This is what I love about Jesus, He offers the simple plan of salvation.
If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
How compassionate a gesture to care enough for humanity to develop a plan for the afterlife and present a gracious proposal - a free gift of everlasting life (Romans 6:23). The good news is we do not have to wait until this life is over to step into a purposeful life (John 10:10).
Now, how kind is this. The Lord Jesus has considered all the details for us who believe to spend eternity with Him in the place prepared for believers (John 14:3). Our sinful nature does not determine salvation (Romans 3:23). Heaven knows that we cannot save ourselves (Ephesians 2:9). The end happens the same for all, death. However, the scriptures noted assures the believer "the gift of God is eternal life." (Romans 6:23)
This is where faith comes into play. From the beginning, there was the Word; the Word became flesh (John 1:1, 14). Jesus became the sacrifice for our sins (1 Peter 3:18). The rejoice for us is, three days later, Jesus was raised from the dead (Romans 4:25). Now my hope is that you will receive Jesus so that His love will become yours (John 1:12).
