"Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God...........Hebrews 12: 2
Christians have the priceless privilege of looking to Jesus as our leader (the Greek word translated “author” here is the same one translated “captain” in (Hebrews 2:10). He is also our finisher, the One who perfects us.
The ABC’s of salvation express the same conviction. We must Accept Jesus Christ and the truths concerning His life, death and resurrection. The apostle Paul said “the gospel which I preached to you . . . that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared . . . to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of who remain until now ” (1 Cor. 15:3-6).
Those are basic facts we must accept regarding Jesus Christ. They are well attested to in history. Jesus Christ is believable.
We must Believe on Jesus Christ personally. I believe that Jesus died for my sins. He died as my substitute in my place paying my penalty for sin (Rom. 5:6, 8; 2 Cor. 5:21). I believe He is the only way for me to go to heaven and enjoy eternal life with Him (Acts 4:12). It is a personal relationship with Him.
We must Commit ourselves to Jesus Christ. This is the moment when He becomes "my Lord and my God" (Jn. 20:28). I take You, Jesus Christ, as my Lord and Savior. We are saved by the grace of God that is received by simple faith in Jesus Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9; Rom. 10:9-10, 13).
Have you made that commitment to Him? Have you asked Him to be your Savior? Have you believed on Him? Have you made a commitment of yourself to Him? “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved . . .” (Acts 16:31). Selah!
