It all starts with Jesus!
“For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”These are the words of John 3:16 from the New Living Translation of the Bible. You may have seen John 3:16 on homemade signs at sporting events or heard someone quote it. You may have been asked, “Do you want to be saved?“…”Do you want to be a Christian“…or even “If you were to die today, where would you spend eternity?“Hopefully hearing the words of John 3:16 sparked questions in you like, “What does it mean?“…”Who is God’s son?…”What is eternal life?“…and hopefully the questions (or their answers) brought you to the one question that will change your life…What must I do to be saved?
Thankfully the answer to that question is incredibly simple. But before we answer the question, we’ll take a step back…it’s possible you have never heard any of these things or have never pondered the question!
Let’s first take a look at why you need to be saved.
