What is Salvation and How Do I Receive it ?


God in his mercy-delivered us out of the power of darkness (sin) , and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of our sins: Colossians 1:13; 14

What is Salvation and how do I receive it ?
When Jesus died for you and I, He delivered us from the power of darkness, which we are all born into.  Being born into sin merely means we are unaware of who God is and  what he desires of us therefore we are in darkness. You can not live your life the way God intended unless you know what his desire is for your life. Until we come into the knowledge of who God  is and what he has done for us we will continue to live in darkness (sin).

God in his mercy-delivered us out of the power of darkness (sin) , and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of our sins: Colossians 1:13; 14
Salvation- defined means deliverance from the power and penalty of sin;

The power of sin leads us into all the different problems that exit in this world,  addictions, broken marriages, feelings of hopelessness so forth satan is the one controlling a lot
of the problems in this world today.

The bible says Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil (satan) , as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8

Do we all Sin?:
Yes, sin is the deliberate disobedience to the known will of God.  The  scriptures tell us – there is none righteous, not even one; It says all of   us are like sheep which have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way.. Isaiah 53:6a.  According to the bible everyone that is born into this world is born into sin.

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23 and the wages of sin is death Romans 6:23. God in his mercy has delivered us from sin and through Jesus we have Salvation.

Salvation is:
It is the saving of man from a state of sinfulness which leads to death and restoring him to honor, worth, reputation and right standing with God. Jesus Christ is our salvation , he died for the sins of [the] just as well as [the] unjust, so that He might bring us to God,..
” 1 Peter3:18a

When you accept Christ into your life you become born again. It is the day of new beginnings! 2 Corinthians 5:17 says Therefore if anyman be in Christ, -( meaning any man who believes in Christ- any man  who follows after Christ) [he is] a new creation – old things have passed away;and behold, all things have become new.”

Know that salvation was brought with a price the precious blood of Jesus Christ. He voluntarily died on that cross for you and I, rose the third day and because he lives we live to life and life more abundantly..

God Has a Wonderful Plan for your Life:
But sin separates us from that plan and as long as we are separated from Him he cannot fulfill the plans he has for our lives. Salvation is God’s way of setting in order His plans and purposes for our lives so that we will be able to receive it!

Jeremiah 29:11 says I know the plans I have for you for good and not for evil to give you a hope and a future. Without salvation we would be separated from God forever, we would be like sheep gone astray with out God, with out hope and doomed to spiritual death through out eternity.

Ask yourself this question can you stand eternal separation? Do you want to be apart from God? Do you want to live in hell forever? The bible describes hell as a place of eternal torment. It is not God’s desire to see us perish but have everlasting life and to live with him through out eternity.

How do we receive Salvation?

It is a simple process- and it can only come through Jesus Christ:

John 1:12 says: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right
to become children of God, [even] to those who believe in His name,…”

The first step to receiving salvation is:

#1 You must fist acknowledge that you are a sinner.

1jo 1:9 says – If we would just confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

#2 You must believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose the third day and is now seated on the right hand of God
interceding on your behalf. #3 You must invite Him into your heart by faith.

That is all it takes to receive salvation.

Romans 10:9- 10 – if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shallbelieve in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believe unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Let us pray the Pray of Salvation Together:
Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I know You died on the cross for me. I now turn from my sins and ask You to forgive me. I invite You into my heart
and life. I trust You as Savior and will follow  You as Lord. Thank You for saving me. Amen.”

Now you need to get into a bible teaching church because the decision you have made today is the beginning of a new life for you. In order to walk and grow in your new life you will need to learn the word of God for every circumstance in your life and in doing so you will be blessed!

In Summary

When we are born into the world we are born into sin because we are in darkness because we do not know God or what he desires from us therefore we do whatever being lead by the darkness which is in this world satan.

Salvation begins when we acknowledge that we are sinners and ask God into our hearts by faith.
Salvation is the deliverance from the power and the penlty of sin.
Salvation can only come through Jesus Christ
Jesus died so that we could receive salvation.
