Salvation is a free gift.  All we have to do is accept it.  Having faith in His Word to mankind and believing what He tells us is the key to eternal life.   Follow and obey the Lord in all things.  

Another word for Salvation is “born again.”  You have been set free from the bondage of sin.  When you believe God walked the earth in the flesh, died for your sins, was crucified, buried in a tomb, and rose three days later so those that believe could have eternal life, that is Salvation.  You have to decide, in your mind, you wish to do a turn-around, repent and follow Christ.
