Receiving salvation is so simple, and this is why some people misunderstand it. The Bible says if you confess with your mouth the Lordship of Jesus, and believe with your heart, that God has raised him from the dead, you are saved. The Scripture didn’t say that you confess all your sins; nor does it say, if you cry and ask God to save you, then you shall be saved.
The Bible tells us about a certain centurion by name Cornelius. He was a devout and generous man; he was a good man, but he was not saved. One day, an angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, “Send men to Joppa and call for Simon whose surname is Peter; who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and thy family shall be saved” (Acts 11:13-14). The angel didn’t say, Cornelius, your good deeds outweigh your bad deeds so salvation is yours”. In spite of all his good works and alms giving, it took words, which Peter had to speak to him, for him to receive salvation.
Receiving salvation is that easy. Once you believe in Jesus with your heart, and you confess his Lordship, your life is backdated to Calvary, and in that split second you experience the power of salvation, making you a child of God.
Share this truth with those you meet today; tell them they don’t have to try to atone for their sins, or impress God with their works. All they need to experience salvation is to believe in their hearts, and declare Jesus as Lord of their lives.
