New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 12, 2003, New Braunfels, Texas Page 8A HERALDZEITUNG Sunday January 12 2003 tIDo To Be Saved God Wants You To Be Saved It is comforting to know that the Almighty God of heaven cares for each of us Yes He cares about you God is not indifferent about your salvation He wants you to be saved Listen to the words of scripture Who would have all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth 1 Timothy The Lord is not slack concerning his promise as some count slackness but is longsuffering to youward not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance 2 Peter But sin had separated us from God Isaiah Sin is a transgression a violation of Gods will 1 John It is against the very nature of sinless God Deut Hab James That being the case God gave His Son as a perfect sacrifice to pay the ransom price and free us from sin Matthew 1 Timothy For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on him should not perish but have eternal life John For while we were yet weak in duf season Christ died for the ungodly 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die for peradventure for the good man some one would even dare to die 8 But God commendeth his own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us 9 Much more then being now justified by his blood shall we be saved from the wrath of God through him Romans Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things like silver or gold from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers 19 but with the precious blood of Christ as of a lamb without blemish and without spot 1 Peter Because you have sinned you are due the wages of sin For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord Romans But through the grace of God a way of salvation has been opened for mankind Indeed Gods favor His grace is extended to all For the grace of God hath appeared bringing salvation to all men instructing us to the intent that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts we should live soberly and righteously and godly in this present world Titus Salvation cannot be earned It is not of human merit For by grace have ye been saved through faith and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God Ephesians So you see a way of salvation given to you by your loving Heavenly Father was made possible through the death of Jesus on the cross His blood cleanses us from sin Then all people will be saved right So some might ask The answer is given by Jesus Himself Enter ye in at the strait gate for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction and many there be which go in thereat 14 Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life and few there be that find it Matthew See for yourself then that most will be eternally lost Why Because they chose a broad road instead of the Lords way Jesus shows us that there is but one way of salvationthrough Him i i And ye will to me that ye may have life John I said therefore unto you that ye shall die in your sins for if ye believe not that I am he ye shall die in your sins John Jesus saith unto him I am the way the truth and the life no man cometh unto the Father but by me John So God wants you to be saved He has given His Son that you might be saved It is through Jesus that all saved are saved Now what must you do to receive salvation that is available only in Christ It is important to consider the totality of the Scriptures concerning salvation Do not wrest scriptures from their context Here then is the way of salvation the way to be in Remember forgiveness of sins is found in Christ Ephesians Faith in Christ You must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God Remember John I said therefore unto you that ye shall die in your sins for if ye believe not that I am he ye shall die in your Further the following passages point out that faith belief in Jesus Christ is essential in order to be saved He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life but the wrath of God abideth on him John i He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved but he that believeth not shall be damned Mark For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life John And brought them out and said Sirs what must I do to be saved 31 And they said Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved and thy house Acts It should be noted that there is more than one type of belief faith mentioned in the New Testament There is the faith that saves as noted in previous passages and there is a dead faith Read Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him lest they should be put out of the synagogue 43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God John Thou believest that there is one God thou doest well the devils also believe and tremble 20 But wilt thou know O yain man that faith without works is dead 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works and by works was faith made
