a . Every person in this world has sinned and needs a Savior.
(1). Romans 3:10 “There is none righteous, no not one.”
(2). Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
b. The result of sin is eternal separation from God.
(1). Romans 6:23a “For the wages (what is earned or deserved) is death.”
(2). Ezekiel 18:4 “Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.”
c . Jesus Christ is the only way any person can come to God, be forgiven, and be saved.
(1). John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
(2). Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
d. Salvation is a gift from God that must be received through repentance of sin, and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior.
(1). Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
(2). John 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe in His name.”
