Four Things God wants you to know

  1. You need to be saved from sin’s penalty

    All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way. (Isaiah 53:6)
    There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. (Proverbs 14:12)
    For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
    The wages of sin is death. (Romans 6:23)
    Each of us will give an accounte of himself to God. (Romans 14:12)
    It is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment (Hebrews 9:27)

  2. You cannot save yourself

    Unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:30
    He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy. 
    (Titus 3:5)

    (James 2:10)
    Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

  1. Jesus has provided for your salvation

    For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 2:5)
    For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous that he might bring us to God. (1 Peter 3:18)
    For our sake he [God] made him [Jesus] to the sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
    God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
    (John 3:16)

  2. You can be saved today

    Whoever hears my word and believes has passed from death to life. (John 5:24)
    Behold, now is the… time; behold, now is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:20
    Seek the Lord while he mahy be found, call upon him while he is near. (Isaiah 55:6)

    Your part:

    Believe: Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved. (Acts 16:31

    Repent (turn from your sins): Unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. (Luke 13:3)

    Confess you sins to Jesus: For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 2:5)

    Confess Jesus before others: If we confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

    Trust Him to keep you: [He] is able to keep you from stumbling. (Jude 24)
