What does the Bible say about being Saved!

What does it mean to be saved? It means o be preserved from final and everlasting judgment and destruction. To be rescued from eternal death forever in the fires of hell!     1 Tim.1.15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, so none of us can escape, because we are all sinners!


First, why are people doomed to eternal separation in hell?

            Because man is sinner!  Rom.5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:  We are born with a sin nature. That one man was Adam and in his rebellion and disobedience to God he plunged the world into sin. Genesis 3

The Bible further tells us in… Rom.3:10-13, 23   10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;   No one is able to approach God unless they come by the only way available which is Jesus Christ.  John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


Secondly, the consequences of our sin is physical and spiritual death forever! Rev.20:11-15

 11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. The unbeliever will be cast into the lake of fire forever with no hope.

 Rom. 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.


My friend you owe a wage that you cannot pay except you die physically and eternally in the lake of fire.

How can a person be "saved?"     There is only one place to find the answer God's Word.

You Must Repent ! Luke 13:2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? 3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Repentance is a deep sorrow for things done or said, a regret for past conduct, a deep contrition for sin, and understanding that we have offended a Holy God, a change of your attitude toward sin.

My friend you must see yourself as God sees you, lost and undone, a hopeless sinner under the condemnation of the Lord.

John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

You must receive by Faith the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour


John3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.


Ephesians2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

My friend Grace is God's unmerited love and kindness to you. He doesn't have to love you but He does. You cannot earn that which is freely given. No amount of good works i.e.; baptism, money, church attendance, or sincerity in any false unbiblical hope will get you to heaven; only receiving Christ as the payment for your sin will suffice.


John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Rom.10:9 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.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

My friend do you see what you must do is to trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour. He is the only Way.


John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


Would you humble yourself right now and receive Jesus Christ as your Savior? He has already done His part by dying on the cross in your place, now you must trust Him to take you to heaven when you die. Maybe you could just pray something like this; and remember it is the heart that God sees and knows …


Dear Jesus I know I am a sinner. I am sorry for my sin and do not want to go to hell. Please save me and take me to heaven when I die. Right now I receive you as my personal Saviour. Thank you for giving me everlasting life. Amen
