WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?
This is the most important question you will ever ask. It is asked in the Bible multiple times. The answer that is given in God’s word is all that we need. The word of God is sufficient to save us. The apostle Paul said it this way: "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes . . ." (Romans 1:16).
The apostle Peter wrote, "Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever" (I Peter 1:22,23).
People, who became Christians in the New Testament believed in Jesus, repented of their sins, confessed Jesus as Lord, and were baptized into Jesus. If you have done these things to become a Christian, then you have become a Christian the same way people were saved in the time of Christ. Read the following Scriptures, let them instruct your mind, and obey them from your heart.
Believed: John 8:24; 3:15,16; 20:30,31; Mark 16:15,16; Acts 16:31; 18:8; Galatians 3:26, and Romans 10:9,10.
Repent of sins: Luke 13:3,5; 24:46,47; Acts 2:38; 3:19; 17:30,31; 26:20; and II Peter 3:9.
Confess Jesus as Lord: Matthew 10:32,33; 16:16; John 11:25-27; Acts 8:37; Romans 10:9,10; and I Timothy 6:12.
Baptized into Christ: Matthew 3:13-17; 28:18-20; Mark 16:15,16; John 3:3-5; Acts 2:38; 8:12,13; 8:35-40; 9:18; 10:47,48; 16:15; 16:30-33; 18:8; 19:1-5; 22:16; Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:26,27; Ephesians 4:4; Colossians 2:12,13; and I Peter 3:21.
Our belief in God and His Son comes through hearing the word of Christ (Romans 10:17). Learning the gospel of Christ leads us to turn from or repent of our sins (Acts 3:19). A believer who has repented will confess verbally of their faith and belief in Jesus Christ as Lord (Romans 10:9,10). A believer who has repented of their sins and confessed Jesus as Lord will happily be baptized into Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 22:16).
Examine closely what you did to become a Christian. Did you do what the Bible says? If you are not saved, then be obedient to God’s word and believe, repent of your sins, confess Jesus as Lord, and be baptized to wash away your sins!
