What does it mean to be saved?
1. We are a people that sin...We are all sinners.
" For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
2. There is a penalty of sin...Hell
"...the wages of sin is death...(A second death!)
"...the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolators, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone(hell); which is the second death." Revelation 21:8
"Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." Luke 13:3
3. There is a pardon for sin...Jesus
"For God so loved the world(all sinners) that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus), that whosoever believeth(trusts) in Him (Jesus) should not perish(in hell), but have everlasting life."
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
4. Jesus wants to save you--Now!
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord(Jesus) shall be saved." Romans 10:13
"Behold, I (Jesus) stand at the door and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in..."
