What must I do to be saved?

In order to be saved, you need to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. That’s the great message of Scripture.

Jesus is the Savior. He has come to do all that needs doing for sinners to be reconciled with God. We have to trust Him, rest in Him, and have confidence in Him—that is faith. Then, we need to turn from the life of sinfulness, by the power of His Spirit, to serve Him. It is faith in Jesus that reconciles us to God. It’s the Spirit of Jesus that will lead us to repentance and to a life of service.

I hope all who are listening have repented and believed. I hope also that they will live in the joy of the Lord because living for Jesus is the best life.
