Principle Number 3.
Jesus has already provided YOUR salvation
Your salvation is assured in Jesus Christ - He ha already redeemed you by paying the price for your sins on the cross. It is complete with His action of self-sacrifice and love for you, during His crucifixion. You can have that assurance.
But you have to accept it - it is not automatic and it is not the default.
You are not a believer in Christ Jesus simply because you do not openly profess some other religious belief.
Christianity is not the default setting in life -- but Hell is the default destination for ALL who reject the gift of salvation offered by Jesus.
And Jesus Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree (cross),
so that we, being dead to sins, can live in righteousness
For Christ also died for sins once fro all, the just for the unjust,
in order that He might bring us to God.
Jesus who knew no sin God made to be sin on our behalf,
that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 and Hebrews 10:36
