Salvation

 God’s Plan of Salvation

1 John 5:11-12 And the witness is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
This passage tells us that God has given us eternal life and this life is in His Son, Jesus Christ. In other words, the way to possess eternal life is to possess God’s Son. 
 
 OPENING QUESTION:
Has anyone ever shown you from the Bible how you can be sure you are on your way to heaven?  Would you allow me to show you?
 
I. First the Bad News
a. The Problem: Every person is a sinner before a Holy God and unable to save themselves (Romans 3:10, 23).
b. The Penalty: Every person is under the sentence of death and will be forever separated from God because of their sin (Romans 5:12; 6:23).
 
II. Now the Good News
a. The Provision: Through the substitutionary sacrificial death of Christ, God has addressed the sin problem for us (Romans 5:8, 17-21).
b. The Pardon: God offers a free pardon and eternal life to all who place faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ for their salvation (Romans 10:9-10; 4:4-5).
 
CLOSING QUESTION:
Would you like to trust the Lord Jesus Christ right now as your personal Savior?
 
PRAYER:
Lord Jesus, thank You for dying on the cross for my sins and rising from the dead to save me. By transferring my total trust to You alone as my Savior, I now receive the forgiveness for my sins and the free gift of eternal life that You offered me.
