How Jesus Christ Saves
God loves you. He chose to send Jesus Christ to provide a way for you to have eternal life. The alternative is the second death spoken of in Revelation 21:8.
“But for the cowardly, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and sexually immoral persons, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
The Bible clearly states the fact of a Second Death. Are you ready to face the Lord? Do you fall within any of the categories described in this verse?
Jesus Christ died on the Cross of Calvary for your sin, our sin and the worlds sin. Everyone has the opportunity to overcome sin and be forgiven. The key is being “Born Again” while you live on Earth.
It may sound that a strange term, but Jesus Christ clearly said that you must be born again.
Look at this Scripture from the Gospel of John. Read John 3:1-15. This Scripture proceeds the verse that shows up at football games, is listed on posts and mentioned by many Christians. Yes, John 3:16!
Some of the highlights of John 3:1-15 are as follows:
Jesus responded and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless someone is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
- If you are not born again, you cannot _________ the kingdom of God.
- The kingdom exists — you just cannot see it. Christian’s can and do.
Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless someone is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.”
- Unless someone is born of water and the Spirit, he _______ enter the kingdom of God.
- Christians can enter the kingdom of God. Unbelieving cannot enter.
As stated, these scriptures preceeds John 3:16. This verse describes the mercy of God. His love was poured out graciously upon mankind.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.”
Jesus Christ is not referring to an intellectual belief. He is referring to a life-changing belief. A transformation by the power of the Holy Spirit. Being born again to a living hope of eternal life.
Read Acts 2:36-39
