What is salvation in Jesus? In simple terms, it means accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things have passed away, and behold, all things have become new. This is what salvation means. It is the believers’ encounter with Jesus. It is God’s gift only to those who believe in Jesus. It is reserved for those who would dare to believe in the Lord God Almighty. And hear me: salvation is your passport to heaven.
John 14 vs. 5 to 6
Thomas said unto him, “Lord, we know not whither you go, and how can we know the way?” Jesus said unto him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes unto the Father but by me.”
Jesus, the Way to Eternal Life
Like Thomas, you might be asking similar questions: “What is salvation?” “Am I saved?” “How can I become born again?” These questions have been asked many times in the past and have been answered. The simple answer to those questions is that you find salvation in Jesus alone.
Jesus has paid the full price for your iniquities. When he was hung on the cross, he said, “It is finished.” That is, he had paid the entire penalty for your sin. He shed his blood for you so that you could be saved. He was crucified, he died, and he rose again so that you and I could live. So, therefore, your choosing to continue in sin is like crucifying Christ a second time. Please, please, please! Make up your mind now to follow Jesus before it is too late.
Believe me, if Jesus hadn’t died for you, your case would have been worse. But thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift. The gift of salvation is that God did not hold back His Son but rather gave up His Son, Jesus, for our sake. God will give you a helping hand if you call upon him.
Have you heard that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God? (Romans 3:23) By nature, we are sinners, caused by the disobedience of Adam and Eve. (Genesis 3:1-24) It was through them that sin entered the world. The original plan of God was for man to reign on earth forever. But after they were deceived by the devil through their willful disobedience to God’s Word, sin and death followed. However, God has made a way for us to return to him through salvation in Jesus’ name.
In another passage of the Bible, it says, “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.” Galatians 3:22. So, we are all summed up in sin. However, God made a way through faith in Jesus. So anyone who comes to God must believe He is God. You must have faith in Him through Jesus Christ, his Son. It is only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God and Lord over their lives who will be saved.
Give Your Life to Christ
I am sure that you want to spend your life in eternity with God. I believe that you are tired of living life the way you do, and that is why you are here. If this is true, then I will ask you to surrender your life to Jesus. Jesus is ready to save you, but the first step is for you to call upon him in prayer, and he will answer you. You can say this prayer of salvation now so that God will save you.
