One is saved by God’s grace alone through faith alone in Christ based on His finished work alone. In light of Christ’s death for our sins and bodily resurrection, the issue in salvation is not having to DO something, but that Jesus has already DONE it. The basis is not our walk, but Christ’s finished work. The way is not works but simply faith. The proper response to the gospel is to believe it. Your faith alone in Jesus Christ will set you free!
Before a person who has any interest in knowing Jesus Christ, they at some point need to know why we need to be saved in the first place. The answer is that we are all sinners. The penalty of our sins is separation from God. Which means the only way to heaven is to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Without knowing the reason why we need to be saved, becoming saved does not make a lot of sense. It is not until one understands that they are a sinner and can not save myself, we need a Savior in Jesus Christ. ~ Bill Greguska
Tony Evans Shares The Gospel In A Simple Way!
Today Is The Day To Be Saved!
When I claimed the date of June 25, 1986, I was saved because I was told the Gospel many times (if you do not know the day), the important thing is to know you are saved. I did not know for sure if I was saved or not. I wanted to have a specific day, so I prayerfully asked God, narrowing it down to that day. It was the very last time I ever smoked marijuana while I was in long-term treatment. Many people were trying to help me and pray for me during those years.
I chose that day to be the day that I got the scales off my eyes and could see clearly that I was a sinner heading for hell. It was not necessarily a feeling that I had, it was more of an assurance that I was in God’s hand, and I could not be taken away from Him ever. God wanted me saved because it says in His word, so He said it, I believe it, and that is that!
Keeping The GOSPEL Simple, To Understand Why We Need Salvation!
Pointing People to You, Lord
(This section is from The Book I wrote)
Lord, please help me make a better effort to point others to you, either by my words or actions. I can share what my life was before I got to know you, how my life has changed because I know you, and finally, where I see you leading me in the future. Thinking of this makes me ask myself if my walk with you has been something that I would be glad to share with others, or if there is any unconfessed sin in my life that I still need to deal with.
Your word tells me to share the gospel with those who don’t know you, no matter where I meet them — near home or far away. Give me the wisdom to know how to best do that. Help me speak clearly, so I can share your word with others and challenge them to open their hearts and minds. I need to ask myself each day what I’m doing to point family and friends to you, and make sure to keep this a priority.
In the past, I would be intimidated when I wanted to talk about you to others. I remember a thought that I’m sure was from the devil, telling me I’d better not speak up for you, Lord, because if I was challenged, I would not have the right answers. I’ve learned that even if I can’t answer every question, I can look into it more and talk to the person later. Sharing my personal testimony is the safest and most effective way to point people to you, Lord, because no one can debate what you have done in my life!
Matthew 28:19 ~ [Jesus said,] “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
I hope we never get to the point that we put ourselves in Jesus’ place. But when I read the New Testament basically, we get three mandates: to love God, to love each other, and to take care of the least among us. And I think this is at least a step in the right direction. ~ Robert Riley, American politician who served as the 52nd Governor of Alabama.
