Seeking God First
Rev. Louis Cash
Six Steps to Salvation
Salvation is deliverance from sin and its consequences, it is brought about by faith in Christ.
STEP ONE — ACKNOWLEDGE (To Admit, to be true or to exist) Admits you are a sinner/have sin in your life. Romans: 3:23; Luke 18:33
STEP TWO — REPENT (To feel sorry for having done wrong and seek forgiveness. To feel sorry, regret something done in the past.) A turning away from sin, disobedience, or rebellion and a turning back to God. A change of mind. True repentance is of Godly sorrow for sin — an act of turning around and going in the opposite direction. Luke 13; Acts 3:19
STEP THREE — CONFESS (To admit one’s guilt — take responsibility for your own life by acknowledging sin) Refreshing your life. I John 1:9; Romans 10:10
STEP FOUR — FORSAKE (To give up, leave alone, abandon) Putting aside those things in your life that will hinder your walk with Christ. Isaiah 55:7
STEP FIVE — BELIEVE (To place one’s trust in God’s truth, on who takes God at his word and trusts in him) Believers are those who have trusted God with all their will, heart and mind. John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10, I John 3:23
STEP SIX — RECEIVE (To take something offered to you, acceptance) Receiving all of the benefits offered by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. John 1:12; Acts 17:11
Accepting Christ in your life is an extremely important task. We often feel we will give our lives to the Lord when we have “gotten ourselves together.” Do not worry about that. If you will confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus was crucified and raised from the dead for your sins, you will be saved. Do not be concerned about what your friends or family say, your salvation must be very important to you. There is also the misconception that once you are saved you must live a perfect life. We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). You must remember, Jesus Christ was the only perfect man who walked this earth. When we error in judgment, we must ask for forgiveness and learn from our mistakes.
It is important that you unite with a church body that teaches the word of God. This is how spiritual growth takes place.
