 What must I do to be saved?

1. ACKNOWLEDGE: (YOUR SIN) "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).

2. REPENT: (OF YOUR SIN) "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out" (Acts 3:19).

3. CONFESS: (YOUR SIN) "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteous ness" (1 John 1:9).

4. FORSAKE: (YOUR SIN) "Le t the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto the Lord…for he will abundantly par don" (Isaiah 55:7).

5. BELIEVE: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only be gotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16)

6. RECEIVE: "He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 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" (John 1:11,12).

WHAT TO PRAY: Dear Lord Jesus I am a sinner. I believe that you died for my sins. Right now I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I receive you as my personal Lord and Savior. Through the help of the Holy Spirit I will serve you all the days of my life.

WHAT IS SALVATION?

John 1:11-13 He came to his own and His own received him not. 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: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

The Philippians' jailer in the book of Acts asked Paul and Silas, what must I do to be saved? (Acts 16:31) This question has echoed down the corridors of time until this present day.  The plan of salvation is simple yet to many it is perplexing. 

This passage of scripture in John chapter one, teaches us how one finds salvation from the power of sin.  The answer is found in these verses. The issue of salvation is treated negatively then positively. 

As a preface to the treatment of the manner of salvation, we read this declaration: “to as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God.” 

Praise God, there is a way that one can find eternal salvation. There is a way that we can be adopted into the family of God. There is a way we can obtain a righteous standing before a holy God. 

Please turn your attention to John 1:13..

"Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” 

Here we read three ways (Click the link to read) by which one cannot become a child of God, and only one way by which we can obtain salvation.
