A Biblical Summary of the Gospel of Salvation

MAN’S SIN PROBLEM SEPARATES US FROM GOD, ETERNALLY.

*But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. (Isaiah 59:2)

*All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away (Isaiah 64:6)

*For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a person who has broken all of God’s laws. (James 2:10)

*ALL HAVE SINNED and fall short of God’s glorious standard (Romans 3:23)

*For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23)

*But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” (Revelations 21:8)

BUT GOD’S SALVATION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST RESTORES WHAT WAS LOST IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN – A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM & ETERNAL LIFE

*For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever BELIEVES in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

*I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)

*He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed – (1 Peter 2:24)

*God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21)

*In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace (Ephesians 1:7)

*For it is BY GRACE you have been saved, THROUGH FAITH — and this not from yourselves, it is the GIFT of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO GOD BUT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST

*Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

*Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.””How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!” Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born from above. (John 3:3-7

*Salvation is found in no one else (BUT JESUS CHRIST), for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)

*And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life (1 John 5:11-13)
