God’s Plan of Salvation

God Loves Us

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.

(John 3:16)

But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

(Romans 5:8)

Our sin separates us from God

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)

Jesus Christ has made reconciliation with God possible

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

(Romans 6:23)

Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”

(John 14:6)

Our response: repent and believe

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will go in and eat with him and he with Me.

(Revelation 3:20)

Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed on His name, He gave the right to become the children of God.

(John 1:12)

How can I become a child of God?

  1. Admit your need. (I am a sinner)
  2. Be willing to turn from your sins. (Repent)
  3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave. (Faith)
  4. Through prayer, invite Jesus to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit. (Receive Him as Lord and Savior)

Prayer

Lord Jesus, I need you.  Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins.  I open the door of my life and receive you as my Savior and Lord.  Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life.  Take control of my life and help me to turn from my sins.  Make me the kind of person you want me to be.  Amen
