    Post REPORT: God's plan of salvation

    The most important question that anyone will ever be required to answer in life is the same question that will determine the true quality to which that life can be lived for all eternity. The question is, "Have you accepted Godís gift of salvation?" The answer to this one question will determine eternity for you. The question is not, "Are you a good person?" or, "Do you go to church?" Or even, "Do you have a knowledge that Jesus Christ lived and died?" The question is, "Have you accepted Godís gift of salvation?" If you have, then you are free from the debt of sin and will enjoy eternity in a loving relationship with the God of all creation. If you decide not to accept Godís gift, then you will spend eternity burdened with the debt of your sin and all of its horrible consequences. God is a gentleman and will not force anyone to live with Him. He has given us the free choice to accept and love Him, or to reject and be apart from Him.

    Who needs the gift
    The Bible tells us that everyone is in need of Godís great mercy: Romans 3:23 "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

    A price to be paid
    The debt, or price of sin, is separation from God who is holy. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is deathÖ"

    Payment in full
    But God is loving and wants to have fellowship with His children. Like any good father, He does not want us to die. However, He is a just God and could not simply pretend that we had never sinned and allow us to go free without the debt being paid. So He made a way for us to come back into union with Him, and still maintain justice so that the debt is paid in full. God Himself paid our price, not with the wink of an eye, but with His own blood. Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

    Salvation
    However, a gift, no matter how great and wonderful, is useless if it is not accepted. In order to benefit from Godís sacrifice for us, you must accept the gift. The Bible states: Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

    Putting it all together
    The choice is as simple as it is vital. Humble yourself before God and admit that you are a sinner. Tell God that you realize that the price for your debt is death, but that you accept His gift and believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for your (personal) sins. Tell Him that you believe that He raised Jesus from the dead, showing that you also will be raised. Then thank Him. What a wonderful Father. He made the entire universe, the billions of stars and planets and galaxies. He constructed the incredible complexity of the human brain. He holds all of creation together by the power of His spoken Word. That He would be willing to come to us, to be humbled and beaten and spit upon and even to suffer the death of the cross, for you and me, that is a God to love. A God to thank and to praise forever and ever. How wonderful is His name.
    - Open rebuke is better Than love carefully concealed. - Proverbs 27:5

    Rumor has it "nowhere on TOL will you find how to accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior", so I thought I would give this Front Page Report a bump.

    I believe Jesus is who says he is, and that God raised him from the dead, for my salvation.

    I accept, without any qualifiers. Thank you Jesus.

    My Choice Too

    Amen brother
    I rejoice in the fact that God the Father chose me in Christ before the foundation of the world to be his adopted son through Jesus!
    I am so glad that my choice of Jesus is based on the fact that the Father first chose me in Christ!! I rejoice that all this was worked out and still is being worked out in the power and life of the Spirit!!!
    This is my testimony when anyone speaks of choosing salvation.
    God bless you.

    Time for a friendly BUMP on this thread.

    Praise God and His goodness!
    The L-rd bless you and keep you;
    The L-rd make his face shine upon you,
    And be gracious to you;
    The L-rd lift up his countenance upon you,
    And give you peace.

    Romans 10:9 was written to the saved not the unsaved, making this scripture irrelevant to an unbeliever. Show me any example in scripture where an unbeliever made such a confession and was saved in doing so. Your teaching is false.

    Then why did Paul tell them they will be saved?

    Didn't he just do that? Salvation during the dispensation of grace consists of hearing the gospel, and believing.
