This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, reminding you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.
Salvation is simple, but it’s not cheap. It cost Jesus Christ everything so that salvation could be offered to us freely. God has provided salvation on a basis which permits anyone who can make an intelligent decision to have it. If salvation could be received on the basis of education, multitudes would be excluded. If eternal life could be had on the basis of wealth, a great number would still be left out. If being saved were dependent upon one’s moral perfection, everyone would fall short. God has made His salvation available on the basis of a personal faith which even a child can exercise. This way, everyone is reduced to the same level in the eyes of God, and all must come to Him on the same terms. Paul said, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
“What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” (Romans 3:9-10).
“But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.” (Galatians 3:22)
How Simple Is It To Be Saved?
1. It is as simple as entering a door. “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be
saved,” (John 10:9a).
2. It is as simple as calling for help. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
3. It is as simple as coming when called. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy
laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
4. It is as simple as receiving a gift. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is
eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
5. It is as simple as drinking water. “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.” (John 4:14)
6. It is as simple as eating bread. “I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if
any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my
flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” (John 6:51)
7. It is as simple as believing God. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” (John 6:47)
Many people stumble at the simplicity of salvation. They often feel that they must do something to earn or deserve such a wonderful offer. Yes, something had to be done so that salvation could be offered to us freely, but Jesus did it all. All that God asks of us is that we believe that Jesus died for our sins and receive Him into our heart and life by faith. The genuineness and the reality of your faith will be demonstrated in a changed life.
Why not make that all-important decision which will transform your life and bring you into a right
relationship with God? It is simple, and it works. Try it and see.

If you will accept Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Saviour, please pray this prayer with all of your heart: “Dear Heavenly Father, I know I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus died for my sins and I am willing to return from my sins. I now ask Jesus to come into my heart and life as my personal Saviour. I am willing, by God’s grace, to follow and obey Christ as the Lord of my heart and life. Amen”
