Wondering About God?
My Friend: I am asking you the most important question of life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?
God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, In the Bible God gives us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple! You can be saved today. How?
First, my friend, you must realize you are a sinner. (Romans 3:23). Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to death. (Romans 6:23a). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell. (Hebrews 9:27).
But God loved you so much (John 3:16) Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Jesus had to shed His blood and die for us. (Leviticus 17:11). (Hebrews 9:22). (Romans 5:8).
Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus ( 1 Peter 2:24) and He died in our place. He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.
My friend, (Acts 17:30). This repentance is a change of mind and heart that agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the cross.
In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas: And they said, . Simply believe on Him as the one who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected. His resurrection powerfully assures that the believer can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as Savior. (John 1:12). (Romans 10:13).
Whosoever includes you, Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved. Surely, you realize you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer just like in Luke 18:13, the sinner prayed: .
Just take God at His word and claim His salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No church, no lodge, no good works can save you (....Ephesians 2:8-9). Remember, God does the saving. All of it!
God's simple plan of salvation is: You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus who died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on Him as your crucified, buried, and risen Savior, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and His gift of eternal salvation by faith.
You may say, "Surely, it cannot be that simple." Yes, that simple! It is scriptural. But it was not simple for Christ to suffered and died for our sake in Calvary. It is God's plan. My friend, believe on Jesus and receive Him as your Savior today. Your soul is worth more than the entire world, (Mark 8:36).
Be sure you are saved. If you lose your soul, you miss Heaven and lose all. Let God save you this very moment. God's power will save you, keep you saved, and enable you to live a victorious Christian life.
Stand on God's promises. They never change.
