Subject 1: Being born again of water and the Spirit
1-19. Why do we have to believe in Jesus?
We have to believe in Jesus: ① to fulfill the will of God ② to be saved from all our sins ③ to enter the Kingdom of Heaven so that we may live forever with the Lord. We are all sinners who would fall into hell without faith in Jesus Christ, our Savior. Only Jesus is our Savior who can rescue us from hell. We have to believe in Jesus because only He is the true Savior. • Where do the people who believe in Jesus and are redeemed of all their sins end up? —In Heaven.— • Where do those who neither believe in Jesus nor are redeemed finally end up? —In hell for all their sins; the lake, which burns with fire and brimstone (Revelation 21:8).— • Who are the sheep of God? —Those who receive the remission of sins by believing in the baptism and the blood of Jesus.— And “other sheep which are not of this fold” (John 10:16) are goats because they arbitrarily believe in what they understand by instinct, because they are still sinners while the ones who believe in the baptism and the blood of Jesus are saved all at once and become God’s sheep.
