What must I do to be Saved?
People always ask and think of what they can do to be saved, but the truth remains that there is absolutely nothing we can do or offer to be saved because salvation is a gift that comes with no consideration on our path.
The gospel when preached is the only means by which a soul can be won for the Lord. Therefore salvation begins with believing the gospel of which the centerpiece is Christ Jesus.
Preaching of the gospel is the only authorized means to draw the souls of men to Christ. Souls are not worn by motivational speaking, souls are not worn by miracles, signs and wonders, souls are not worn by sharing spiritual experiences and testimonies; all these are means through which the reality of the kingdom is established, the word of God when preached and received is the only seed that can transform a sinner to a saint.
Dear friends, there is nothing compared to the word of God! It is the ancient word that changes me and changes you. That word is Jesus Christ for He is the word that was made flesh and lived among men. Anyone who receive and believe in Him will not perish but anyone who reject and did not believe in Him is condemned already.
To be saved is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ after receiving the unchanging word of life. There is nothing so special that is expected of us to do but to believe in Jesus Christ. That is the original reason for evangelism; evangelism is not going to recruit people for your denomination but to share the eternal word of salvation with men so that they will come to the knowledge of the truth and be transformed.
Are you saved by the word of God? Or are you still busy living by your church standard to attain righteousness? The only standard to attain righteousness is only found in Christ Jesus! Until you receive Him, you will still be looking for what to do to be saved.
