What is the way to Salvation?
Christ is the only way!
How does Christ become yours?
He becomes yours when you are brought
to acknowledge four Gospel Truths
(1) God is Holy
“For thou art not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness; No evil dwells with Thee. The boastful shall not stand before thine eyes’ Thou dost hate all who do iniquity” (Psalm 5:4, 5) Because God is holy (perfectly sinless), no sin can swell in His presence.
(2) Sin is Horrible
“Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.” (1 John 3:4) Sin is missing the mark of God’s perfection. It is practiced by both commission and omission. Men will perish eternally in hell because they persist in their practice of sin.
(3) Man is Helpless
“There is none righteous, not even one. There is none who understands , there is none who seeks for God” (Romans 3:10, 11) Man is a fallen creature, whose will it is to live in the flesh, so that he cannot please God. All men in Adam are sinners before God and are therefore hopeless and helpless within themselves.
(4) Christ is your only Hope
“Separate from Christ…having no hope.” (Ephesians 2:12) “Christ in you..the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:27) The good News is that God has taken the initiative in salvation. he sends forth the Spirit to helpless sinners, who cannot save themselves, and enables them to repent of sin and trust in Christ. So you must cast yourself upon the only Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 2:5). We urge you to flee from your sins and future wrath of God by “looking” in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ alone, the author and finisher of salvation who gave himself for sinners just like you upon the shameful cross.
