GOD'S PLAN FOR MAN'S SALVATION

 The most important thing a person can to in this life is to come to the realization that there is a God of the universe who has revealed Himself to us. Not only must that realization be made but one must listen to what God says and believe Him. Belief is putting one's full assurance in Him. Please read the facts God has given in His Word.

I. It is a fact that God exists.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (Romans 1:20)

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)

II. It is a fact that God has spoken to man by giving us the Bible.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God... (II Timothy 3:16)

III. It is a fact that God loves us.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)

IV. It is a fact that man, who is sinful can't be with a holy God.

But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. (1 Peter 1:15-16)

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23)

V. It is a fact that disobeying God has its consequences.

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

VI. It is a fact that Jesus Christ took the punishment for man's sin to save him from eternal punishment in hell.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: (1 Peter 3:18)

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. (Romans 10:9)

VII. It is a fact that we must receive God's gift of salvation.

9 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. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10)

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)

VIII. It is a fact that you need to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior now while you can.

(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) (2 Corinthians 6:2)

Now that you have read what God says about salvation read some more about this believing in God that He encourages you to do. Life saving belief is more than just knowing something in your head. Life saving belief is being sure in your heart that God's word is true; That it is true about His holiness, His love for us, our sinfulness and Jesus taking the wages (punishment) for our wrong doings (sins) so that we can be with God when we do die. If you have never received God's gift of salvation will you receive it now by acting on this new belief in your heart. He is holy and you are unholy and will be separated from Him and all that is good for all eternity. You need a Savior and God has given you one, Jesus Christ. Jesus took your sins and their punishment and died for you. Why not ask him to forgive you for your sins and tell him thanks that Jesus died for you.
