Gods simple plan of Salvation

God’s  Simple Plan of Salvation 

My friend: I am asking you the most important  question of your life. Your joy or your sorrow for all  eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you  saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will  go to Heaven when you die?

 God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In #Joh 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, "Ye must be born again."

 In the Bible, God gives us the plan of how  to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple!  You can be saved today. How?

 First, my friend, you must realise you are  a sinner. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (#Ro 3:23).

 Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to die. "For the wages [payment] of sin is death"  (#Ro 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell.

"... it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (#Heb 9:27).

 But God loved you so much he gave his only  begotten Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place.  "For he hath made him [Jesus, who knew no sin] to be  sin for us ... that we might be made the righteousness of  God in him" (#2Co 5:21).

 Jesus had to shed his blood and die. "For the life of the flesh is in the blood" (#Le 17:11) "...  without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]" (#Heb  9:22).

"But God commendeth his love toward  us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (#Ro 5:8).

 Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and he died in  our place. He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.

 My friend, "God ... now commandeth  all men every where to repent" (#Ac 17:30).

 This repentance is a change of mind that  agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the cross.

 In #Ac 16:30,31, the Philippian jailer asked  Paul and Silas: "... ‘Sirs, what must I do to be  saved?’ And they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus  Christ, and thou shalt be saved... .’"

 Simply believe on him as the one who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected.

 His resurrection powerfully assures that  the believer can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as Saviour.

"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" (#Jo 1:12). "For whosoever  shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"  (#Ro 10:13).

 Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means  not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved.

 Surely, you realise you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.

 In #Lu 18:13, a sinner prayed: "God be merciful to me a sinner." Just pray:

"Oh, God, I know I am a sinner. I believe  Jesus was my substitute when he died on the cross. I believe  his shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me.  I now receive him as my Saviour. I thank you for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because  of your merciful grace. Amen."

 Just take God at his word and claim his salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No church,  no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the  saving. All of it!

 God’s simple plan of salvation is:  You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus who  died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you  believe on him as your crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and his gift  of eternal salvation by faith.

 You say, "Surely, it cannot be that simple." Yes, that simple! It is scriptural. It is God’s plan. My friend, believe on Jesus and receive him as Saviour  today.

 If his plan is not perfectly clear, read  this tract over and over, without laying it down until you  understand it. Your soul is worth more than all the world.

"For what shall it profit a man, if  he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"  (#Mr 8:36).

 Be sure you are saved. If you lose your soul, you miss Heaven and lose all. Please! Let God save you  this very moment.

 God’s power will save you, keep you saved and enable you to live a victorious Christian life.  "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common  to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it" (#1Co 10:13).

 Do not trust your feelings. They change.  Stand on God’s promises. They never change. After you are saved, there are three things to practise daily for spiritual  growth: Pray—you talk to God. Read your Bible—God talks to you. Witness—you talk for God.

 You should be baptised in obedience to the  Lord Jesus Christ, as a public testimony of your salvation, and then unite with a Bible- believing church without delay. "Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our  Lord ..." (#2Ti 1:8).

"Whosoever therefore shall confess [testify of] me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven" (#Mt 10:32).
