A Salvation Tract
How to Receive Salvation
“You Must Be Born Again”
God is Holy – Mankind is Sinful
1 Samuel 2:2. “There is none holy as the LORD…”
Romans 3:23. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”
1 John 1:8. “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us”
Realizing Our Need For Salvation
Jeremiah 17:9. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked,
who can know it”
John 16:8. “And when the Holy Spirit is come, he will reprove the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment”
Revelation 20:15. “And whoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”
Salvation Only Through the Lord Jesus Christ
John 14:6. “And Jesus says to him, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life: no man comes to the Father but by me’
Daniel 3:25 (Isaiah 43:2,3). “…Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God”
Salvation Is Not To Be Put-Off Until Later
Isaiah 55:6. “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near”
Proverbs 27:1. “Boast not thyself of tomorrow, for thou know not what a day will bring forth”
Your Essential Participation In Salvation - Repentance and Faith
Repentance: Being remorsefully sorry; turning away from your sins; and confessing to God that you are a sinner.
Ezekiel 18: 30. “…Repent and turn yourselves from all your transgressions, so iniquity will not be your ruin”
Psalm 139:23,24. “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me and know my thoughts. And see if there is any wicked way in me; and lead me in the way everlasting”
2 Corinthians 7:10. “For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation, not to be regretted afterwards: but the sorrow of the world works death”
Faith: Believing, and confessing with your mouth that Jesus Christ died for your sins, and was raised from the dead according to the Scriptures.
Luke 2:29 – 33. “Lord, now let thy servant depart in peace according to thy word. For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou have prepared before the face of all people; a light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. And Joseph and Jesus’ mother marveled at those things which were spoken of Jesus”
John 11:25. “Jesus said to Martha, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live”
Romans 10:9,10. “…if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”
If the Holy Spirit (God) is working in your life, convicting you of sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:7 – 11), this tract may encourage you to take those vital steps toward salvation (being born again).
Do not be discouraged by present circumstances or past failures.
Romans 5:8.“But God commends his love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”
You can be born-again at any moment of the day, in your own home or elsewhere. Christians, and circumstances can be influential in your path to salvation, but the Holy Spirit will have the over-all influence in guiding you, and effecting your salvation. Don’t be pressured into “making a decision for Christ” No church, religious organization, or person can give you salvation.
John1:12,13.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. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
A suggested prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner. I want to live a new life with Jesus Christ as my Saviour and Lord, empowered by the Holy Spirit to overcome sin, and enjoy friendship and fellowship with born-again brothers and sisters in Christ. Amen
