Benefits of Believing in Jesus…

When we believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior, we have security in His gift of salvation and below are seven biblical reasons why…

 

1) When we believe in Jesus, salvation is completely in God’s hands, not ours…

Those who heard it said, “Then who can be saved?” But he said, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”  Luke 18:26-27 (ESV) 

2) When we believe in Jesus, our unchanging God will not take His gift of salvation back…

“I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him.”  Ecclesiastes 3:14 (ESV) 

3) When we believe in Jesus, we have salvation and will not face wrath of judgment…

“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” John 5:24 (ESV) 

4) When we believe in Jesus, we are redeemed into God’s kingdom…

“He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son” Colossians 1:13 (ESV)

5) When we believe in Jesus, we are no longer condemned…

“Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.” John 3:18 (ESV)

6) When we believe in Jesus, we are sealed with the Holy Spirit as the guarantee of salvation…

In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:13-14 (ESV)

7) When we believe in Jesus, the Spirit of God gives us peace about being saved as His adopted child…

“The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God” Romans 8:16 (ESV)
