1 Thessalonians 5:21 (NKJV)
Test all things; hold fast what is good.
The following came from Christian Standard Magazine many years ago. I thought it fitting to discuss salvation on the blog.
THE WAY of SALVATION
KNOWLEDGE and DUTY Ecclesiastes 12:13 1 Peter 3:15 Ezekiel 3:18-19
SIN Romans 3:23
DEATH Romans 6:23
POWER of GOD John 1:12
HEAR Romans 10:14-17
BELIEVE John 3:16-18
REPENT Acts 2:38
CONFESS Matthew 10:32-33 Romans 10:9-10
BAPTISM Acts 8:38 Romans 6:1-10 1 Peter 3:20-21
FAITHFUL Revelation 2:10 Romans 2:27
GREAT COMMISSION Matthew 28:19-20
THE FIELDS ARE WHITE UNTO HARVEST
So you will see I believe a saved person is one who has heard the Word of God, the Gospel (Good News), Believed it’s message, Repented of his past actions – a sinful life, Confessed to God his sins and been Baptized to receive forgiveness and the gift of the Holy Spirit. The believer must then grow in Christ, drawing near to God through his life.
