New Testament Salvation
By Art McDonald

The question, "What must I do to be Saved?" is seldom asked.
However, when asked, it certainly demands the right answer.
How would you answer such a question? Where would you start?

A SIMPLE QUESTION

A simple question, yet the greatest question in all the world. Then, too, it is a simple question that every intelligent person should ask.
Moreover it is a simple question with a simple answer. Here, with little research, is a question that every child of God can answer.

WHERE TO START

This question, along with the answer, is found in Acts 16:30-32.

"And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house." (Acts 16:30-32)

Here in simple language is the answer to one of the greatest questions ever asked.
The answer to what one must do to be saved is to know what it means to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible term for believe is more than giving your mental assent to the Bible. It means doing something about it. Jesus must be received.

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" (John 1:12)

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." (Rev. 3:20)

I hear someone say: "I thought all you had to do is just believe; just have faith." True faith is the key to the door of Salvation. When you receive Jesus as Lord you must believe.
You may ask how much faith.

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteouseness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.: (Rom. 10:9-10)

Romans 10:9 and 10 tells us how much faith is necessary to be saved. You must believe enough to confess Him as Saviour. This, my friend, is new testament Salvation. Why not receive the Lord Jesus and then confess Him as Saviour.
