Have you thought about what will happen when you die? Does the idea of dying scare you? Or, do you not worry about it and just live your life day-by-day? Either way, The Bible speaks clearly of life after death. Some will be separated from God for all eternity, and others will experience eternity with God dwelling with them. Those are the only two choices.
Jesus asks only that you believe in Him to be saved from eternal separation from God.
- No other conditions or requirements.
- There isn't even a special prayer to say, just believe.
To believe means to have faith in Jesus Christ.
When Jesus says, “Believe in Me and you will have eternal life” He is asking His hearers to have complete faith that He is the Way; the only Way to the Father.
There is no other way to be saved from eternal separation from God except through Jesus (John 14:6)
Will you take Jesus at His word, have faith in Him for your eternal destiny and believe?
What must you believe to be saved? The Bible says, simply believe in the Savior, Jesus Christ the Son of God:
Because of His death on the cross, and subsequent resurrection (1 Corinthians 1:17-18; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; 1 Corinthians 5:19-21), God, through Jesus Christ, has reconciled the world unto himself. Sins are no longer imputed to mankind because of Jesus Christ. You must by faith believe. He is the only One who can offer you eternal life. If you believe in Him, you are assured salvation and life eternal.
Stated another way:
In order to be saved eternally—good works and/or living a life of obedience to God will not do it. You cannot be good enough. Salvation comes only by faith in the Savior, Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth, and the Life, who shed his blood for you on the cross. Who will you have faith in for your eternal life? Why not take Jesus at His word and believe Him today?
Now that you believe it is time to start being a follower of Jesus and His disciple. We have several Bible studies throughout the week to help you.
