Nr. 3: How to be saved?

Questions 3:

How to be saved?


The Bible says that whosoever shall call upon the Lord's name shall be saved (Rom 10, 13). All those who received Jesus, to them gave he power to become children of God, those who believe in His name (John 1:12). This is the Biblical answer the question: How will I be saved?

We mention two examples from the Bible. The first is a prison guard in the prison in the city of Philippi. He is in distress and asks: "What should I do to be saved?" (Acts 16.30), Paul answers: "Believe on the Lord Jesus, and thou shalt be saved.” The second example is the robber hanging on the cross next to Jesus. Also, the robber was sentenced to death. He says the Lord: "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom,” Jesus says: "Today you will be with me in Paradise." (Luke 23.42-43)

We have all sinned. Rom. 3. “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard” (New Living Translation). Therefore we must be saved. It is only Jesus who can save. "There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4.12)
It is clear God's will that he will save and heal and put in freedom. It was on the cross Jesus triumphed over sin and death. There, he paid all our debts when he gave his blood. You and I receive perfect cleansing without reference to good works. Everything is Grace. God forgives perfectly.

God loves you even before you was born, hove mush more now?
Rom. 5. 8: “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” (New Living Translation)
