Christian Salvation Step by Step – Part Three of Three

18. My salvation can be certain:

a) Romans 8:16-17 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the child­ren of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

b) John 10:27-28 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

c) John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

d) Acts 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

e) Hebrews 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

f) II Timothy 4:18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will pre­serve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

g) Mat 7:16-17 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

h) Mat 7:20-24 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock…

i) Gal 5:22-24 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

19. If I seek, God will help me find great reward and blessing:

a) Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

b) Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

c) Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

d) James 1:5-6 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liber­ally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

e) Matthew 7:7-8 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh fin­deth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

f) Romans 8:31-32 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

20. Jesus Himself will help me:

a) John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name….

b) Hebrews 2:17-18 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being temp­ted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

c) II Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

21. The Holy Spirit will help me:

a) Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh inter­cession for us with groan­ings which cannot be uttered.

22. The Lord will deliver me from temptations:

a) Matthew 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

b) II Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations….

c) I Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

d) Jude 1:24-25 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen.

23. I must work to understand what God is saying to me:

a) Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

b) Psalms 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

c) II Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteous­ness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

24. I have a responsibility to seek others for Christ:

a) Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

b) Mark 8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adul­terous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

c) Matthew 10:32-33 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

d) Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptiz­ing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

25. I should know and heed all the major commands of Christ:

  1. Repent: Mark 1:15 ── And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
  2. Forgive: Luke 17:3 ── Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. Matthew 6:14-15 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
  3. Love: John 15:12 ── This is my commandment, That ye love one anoth­er, as I have loved you.
  4. Believe: John 14:1 ── Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
  5. Baptize: Matthew 28:18-20 ── And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen
  6. Pray: Matthew 6:9 ── After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name…
  7. Serve: Matthew 20:27-28 ── And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be minis­tered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
  8. Witness: Acts 1:8 ── But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusa­lem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

…May the Lord make you a mighty winner of souls! Pray the Lord of the harvest for workers in the harvest!
