What Do You need to be saved?

Updated on August 24, 2016

What Do You need to be saved?

What do you need to be Saved?

Hmmm, I am worried, my sins are too numerous to number, can God ever forgive me? If this statement reflects your thought, you are not alone. Several people around the world are continually worried along this line of thought and some of them are already enjoying the forgiveness of Christ.

Jesus made it known to us that He had not come for the already saved but for the unsaved. A healthy person does not require the service of a physician is one of his popular quotes.

Now, that I am aware of salvation, what next?

In the book of John chapter 3, Nicodemus came to Jesus and asked Him on the price he had to pay for him to inherit the kingdom of God. Jesus replied him swiftly, Verily, Verily I say unto you, except a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Wow, this is confusing, I am 70 years old, I cannot enter my mother’s womb again

Nicodemus asked a similar question; being born again is not about entering your mother’s womb once again but accepting Jesus as your Lord and savior. All you have to do is confess him as your Lord and savior.

Who is Jesus?

Jesus is the Son of God, he was sent to reconcile the world to his father. His father is the creator of the world and He is the only begotten Son of His father. He is not selfish; he wants us to be joint heirs with Him to the throne.

God is not married, how can He have a son?

God is not man; he made all things for his pleasure. The heavens and the earth were created by him. He is all knowing and is present everywhere at every time. He is not limited like us. John chapter 1 said, in the beginning, was the word and the word were with God and the word was God. Jesus is the word of God that became flesh and made His dwelling among us. Jesus is the very nature of God. He has been with God and He is God. As a man, your word is you so also the word of God is God.

John 3:16 says For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him will not perish but have eternal life. There is no love that can exceed the love the Father has for us. He gave his all for us who were his enemies. We sinned and this led to the creation of a vacuum between ourselves and our creator. Jesus is here to bridge that gap created after we ate the forbidden fruit in the garden.

What! Why did God plant that tree that brought death to the world?

We were never designed as robots; the tree was put in place to test us to see what is in our heart. He wants to ascertain if we will obey him and yield ourselves to His instruction. Even Jesus, the son of God learnt obedience. He wants us to learn to obey him all the time. Remember, perfect liberty always has a boundary.

Please, I am ready for this salvation. How much will I pay?

Salvation is free because it has been paid for by Jesus. All you have to do is to say this prayer “Lord Jesus, I realize myself as a sinner, I confess all my sins and I am repenting of them all. Please give me the grace to walk with you till the very end. In Jesus name, I have prayed. Amen

Now that I am saved. What next?

You are welcome to the fellowship of Jesus as a friend. The next step is for you to join a bible believing church in your area where your faith can be continually nursed and groomed as we await the coming of our Lord. May we not be found wanting on that day, when the trumpet shall sound. Amen
