Why must I believe in Jesus to be saved?

 

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

God loved you (put your name in here) so much that he gave His only unique Son so that if you (put your name in here) believe in Him, you won't die, but you will have a Aionial life. This is a specific kind of life that never ends.

 

... and it's a free gift to you... if you will accept it.

There is no other way.

Christ is the Head of the Body in Heaven, but 1 Corinthians 12:12 tells us that Christ is also a many-membered Body here on Earth. That is why it is so important to discern the Body of Christ. It is important that we become one as a Body by the Holy Spirit. This also means that you, as a believer, have become a member of Christ. Your spirit has been largely set free. The battle is now to overcome on the level of your mind. This is the process of fitting into the Body of Christ. When the Church finally comes to full maturity in submission to Christ, then you will see the Manifestation of the Sons of God that is written in Romans 8:19 (see http://seekfind.net/Romans_819_For_The_Earnest_Expectation_Of_The_Creature_Waiteth_For_The_Manifestation_Of_The_Sons_Of_God.html) You can find out much more about this by looking at this page, http://seekfind.net/Meaning_of_Life.html and the links from that page.

I clipped the following from http://seekfind.net/John_3_16_What_does_it_really_mean_.html.

Well, who is Christ? Christ is the Head of the Body in Heaven, yes. Christ is also a many-membered Body here on Earth. When we serve each other, we do serve Him. When we build up each other, as you are doing, we build Him up. ! Corinthians 12::12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. Paul is comparing the physical body to the Church, the members of the physical body and the members of the Church. Then he calls the Church, Christ. And it is Christ. It is the Body of Christ in a very real sense.

To believe into Christ, a person must first be born again. From that point, this person begins to believe Christ rather than believing all the teachings of men and evil spirits. As the Holy Spirit unfolds His revelation, the orders that are so clearly shown in the Bible become real and understandable to the believer. God speaks to every person all the time. We were created to be directed, as God utters His Word to us, and powered by the Holy Spirit from moment to moment. Most people don't listen at all. A remnant, a small company of believers, are beginning to learn to listen and respond in God's faith which comes as God utters His Word to us. (some caveats about hearing God's Voice)

Believing into Christ is a process of:

  1. discerning what is and what is not the Body of Christ,
  2. and discerning what is and what is not your own particular place of service within this Body of Christ,
  3. and finally to become what God created you to become in the Body of Christ.

See, sayeth He, that you build all things according to the pattern. God is speaking to us about the pattern that He has given in Scripture. The foundation of the Church must be laid first. First Christ, then the apostles built on Christ as foundation of the Church. These apostles were restored to the Church in the late 1940s. God has been restoring His Church to its original glory and purpose since it left God's pattern in the early centuries after Jesus ascended and gave gifts to men. May God bless you in this work.
