WHY DO I NEED TO BE SAVED?



WHY DO I NEED TO BE SAVED?



Why do people need a savior? Why do they need to be saved? What does being saved mean? I thought all good people will go to heaven so why do good people need to be saved?

Now, some Christians will tell you that all people have inherited the original sin of Adam and Eve and that is why all people both good and bad must be saved in order to receive eternal life and not perish in the lake of fire on the final day of judgment.

But that is not what the Bible itself teaches. Please read the study called “THE FALSE DOCTRINE OF ORIGINAL SIN!”. The Bible teaches us that in the fullness of time when God provided for us a savior the God conclude all of mankind to be fallen short of his glory. Now it is also true that we have all sinned at some point in time in our life no matter how small that sin may have been. The truth of the matter we have excused those small sins from even being sins because everyone commits those small sins like telling little white lies or cheating. But the fact remains that God himself has chosen to CONCLUDE ALL humans to be under sin and he did so for a REASON.

Please read Galatians 3:22,23.


But the scripture has CONCLUDED all under sin, THAT (or so that or in order that) the promise BY faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that BELIEVE.

23.  But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterward be revealed.”

Now the reason that God himself simply CONCLUDED everyone to be under sin was so HE himself could show his love and mercy to provide us a way to escape the penalty of sin which is eternal death being cast into the lake of fire on the day of judgment.

This was God’s plan all along before God ever created mankind. It is God’s good pleasure to provide for us a way to be saved for he knew that his enemy Satan would tempt his new creation of mankind to sin.

Please read Ephesians 1:1-9.


“Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

2.  Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

3.  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places IN Christ:

4.  According, as he (Almighty God our creator) has chosen us IN him (speaking of being saved IN his Son Jesus the Christ, the anointed of God) before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

5.  Having predestined us unto the adoption of children BY Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, (God’s plan to save us was his WILL before he ever created us.)

6. To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he has made us ACCEPTED IN the beloved. (meaning that Almighty God our creator has made us accepted in his eyes by our FAITH IN his beloved Son Jesus the Christ.)

7.  IN whom (or IN Jesus the Son of Almighty God) we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; (so then, through our faith IN the shed blood of Jesus Christ we have FORGIVENESS of all our past sins to now be ACCEPTED as being pure and holy before Almighty God our creator.)

8.  Wherein he has abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

9.  Having made known unto us the mystery of his WILL, according to his good pleasure which he has purposed in himself:”



So this whole plan of salvation was our creator's idea and it was his good please to do this for us. There is only ONE true Almighty God who created us all and he only has ONE plan of salvation which is that we  MUST be saved by FAITH in his SON Jesus Christ.

The may sound like a NARROW way to be saved but that is what God himself decided as being the ONLY WAY for all men to be saved.

Please read Acts 4:9-12.


Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that BY the NAME of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him does this man stand here before you whole.

11.  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

12.  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is NONE other name under heaven given among men, whereby we MUST be saved.”


Hebrews 2:3.


“How shall we escape (eternal destruction in the lake of fire on the final day of judgment), if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;”



God is offering everyone a WAY to be saved from eternal destruction in the lake of fire so if you do not already believe in Jesus the Son of the living God as your Lord and savior then please read the next Bible study called “WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?”


Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you continue to seek the truth of the whole word of Almighty God.

Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Mark.
