Plan of Salvation

"Seek ye the Lord while He may be found; Call ye upon Him while He is near." Isaiah 55:6

ALL MEN ARE SINNERS
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23 "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way…" Isaiah 53:6 "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8,9 "There is none righteous, no, not one." Romans 3:10

ALL ARE UNDER THE PENALTY OF SIN
"The wages of sin is death" Romans 6:23 "…death passed upon all men, for all have sinned." Romans 5:12 "For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law; and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law." Romans 2:11, 12 The Bible teaches that the ultimate penalty for sin is eternal separation from God in the lake of fire. "Whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:15

JESUS CHRIST PAID THE PENALTY FOR SIN
"…when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly… God commended His love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us." Romans 5:6,8 "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God…" I Peter 3:18

SALVATION IS A GIFT OF GOD'S GRACE
"Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus." Romans 3:24 "In Whom (Jesus Christ) we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace." Ephesians 1:7 "…the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us…" Titus 3:5

NECESSARY RESPONSE TO THESE TRUTHS
God says we must repent of our sinful living and receive His Son as personal Savior and Lord. "Repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out…" Acts 3:19 "…God…now commandeth all men everywhere to repent, because He hath appointed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that Man whom He hath ordained; concerning which He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised him from the dead." Acts 17:30,31 "Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God; for He will abundantly pardon." Isaiah 55:7 "As many as received Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) to them gave He power (authority) to become the children of God, even to them that believe on His name." John 1:12 "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 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13 "…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…" Acts 16:31 If God is dealing with you, and you desire to be saved by God's grace and power through God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, please pray a prayer like the one that follows:

Prayer:
Dear God, knowing that I am a sinner in Your sight and therefore subject to the penalty of eternal death, I ask You to have mercy on me because Your Son died to pay for my sin. I now repent of my thoughts, words, and deeds which have been contrary to Your standards of right as revealed in the Bible. I ask You to save me from my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. Believing that this saving and this eternal life are to be received by receiving Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, I now receive Him by faith as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you, Father, for saving me. Amen.
