How to Know Jesus as Savior

Delighted as we are that you are looking through this website, our greater desire is in seeing you enjoy new life with Jesus Christ. Perhaps you have never confessed Jesus Christ as your Savior. We invite you to consider this now as you read.

Our Sin Separates Us From God

The process is simple. All of us are sinners, and our sin separates us from God. The Bible tells us in Romans 3:23 that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Recognizing this dilemma is the beginning of our journey. By recognizing our sin, we realize that we face eternal damnation. Because God is just, this is exactly what our sins merit. This is precisely what a just God should allow if He is truly just.

Our Sin Earns Death

By our sin we have offended God. Our sin is an offense that demands a penalty. That is why the Bible tells us in Romans 6:23 that “the wages of sin is death.” We have earned this death, both physical and spiritual.

Hope Is Found In Jesus

Thankfully, there is hope for sinners. The rest of Romans 6:23 tells us that while the wages of sin is death, “the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Damnation does not have to be the end! Indeed, God loves us so much that He sent Jesus Christ to die for us. The Bible says, “God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

Jesus Paid the Penalty For Your Sin

By His death on a cross, Jesus Christ paid in full the just penalty of our sin. That is why He could say, “It is finished” (John 19:30). In the midst of our sinfulness, Jesus died and paid the penalty for our sins, the penalty we deserved to pay, to satisfy the justice of God.

Trusting in Jesus For Your Salvation

None of us deserves to have the debt of our sin forgiven. However, because of the great act of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we can have salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 tells us that it is “by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” You cannot prove yourself somehow worthy of God’s forgiveness. Only Jesus Christ was sufficient for that. What is required instead, is that you believe in the Lord Jesus for your salvation. To believe in Jesus means you depend on Him alone to forgive you and to give you eternal life.

Will You Believe?

Perhaps you have never confessed Jesus Christ as your Savior. There is no greater moment than now to do this very thing. Is there anything keeping you from believing in Jesus Christ as your savior? If not, then why not tell Jesus Christ right now of your belief in Him? Once you believe, you will be fully reconciled with God.

What Happens When You Believe in Jesus?

John 5:24 explains, “He who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.” When you place your trust in Jesus Christ, you have new life. The scriptures describe this as passing from death to life, from darkness to light. Your hope in Jesus is secure.
