God loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and shed His precious blood to pay for all of these sins (Romans 5 and John 3:14-20). It is not by any works of ours that we are saved (Ephesians 2:8-9). (See John 3:16; and 1 Corinthians 15:3-5; and Romans 5:8-11.)
If You Want to Be Born-Again and Be Saved by Jesus Christ:
If you want God to save you through Jesus Christ, and you have trusted only in Jesus to save you, then you are born-again and are truly saved. (John 6:37).
In John 6:37 Jesus says: " All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."
Please pay attention to the last part of this verse: "...and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." (If you come to Jesus, He will not cast you out.)
2) Now that you are saved, turn to God with all your heart and seek Him, seeking to have an intimate relationship with God. Our loving Abba God wants you to know Him deeply because He made us in His likeness (Genesis 1:27, John 17:3, Jeremiah 31:3). Seek Abba God in prayer and in reading the Bible. You will hear His Spirit speak to you as you seek Him and wait on Him. (Jeremiah 29:13, John 16:13, Isaiah 40:31).
Isaiah 40:31 says: " But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
3) And, now that you are saved, deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow God to have fellowship with Abba God. Denying what we want and seeking what God wants (God's will) is truly fulfilling and meaningful. Taking up one's cross and being willing to suffer for the sake of Jesus Christ brings in God's peace (2 Corinthians 1:2-3). Obeying God and following where He leads is a joy because He is always, always with us. (Matthew 16:24, Hebrews 13:5, 2 Corinthians 1:2-3).
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Romans 5:6-11 (bold added)
6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
1 Corinthians 15:3-7
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
