Plan of Salvation

Godly Repentance

A Change of mind from who is on control of your live (you), to allowing God to control your life.

Romans 2:4 "Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and long-suffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?"

2 Corinthians 7:10 "For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death."

Acts 3:19 "Repent ye therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord."

SIN: Not Obeying God
Recognition of Sin

Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God"

Psalms 51:5 "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me."

Ecclesiastes 7:20 "For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not."

Galatians 3:22 "But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe."

Wages of sin

Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Matthew 25:41 "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:"

Revelation 20:14 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."

Christ's Payment for Mankind's Sin

1 Corinthians 15:3,4 "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again on the third day according to the scriptures."

Death - Christ Shed His Blood

Ephesians 1:7 "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace."

1 John 1:7 "...and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."

Burial - Christ in Hell

Acts 2:31 "He seeing this before spake of the ressurection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell..."

Psalms 16:10 "For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption."

Ressurection - Christ Arising from the Dead

1 Corinthians 15:17 "And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins."

Romans 1:4 "And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the ressurection from the dead."

Reception of Christ's Payment for Your Sin

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Romans 10: 9-13 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
