The little things God requires for salvation



Whenever you consider what Jesus asked the young man to do, the effort in the task was very small, but the resistance to doing so in the young man’s heart was very great. The same effect seems to play out whenever people are told how to be saved.

The Bible is very clear and plain about how we can receive salvation. We need to believe that Christ is the Son of God (John 3:16; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:36-38; Romans 10:9-10). 

We need to repent of our sins (Luke 13:3, 5; Acts 2:38). We need to be baptized for the forgiveness of our sins (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 9:18, 10:48, 16:15, 16:31-33; Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:11-12; 1 Peter 3:21). Some try to take shortcuts to these steps because they do not want to do the little things that God requires for their salvation.

But, you, dear American readers, now have the scriptural knowledge you need to be saved, so what will you do? Please don’t let Satan cause you to hesitate in your obedience today.

God bless you and we love you.

Join us this Lord’s Day Worship is at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and mid-week on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at 728 S.E. 12th Street Moore.
