Salvation

The Four Spiritual Laws

Just as there are physical laws that govern the physical universe,

there are spiritual laws that govern your relationship with God.

Law 1

God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life. God's Love
"God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life"  (John 3:16, NIV).

God's Plan

[Christ speaking] "I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly" [that it might be full and meaningful]   (John 10:10).

Why is it that most people are not experiencing that abundant life? Because…

Law 2

Man is sinful and separated from God. Therefore, he cannot know and experience God's love and plan for his life.

"All have sinned and fall short of the glory  of God"   (Romans 3:23).

Man was created to have fellowship with God; but, because of his own stubborn self-will, he chose to go his own independent way and fellowship with God was broken. This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference,
is an evidence of what the Bible calls sin.

Man Is Separated

"The wages of sin is death" [spiritual  separation from God]  (Romans 6:23).

Law 3

Jesus Christ is God's only provision for man's sin. Through Him you can know and experience God's love and plan for your life.    

He Died In Our Place

"God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us  (Romans 5:8)

He Rose from the Dead

"Christ died for our sins... He was buried... He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures... He appeared to Peter, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred..."  (1 Corinthians 15:3-6).

He Is the Only Way to God

"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but through Me'"  (John 14:6).

Law 4

We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God's love and plan for our lives.

We Receive Christ Through Faith

"By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as result of works that no one should boast"  (Ephesians 2:8,9).

 

You Can Receive Christ Right Now By Faith With A Simple Prayer

(The following is a suggested prayer)

Lord Jesus, I need You.  I ask that you come into my heart and save me. I acknowledge that you died on the cross for my sins and rose again on the third day. Thank You for washing away my sins with the blood of Jesus and giving me eternal life. I lay down my will and ask that you guide me by your Holy Spirit to do Your will for my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.  I receive You as my Lord and Savior.  Take control of the throne of my life.  I ask this in Jesus name. Amen!

Does this prayer express the desire of your heart? If it does, I invite you to pray this prayer right now, and Christ will come into your life, as He promised.

We encourage you to join a group of believers at a Church that portrays the love of Jesus and is equipped in the word of God. As you grow in the Lord, you will need other believers to encourage and uplift you in your journey. Know that God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life!
