What Shall I Do To Be Saved?

By Rev. Dr. Curian Kaniyamparambil


Question 3. Non-Christians who were saved (The Book of Acts)

Let us look at some of the people who were described as saved in the book of Acts. This gives us a good starting point for our discussion on salvation.

a) 3000 people on the day of Pentecost - (Acts 2:41)

b) Later 5000 people - (Acts 4:4)

c) Saul - (Acts 9:18)

d) Prison Keeper - (Acts 16:33)

e) Lydia - (Acts 16:15)

f) Cornelius - (Acts 10:48)

g) Crispus - (Acts 18: 8)

h) People of Ephesus - (Acts 19:5)

i) Zaccaus and his family, because of Our Lord's visit to his home - (Luke 19:9)

j) The Ethiopian eunuch - (Acts 8:38)

For salvation:

1) One has to listen to the true words of salvation

2) One has to work out their own salvation with fear and trembling (Phili.2:12)

3) For salvation one has to believe with his heart for righteousness, and confess with the mouth (Rom 10:10). God did not appoint us to wrath but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

[Please refer to Acts 13:16, II Thess. 2:13, Eph 1:14, 1 Peter 1:10]
