God’s Plan of Salvation

This is God’s Plan to save us from the punishment for our offenses against His righteous standards.

God Made and Owns This Earth
As the Creator, God chooses what pleases Him.
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:1

God Judges Using His Commandments
If we break one of God’s commands, we stand as guilty in God’s court of justice.
3 You shall have no other gods before Me. 4 You shall not make for yourself a carved image– 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, 7 You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, 8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
12 Honor your father and your mother,
13 You shall not murder.
14 You shall not commit adultery.
15 You shall not steal.
16 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17 You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.
Exodus 20

God Punishes Disobedience
God has determined the consequence for those who are guilty.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23

We Can’t Save Ourselves
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9

Even Though God Knows the Worst About Us, God Still Planned a Way We Could Be Forgiven.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

Jesus Christ Was Executed In Our Place
3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 6 After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once,
I Corinthians 15:3-4, 6

God Loves You
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
John 3:16-21

Jesus is the Only Way to God
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
John 14:6

Heaven is for Those Who Love Jesus
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.
Revelation 22:14

God Doesn’t Force People to Love Him
3 How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him,
Hebrews 2:3

Hell is for Those Who Reject Jesus
But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
Revelation 21:8

Believe in Jesus Christ for Salvation
That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Romans 10:9-10
