life is God's greatest gift to man. The Plan of Salvation is His way of making it available to them. In order to received
that Gift man
must realize that he is a sinner, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
Because he is a sinner, he is condemned to death. "For the wages
[payment] of sin is death" (Romans 6:23).
This includes eternal separation from God in Hell. "... it is appointed unto men
once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27).
But God loved man so much that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear man’s sin
and die in his place. "... He hath made Him [Jesus, Who knew no sin] to be sin for us ... that
we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Jesus had to shed His blood and die. "For the life of the flesh
is in the blood" (Leviticus 17:11).
"... without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]" (Hebrews 9:22).
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died
for us" (Romans 5:8).
Although we cannot understand how, God said man’s sins were laid upon Jesus and when He
died in our place He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.
"God ... now commandeth all men everywhere to repent" (Acts 17:30). Repentance is a change of mind that
agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the Cross. In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippian jailer
asked Paul and Silas: "... 'Sirs, what must I do to be saved?' And they said, 'Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved ....' "
Simply believe that Jesus died on the cross and bore your sin, died in your place, was buried,
and then on the 3rd day God resurrected Him. The fact the he was raised from the dead assures us that we can claim
everlasting life when we receive Jesus as Savior.
"But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to
them that believe on His name" (John 1:12).
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13).
Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved.
