Friend, what are you counting on to ensure that you spend eternity with the Lord Jesus Christ and all his saints rather than in hell with Satan and all the wicked? Jesus made it clear that many think they are saved when really they are lost (Mat. 7:21-23). Many think they are saved because of religious reasons, like baptism or church membership. Others cling to moral arguments for their salvation, such as claiming they’ve done more good than bad or suggesting that a good God wouldn’t send anyone to hell. But what did Jesus say?
In the third chapter of the gospel of John, Jesus spoke to a very religious man named Nicodemus and said, “Ex-cept a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3) A few verses later he said, “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” Jesus then explained that being born again meant being “born of the Spirit.” (John 3:8)
What does this mean? It means that the gospel of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, must be preached to a sinner and that the sinner must believe it. The apostle Paul defines the gospel in I Corinthians 15:3-4: “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
Friend, do you believe that? Do you believe that you are a sinner? Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” The Bible record is that Jesus is the Son of God who died for your sins, was buried, and then rose the third day. Do you believe that? Many will say, “Yes, I do believe that,” but they fail to realize that their belief is only in their heads, not in their hearts. They believe it as a historical fact, but they have never received Jesus Christ as their Saviour, and they have never really trusted Christ to save them. Even the devils believe mentally, but the devils aren’t saved (James 2:19).
When a sinner truly believes on Christ he receives Christ as his Lord and Saviour just as one would freely receive a gift. God so loved the world that he gave us his Son (John 3:16), but that’s only half of it. A gift can be rejected or received. You must receive the Lord Jesus Christ in order to be saved and become a child of God. John 1:12 says, “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.” The next verse says that when you do this you will be “born of God.” (John 1:13)
I Peter 1:23 says that you can be born again of the word of God and live forever. Friend, you do not have to live in doubt. You can be saved, and you can know it. Romans 10:9-10 says, “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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” To believe in the heart is to trust, to commit, to personally receive and trust Jesus Christ as Saviour.
A common misconception in the world is the notion that God is everyone’s Father, that we are all God’s children. This is false because no one can be a child of God without being born again though Jesus Christ. Again, consider the words of 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.” One can become a son of God by receiving the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ. No amount of doing good, keeping commandments, or church involvement can save a sinner and make him a son of God. “Ye must be born again,” Jesus said, and he said it to a very moral and religious man.
Friend, morality and religion cannot save. Only Jesus can save: “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36) Have YOU been set free from your sins by being washed in the blood of Jesus Christ? I John 1:7 says, “the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Jesus shed his blood for you, but it profits you nothing, if you do not receive him as your own personal Saviour. Why not do so right now? Why not turn from your sins by turning to Jesus Christ and trusting Him alone for your salvation? Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Why not right now?
If you have received Christ as your Saviour, you need to follow the Lord in believer’s baptism and become an involved member of a Bible-believing church. Please contact us soon.
