Sowing The Seed Series
Class 4 – Salvation

1.    Gospel Plan of Salvation

a.    Hear – Romans 10:17

b.    Believe – John 8:24, John 3:16

c.    Repent – Luke 13:3, Acts 17:30

d.    Confess – Matthew 10:32, Romans 10:9-10

e.    Be baptized – Acts 2:38, 1 Peter 3:21

f.     Remain Faithful – Revelation 2:10

2.    What about the thief on the cross? (Luke 23:42-43)

a.    The thief may have already been right with God (Luke 23:42)

                                          i.    He knew about the kingdom (Matt 3:2, 4:17)

b.    The New Law was not yet in force (Heb 9:15-17)

                                          i.    A testament is in force after men are dead

c.    Jesus had the power to save anyone while on Earth (Matt 9:1-6)

                                          i.    Jesus was in the flesh when He saved the thief

3.    We are saved by faith only not by  works (Eph 2:8)

a.    Notice we are created unto good works (Eph 2:10)

b.    Faith is a work of God (John 6:29)

                                          i.    Baptism is a work of God (Col 2:12)

c.    Jesus does not say to avoid good works but to have the proper attitude (Luke 17:7-10)

d.    Faith without works is dead (James 2:14-26)

4.    We are saved by calling on the name of the Lord (Rom 10:10-15)

a.    First of all, Paul shows a sequence of events leading up to salvation

                                          i.    Send, preach, hear, believe, and then call

                                        ii.    Calling comes after believing

b.    Secondly, Paul does not explain how to call in these passages

                                          i.    We can see how to call from Paul’s conversion (Acts 9, 22)

1.    Paul was NOT saved on the road to Damascus

2.    Paul was blind, did not eat, and was praying

a.    He prayed to make this right

3.    Ananias told Paul to be baptized (Acts 22:16)

a.    After baptism his sins were washed and he had called on the name of the Lord

                                        ii.    We can also see how from Peter (Acts 2:21, 38)

1.    Compare verse 21 to 38 and notice three comparisons

a.    Shall be saved = remission of sins

b.    Name of the Lord = name of Jesus Christ

c.    Call on the name = Repent and be baptized
