God sent His beloved Son into the world not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. God’s Son Our Lord Jesus Christ paid the price for all our sins, so that we will receive forgiveness if we believe and trust in His beloved Son (Matthew 3:17, Matthew 11:28-30 KJV, Matthew 17:5, John 3:1-12, John 3:16, John 3:27-36, John 6:68-69, John 11:25-27, John 20:30-31 NASB, Acts 3:17-23, Romans 3:21-26, Ephesians 1:3-10, Hebrews 1:1-4, 2 Peter 1:17-18, 1 John 5:9-12).
6 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
1 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. 5 Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6 On account of these the wrath of God is coming. 7 In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. 8 But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. 11 Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. 12 Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
2 Thessalonians 3:16
16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.

The way you are to express your belief and trust in His beloved Son is that you are to repent of your sins, confess Jesus is the Christ the Son of Living God and be baptized (Ezekiel 18:23, Matthew 13:15, Matthew 18:3, Matthew 16:16, Matthew 26:63-64, John 11:25-27, Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3:21), and learn and obey the commandments and the teachings that our Lord Jesus Christ has given us (Matthew 7:24-27, Matthew 11:28-30 KJV, Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:14-16, Luke 20:21, John 7:16), his Apostles teachings (Acts 1:1-8, Acts 2:42, Romans 1:1-6), the Hebrews writer (Hebrews 1:1-4), and the Lord’s brothers James and Jude (Matthew 13:55 NASB, 1 Corinthians 9:5, James 1:1, Jude 1:1), and the former teachings and examples of the Old Testament revealed to us by the men of God as they were moved by the Holy Spirit as written in the inspired word of God (Romans 15:4 KJV, 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:19-21). and live a life being faithful and obedient unto death (Matthew 16:26, Luke 8:15, Luke 21:19, Romans 5:1-5, Romans 8:18-25, Hebrews 10:35-39, Hebrews 12:1-17, James 1:3-4, James 5:10-11, 1 Peter 2:19-25, 1 Peter 3:14-17 KJV, 1 Peter 4:12-19, Jude 1:17-25, Revelation 2:10-11, Revelation 3:10-11).
After having our sins washed away in baptism we are able to draw closer to God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (2 Chronicles 15:2, Zechariah 1:3, Matthew 6:25-34, Hebrews 7:19, Hebrews 10:22, James 4:8) through prayer, and through the inspired word of God with an active obedient faith, trust, and love (Proverbs 3:5-7, Matthew 4:4, Matthew 22:37-39, John 14:23, Acts 6:7, Romans 1:5, Romans 5:19, Romans 6:16, 2 Corinthians 1:9 NASB, Ephesians 6:10-18, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, Hebrews 4:12, Hebrews 10:35-39, James 1:3-4, James 1:12-25, James 2:14-20, 1 Peter 1:2, 1 Peter 1:14, 1 Peter 1:22, 2 Peter 1:1-11 NASB, 1 John 4:13-21).
These are just but a few of the scriptural passages and verses that answer the question on how to receive salvation through God’s grace of redemption that is being offered in Christ Jesus.

(Matthew 3:13-17, Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15-16, Luke 3:21-22, John 1:31-34, Acts 2:36-38, Acts 8:12, Acts 8:26-39, Acts 9:15-18, Acts 22:16, Romans 6:1-11, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:23-29, Ephesians 4:5, 1 Peter 3:18-22).
Be Faithful unto Death:
(Matthew 16:26, Luke 8:15, Luke 21:19, Romans 5:1-5, Romans 8:18-25, Hebrews 10:35-39, Hebrews 12:1-17, James 1:3-4, James 5:10-11, 1 Peter 2:19-25, 1 Peter 3:14-17 KJV, 1 Peter 4:12-19, Jude 1:17-25, Revelation 2:10-11, Revelation 3:10-13).
The gift of Salvation is a precious gift that has been paid for by the precious blood of our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus and should not be taken lightly.
This is the only way to have peace both in this life and the one to come with God our Father, our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
1 Timothy 2:1-7 KJV
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
Our Lord and Saviour laid down His life and died on the cross for the love He has for all people that have been and will be born on this earth so we could be reunited with God for all eternity in peace and joy. The gift of salvation is only received by trusting and being obedient to the words given us through the inspired word of God, the gospel of salvation.
Our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus is worthy of our praise and worship.
