Have you found yourself in the same position as Paul in the New Testament? The good he wanted to do he didn`t do and the evil he did not want to do he practiced. Rom.7:15-25.No matter how much we try to live without committing sin we fail.When we break the law we deserve the punishment which includes the curse and death the penalty. Deut.26:14 Rom.5:12-18 Gal.3:10.We need rescued from ourselves.Saved from sin and its consequences.WHO IS ABLE? GOD – He is the Saviour of all men and is able to save totally.Rom.7:23 Heb.7:25.
HOW DOES GOD SAVE US?
The Good News is through Jesus Christ.God loved us so much that He sent His Son into the world to save us from our sins-He is the Saviour. Matt.1:21 Jn3:16,17 1Tim.1:15 1Jn4:14.Jesus did not sin and kept all Gods law doing what His Father asked. 1Pet.2:22 Jn14:31;15:10 2Cor.5:21 Heb.4:15 1Jn3:5.God showed His love for us by placing the punishment we deserved for our sin on His Son Jesus,who did not deserve punishment because He did not sin. Jesus took our place-the Great Exchange. Rom.5:8 2Cor.5:21 Heb2:9 ; 9:28.Jesus Christ loved us and gave Himself for us bearing our sorrows and sickness becoming a curse and tasting death in our place. JN15:13 Matt.8;17 Heb.2:9 Gal.3;13 1Pet.2:24 ;3;18 1Jn3:16.
FAITH TOWARDS GOD.
To receive this salvation-to be saved from sin and its consequences you need to have faith in God.Believe He is who He says He is and rewards those who call on Him. Heb.11:6 If you turn to God and call on the Lord Jesus you will be saved.Rom.10:13.Many choose to believe a lie instead of the truth of God.Often with their wisdom view God and Jesus Christ as foolishness. Rom.10:13 1Cor.1:21 But those who believe the message God is pleased to save.Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and trust in what He has done for you, Receive the gift of His love. JN3:16 Rom.10;9 Acts16:31 2Tim.3:15.
When you believe and accept what Jesus Christ has done for you-
HE FORGIVES US OUR SINS and not just ignoring them He removes them.He has chosen to nolonger remember our sins and does not hold any record of wrongs.Psa.103:12 ISA.43:25 Jer.31:34 Acts13;38 Eph.1:7 Col2:13 Heb.8:12 1Jn1:9.
HE FREES US.Nolonger condemned,released from the death sentence,free from the curse and penalty of breaking Gods law. JN3:18 Rom.8:1 Gal.3:10-13.
HE JUSTIFIES US-acquitted from guilt,pronounced righteous,just as if we never sinned and when He looks at us He doesn`t see our sin but sees Jesus Christ His righteousness- a gift to us. Rom.3:21-26 ; 4:5-8,22-25 ; 5:6-21 ; 10:1-13 1JN1:9-2:1.
