers with him to be with him for eternity.
- They did not follow his instructions or observe his commands.
- So I’m writing this letter to you for a lot of different reasons.
- Second, I care deeply about your soul and want you to be rescued as well.
- Let’s get started!
Why do I need to be saved?
So here’s how it works. Jesus Christ, God’s righteous judge, will judge the entire world on the final day through the eyes of his Son, God the Son (Acts 17:31). Every everyone who has ever walked this world will come before God one day, and we shall be evaluated according to our deeds, as well as by the words and teachings of Jesus, and we will be rewarded or punished accordingly (2 Corinthians 5:11; John 12:48). God has provided us with his law (his commandments). I believe God has set a standard for us that we must live up to; but, we have all fallen short of that ideal and broken his law out of our own free will (Romans 3:23).
- Everyone who has ever lived will spend forever in one of two places: either hell or paradise.
- Furthermore, God want to establish a connection with us, but our sin keeps us from having that relationship.
- Our sin results in death, which is the punishment for our sin (Romans 6:23).
- It is necessary for him to punish us for breaching the law if he is a just judge.
- God is just, yet he does not wish to punish us for our disobedience in the first place (Romans 3:26).
He longs to be merciful and for us to come to know who he is (Hosea 6:6; Matthew 12:7). As a result, he sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem us and pay the penalty for our sins, so enabling us to be rescued from their consequences!
Who is Jesus Christ?
Jesus Christ is the son of God. Despite the fact that he is eternal and has previously lived in paradise, Jesus chose to leave the pleasures of heaven and come to earth. He took on a human body for our sakes (Philippians 2), lived a completely sinless life, went through all of the emotions and trials that we as humans go through, and then died an incredibly agonizing death on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins on our behalf. He gave his life in our place. Then, on the third day, Jesus was resurrected from the grave and ascended back to heaven, where he died.
God the Father has placed Jesus at his right hand, where he is presently ruling over his church (the body of rescued believers), and he is waiting for the day when he will return to judge the world (Acts 2:30-35).
How can I be saved by God? What are the steps to be saved?
It is necessary for us to embrace the redemption made available by Christ in order to gain forgiveness of our sins and, consequently, eternal life through him. Following the instructions provided in the Bible, there are six stages we must perform in order to achieve this salvation.
First and foremost, we must hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. According to the Bible, “faith comes through hearing, and hearing comes via the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). One can not qualify as a Christian just because his parents are Christians. Faith is not something that can be passed down through generations (Ezekiel 18:20). Each individual must come to faith in Jesus Christ for himself or herself. Christianity is built on a foundation of sound doctrine (Matthew 28:19-20). One cannot be saved until he has heard the Gospel and understood that Jesus Christ died for his sins, was buried, and was raised from the grave on the third day, according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
And how are they supposed to believe in Him of whom they have not heard anything?
Second, one must believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and that he died and rose again (Matthew 16:16). “.if you do not accept that I am He, you will perish in your sins,” Jesus stated emphatically (John 8:24). “Sirs, what do you think I should do to be saved?” the jailor at Philippi inquired of Paul and Silas. When he asked what they said, they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you and your household will be saved” (Acts 16:30-31). “He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned,” Jesus also warned (Mark 16:16).
Faith can only be gained via hearing God’s Word (Romans 10:17).
Hebrews 11:6 further informs us that we cannot please God unless we believe.
“And it is impossible to satisfy God if one does not have faith, for anybody who wishes to get near to God must believe that he exists and that those who seek him will receive recompense.” Continue reading:100 Inspirational Bible Quotes to Brighten Your Day
Third, in order to be saved, one must repent of his or her sins (Acts 17:30-31). “Repentance and forgiveness of sins should be taught in His name to all nations, beginning with Jerusalem,” Jesus stated in the Sermon on the Mount (Luke 24:47). A person’s repentance is the outcome of feeling sad for his or her sins (2 Corinthians 7:10). They were “cut to the heart” when they discovered, through Peter, that they had crucified the Son of God on Pentecost Day (Acts 2:37). It was because they want to be pardoned of their faults that they inquired, “What must we do?” Their instructions were as follows: “Repent, and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.” (See Acts 2:37-38.) When someone repents, he or she is turning away from their misdeeds (1 Thessalonians 1:9).
Fourth, one must admit that Jesus Christ is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and that one believes in him (Matthew 16:16). In fact, this tremendous truth serves as the basic basis upon which the church of Christ is constructed (Matthew 16:18; Acts 4:11-12; 1 Corinthians 3:11). According to Jesus, if we want Him to confess us to the Father, we must be prepared to confess Him to others as well as to ourselves (Matthew 10:32-33). “However, what does it say?” the apostle Paul inquired. In other words, the word of faith that we teach is near you, in your mouth, and in your heart: that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved (Matthew 16:16).
“I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God,” the eunuch admitted after that moment (Acts 8:35-38).
5. Be Baptized
Fifth, in order to be saved, one must be immersed in water. The words of Jesus were, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16). Please keep in mind that baptism comes after believing. A person who does not believe in the Gospel cannot be authentically baptized in the Christian faith. As a result, babies cannot be baptized because they are too young to (1) have sin, (2) hear the Gospel, (3) repent of sins, and (4) confess that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Babies cannot be baptized because they are too young to (1) have sin, (2) hear the Gospel, (3) repent of sins, and (4) confess that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
- When people inquired about what they should do to be saved on Pentecost Day, Peter responded by telling them to “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized.” (See Acts 2:38.) A person who has not sincerely repented will not be able to be truly baptized.
- The term “immerse” comes from the Greek language and implies “to entirely submerge” under water.
- As a result, sprinkling and pouring do not constitute true baptism.
- According to the beliefs of several faiths, one is not saved until he is baptized.
- “And now, why are you wasting your time?” he is told.

6. Remain faithful to God
Any person who is willing to come to Christ and humbly subject himself to His terms and laws has the potential to be and will be saved, according to the Bible’s teaching. However, becoming a Christian entails much more than simply being redeemed from one’s sins. A Christian’s growth as a result of his or her obedience to Jesus (Hebrews 5:9), abiding in his or her teachings, and keeping his or her commandments must be maintained (2 Peter 3:16-18). (John 15:6; 2 John 1:9; Matthew 7:21-27). All of your days must be spent being faithful to God, no matter how difficult the situation appears to be.

What is the sinner’s prayer?
Any person who is willing to come to Christ and humbly subject himself to His terms and commands has the potential to be and will be saved, according to the Bible’s unequivocal teaching. However, being a Christian entails much more than simply being redeemed from one’s previous state. A Christian’s growth as a result of his or her obedience to Jesus (Hebrews 5:9), abiding in his or her teachings, and keeping his or her commandments must be continued (2 Peter 3:16-18). (John 15:6; 2 John 1:9; Matthew 7:21-27).
“Be loyal unto death, and I will give you the crown of life,” states the Bible’s Revelation 2:10.
What Must I Do To Be Saved?
|This is the most important question in human existence and one whose answer is clearly outlined in scripture. In order to be saved we must first realize our true state of sinfulness beforeGod and know that He alone can save us, cleanse us, and give us eternal life. Scripture tells us thatJesus is theonlyway and we can not have access to God throughanyother means. In fact, in John 14:6, Jesus plainly stated. “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”|
God Loves You!
God has shown such great love for you that He has prepared a path for you via the spilt blood of his son, so that you may spend eternally with Him in His presence. The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whomever believeth in Him should not perish but have Everlasting Life” (Jn. 3:16).
Man is a Sinner, and Sin has Separated him from God!
You may believe that you are a decent person, but simply being good is not sufficient! No one is without sin, and there is no one who is righteous in the eyes of God! “For there is not a righteous man on the face of the earth, who does good and commits no vice” (Eccl. 7:20). All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, as the Bible states (Rom. 3:23).
Jesus Christ is the Only Remedy for Sin!
Jesus Christ is the only one who can provide a solution for sin. We will never be good enough to enter into paradise, and our good actions will not bring us there either. There was no other way for God to undo the consequences of sin other than via the shed blood of Jesus. Indication that the cost for sin had been paid was represented by the shedding of Christ’s blood, which represented the sacrifice of a perfect sinless life to atone for the lives of all those who had sinned. “.there is no forgiveness of sins until there is the shedding of blood.” (Hebrews9:22) “For Christ also once suffered for sins, the righteous for the unjust, in order that He may reconcile us to God,” the Bible says.
(See 1 Peter 3:18). The Bible says, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
You Must Receive Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Savior
A man must profess that Jesus is Lord while also realizing in his heart that Christ must have complete control over his life in order to be saved. Man is unable to achieve righteousness on his own, and hence this confession of Christ as Lord believes that it is Christ who will work and accomplish His own righteousness inside man, as man is incapable of achieving righteousness on his own. This event is referred to as the “new birth” by Jesus. “.Unless a man is born again, he will not be able to see the Kingdom of God,” he warned Nicodemus (Jn.
We now extend the invitation to you to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour.
Pray this Prayer and Mean it with all Your Heart
Greetings, Lord Jesus! I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that I have violated your laws. I’m aware that my sin has caused me to be estranged from you. I sincerely apologize and seek for your forgiveness. I acknowledge that your son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was risen, and is alive and well today, and that he hears and answers my prayers. I am now inviting Jesus to come into my heart and take on the role of my Lord and Savior. I surrender control to Him and pray that He rule and reign in my heart, allowing His perfect will to be achieved in my life as a result of my surrender.
If you recited this prayer with all of your heart, you have earned the title of “Child of God.” However, there are a few things that you must do in order to ensure that your pledge is followed through on.
- Get baptized (complete immersion) in water, as Christ has ordered you to do

» What Does It Mean To Be Saved
“What does it mean to be saved?” is a question that many people struggle to answer. Second, knowing who Jesus is and accepting the fact that Jesus is alive, as well as the fact that God sent him into this world to die for our sins, are not sufficient conditions of salvation (being saved). First, you must confess (agree with God) that you are a sinner who is lost and on your way to hell and therefore in desperate need of a Savior. Only then can you be saved. 3:23 (Romans 3:23) Because everyone has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, Paul writes in Romans 6:23 that Because the price of sin is death, but the gift of God is everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).
Romans 10:9-10 is a biblical passage. It is not His desire that anybody perishes, and this includes you. What exactly does being rescued imply? It entails the following:
- Being absolved of your crimes
- Being pronounced righteous and innocent by God through faith in Jesus
- Being absolved of your sins
- Toaccept the free gift of everlasting life that has been made available to us through Jesus Christ
- To have a new birth (you must be born again, become a child of God), you must first go through the process of rebirth. A personal and close connection with the Lord Jesus Christ
- To be freed from the consequence of sin (which is death and eternal separation from God)
- To be redeemed from the power of sin
- It is necessary to accept Jesus’ finished work. Having one’s soul removed from the dominion of darkness and placed in the kingdom of His light
- A hope that extends beyond death (since He lives, I shall also live with Him for all eternity)
- It is impossible to list all of the wonderful promises and blessings that come with being saved, delivered, and adopted as a child of God! God alone deserves all of the praise and credit for the wonderful and amazing things He has done.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life,” Jesus declared. “No one comes to the Father except through me,” he added. 14:6 (John 14:6) In order to be adopted as a child of God and to be admitted to Heaven after death, you must receive Him. Jesus paved the way for us. There isn’t any other option. There are no exceptions to this rule.
