ADMIT THAT YOU’RE A SINNER
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. – Romans 3:23 NKJV
We may think, “Well, I’m not as bad as so and so,” but we are not comparing ourselves to one another but instead to the holiness of God and His righteous standards.
In 2002, I saw my sinfulness the way God did and admitted I was a sinner.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 6:23 NKJV
The Bible makes is clear that sin must be paid for one way or another. Those who reject Jesus, the Son of God, and don’t accept His payment on their behalf will one day pay for those sins themselves with their eternal death, forever separated from God and those they love who did choose the free gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ.
BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOUR SINS, WAS BURIED, AND THAT GOD RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD
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. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. – Romans 10:9-10 NKJV
Declare before God from your heart: I confess Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart God has raised Him from the dead.
CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD
For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. – Romans 10:13 NKJV
Declare before God: I call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and now I am forever saved and have eternal life with God the Father through Jesus Christ.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. – Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV
If you just made that declaration of faith from the heart in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, you’ve just encountered the grace of God and have been saved through faith.
You didn’t have to do anything to earn your salvation, your eternal life with God the Father in heaven. It was a free gift, so no one can say they made their own way, but Jesus Christ made the way for them. Isn’t that amazingly beautiful?
