short Biblestudy - 6 Steps to Salvation
1. The Bible is the Word of God:
a. 2.Pet.1:20-21; 2.Tim, 3:16 - God called
people to write down His Word,
b. John 20:30-31 - "...that ye might
c. Rev.22:18-19 - Do not add or take
anything away -
2. Every person can find God if they seek
for - Him from their whole hearts:
a. Acts 17:26-31 (27) - He be not far
from every one of us.
b. Deut. 4:29-31 - Thou shalt find him,
if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
c. Is.55:6-7 - Seek ye the LORD while
he may be found.
3. God is looking for people who believe
in Him (i.e. His Word), and He is a rewarder of those who seek Him
and want to come to Him.
a. 2.Chron.16:9 - For the eyes of the
LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong..."
b. John 4:23 - "the true worshippers
shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh
such to worship him. "
c. Heb 11:6 - "But without faith
(i.e. complete trust in HIS Word) it is impossible to please God"
4. Jesus Christ is the one who we must believe
a. Col.1:15-22 - Jesus Christ is the
image of the invisible God,
b. 1.Tim.2:5 - The man Christ Jesus is
the only mediator between God and men,
c. John 7:38 - Jesus said, He that believeth
on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers
of living water,
5. What is the Great Commission and what
did the disciples, who Jesus had taught, preach?
If God saved these people at that time through His gospel, then the
same gospel will also save us! Therefore, let us find out what this
gospel is about:
a. The Great Commission; Matth. 28:19-20; Mark
16:15-19; Luke 24:46-47; l.Cor.15:1-5
b. There is only one gospel that saves: Gal.1:8
c. Believe In Jesus: Acts 1:8 "...ye
shall be witnesses unto me"; 4:12
"there is none other name (than Jesus) -
d. Repentance and changing of your mind, bringing forth works; Acts
e. Forgiveness of sin through baptism in Jesus' name; Acts
2:38; 8:16; 10:48
f. Baptism of the Holy Spirit; John 1:33; Acts
2:2-4 and 38-39; 8,17; 10,44-46; 19,6
Acts 5:32 "...the Holy Ghost, whom
God hath given to them that obey him.
6. Challenge: Do you believe in the Scriptures
and the gospel? The Bible tells us to seek salvation before it is
too late! We can see that we firstly have the hope of being
saved once we have been obedient to His Word:
a. Mark 16:16 - "He that believeth
and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be
b. Matth.24:14 "And this gospel
of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto
all nations; and then shall the end come"
c. 2.Thess.1:6-10 - "... taking
vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel
of our Lord Jesus Christ."
