PowerPoint version of Lesson 6. For Bible class presentations
This is the most important question that a person can ask or should ask—‘What must I do to be saved?’. The answer to this question determines one's eternal destiny. It is a question that has been asked over and over again, both in the Bible and by many today.
In this Lesson we will be seeking to give Biblical answers to this important question, as we study the true condition of the sinner and what has been done and must be done for us to have eternal life.
“As it is written, There is none _____________, no, not _______: There is none that _________________, there is none that ________________ after God. They are __________ gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth ________________, no, not ______________.”
Because of the sinful nature that we inherit from Adam, all men are born sinful and separated from God. Therefore, without Christ, all men are by nature sinful and stand guilty before God.
“For the _____________ of sin is ____________” (see James 1:15).
Death is the ultimate punishment for sin. This death refers to eternal separation from God, which the wicked will experience at the last day (see Revelation 20:14, 15). No one has already expe-rienced this kind of death, except for Jesus, who suffered the true consequence for sin on the cross.
“Can the __________________ change his ___________, or the _______________ his ______________? then may ye also do ____________, that are accustomed to do ___________.”
No. Sin is as much a part of man’s nature as the spots in the leopard's body and the color of the Ethiopian's skin (Psalm 51:5). Therefore, there is nothing that man can do (of himself) to be made righteous (see Job 25:4).
“For God sent ___________ His Son into the ______________to _____________________ the world; but that the world through Him might be __________________” (see also 2 Peter 3:9; Ezekiel 33:11).
Though God hates sin, He loves the sinner and does not wish for the sinner to die in his/her sins. That is why He has done and will do all in His power to save the sinner from sin.
“But God ____________________ his _____________toward us, in that, while we were yet __________________, Christ ________________ for us.”
Because we could do nothing to save ourselves, Jesus, the Son of God, decided to take our guilt upon Himself; died in our place and offer to us salvation as a gift.
“For by ________________ are ye saved through _______________; and that not ___________________: it is the _________________of God: Not of _____________, lest any man should ______________.”
We can only be saved by exercising our faith to believe and accept the gift of salvation that Jesus has made available to us.
STEP 1: Psalm 51:3
“For I __________________ my _____________________: and my _________________is ever before me.”
The first step in the process of salvation is to acknowledge our sinful condition and recognize our need for salvation (Jeremiah 3:13).
STEP 2: Acts 16:30, 31
“. . . And they said, ___________________ on the Lord _____________ ________________, and thou shalt be ______________, and thy house.”
The second step is to believe that Jesus died to take away our sins and that He is willing to forgive us of all our sins and to accept us as His children.
