The blood Christ shed on the cross forgives our sins. All of us have sinned. None of us is capable of saving ourselves. We could never earn our salvation. We could never satisfy the pure justice of God. He had to do it for us which he did by sending his Son to die for us. Only by God’s grace and through faith in Christ and his work on the cross can we be saved. There is no other means of being allowed into Heaven.

So how can you seal this deal with God? There are several accounts in the Bible of people seeing the light and making the choice to believe and receive Jesus i.e. Paul, Cornelius, Lydia, the Jailor, etc. All of their accounts can be found in the book of Acts,  Paul says in the book of Romans:

whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

That verse is in the book of Romans chapter 10 verse 13. Being saved is what the Bible refers to as being converted or born again or having your name written in the book of life, etc. I like what Paul said in Romans 10:9 & 10 about being saved. Here it is:

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

That answers the how question. Believe in Jesus. Call upon the name of the Lord. Ask God to save you. Do it just now. And if you do, please send me an email and let me know about it. Here’s my email address:

FINDING VERSES: To find verses in the Bible, it is important to know how to read their reference or their address as it were. Verses are listed first by the name of the book, for instance John. Then the chapter is listed, for example chapter, 6. Then the number of the verse is listed, number 47 for instance. So it would look like this: John 6:47  book, chapter:verse.

Here is a list of the books of the New Testament in the order in which they appear:

Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, I Corinthians, II Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, I Thessalonians, II Thessalonians, I Timothy, II Timothy. Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, I Peter, II Peter, I John, II John, III John. Jude, Revelation.
