Salvation

WHY AM I HERE?

You came to this page from a link on my blog, or you were searching for information on getting saved on the internet. No matter how you got here, I am glad you are here. When someone says they are a Christian, what do they mean? It means that they have asked Jesus into their heart. Isn’t that amazing that Jesus loves us so much that He died on our behalf?

WHY DID JESUS HAVE TO DIE?

We need to understand how sin entered the world to answer that question. Sin entered the world via Adam and Eve at the beginning of the world. When sin entered the world, we as humans got separated from God because God can’t stand the sight of sin. God loved us so much that He sent a redeemer to this sinful world; that redeemer is His Son, Jesus. God, Jesus’ father, sent Jesus down to earth to be born and live a sinless life on earth. Then He died on a cross for my sins and your sins. Jesus did not have to die; He chose to die for us to wash away our sins. So we could live with Him forever in Heaven.

HOW DOES A DEAD MAN SAVE ME?

I have great news, Jesus is not dead. He rose three days later. We as Christians don’t serve a dead Savior; we serve a living Savior. He was laid in a tomb; a stone was rolled in front of that tomb. Three days later, He arose like he said He would. It says in Luke 24:1-7, Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’”

HOW DO I BECOME SAVED?

Getting saved is simple; you have to pray the sinner’s pray. God is always listening to anyone praying the sinner’s prayer. But you can’t just say the prayer; you need to mean it in your heart. Pray this prayer: Jesus, I love you, and I know you came down to this earth as a baby and lived a sinless life. So you could die on the cross for my sins. Then you rose on the third day to conger sin and death. I ask you into my heart and save me today. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen

If you prayed that prayer and believed in your heart, I believe you got saved.
