Believe it or not, there are only TWO religions that exist worldwide today: the DO, and the DONE. Religion (pick one!) teaches that YOU must do something to obtain salvation. The Bible, on the other hand, teaches that you can do NOTHING to save yourself, but that Jesus Christ did all that was necessary for your salvation when He died in your place on the cross. The only thing you must do is receive what He did for you as a free gift. That gift is His righteousness, forgiveness for your sins, and salvation from an eternal punishment in hell, which we all deserve for our sin.
If you don't know for sure that your sins are forgiven and that you are on your way to Heaven, please take two minutes to read God's simple plan to save you. Your eternity depends on it!
Here's What To Do:
1. Admit that you are a sinner.
The Bible says, "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one." Romans 3:10
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
2. Realize There is a penalty for your sin--Eternal Death
"For the wages of sin is death;" Romans 6:23
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." Hebrews 9:27
"...And another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged... And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:12, 15
3. Understand that Jesus Christ took that penalty in your place.
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God..." I Peter 3:18
4. All you have to do is ask.
"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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Romans 10:9-10
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved." Acts 16:31
5. You can be saved and know it RIGHT NOW.
Put your trust in what Jesus Christ did for you, and pray something like this: "Lord, be merciful to me, a sinner, and save my soul for Jesus’ sake." Pray to God, and remember, the prayer doesn't save you; Jesus Christ does.
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life." I John 5:13
If you believed what you just read from God's word, and asked the Lord to save you, YOU ARE SAVED. And always remember, there is nothing that you or anyone else could ever do to change that!
Now, get yourself a King James Bible (that's the REAL ONE!), read it every day, and attend a BIBLE-BELIEVING church so you can find out what God has prepared for you in life.
