how can i be saved?
2,000 years ago an event happened that changed the world. The God of all creation, sent His son Jesus to come to earth. Jesus was no ordinary man though, He was God Himself. God had come to earth as a man to save the world. A sacrifice was required to bridge the gap from sinful man, to a perfect God in heaven.
With no suitable sacrifice, Jesus became the offering himself to bear the sins of the world, so that we can live in communion with God. After 30 years, teaching and preaching the gospel, it was time for Jesus to complete His mission on earth. Jesus was crucified on a Roman cross, where He took the punishment of the sins of all the world on Him. The story is not over yet though, 3 days later Christ arose from the dead, defeating death.
When Jesus left earth to return to heaven, He left us with a gospel to put our faith in that requires nothing but faith alone. The Gospel is simple, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. Put your faith in Him and you will be saved. No action is required, no ritual to preform, nothing but faith is required to become a child of God.
Salvation with it a new life in Christ. This new life brings hope, joy, peace, and overall satisfaction in Christ. When you become a christian, God's spirit will live within you to guide and direct your steps. He will answer your prayers, help you to defeat temptation, and show you a love you have never known before. Perhaps the most impactful aspect of salvation, is that from which you are saved from. Scripture tells us that salvation is the act of saving you from an eternity in Hell, a place of eternal punishment that awaits all those who reject Christ. Instead of this fate, salvation allows us to live in communion with God in Heaven forever. Become a child of God today, accept His free gift of salvation.
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.
