If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, watching this might make you want to commit your life to him right now. The next one could land on your head!!!
How do people become “saved” and “born again” Christians? How can you receive eternal life so that you will be sure to go to be with God when you die? A widely distributed Christian tract says the following is what the Bible requires:
- Admit that you are a sinner.
The Bible says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
- Know that God has already provided for your salvation.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
- Know that you cannot save yourself.
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us” (Titus 3:5).
- Repent of your sins, and turn away from them.
“Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).
- Ask Jesus Christ to save you.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13) and “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).
- Proclaim Jesus before others.
“If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness: and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9, 10).

There is no greater issue than salvation.
There is no greater hope than Jesus Christ.

Jesus died for your sins and mine. Turn away from the sinful life that you are living apart from God. Accept Jesus’ sacrifice, and receive forgiveness your sins. Ask Jesus into your life.
Have faith in this plan for salvation. Get to know God and build a personal relationship with him by reading his word, the Bible.
I had a conversation with someone yesterday. This person told me that they had attended a Christian college as a non-believer.
I asked them if they “intellectually” knew or had learned about God’s plan for salvation. They said no.
The saddest part is that this person is still seeking the “truth” as they see it.

Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them.
But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.’
