1Peter 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. 22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION
Acknowledge you are a sinner who needs to be saved and that you cannot save yourself.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
Romans 5:8 But God commends his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Ephesians 2:8-10 For by grace are you saved, through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not by works lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.
Believe that God loves you and desires to forgive you, believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He is the only way to heaven.
John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
II Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
Confess and repent of your sins to God, tell Him that you are sorry and want to be forgiven.
I John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Romans 10:9-13 That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture says, Whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
If you read this and realize that you are hopelessly lost, that there is nothing you can do to earn your way into heaven, all that remains to do is to ask God to save you. “If you ask, God will answer!”
Dear Lord Jesus, forgive me of my sins, cleanse my heart of all sin and wickedness, come in to my life and be my Lord and Savior. I believe you shed your precious blood on the cross; you died and rose again on the third day for me. Save me Jesus, I know I can’t save myself. Thank you for giving me eternal life and a place in heaven with you. Amen.
Remember this, what Jesus has done in the past, He will do in the future. If you call out to Him, He will answer you. What He will do for one person, He will do for another. God is not a respecter of persons and He doesn’t show favoritism. He will help anybody who calls out to Him. “You can take that to the bank!”
Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
