“…if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9-10, NIV).
You are saved from the direction sin was taking you, away from God to Hell — to the new direction caused by faith in Christ’s work, to be with God in Heaven.
Believing in Christ means that you put your total and complete trust in him for your salvation. But you need to choose to receive Christ and follow him.
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.” (John 1:12)
A criminal can be offered a pardon by the governor, but if it is rejected, that pardon has no effect. In the same way, Jesus offers us a complete pardon for all of our sins and the free gift of eternal life, but it is not put into effect unless it is accepted.
Are you ready to receive this free gift now?
