Depending on your family upbringing or religious background, you may have heard a variety of ideas about salvation.
Perhaps you think it’s about being a “good person” so that you can go to heaven when you die. Or that it is something you earn by doing good deeds and something you lose when you do bad things. Maybe, you’re not sure what it is at all.
What is Salvation?
Jesus did not come to this earth to set up a religion. He came to create friends that He could live in relationship with forever.
Yes, it’s true that eternal life includes going to Heaven after we die; however, we believe abundant life is ours right now, and it begins the moment we place our faith in Jesus.
God would love to step into a relationship with you. He wants to live every single day in your life with you, and He made this possible by sending His Son Jesus.
Our sin keeps us from having a relationship with God, and it would take a perfect sacrifice to pay the penalty for our sins. Jesus laid down His life and was crucified on a cross in our place, all because He loves us.
The Bible says,
“There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13
It’s not about joining a church or a religion. It’s about stepping into this relationship with God.
If you would reach out to him in faith, you can receive this forgiveness for your sins and become God’s child today.
Do you agree with everything you have read so far? If you do, don't wait a moment longer to start your new life in Jesus Christ. Remember, this prayer is not a magical formula. You are simply expressing your heart to God. Pray this with us:
"Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
