1 How to Understanding the Bible What Must I Do To Be Saved

2 Question of Salvation Most important question Affects our soul's eternity (Matt. 16:26).

3 SALVATION GOD'S DESIRE FOR ALL MEN 1 Tim. 2:4,6 The provision of salvation is solely by God's grace, Eph. 2: The just penalty for sin is death, Gen. 2:17; Ezek. 18:20; Rom. 6:23. Justice demands death for all who have sinned. 2. All men have sinned, Isa. 59:1-2; Rom. 3:23; 5: God so loved us that He gave His only begotten Son to die in our stead, John 3:16; Rom. 5:6-11; Isa. 53:1-7.

4 Salvation is not by grace "ONLY." 1. If it were, then all should be saved, Acts 10:34; Rom. 2:11. A.God wants all to be saved 2 Peter 3:9 1 Tim. 2:4. B.Christ died for all men, 1 Tim. 2:6. 2. But all men will not be saved, Matt. 7: The dividing line between lost and saved is man's part, which is faith, John 8:24; Heb. 11:6 4. Grace teaches obedient faith, Titus 2: SALVATION GOD'S DESIRE FOR ALL MEN 1 Tim. 2:4,6

5 Salvation is not by grace "ONLY." 1. If it were, then all should be saved, Acts 10:34; Rom. 2:11. A.God wants all to be saved 2 Peter 3:9;1 Tim. 2:4. B.Christ died for all men, 1 Tim. 2:6. 2. But all men will not be saved, Matt. 7: The dividing line between lost and saved is man's part, which is faith, John 8:24; Heb. 11:6 4. Grace teaches obedient faith, Titus 2:11-12.

6 SALVATION GOD'S DESIRE FOR ALL MEN 1 Tim. 2:4,6 God is the JUSTIFIER of believers, Rom. 3: We are saved by grace through faith, Eph. 2:8; Rom. 3: Salvation cannot be earned by admirable works of either: A.the law of Moses (Rom. 3:28-4:12); or B.our own righteousness (Rom. 10:3; Titus 3:5). 3. We must have an obedient faith to walk with our Savior, Heb. 5:8-9. A.Christ Himself described this kind of faith as a "work of God," John 6:29.

7 SALVATION GOD'S DESIRE FOR ALL MEN 1 Tim. 2:4,6 Salvation is not by faith "only." 1. Those with "faith only" will be lost, John 12:42-43; Jas. 2: Saving faith is a faith that obeys God, James 2:14, 17, By obedient faith we become servants of righteousness, Rom. 6:17-18, as we walk in the works God ordained, Eph. 2:10.

8 SALVATION GOD'S DESIRE FOR ALL MEN 1 Tim. 2:4,6 Grace and faith illustrated in Israel's deliverance from Egypt. 1. By grace - Israel did not escape by its own strength. 2. By faith - They obeyed a "work of God" by sprinkling the blood, Exo. 12:3-14; Heb. 11:28. A.Were they safe after the lamb was slain? B.Or because they "trusted" in the Lord only? C.They were safe only when by faith they obeyed, Exo. 12:20-30.

10 APPLYING THE ATONING BLOOD OF CHRIST If Saved, Must Be Through His Blood. 1. Rev. 1:5 - Washed from sins in His own blood. 2. Matt. 26:28 - Blood shed for remission of sins.

12 BAPTISM REVEALED By The Authority Of Christ, Mark 16: In the name of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Matt. 28: In obedience to the command, Acts 10:48

13 BAPTISM REVEALED Results Of Baptism 1. For the remission of sins, Acts 2:38 A.Parallel statement with Matt. 26:28 B.Sins are washed away, Acts 22:16 2. Puts one into Christ, Galatians 3:27; Rom. 6:3; 1 Cor. 12:13 3. It is the new birth, John 3:5; Romans 6:4

15 BAPTISM REVEALED Significance of Baptism 1. Puts us into death of Christ, hence into His blood, Rom. 6:3. 2. Buried with Christ, Rom. 6:4. A.Signifies the mode as well as what is accomplished, Col. 2:12; Acts 8:35 3. Raised together with Him, Col 2:12. A.Salvation based on resurrection of Christ B.We also rise to walk in newness of life, Rom. 6:4-11.

16 BAPTISM REVEALED Only "One Baptism" For Men Today – Father, Son, Holy Spirit, Eph. 4:5. 1. It does make a difference how we are baptized, Luke 6: If we were not baptized in the manner by Christ, then we should be baptized again, Acts 19:1-7.
