The Lord Bless Thee

I was thinking that this could be used as a thank you card. And I used the new Creative Cards Cricut cartridge to make this one. :P Also, I got my new laptop! So, posts should be more regular now. :D

I've been thinking about salvation recently; as in how do people get saved? I know we've all heard "pray to accept Jesus into your heart" or "ask forgiveness for your sins" but these are incomplete, if not completely wrong, ways to explain salvation.

In order for someone to be truly saved; they must understand the gospel. Which can be found in 1 Corinthians 15 where it says:
"Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also you have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain." (vv. 1-2 KJV)
So, it looks like you can't be saved if you don't know the gospel. The next verses tell what the gospel is:
"For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures." (vv. 3-4 KJV)
 This is the first step to getting saved: understanding the gospel.

Next post we'll talk about the second step to getting saved... so, until next time. ;)
