By faith, you must trust in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life and call upon Him to be your Savior and Lord.
Many religious people admit they have sinned. They believe Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world but they are not saved. Why? Thousands of moral, religious people have never completely placed their faith in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life. They think they must believe in Jesus Christ as a real person and do good works to earn their way to heaven. They are not trusting Jesus Christ alone. To be saved, you must trust in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life. Look what the Bible teaches about trusting Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved (Acts 16:31).
…that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “Whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved (Rom. 10:9–10, 12–13).
Do you see what God is saying? To be saved or born again, you must trust Jesus Christ alone for eternal life. Jesus Christ paid for your complete salvation. Jesus said, It is finished (John 19:30). Jesus paid for your salvation completely when He shed His blood on the cross for your sin.
If you believe that God resurrected Jesus Christ (proving God’s acceptance of Jesus as a worthy sacrifice for man’s sin) and you are willing to confess Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord (Master of your life), you will be saved.
Friend, right now God is offering you the greatest gift in the world. God wants to give you the gift of eternal life, the gift of His complete forgiveness for all your sins, and the gift of His unconditional acceptance into heaven when you die. Will you accept His free gift now, right where you are?
Are you unsure how to receive the gift of eternal life? Let me help you. Do you remember that I said you needed to understand and accept four essential spiritual truths? First, you admitted you are a sinner. Second, you admitted you were separated from God because of your sin and you could not save yourself. Third, you realized that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven — no other name can save you.
Now, you must trust that Jesus Christ died once and for all to save your lost soul. Just take God at His word — He will not lie to you! This is the kind of simple faith you need to be saved. If you would like to be saved right now, right where you are, offer this prayer of simple faith to God. Remember, the words must come from your heart.
God, I am a sinner and deserve to go to hell. Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for me and for purchasing a place in heaven for me. I believe you are the Son of God and you are able to save me right now. Please forgive me for my sin and take me to heaven when I die. I invite you into my life as Savior and Lord and I trust you alone for eternal life. Thank you for giving me the gift of eternal life. Amen.
If in the best way you know how, you trusted Jesus Christ alone to save you, then God just saved you. He said in His Holy Word, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God. (John 1:12). It’s that simple. God just gave you the gift of eternal life by faith. You have just been born again according to the Bible.
You will not come into eternal judgment, and you will not perish in the lake of fire — you are saved forever! Read this verse carefully and let it sink into your heart.
Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life (John 5:24).
Friend, you’ve just been born again. You just became a child of God.
