I am a sinner
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I am incapable of saving myself
not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
Only God can save me because only God is sinless.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
My salvation was accomplished on the cross
1 Peter 3:18a
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit
I can only be saved by trusting that what Jesus Christ did on the cross is sufficient to save me.
So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
Once I am saved, I am saved for eternity
And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
