How can someone be saved according to Jesus?
Jesus proclaimed in Luke 9:23-26, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels.”
Christ warned in John 8:24, “Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am, you will die in your sins.” Christ professed in John 8:58, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
Jesus revealed in Matthew 10:32-33, “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.”
Jesus professed in Luke 5:32, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance” (Matt 9:13, 18:11, Luke 19:9-10, John 3:17, 12:47). Christ warned, “I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3, 5).
Christ declared in Mark 16:16, “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” Jesus confirmed in John 3:5, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God” (cf. John 1:12, 3:3).
