The Truth About Salvation

"Then he escorted them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved — you and your household.” Then they spoke the message of the Lord to him along with everyone in his house." ~ Acts 16:30-32

Do you ever wonder if faith in Jesus is really the only way to be saved? Satan is a crafty liar who will twist God’s Word to cause confusion. In order to steer people away from following Christ, he tries to create the impression that eventually everyone will make it to heaven. But that is not what Scripture teaches.

The truth is, we can choose to reject the salvation that Jesus Christ freely offers. John’s gospel tells us:

“God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” ~ John 3:17-18

The Word of God clearly states that whoever believes in Jesus will be saved:

"For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God." ~ John 3:16-18

The Bible also stresses that we make this choice during our earthly life — there will be no further opportunities once we die.

So if you would like to be sure of your salvation, you can do so by inviting Jesus to be your personal Savior. God, who wants you to spend eternity with Him, offers compelling reasons to make this all-important decision:

“He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life” ~ John 3:36

There are no more chances to place faith in the Savior after death. The free gift of salvation is available only in this life — and only through Jesus:

"Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." ~ John 14:6

Receive Him now, and you will never have to wonder what awaits you in eternity.
