An Exceptional Lesson

[144 words]

It is widely believed and preached that to be saved all that is necessary is to “believe only” or “just receive Jesus as your personal Savior.” These expressions leave us with the erroneous impression that there is nothing for sinners to do to be saved. The Bible teaches differently; there is something you must do to be saved (Acts 9:6; 22:16; Philippians 2:12).

Listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ said about salvation:

1. ”Except ye believe that I am he, ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:24 ASV).

2. “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).

3. “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God” (John 3:5).

These are commands to be obeyed in order to be a Christian. Have you obeyed?
