THE PLAN OF SALVATION…
Is anyone perfect?
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one. (Romans 3:10) This means no one is perfect.
Is there any exception?
For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Romans3:23) None of us meet God’s holy standards.
Where did sin come from?
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned. (Romans 5:12) Adam, the first person created by God, sinned and passed sin on to every human being.
What do we deserve for our sins?
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6: 23)
Because of our sins, we are supposed to die.
Who paid the price? God commandeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) Instead of us dying, Jesus died in our place in order to give us life.
What is the way out?
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth, the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart 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. For the scripture saith, whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. (Romans 10:9-10) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13) Jesus is the only way out.
How can I get out?
By Salvation, which is as simple as A…B…C:
A – Admit you are a sinner
B – Believe in your heart that Jesus died and rose from the dead
C – Confess with your mouth that God raised Jesus from the dead, and that you accept Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life.
And began your journey with this prayer:
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life and turn toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and do your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
