Two Key Verses

A friend of mine, in reading my previous post, mentioned that I should have included some Scripture references that tell us about what it means to accept Christ as your personal Saviour.  There are many others; these are the two that I have committed to memory.

Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes* in him will not perish but have eternal life.   17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.

*Believe means more than an intellectual affirmation.  (i.e.,  the devil believes in God. )  It involves putting your trust in Him and accepting Him as your Lord (Master and Ruler) of your life.
