SALVATION

SALVATION
THE BIBLE TEACHES, "SALVATION," "BEING BORN AGAIN" IS NECESSARY FOR A PERSON TO SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD, HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, FORGIVENESS OF SIN AND HAVE THE INDWELLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. HE OR SHE BY FAITH "TRUST" THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD, IS THE CHRIST, "ANOINTED ONE", DIED AND WAS RESURRECTED FROM DEATH FOR THE ATOINMENT OF THEIR SINS. THEY MUST BE WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM SIN AND TO GIVE THEIR LIVES TO JESUS. SALVATION IS TOTALLY BY THE GRACE OF GOD.

EPHESIANS 2:8
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:
EPHESIANS 2:9
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
GOD ELECTS, PREDESTINES, CALLS, JUSTIFIES, SANCTIFIES AND GLORIFIES EVERY TRUE BELIEVER.
ROMANS 8:29
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
ROMANS 8:30
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

OTHER SCRIPTURE TO STUDY:
ST. JOHN 1:12
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:
ST. JOHN 3:3
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
ROMANS 3:23
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
1ST JOHN 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
PRAYER
THE PERSON SHOULD BE ASKED TO CONFESS THEIR SINS AND TO CALL UPON JESUS TO RECIEVE HIM/HER AND TO GIVE THEIR LIVES OVER TO JESUS. ASK IF THEY WANT HELP IN PRAYER, IF THEY DO THIS IS A GOOD SAMPLE PRAYER TO USE:
JESUS, FORGIVE ME OF MY SINS. I TAKE YOU AT YOUR WORD THAT YOU FORGIVE THOSE WHO ASK. BE MY LORD, AS YOU ARE MY SAVIOR, I GIVE MYSELF TO YOU. I AM YOURS. THANK YOU FOR BEING FAITHFUL AND SAVING ME. I HAVE ASKED AND BELIEVE YOU HAVE SAVED ME. AMEN.
JUST LEAD THE PERSON IN THIS OR A VERY SIMILAR PRAYER BEING SURE THEY SPEAK IT OUT, THEY NEED TO VERBALIZE THE WORDS.
