15 Apr Only believe: 5 Bible references on salvation
Have you ever thought that there should be work needed for God to accept you?
Thankfully, there isn’t.
God’s tells you in His Word that you are saved the moment you believe in what Christ has done. That’s it!
Faith in Christ is the only requirement for salvation.
These five bible references remind you that you only need to believe in Christ to receive the gift of salvation.
For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.
2 Corinthians 5:21
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God.
You don’t have to work for salvation. You don’t have to obey laws perfectly to earn it.
The only thing you have to do is believe the Gospel: that Jesus died for your sins, was raised for you to be put right with God, and because you believe in Him you have eternal life.
