1 Corinthians 15:50-58
Mystery and Victory I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. ( ESV)

The ABC’s of Salvation
Admit that you have sinned. Because of that sin you have a need for a savior. Ask God for forgiveness.
Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the son of God, that He came and lived a sinless life, died on the cross for your sins, rose from the dead, is now seated at the right hand of God.
Commit your life to Jesus Christ in total surrender and allow Christ to be seated on the throne of your heart as Lord of your life!
