As we continue to see what the Bible says about salvation, we know that when we talk about being saved, we are talking about being saved from God’s wrath. We are all sinners and sin separates us from God. The Bible also tells us that only God can remove our sin and deliver us from sin’s penalty. And He does that through His Son Jesus Christ. So, we know the what, who and how but how do we receive salvation? First of all, we must hear the gospel. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17 KJV) Then we need to believe what we hear. The Bible says: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:16-17 KJV) First we hear the gospel, then we believe what we have heard and then we repent of our sins. “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out...” (Acts 3:19 KJV) Do you believe what the Bible says about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ? Do you believe that Jesus paid for our sins? Do you believe that Jesus is the only way to God? Then the Bible says: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10 KJV) Salvation comes through Christ to everyone. The Bible says: “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13 KJV) The Bible is clear that everyone is a sinner and in need of a Savior and yet many think they have to do something to earn that salvation. The Bible never tells us that we have to do anything except believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It was God’s plan that Jesus would pay for our sins and we would receive the gift of eternal life with God when we believe that Jesus has done all the work for us and receive Him as our Savior. The Bible tells us that we need to turn from our sin, confess Jesus as Savior, be baptized and commit our lives to obey God’s Word. However, these are not what saves us…they are the results of salvation. Remember what Jesus said: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6 KJV)
