What Must I do to be Saved?

There are three components to salvation:

  • Grace
  • Faith
  • Works

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.
- Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV)

Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
- James 2:17 (KJV)

It's not enough to just believe that Jesus is the Son of God. We must also follow it up with works of obedience.

Faith =

And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.
- Acts 16:30-33 (KJV)

Obedience =

And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.
- Luke 10:25-28 (KJV)
