The First Steps How to Be Saved By Jesus in Do You Pray Series

The First Steps How to Be Saved By Jesus

“The First Steps How To Be Saved By Jesus”

Part 8b, of “Do You Pray?”

by J. C. Ryle

Let me speak to those who have real desires for salvation, but know not what steps to take, or where to begin.”

Saved by God Because God Gives Power to Take That First Step

“I cannot but hope that some readers may be in this state of mind, and if there be but one such I must offer him affectionate counsel.

In every journey there must be a first step.  There must be a change from sitting still to moving forward.  The journeyings of Israel from Egypt to Canaan were long and wearisome.  Forty years pass away before they crossed Jordan.  Yet there was some one who moved first when they marched from Ramah to Succoth.”

Your Home For God, Go-this-day-to-the-Lord-Jesus-Christ-and-entreat-him-to-save-your-soul

Go this very day to the Lord Jesus Christ, in the first private place you can find, and earnestly and heartily entreat him in prayer to save your soul. J. C. Ryle

Saved by God Because His Holy Spirit Began His Work

“In every building the first stone must be laid, and the first blow must be struck.  The ark was one hundred and twenty years in building.  Yet there was a day when Noah laid his axe to the first tree he cut down to form it.

The temple of Solomon was a glorious building.  But there was a day when the first huge stone was laid deep in mount Moriah. When does the building of the Spirit really begin to appear in a man’s heart?  It begins, so far as we can judge, when he first pours out his heart to God in prayer.”

You Can Be Saved Because Jesus Receives Sinners

“If you desire salvation, and want to know what to do, I advise you to go this very day to the Lord Jesus Christ, in the first private place you can find, and earnestly and heartily entreat him in prayer to save your soul.

Tell him that you have heard that he receives sinners, and has said, ‘Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out.’  Tell him that you are a poor vile sinner, and that you come to him on the faith of his own invitation.”

Saved Because, Except He Saves You, You Have No Hope At All

“Tell him you put yourself wholly and entirely in his hands; that you feel vile and helpless, and hopeless in yourself; and that except he saves you, you have no hope of being saved at all.

Beseech him to deliver you from the guilt, the power, and the consequences of sin.  Beseech him to pardon you, and wash you in his own blood.  Beseech him to give you a new heart, and plant the Holy Spirit in your soul.”

Beseech him to deliver you from the guilt, the power, and the consequences of sin.  Beseech him to pardon you, and wash you in his own blood.  Beseech him to give you a new heart, and plant the Holy Spirit in your soul.” J. C. Ryle

Only Way to be Saved is By The blood of the Lord Jesus Christ

Beseech him to give you grace and faith and will and power to be his disciple and servant from this day for ever.  Oh, reader, go this very day, and tell these things to the Lord Jesus Christ, if you really are in earnest about your soul.

Tell him in your own way, and your own words.  If a doctor came to see you when sick you could tell him where you felt pain.  If your soul feels its disease indeed, you can surely find something to tell Christ.”

Your Home For God, beseech-him-to-give-you-grace-and-faith-and-will-and-power-to-be-his-disciple-and-servant-for-ever

Beseech him to give you grace and faith and will and power to be his disciple and servant from this day for ever.

Doubt not his willingness to save you, because you are a sinner.  It is Christ’s office to save sinners.  He says himself, ‘I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance’ (Luke 5:32).”

Become God’s Child Just As You Are

“Wait not because you feel unworthy.  Wait for nothing.  Wait for nobody.  Waiting comes from the devil.  Just as you are, go to Christ.  The worse you are, the more need you have to apply to him.  You will never mend yourself by staying away.

Fear not because your prayer is stammering, your words feeble, and your language poor.  Jesus can understand you.  Just as a mother understands the first lispings of her infant, so does the blessed Saviour understand sinners.  He can read a sigh, and see a meaning in a groan.”

“Look through the lives of the brightest and best of God’s servants, whether in the Bible or not.  See what is written of Moses and David and Daniel and Paul.”

“When does a man really take a first step in coming out from sin and the world? He does it in the day when he first prays with his heart.”

Just as you are, go to Christ.  The worse you are, the more need you have to apply to him.  You will never mend yourself by staying away.

You can be Saved Because Jesus Is Listening

“Despair not because you do not get an answer immediately.  While you are speaking, Jesus is listening.”

Jesus Always Answers–Go to him now to be saved

“If he delays, it is only for wise reasons, and to try if you are in earnest.  The answer will surely come.  Though it tarry, wait for it.  It will surely come.

Oh, reader, if you have any desire to be saved, remember the advice I have given you this day.  Act upon it honestly and heartily, and you shall be saved.”

Do you Pray – 10 Part Series

Are you a Mom? May I suggest that you use this as a read aloud with your family this summer! Do you think your kids are not old enough yet? Read it anyway. They don’t have to understand every word. It will prepare them to listen and sit still, and there is truth from the Bible in it.

If your kids are a bit older, take time during your family devotions or in the evenings, or with them right after lunch, or during your Morning Basket time, if you do that. The littlest ones won’t get everything, but you’ll be surprised how much they will get.
