What Must I do to be Saved?

 

SALVATION IS THE GRACE OF GOD

God has a gift for man that cannot be earned or bought.

 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesian 2:8-9

REALIZE THAT YOU ARE A SINNER

For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

The Bible condemns sin. When Adam fell, the whole human race plunged into the dark waters of judgment where we stand dead in our sin. Until you see yourself in that state, hopeless, and headed for Hell, you will never be saved. However, if you realize your lost estate and the fear of that realization is such that you see the wickedness of your sin and desire to be saved then there is hope.

REPENT OF YOUR SIN

I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Luke 13:3

You must also repent. Repentance is not some work that you do. It must be a change in the way you feel about your sin. In essence turn from your sin because you perceive that it is evil and that you are headed for Hell. Your sin should make you feel sad and sorry. You must change your mind about sin and want God to end its power over you. After all, sin is so bad it took Christ’s death to make forgiveness possible for you.

BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST IN FAITH

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but shall have everlasting life. John 3:16

Christ died on the cross for you. If you believe that his blood can cleanse you from sin and deliver you from death in Hell, then you are trusting him by faith. Having faith in God and calling on him to save you is the ultimate surrender and admittance of your inability to save yourself.

CALL ON THE LORD

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9

You must believe in Christ and receive Him personally into your life by faith if you are to be saved from the power of sin and its consequences.  Prayer does not save you, you pray for help to be saved, because you cannot save yourself.
