Why do I need to be saved?

We are all infected with sin. "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," (Romans 3:23) We are born with sin, (Psalm 51:5) and we all personally choose to sin. (Ecclesiastes 7:20) (1 John 1:8) Sin is what makes us unsaved. Sin is what makes us separated from God. Sin is what has us on the path of eternal destruction.  

Saved from what?

Because of our sin, we all deserve death. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23) While the physical consequence of sin is physical death, that is not the only kind of death that results from sin. All sin is ultimatelcommitted against an eternal and infinite God. (Psalm 51:4) Because of that, the just penalty for our sin is also eternal and infinite. What we need to be saved from is eternal destruction. (Matthew 25:46) (Revelation 20:15)

How did God provide Salvation?

Because the just penalty for sin is infinite and eternal, only God could pay the penalty, because only He is infinite and eternal. But God, in His divine nature, could not die. So God became a human being in the person of Jesus Christ. God took on human flesh, lived among us, and taught us. When the people rejected Him and His message, and sought to kill Him, He willingly sacrificed Himself for us, allowing Himself to be crucified. (John 10:15) Because Jesus Christ was human, He could die; and because Jesus Christ was God, His death had an eternal and infinite value. Jesus' death on the cross was the perfect and complete payment for our sin. (1 John 2:2) He took the consequences we deserved. Jesus' resurrection from the dead demonstrated that His death was indeed the perfectly sufficient sacrifice for sin.

How can I be saved? 

"Put your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. God has already done all the work. All you must do is receive, in faith, the salvation God offers.

So what happens?

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17

"The spirit of the Lord will come upon you in power...and you'll be changed into a different person." 1 Samuel 10:6

"But to all believed Him and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn...a birth that comes from God." 
John 1:12-13

"For by grace you have been saved, through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." Ephesians 2:8-9

Fully trust in Jesus alone as the payment for your sins. Believe in Him, and you will not perish. (John 3:16) God is offering you salvation as a gift. Jesus is the way of salvation. (John 14:6
