Do you repent to be saved or do you believe
Believing and repenting are two sides of the same thing
To call upon Jesus for mercy and Him in your heart receive
Coming as a poor undone sinner seeking forgiveness and letting Him take you under his wing
To believe ON, not believe about, means to depend, trust, and rely upon
Realizing youíre a sinner and can do absolutely nothing at all to save yourself
But believing in Christís atonement as recorded in the book of John
That he loved you so much on the cross he took all your sins upon himself
Believing on Jesus is putting the matter of your salvation in His hands alone
Knowing there is nothing in yourself you could do for this salvation to obtain
But only trust and believe on Jesus to be born again and claim Him as your own
If there was any other way to be saved, then did Christ die in vain
John 1:12(KJV) 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 20:31(KJV) But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
Ephesians 2:8-9(KJV) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works lest any man should boast.
