Salvation is passing from darkness to light

What is Salvation?

“but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

None of us are good. I repeat: none of us are good.

They have all fallen away;
 together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good,
 not even one. (Psalm 53:3)

Again:

“Enter not into judgment with your servant,
 for no one living is righteous before you.” (Psalm 143:2)

And because God is all-just:

“Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you,
 and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
 blessed are all those who wait for him.” (Isaiah 30:18)

He will punish us. But—and many think of this the wrong way—God is also all-loving:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

To write succinctly: we have all broken God’s law; therefore, He will punish us. God is all-loving; therefore, He created the conditions for us to be able to be saved by our own free-will. He will not just let us go free of our crimes unless we are saved.

How is one Saved?

“For ‘everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’” (Romans 10:13)

The answer is quite simple to ‘how is one saved.’ All somebody needs to do is believe Jesus is God (a part of one God with three characters; Jesus being the Son of God).

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:1–3)

One needs to believe Jesus came down to Earth in a human body, containing the mind of God.

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)

And that Jesus willingly gave himself as a sacrifice to die and to take up our sins.

“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,” (Galatians 1:3–4)

Succinctly, Jesus—the revelation of the God nobody has seen—willingly came to Earth to live a fully human life without sinning once. He gave himself as a sacrifice so that we could be with God. All one must do to be saved and allowed into Heaven is to believe these things with all your heart.
