Why does a person need to be saved?

The Bible says that only a few people will end up in Heaven and many will receive a wide road to destruction. Even though Jesus paid for everyone’s sins, each person must come to the realization that they are a sinner and need their savior. They have to get to a point where they trust in Jesus and truly believe that He died on the cross just to save them. Romans 5:6-8 says “ For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Christ died for all of humanity so that we

In Romans 3:24 it says “But they are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” “His Grace” means Jesus dying on the cross, which also means His act of selflessness that He viewed as an unmerited favor for all of humanity. Salvation comes to those who make a relationship with God through Jesus. The entire work of salvation is a work of God’s grace or his unmerited favor which is a free gift given to those who are willing to receive it.

This also means we are willing to do listen to God and obey what he commands us to do. In Romans 6:4 it says “Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in the newness of life.” This means that we are baptized into Christ. Now, to be baptized is to be fully submerged into water. Therefore, to be baptized in Christ, is to be fully submerged in the church, His teachings, and in His word. Then, after being submerged in all of this, we are to conform it to our lives and strive to become more like Christ. Romans 8:14 states “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.” Our heavenly Father is much like an earthly father. He takes care of our needs and He gives us the desires of our heart if it is His will. He allows us to have troubles so that we learn to have faith and trust in Him. God takes care of us but that does not mean everything will be smooth sailing. When we become believers in Christ we still live in a world of evil. As believers,
