Jesus is the good Shepherd.

Read the Bible starting from the New Testament to learn more about Him.

God gave His Son Jesus so you could become His son/daughter. Consider that Jesus is God made flesh, that He died bearing our sins and consequences of them. Believe with your heart that God raised Him from the dead. Call on the name of Jesus, and you will be saved. The Greek word for salvation is wholeness, healing, protection, deliverance. Having Jesus is having eternal life which begins when you believe on Jesus. Salvation is a free gift for all, by God’s grace and your faith. You put off your old self and walk in newness of life. You are adopted as a son/daughter of God, who is your Father. You are given a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. You are made perfect by the sacrifice of Jesus. His Holy Spirit of truth teaches you all things and you can trust in God as your provider. You are taken from darkness to light!

Romans 10:9 – 13 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

John 3:14 – 21 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
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.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

Acts 20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Luke 24:46 – 49 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
And ye are witnesses of these things.
And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Acts 2:37 – 38 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 10:42 – 43 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Romans 3:23 – 26 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
