What to do to be SAVED
Sin separates us from God. We have all sinned and we come short of the glory of God and that is why the world is separated from God and doomed to eternal damnation. The only way to be saved is to be delivered of the guilt of our sin and to then come into the presence of God and stay with Him for eternity.
The only way that we can get rid of the guilt of our sin and come into the presence of God is through Jesus Christ, through OBEYING Jesus. We must REPENT, turn away from sin, turn away from going our own ways, TURN to Jesus, plead Him forgiveness for our past sin and He will cleanse us of all unrighteousness. Then we have to further OBEY Him and be baptized in water as a confession of our faith in Jesus Christ and our commitment to follow and obey Him. And then a wonderful thing will happen, He will make us NEW inside. We will be BORN AGAIN to be children of God. He will give His Spirit to come and dwell in us. He promised to baptize us in the Holy Spirit so that the Spirit of Christ will dwell in us and connect us with God, with Jesus Christ Himself and we can be in communion, in relationship with Jesus Christ, but we have to STAY with Him, LISTEN to the Holy Spirit, OBEY Him, FOLLOW Him, be pure and holy and He will guide us into all truth. He will teach us all things because we will live in the presence of God. That is the only way to be saved.
The world believes lies. They have been told that if they only believe in Jesus Christ they will be saved. We have to BELIEVE and OBEY His words, the gospel of Jesus Christ, that which He commanded, that which was also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and it was fulfilled in the book of Acts when the Holy Spirit was given to those who OBEYED the gospel of Jesus Christ. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and went on to follow Jesus Christ under guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Are you being SAVED? Did you OBEY the gospel of Jesus Christ? Did you repent? Were you baptized in water and did you receive the Holy Spirit as also the first believers did? Do you LISTEN to the Holy Spirit? Do you OBEY and FOLLOW Him? Do you live in the presence of God? Are you BEING SAVED?
Stay with Jesus. Endure with Him until the very end. Listen, obey and follow Him and you will be saved.
May Jesus bless you.
