Bible Verses About Salvation: God’s Plan For Us
Of all the Bible verse posts that are gathered here on WCWTK, this is the one that I urge you to read most carefully. It is the one that talks about the most important opportunity you will ever have in this lifetime. It is the one that lists Bible verses about salvation.
These are Bible verses that define salvation, teach us of it’s assuredly and help us to take Jesus to others. As a Christian and ambassador for Christ, these Bible verses about salvation are the best tools you can have in your heart.
Study them, write them done so that when the opportunity presents itself, you will have an answer for the hope that lies within you (1 Peter 3:15)
What must I do to be saved?
God Made a Perfect Garden and Put Man in it
Genesis 2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed.
God Gave Man Only One Rule and the Consequence for Disobedience
Genesis 3:3 but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’”
Man and His Wife Disobeyed
Genesis 3:6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.
God is the Judge and What He Says Goes
Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
God is Gracious and Patient; God Gives Second Chances
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
God’s Grace is a Gift and We Don’t Earn it because Christ Did All the Work Already at the Cross
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Titus 3:4-7 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
When You Believe This, Salvation from Death in Hell is Yours
John 3:18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
John 3:36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.
Acts 4:11-12 “…This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
God’s Plan is for You to Enjoy Eternity with Him
Colossians 1:5 … because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
1 John 3:2 Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be him, because we shall see him as he is.
Revelation 22:5 And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.

The Five Phases of Salvation
Let's ask Paul the question.
Paul said he was saved before the world began (II Tim 1:9), when Jesus came into the world (I Tim 1:15), when the Spirit regenerated him (Titus 3:5), when he took heed to himself and the doctrine (I Tim 4:16), and would be saved sometime in the future (Rom 13:11).
Can you believe it? Paul clearly mentions five different stages or phases of salvation. And this is the key to understanding our wonderful salvation in Jesus Christ.
Since God saves sinners in stages, or phases, we must not limit salvation to just one idea or one event at one time. Paul saw his own salvation occurring in five phases.
It used to be called the Ordo Salutis of salvation, which means the order of salvation; but it is not studied or preached much any more. We live in the perilous times of the last days, when men no longer want sound doctrine preached to them (II Tim 3:1 – 4:4). They prefer fables over truth, so the true doctrine of salvation has been almost lost from the earth.
Everyone talks about “getting saved,” but no one can explain it from the Bible. There are “invitations” and “decisions” and “methods” for salvation, but none of these words or ideas are from the Bible.
Paul clearly taught five phases of salvation. Let us learn the five phases briefly, then study two charts with the Bible proof and explanation. If you love understanding, you will love the charts.The ETERNAL PHASE is God's plan and choice from eternity to allow sin into the world and to save His elect from it.
Since He is eternal and sovereign, God planned in eternity all that He does in time. There are no surprises to God.
He planned to allow sin, so that He could display His glorious grace in saving His elect from it and displaying His power and wrath on the rest.
The LEGAL PHASE is God's work to satisfy His holy nature and perfect justice for the salvation of His elect.
Because every sin must be punished, He sent a Substitute to die for their sins. His perfect holiness and justice cannot overlook sins and acquit wicked men.
He must punish their sins in Another, even Jesus Christ. And this He did at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ 2000 years ago.
The VITAL PHASE is God's application of these benefits to us personally and individually.
Though He planned to save us from eternity and legally did so with Christ's death on the cross, we still have a depraved and wicked nature at enmity with Him.So He regenerates us into a new life by His Spirit and gives us a new heart that loves Him and righteousness. This is being born again, and it is done entirely by the power of God sometime during our lives.
The PRACTICAL PHASE is our response to His salvation. He sends His Spirit into our hearts, and we cry “Abba, Father.” With new hearts from regeneration, we seek the truth and love it when we hear it.
We hear the gospel, and we believe it. We want to be baptized to show Him our love. We want to know more of what we can do to please Him, and we gratefully cherish all His promises, which give us comfort and peace now.
The FINAL PHASE is that great day in the future when we shall be declared the sons of God to the whole universe and enter heaven for eternity.
Our bodies will be raised from graves and glorified into new spiritual bodies, and we will be thoroughly purged from all sin to be perfectly holy in His presence forever.
This great conclusion to the plan of salvation is yet in the future.
With this brief explanation, look at Chart #1, which divides the work of God into five phases. You will see that God operates in five phases, and even sin and condemnation occur in these five different stages. Please read the descriptions and see the many Bible proofs and explanations for these phases of salvation.
If you will study this chart and search the Scripture references to prove each phase, you will find an explanation and description of your salvation that will bless your heart. God has intended to save you from the very beginning, and He is faithfully working all the operations of grace to bring you to your predestinated end.
God has also chosen several different words to describe our salvation, justification, sanctification, and adoption among others. By looking at Chart #2, you will see that the various components of salvation are also easily understood by these five phases.For example, sanctification means to be made holy for the use of God. We are sanctified, or made holy, in five stages. First, God chose us to be holy before the world began.
Second, Jesus died to make us holy legally, or positionally. Third, the Spirit gives us a new holy nature that loves holiness. Fourth, we obey the gospel to live active holy lives.
And fifth, we shall be made wholly holy, even with holy bodies, in the last day.
By reading chart #2 for the line called sanctification, you will know more about sanctification than 99% of Christians today. What should you do? Thank the Lord with your whole heart and live a holy life for Him.
Now, when someone asks you, “When were you saved?” you should ask him which phase he is asking about! You were saved before creation in God's elective plan; you were saved at the cross in His legal provision; you were saved at an unknown time in your life by the Spirit's regeneration; you were saved to knowledge and assurance of the truth by the gospel; and you will yet be saved at our Lord's coming. Glory!
If you love this glorious plan of salvation, then it is your duty to find a church where this wonderful doctrine is taught, cherished, and obeyed; for the Father is seeking worshippers who will worship Him in spirit and in truth.
Seven Proofs of Unconditional Salvation
This is the most important sermon about salvation. Either God gives eternal life as a free and unconditional gift, or man must perform conditions of faith or works to be saved.
If man must do anything as a condition, then God's grace is ruined, man becomes his own saviour, religious financing determines eternal destiny, and Satan robs Jesus Christ of His glory! Get ready to have God exalted and man debased for His glory!

Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Rev 3:20 KJV ).
God so Loved the World
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him would not perish, but have ever lasting life,” (John 3:16).
The above Scripture tells us those who accept Jesus into their life/heart will receive a Glorious Everlasting life with Him in Heaven, but those who refuse will perish, meaning they will receive an eternal damnation with Satan in Hell.
Jesus lived a sinless life while on this earth. He alone was worthy and Holy enough to die on the cross to pay for your sins.The decision to be born again is one that only you can make; no one else can do it for you.
But when you do He will be with you to comfort, guide, help, and counsel all your earthly days, and when your life on earth is over, you will spend eternity in Heaven with Him. What a wonderful plan of salvation!
Becoming born again will be a decision you will never regret, a decision that will take you through eternity with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
All it takes is to believe in your heart, and to profess (say) out loud that you believe in God, and that Jesus is God's Son who came here to die for your sins.
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
“For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved” (Rom 10:9-10).
When you believe the Scripture above, and can make the above statements of faith, you can ask Jesus to come into your heart, and He will. And you can do that right now.
Sometimes people are overly concerned with using the correct words in their prayer to become born again, but they shouldn't because Jesus already knows what is in their heart.
He knows they want to be born again and filled with His Holy Spirit, and that is all that counts. So, the specific words you use are not what is most important.
However, if it will help you feel more secure, to speak the exact words, you can follow the prayer below.
If you have previously done this and for any reason feel uncertain about your salvation you can ask Jesus into your heart again.
“The Sinner's Prayer” is prayed by those who have the desire to be born again.
The Sinner's Prayer
For Those who Desire to be Born-Again
“Lord Jesus, I believe in God and that you are the Son of God as recorded in Your Word. I realize that I am a sinner, and I believe you died for my sins. I now turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and ask for a new life with you. I ask you to come into my heart and life. I receive you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me, Amen.”
Your New Christian Life
If you have prayed the above prayer, God now see's you as His Child, pure, clean, and white as snow, “free from blame and guilt.”
Find a local Church and request to be baptized, and begin to associate with other Christians. Ask the questions you are sure to have about your new life in Christ.
Get your own Bible. There are several good versions, the “King James Version” is my favorite, and the “New King James Version” is easy to understand.You are now a babe in Christ. When Satan tries to interfere with your new Christian life, remember that God's Holy Spirit is always with you and that His power is much greater than Satan's.
Read your Bible every day, and learn to listen to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to lead you into all truth. You will grow in your knowledge and understanding of God's Word and will soon become a mature Christian.
Be sure to tell others about your new life in Christ.
The Angels in Heaven Rejoiced!
“wise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (Luke 15:10
Please stay in touch and ask any questions.
Jesus loves you even more than you can imagine!
