BELIEVE on Jesus Christ!
John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Everything you need to know about going to Heaven
I love the Gospel of John. What an amazing book of God's Word! Did you know that the word "BELIEVE" appears 88 times in the Gospel of John, but the word "repent" is not mentioned even once. This proves that faith alone saves! Repentance is automatic. The man who believes has repented (i.e., he has changed his mind from unbelief to belief), and the man who repents has believed. I encourage you dear reader to quietly listen to John over and over, and you too will see the SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRIST.
“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people." —Pilgrim's Progress author, John Bunyan (1628-1688)
We've Made Getting Saved So Complicated
But we've so muddied the Gospel, that when men want to make a decision to trust Christ, we've made it so complicated that they can't make a simple decision to "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved." We'll say, "If you don't do this" or "You don't do that" or "You haven't done that," you're not saved"; but the truth of the matter is that when asked in the Bible, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?," one clear simple answer was given to him—"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved." —Pastor Curtis Hutson, "Things That Are Different Are Not The Same" (preached at Southwide Baptist Fellowship on October 3, 1994)
Acts 16:30-31, "And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house."
“Salvation is one thing and service is another, and never the two goes together. No man is saved because he serves, and no man has to serve because he is saved. Gotta keep them separate! And if you don't do it, the Scriptures will be confusing to you. You'll not rightly divide what God has to say.” —Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold, “Why Lordship Salvation Is Wrong”
