May We ask You a Question?

If you were to take you last breath today and enter into eternity, do you know where you would go?

Salvation can be yours today, it is a free gift from God.

You may say, why do I need to worry about this thing called salvation?  

You have the questions and the Bible has the answers.

?Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.?

(Romans 5:12)

All mankind has come from Adam, so because of Adam?s sin, way back in the Garden of Eden after he was created by God, Adam?s sin has passed to every child born of man and woman since.

?For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.?

(Romans 3:23)

So what difference does it make if I sin?

?For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.?                                                     

(Romans 6:23)

So what can I do about it? Nothing!  But God has made a way for you.

?But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."                                                

(Romans 5:8)

What do you mean by, Christ die for us?

?Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures;?                                                               

(1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

Why would God and his Son, Jesus Christ, do this for me?

?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 3:16 - 17)

What does it mean to be saved?

?He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."

(John 3:36)

Then can anybody be saved?

?But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.?                        

(John 1:12)

What can I do to help make this happen?  Nothing!

?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."

(Ehpesians 2:8 - 9)

So how can I be saved?

?But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.?                                                             

(Romans 10:8 ? 10)

?Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.?                                 

(Matthew 10:32)

Can I ever know if I am truly saved and going to heaven when I die?

?And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."

(1 John 5:11 - 13)

You need to not only believe in your mind that Jesus is the Son of God and that he paid for your sins by dieing on the cross for you and that he rose again from the dead and is now in heaven with the Father, but you must believe that in you heart as well. Believing is what saves you and nothing else.  If you believe in your mind and heart what God?s word says here in the Scriptures are ture and that it is for you, you are saved. ?Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.? (Acts 16:30b-31a)  If you have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ for you salvation  today, and on that alone, would you let us know so we can praise God along with you.  You can reach us by email at: dbslothower@abwe.cc

You may say, ?What if I now do something wrong, will I loose my salvation??

?In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.?

(Ephesians 1:13 ? 14 NKJV)

The good news is that once you are saved you can never, never loose your salvation.

Welcome to the family of God!
