I hope you got the picture with all the verses I posted. When Jesus repeatedly told everyone that if they believed on/in Him they would be saved, he meant if they would trust in, rely on(believe) Him (His blood sacrifice of Himself for our sins), they would be saved (forgiven) of all their sins which were keeping them seperated from God, and which would eventually eternally seperate them from God after death if they didn't receive the pardon offered through Jesus blood.
You see sin seperates us from God; which is death. When Adam sinned in the garden of Eden, he and Eve died spiritually (they became seperated from the life of God spiritually), then later they would die physically because of their sin, and if they had not believed on a future Messiah/Savior, they would have suffered the eternal spiritual death after physical death. Because their sin nature was passed down to all mankind since them, we are all seperated from God, and we will all die physically and make our eternal home of death in hell unless we do what God told us to do; believe (trust) on Jesus as our Savior from the punishment of our sins through His blood (atonement) shed for us (all our sins).
God made a law that without the shedding of blood, there can be no remission of sins. Further, you must trust in (believe on) Jesus blood as the atonement for your personal sins and tell God so to receive what has been freely provided to you by God's grace, or you won't posses it. If you never receive Jesus as your Savior by putting faith in His blood sacrifice to provide you forgiveness of your sins, you will never posses forgiveness; neither in this age nor in the age to come. You will have to pay the wages of your own sin which is death, and that death will be eternal because there is no forgiveness of those sins (or the wages of them) without Jesus perfect, sinless, blood. That is why Jesus is the only way, truth, and life. NO man comes unto the Father (God) but by Him. We are hopelessly and forever seperated from our Father God without receiving that blood because that is the wages of sin.
The good news is we need not anyone suffer eternal death for the payment of our own sins. We have the free gift of eternal life offered to us through Jesus sacrifice on that beloved cross. All we have to do is what Jesus told us to do- believe (trust in, rely on) Him. If we do that and tell Him so, His blood takes away all our sin forever (for he died for ALL our sins once for all time; making a complete payment). We will never have to pay the debt that we owed for our sin because we will have received aquittal from our punishment of death.
If you would like to receive God's free gift of forgiveness provided to you by Jesus blood atonement and become an adopted child of God and co- heir with Christ Jesus, please pray this prayer:
Heavenly Father, I believe that you sent your Son to die as my substitute for the forgiveness of my sins through His shed blood. I believe that You raised Him from the dead on the third day so that I can have eternal life with You. Jesus, I now trust in you as my Savior. Thank you for paying my debt of sin for me. Come into my heart and be my Lord. I thank you that you've promised if I call on you, you will save me; so now I am saved. Thank you God for giving this free gift to me!
In Jesus name I pray this,
