God's Plan for You

The ABC's of Salvation

Some people think a personal relationship with God is something only theologians can comprehend. Actually, God's plan of salvation is simple enough for everyone to understand. Here are the ABCs of salvation.

Admit

Admit to God that you are a sinner. Everyone needs salvation. Each of us has a problem the Bible calls sin.  Sin is anything we do that is wrong. Everyone who does not live a life of perfect obedience to the Lord is guilty of sin. "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).  Since none of us are perfect, all of us are sinners (Romans 3:10-18).

The result of sin is spiritual death (Romans 6:23). Spiritual death means eternal separation from God. By God's perfect standard, we are guilty of sin and therefore subject to the punishment for sin, which is separation from God.  Admitting that you are a sinner and separated from God is the first step of repentance, which is turning from sin and self and turning toward God.

 

Believe

Believe in Jesus Christ as God's Son and receive Jesus' gift of forgiveness from sin.  God loves each of us.  God offers us salvation.  Although we have done nothing to deserve His love and salvation, God wants to save us. In the death of Jesus on the cross, God provided salvation for all who would repent of their sins and believe in Jesus. "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. " (John 3:16)

 

Confess

Will you ADMIT that you are a sinner in need of salvation?  Do you BELIEVE that Jesus is the only Savior who came into this world and paid the penalty for YOUR sin?  Then Confess to Him your sin, Confess your belief in Him, and with the words of your mouth Confess your acceptance of His free gift of salvation.  (Romans 10:9)
