“He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” – Mark 16:16
Hi friends! thank you for reading and subscribing to my blog. I appreciate you!
Are you saved? I mean, if you died today, would you go to heaven? If not, it’s an age old question: What must I do to be saved? I’ll tell you what I did in order to be saved. I followed the Scriptures.
1. I Believed.
Jesus said that unless you believe that He is the Son of God, you will die in your sins (John 8:24). He also said the one who believes and is baptized shall be saved (Mark 16:16).
2. I Repented.
Jesus said that except you repent, you will perish (Luke 13:3). This means that you have a change in heart and thus change your actions. You stop living a sinful life and live for Jesus.
3. I Confessed Jesus as Lord.
Jesus said, “whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 10:32-33). The Bible also tells us “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).
4. I Was Baptized.
Jesus Himself said that whoever believes and is baptized will be saved (Mark 16:16). Romans 6:3 explains that we are baptized into Christ, and salvation is found in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 2:10).
God does not require much of us. All we have to do is obey Him. If you find yourself asking the question, “what must I do to be saved?”, the answer is simple. Believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. Repent of your sins and stop doing them. Confess that Jesus is Lord. And be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will be saved and can live a faithful life in service to Christ.
If you are saved, what did you do in order to be saved? Would you add anything to the list above or take anything from it? I’m interested to know, so share your experience with us in the comments.
May the Lord bless you and keep you is my prayer.
