The most important step for anyone to make regarding God's plan is to
take the initial step to secure eternal life. This step is the easiest you will
The apostle Paul was asked the same question regarding salvation in Acts
16:30-31. His answer was simple and straight forward, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved...", (cp. Joh.3:16). He also states,
"Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved", (Rom.10:13). The Lord's name is His reputation. His reputation is that
the historical person Jesus was God in the flesh (Joh.1:1 cp. vs.14), He
died on the cross for the sins of all men (Heb.10:12; 1Pet.3:18; 1Joh.2:2)
and was resurrected and ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of
God (Acts 1:9-11,22; 2:29-34; Heb.1:3). If you believe that Jesus indeed is who the Bible says He is and paid the penalty for your sins, then
you are saved (Eph.1:13). This is the free grace gift of salvation provided
for anyone who will accept it (Rom.6:23). In addition, let no one tell you
that anything else is necessary to be born again as a child of God, as Scripture makes it clear that salvation is faith apart from any additional
works (Joh.1:12; Rom.3:28; Gal.2:16; Titus 3:5).
