THE PATH TO SALVATION
AS PRESENTED IN SCRIPTURE



1) His PLAN :
God loves you and wants to give you abundant life.

 

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD , "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

 

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17




2) Your NEED :
Sin separates you from God and His life.

 

For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge. Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Psalms 51:3-5

 

But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you,so that he will not hear. Isaiah 59:2

 

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23



3) His PROVISION :
Jesus is the way and died in your place.

 

For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17

 

For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living. Romans 14:9

 



4) Your CONFESSION :
Repent and confess your sin to Him.

 

Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD "- and you forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah Psalms 32:5

 

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9



5) His PROMISE :
Believe that He died for 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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:16-17

 

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6



6) Your CHOICE :
Pray and receive Him as your Savior.

 

That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9

 

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11
