Ephesians 4:15 "...speaking the truth in love..."
Being “saved” means we as humans are saved from eternal death.
God provided a way for that to happen-by saving us through His Son, Jesus Christ.
How did he do that? Why would he do that?
First we must understand God’s character. God alone is holy, just, and righteous. He is the creator of life and of everything. God reigns over all He has created. He is all knowing and everywhere at once. Genesis 2:4, “These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,”
As humans we are sinners, in Romans 3:23 the apostle Paul wrote, “ For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Because we are sinners we are separated from God by that sin. And unfortunately Paul reminds us, ”For the wages of sin is death;” in Romans 6:23a.
God is also a loving God and has a plan to save us from this eternal death and the wages of sin. He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to take our place. “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.” John 3:16
That’s right. God knew we had no way to come to Him on our own, so He sent Jesus to die in our place, as our ransom. Jesus was without sin and did not deserve to die, but His sacrifice was perfect and acceptable to God so that we may live instead. Romans 6:23b “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Salvation cannot be bought, it is a gift available to all who confess and believe in faith. Ephesians 2:8-9 "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."
To be saved, confess that you are a sinner and call on the name of Jesus Christ alone, Romans 10:13 reads, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
If you are ready for to make that confession, please contact Pastor Chad at firstname.lastname@example.org, to discuss the next step. We would like to talk with you and walk with you in your faith. It is not about religious works or rituals but it is a personal relationship with Jesus. We would like to help you grow in that relationship with Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
