Temple ShotThe Most Important Question

©1996 by T.L. Hubeart Jr.

The most important question that anyone will have to deal with in life has to do with the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. That question is "What must I do to be saved?" In Jesus, the Son of God, you can know that you have eternal life. And you can feel a greater sense of fulfillment here and now, in knowing that your purpose in life is not simply to exist for a short time, and then to die, but that it is to serve God, to have fellowship with Him, and to have a wonderful home in heaven with Him after your time on earth is over.

Let me share with you the wonderful gospel plan of salvation. The Bible says that God sent His Son to save us:

What do we need to be saved from? The fact is that we were all born into sin. And that sin separates us from God unless we repent and accept the salvation of God through His Son Jesus.

The Bible says:

We were born into sin. We cannot help sinning. And we delude ourselves if we deny this.

The penalty for sin is death and eternal separation from God.

However, there is a way out. Anyone who accepts Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as his or her Savior will receive eternal life.

Jesus Christ, even though He was the Son of God, came to earth in human form, died for our sins (1 Cor. 15:3, 1 John 2:2), and arose from the dead (Luke 24:4-7, Acts 2:24). Having ascended into heaven, Jesus will come again (Acts 1:11) to receive those who believe on Him, and they will be with Him forever (1 Thess. 4:16-17).

How easy it is to accept Him! And how wonderful it is to be free of the shackles of sin, and to walk in Him.

Will you accept Him today? Confess your sin, receive the Lord Jesus as your Savior, and become His. All you need to do is ask Him.

Pray with a sincere heart to Jesus, and He will save you and give you eternal life. If you don't know how to pray, repeat the following and mean it:

If you prayed that prayer . . . what next?

  1. Begin to read God's Word, the Bible, and pray daily (Eph. 6:17-18). You now have a relationship with God, and just as you maintain your relationships with your family, you should also want to keep in contact with God through prayer and the Bible.
  2. Begin attending a sound, Bible-believing church (Acts 1:14, Heb. 10:24-25). This will allow you to fellowship with others who belong to Jesus and help to strengthen you as you walk in Him.
  3. Be baptized, following Christ's example and God's Word (Matt. 28:19, Acts 8:36-37).
  4. Begin seeking God's will for your life, and how He would want you to serve Him (Heb. 13:20-21).

Welcome to the Family of God!
