What it means to be Saved

We are all sinners. We were born into this world as such since the fall of man in the garden of Eden. Man fell from God's plan but he desires to restore man because He loves us. In John 3:16 it says "For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son that whoever believes in Him will not die, but have eternal life." All we have to do is acccept Him and follow his will for our lives.  A simple way to understand this is the ABCs.

 

A. Admit you are a sinner.
"There is no one righteous, not even one ... for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:10,23. (See Romans 5:8; 6:23.)
Ask God's forgiveness.
"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13
B. Believe in Jesus
(put your trust in Him) as your only hope of salvation. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 (See John 14:6.)
Become a child of God by receiving Christ.
"To all who receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12 (See Revelation 3:20.)
C. Confess that Jesus is your Lord.
"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 (See verse 10.)
