The Simple Gospel
 
“What must I do to be saved?” (Acts 17:30 KJV)
 
This question, asked by many, has oftentimes been answered with a deluge of complicated rights, rituals, and rules. The truth is, we have a simple answer, provided by the most powerful act of love, the most self-denying act of sacrifice, that has ever been known to mankind.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
J O H N  4 : 13 – 14  K J V

Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 

Jesus offers a well of life that will cause us to never thirst again. The world however will never satisfy our souls; it will only lead us farther into destruction. The woman who Jesus spoke to at the well knew this only too well. Her past tainted, her reputation in tatters, she was considered to be filthy and impure. Day after day she trekked to this well in the heat of the day, covering her head in shame and avoiding anyone she might pass. For Jesus to speak to her was a miracle in itself, and His words evoked her response:
“Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.” (John 4:15 KJV).
 
Did she deserve this life giving water? No. Do any of us deserve this eternal life? No. Romans 3:23 says, “for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (KJV). To sin is to miss the mark, and we have all missed the mark. Yet Jesus specifically sought this Samaritan woman out, to giver her an opportunity to partake of this eternal life, just as He is searching you out. Do you feel a tug at your heart? Maybe a softening of your spirit? Please don’t hesitate to respond. Coming to Christ is not difficult, whether it’s your first time, or maybe your second of third time after a long battle of running away. God still loves you more than anyone else in the world ever could.
 
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  John 3:16 KJV

Admit

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23 KJV) Since Adam and Eve were tempted by the devil in the Garden of Eden (the Fall of Man), we as humans have been born into this world with a sinful nature. To sin means to miss the mark, a mark set impossibly high by a perfect, entirely righteous God. That means we deserve death automatically.
 
But God loved us so much that He wasn’t willing for any of us to perish (1 Peter 3:8). So He sent His Son Jesus to die on a cross, to be the “propitiation for our sins” (1 John 2:2 KJV), so that we now have the gift of eternal life through this single act of God’s love, the sacrifice of His Son. And it is truly a gift, free and available to everyone, but we have the choice as to whether or not we accept it. The first step is to admit to God that you are a sinner. Repent (ask for forgiveness) and turn from your sins.

Believe

Jesus is the only way by which we can go to God the Father. “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12 KJV) Believing is your first act of faith as a new Christian. For some, believing is a hangup. How can I believe in God when I don’t see Him? Well, do you believe in air? What about gravity? You cannot see gravity, yet your feet are on the floor. You cannot see air, yet you are breathing it. You are affected by both.
 
Believing starts in the heart. Believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He died for your sins on the cross of Calvary, and that He is now alive and seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven. Place your faith in Jesus as God’s Son and accept Jesus’ gift of forgiveness from sin. Don’t be afraid to put your faith and trust in Jesus. He has big shoulders and can be trusted.

Confess

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9 KJV) The Bible is clear, if you confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, ask for forgiveness of your sins, and commit your life to Him, then He will forgive you and make you clean. Redeemed. Not guilty. Ransomed.
 
When God forgives you, He adopts you into a brand new family. You become His child. No longer are you destined for eternal, fiery Hell, but you have been given new, everlasting life. You are destined to live forever with our Heavenly Father in Heaven!
“. . . but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 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;” (Romans 8:15-17 KJV) 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
“Confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and commit your life to Him.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A Simple Prayer
 
“Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and in need of You. Please forgive me for my sins and everything I’ve ever done that displeased You. I believe that You are the Son of God. I believe that You died on the cross of Calvary for me and anyone else who calls upon Your name. I believe that You rose again on the third day and have ascended into Heaven to intercede for me and prepare a place for me. Please come into my life and live as my Savior and Lord. Today I turn from my sin. Please change me and mold me into Your image. From this day on, I will seek to follow You and to live my life to honor You and bring glory to Your name. Thank you Jesus for loving and forgiving me. 
In Your name I pray,
Amen.”
