One of the first things that children learn when they start school is their "ABC’s." Learning the alphabet is fundamental for everything else they are going to learn in life.
God never intended for His plan of salvation to be hard to understand or difficult.
THE ABC'S ARE ESSENTIAL FOR ETERNAL LIFE
Every one of us must acknowledge the fact that we are SINNERS.
Romans 3:10 “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one.” Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” We must also acknowledge the fact that man is LOST without God.
Luke 19:10 “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which is lost.” Mark 8:36 “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
Also, we must REPENT of our sin. Luke 13:3,5 “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
Luke 24:47 “And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” Acts 17:30 “and the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent.”
D.L. Moody liked to describe repentance this way: “Man is born with his back towards God. When he truly repents, he turns right around and faced God. Repentance is a change of mind, a change of heart, and it results in a change of action.” Someone cannot be saved unless they know they are lost and they repent of their sin.
We must believe that Jesus Christ came to this world to save us.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” 1 Timothy 1:15 “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” John 3:36 “The that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 11:25-26 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
Many people acknowledge the fact that they are sinners.
Many people believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, live a perfect life, died on an old rugged cross, was buried, and rose after three days and nights. But few CALL upon the Lord Jesus Christ to save them.
Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Acts 2:21 “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
SALAVTION IS AS EASY AS A-B-C
If you would like to be saved right now, pray this simple prayer:
“Lord Jesus Christ, I realized that I am a sinner and lost. I repent of my sin. I believe you died and shed your blood for me on the cross. I believe you rose again from the dead. I ask you to save me right now. In Jesus name, amen.
1 John 5:13 “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye many believe on the name of the Son of God.”
The Bible teaches that once we are saved, we need to be baptized and become part of a Bible believing church.
Acts 2:41 “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.”
