How can we be saved?

  • Answer: Only by faith in Jesus Christ and in his substitutionary atoning death on the cross.
  • Scripture: 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)
  • Prayer: Almighty God, we are justly under sentence of death and we should eternally perish. But we look to you for mercy and acceptance. You are a compassionate Savior, as well as a just God. Jesus, your only Son, died and we are saved because of his atoning sacrifice. We turn to him, therefore, as our only refuge. Thank you for showing us infinite mercy when we deserved infinite misery. Amen.
