TO BE SAVED, GOD WANTS YOU TO FIRST UNDERSTAND HIS WORD…
Realize you are a sinner.
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
Realize there is a penalty for sin.
“For the wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23
Realize Jesus Christ paid your sins.
“But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
Realize God loves you.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Realize that you can call on the name of the Lord and be saved.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
Realize God’s saving gift to you is by grace through faith, not by your own good deeds.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—
and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works,
so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9
