New Testament Conversions

(New Testament Conversions) Bible Lesson.

Today’s post is a follow-up to a question recently asked on this website (“How Does One Enter the Kingdom of Heaven?”)

Because God shows no favoritism (Acts 10:34, 35; Acts 15:6 – 11; Galatians 2:6; Romans 2:11; Ephesians 6:9), what He requires for one – He requires for all. We can conclude that the persons identified were at different points on the same road to salvation.

.

  • 3,000 people on Pentecost (Acts 2:36 – 42)

They Heard the Gospel, Believed the Gospel, Repented of their sins, and were Baptized.

.

  • The Samaritans (Acts 8:4 – 12)

  • The Philippian Jailor (Acts 16:23 – 34)

  • The Corinthians (Acts 18:4 – 11)

  • The Ephesians (Acts 19:1 – 7)

These people Heard the Gospel, Believed the Gospel and were Baptized.

.

  • The Ethiopian Eunuch (Acts 8:26 – 39)

He heard the Gospel, Believed the Gospel, Confessed Faith in Christ and was Baptized.

.

  • Saul (Paul) (Acts 9:17 – 20; 22:1 – 16)

  • Cornelius (Acts 10:25 – 48; 11:12 – 14)

  • Lydia (Acts 16:13 – 15)

These three people Heard the Gospel and were Baptized.

.

Taking together all 9 Biblical examples of how people were saved at the very beginning, they (and we) must do the following. . . 

  1. Hear the Gospel
  2. Believe the Gospel
  3. Repent of our Sins
  4. Confess Faith in Jesus Christ
  5. Be Baptized

In the next post I will give a thumbnail sketch of what these 5 actions mean.
