The Bible says, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household” (Acts 16:31). Romans 10:9 says, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him (Jesus) from the dead, you will be saved.” The Bible further says, “that with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:10).
The Scriptures also says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” “For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call on Him. For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved” (Romans 10:11-13).
“Thus, it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that (1) repentance and (2) remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. And, behold, (3) I send the promise of My Father upon” (Luke 24:46-49).
“Then Peter said unto them, (1) Repent, and (2) be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and (3) you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, ev3n as many as the Lord our God shall call” (Acts 2:38-39).
“Jesus said except a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 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 hot his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3: 3,5, 16-17 KJV).
Further Scripture Verses: Jesus Christ Died (1 Corinthians 15:1-3); Jesus Christ Was Buried (1 Corinthians 15:4); Jesus Christ Rose Again! (1 Corinthians 15:4); We Must Repent (Romans 6:2); We Must Be Baptized (Romans 6:3-4); We Must Rise Again (Romans 6:4: 8:2).
The Bible also says that “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son” (John 3:18). The path that rejects God not only leads to unhappiness, but also the destination is eternal suffering.
“For the wages of sin is death; … (Romans 6:23a) … but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23b). “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:1-2).
The question is: what decision will you make? Jesus said: “whoever come to me I will never drive away” (John 6:37).
“As it is written, ‘There is none righteous, no, not one. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God’” (Romans 3:10, 23).
“How shall we escape, if we neglect so great Salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).
Remember, your decision has eternal consequences.
Sinner’s Prayer: Lord Jesus, I am sorry for my sins and I ask You to forgive me. I open the door of my heart and receive You as my Lord and Savior. Take control of my life and begin making me that person You want me to be. Thank You, Lord Jesus for saving me. In the Lord Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
“You shall mediate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success” (Joshua 1:8).
Your daily walk with the Lord should include reading your Bible every day, talking to God in prayer daily, and finding a church where the Bible is taught as the Word of God. Life is short but eternity is forever!! “Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am alpha and omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do His commandments that they may have right to the tree of life and may enter in through the gates into the city. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.” (Revelation 22:12-14, 21)
