									INVESTIGATE THE TRUTH
   OF GOD’S PLAN OF
      SALVATION
 And they asked --- “WHAT SHALL
   WE DO THAT WE MAY BE
             SAVED!”
      WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN TO
     CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD?
l   Not This:
     l Calling the name "Lord, Lord" (Mt. 7:21-23)
     l Praying the "Sinner's Prayer" (_?????_)
l   But This:
     l Believing (Rom. 10:14)
     l Hearing and heeding the calling of God (Acts 2:21, 39;
       cf. 2 Th. 2:13-14; 1 Pet. 1:22-23)
     l Obedience to the will of the Lord (Luke. 6:46; 1 John 2:3
       -6)
     l Repentance and baptism (Acts 2:21, 36-41)
     l Baptism (Acts 22:16)
     l Trusting and depending upon God throughout one's life
       (Acts 9:14)
    ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD...
l   When he left Ur of the Chaldees (Heb. 11:8;
    Acts 7:2-4; Gen. 11:31)
l   When God promised him that his own child
    would be his heir (Gen. 15:6; Rom. 4:3; Gal.
    3:6)
l   When God promised that Sarah would bear a
    son (Rom. 4:18-22; Gen. 17:15-21)
l   When he offered up Isaac (Jas. 2:21-23)
     ...AND IT WAS RECKONED UNTO HIM FOR
                RIGHTEOUSNESS
    BY “FAITH” DOES NOT MEAN
           “FAITH ONLY”
l   “By faith Abel OFFERED unto God a more excellent
    sacrifice than Cain....” (Heb. 11:4)
l   “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see
    death...for he hath had witness borne to him that
    before his translation he had been WELL-PLEASING
    unto God” (Heb. 11:5)
l   “By faith Noah, being warned of God concerning
    things not seen as yet, MOVED with godly fear,
    PREPARED an ark to the saving of his house....”
    (Heb. 11:7)
l   “By faith Abraham, when he was called, OBEYED to
    go out unto a place which he was to receive for an
    inheritance; and he WENT OUT, not knowing whither
    he went. By faith he BECAME A SOJOURNER in the
    land of promise....” (Heb. 11:8-9)
        REPENTANCE BEFORE FAITH?
l   “Repentance is always mentioned before faith in every
    passage where both are mentioned together (cf. Mt. 21:31-
    32; Mk. 1:14-15; Acts 20:21; Heb. 6:1)”
    l   BUT --- THE Order of Mention Does NOT MEAN THE ORDER IN
        GOD’S PLAN.
l   How can the goodness of God lead a sinner to repent
    (Rom. 2:4), unless he first believes that God is good?
l   Godly sorrow leads to repentance (2 Cor. 7:10), but how
    can one have godly sorrow unless he first believes in God?
l   Jesus directed His apostles that repentance be preached
    among all nations (Lk. 24:46-47), but if a sinner cannot
    believe until after he has repented, why preach to him until
    then?
       MAN IS SAVED BY...
l   Belief (Acts 16:31)
l   Repentance (2 Cor. 7:10)
l   Confession (Rom. 10:9-10)
l   Grace (Eph. 2:8-10; Tit. 2:11)
l   Mercy (Tit. 3:5)
l   The Longsuffering Of The Lord (2 Pet.
    3:15)
l   Jesus (Mt. 1:21)
         MAN IS SAVED BY...
l   Jesus' Blood (Rom. 5:9)
l   Jesus' Life (Rom. 5:10)
l   The Gospel (Rom. 1:16-17; 1 Cor. 15:1-2)
l   Hope (Rom. 8:24)
l   Calling On The Name Of The Lord (Rom. 10:13)
l   Obedience (Heb. 5:8-9)
l   Works (Jas. 2:24)
l   Baptism (1 Pet. 3:21; Acts 2:38; 22:16; Mk.
    16:15-16)
