| How To Be Saved |

What does it require to achieve heaven? What does God demand? Sacrifices, pittance, commitments, or at the very least, repentance, most would reply.

Scripture states something entirely different. What must we do to receive eternal life upon death?

Nothing save claiming the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness and salvation.

Insane, the majority of those claiming religion would shout.
The truth defies much of modern theology's persuasions and arguments. What must we do to be forgiven, to receive salvation, and to know for certain that heaven is our destination following our final breath?

"Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved."

Jesus Christ, the perfect, incarnate Son of God, sacrificed His divinity and rightful station at the throne of His Father to shed His precious blood for the sake of sinful humanity. So that each one of us would have the opportunity to receive salvation and escape the punishment that our sinful natures dictate.

Three days after His crucifixion, He conquered the grave and returned to His Father in heaven. His sacrifice was complete. Now, it's up to us.

Do we believe that His death, His shed blood, and His resurrection are the sole means of attaining eternal life?

All that we need to do to receive salvation is believe. Embrace the Lord Jesus' spilled blood as the only way to heaven and believe that He died for you and that His death and resurrection is sufficient to cover the cost of your sin.

Once we have received salvation through Jesus Christ, can we ever lose it?

John 10:28: “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”We have not saved ourselves, not in whole or in part. Christ is one hundred percent responsible for our redemption, and He alone merits the credit. Once we are saved, we cannot become "un-saved," as some would claim. God has performed the saving. He does not save on condition or with partnership.
If losing our salvation were possible, then we would be responsible for keeping ourselves saved, which would impart a portion of the credit to us.

"For by grace are ye saved, by faith; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast."

Will you receive God's gift of love and grace today? How many more times will you have the chance to do so before it is too late?
