There is only one way to reach God and that is through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Savior of the world. There is no other way to heaven except through Him.
How Jesus is our Savior
Although Jesus name as Savior is widely used, it is easy to lose sight of what the term means. Obviously, it means that Jesus saves people from something. The question remains, however, “Jesus saves people from what?”
The name Savior is used in different ways throughout the Bible so that does not make the question easy to answer. Nehemiah 9:27, for example, says that God has sent many saviors to His people. In that context, however, the title refers more to a physical salvation. It is meant as a protection from physical enemies, and not necessarily spiritual salvation.
There is one amazing spiritual blessing, however, that is available to us right now. We have already been saved from the wrath of God.
Therefore, when we say that Jesus is Savior, we are emphasizing that He saves us from our sins. To take that even deeper, Jesus has already taken the punishment for our sins. Therefore, we do not have to be punished for them. The price has already been paid.
How To Accept Jesus
Do you want to experience Jesus’ presence, power and guidance in your life? God loves you and wants to have a personal relationship with you for eternity.
Only one thing separates you from having this close relationship with God—sin. You and I sin whenever we fail to live by God’s Holy Word. The first step to having a relationship with God is to turn away from our sin and ask forgiveness. The second step is to tell God that you accept the gift of His Son as Savior. Promise God that you want to live your life according to His Word.
