Can God Really Save My Soul?

John 3:16-17

In this passage detailing the conversation between the Lord Jesus and Nicodemus, the Lord says, very plainly, that He came into the world to provide salvation for all men. The matter of salvation is of vital importance to every person throughout the entire world. What we do about our salvation will determine where we spend our eternity. Jesus tells us that He didn't come into the world to condemn the world, but that the world, through Him, might be "saved." It is that word saved that I want to consider for a moment. We often use biblical terms as if everyone understands what they mean. We forget that those who are without Christ do not always know what we are talking about. So, to clear up any confusion, I want us to see exactly what that word means. The word "saved" literally means, "to save, to keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction." With this meaning, why do we use it in regard to the soul? Because, man in his natural state, is a sinner, Rom. 3:23.

When we come into this world, we arrive here already under a death sentence, Rom. 6:23. Unless a person is "saved" then they will die in their sins and they will spend eternity in Hell, forever separated from the presence and power of Almighty God. No right thinking person wants that to happen to them! But the question that many want to know is this, "Can God Really Save My Soul?" Is it really true? That is, if a person does what the Bible says and receive His plan of salvation, can God really save us and keep us out of Hell? That is the question I have been asked on a number of occasions, and I would like to answer it today. "Yes He can!" Let me give you three reasons why.

I. God's Promise To Save

II. God's Power To Save

III. God's Provision To Save

Maybe there is someone here this morning and you have been plagued with doubts about salvation. Maybe there are those who know that they are not saved. But, today, the Holy Spirit has spoken to your heart and you are ready to come to the Lord. God is calling and you know what you need to do. Will you come today?
