Salvation is free through faith in Jesus Christ, because He has already
paid the full price
for our sins, through His own Death on the Cross. His Death was the Final Atonement for sin. No other sacrifice is necessary, or acceptable, to God, in order to merit Salvation. Jesus is the Lamb of God, without spot or blemish, who has taken away the sins of the world through His own Blood shed for us. Following are the Scriptural facts taken straight from God's Holy Word, the Bible.
Salvation Is Free :
"Being justified freel
y by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:"
Romans 3:24, KJV
"He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely
give us all things?"
Romans 8:32, KJV
"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely
given to us of God."
1 Corinthians 2:12, KJV
"And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely
Revelation 21:6, KJV
"And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely
Revelation 22:17, KJV
Jesus Paid The Full Ransom Price For Our Redemption :
"Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom
Matthew 20:28, KJV
"Ye are bought with a price
; be not ye the servants of men."
1 Corinthians 7:23, KJV
"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom
for all, to be testified in due time."
1 Timothy 2:5-6, KJV
"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price
: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."
1 Corinthians 6:19-20, KJV
Jesus Bore Our Sins And Delivered Us From The Same :
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

"For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;"

"But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."
1 John 1:7, KJV
"And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world."
1 John 2:2, KJV

All We Must Do Is Repent, Believe And Receive :
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:"
John 1:12, KJV
"Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent."

"That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith."

1 John 5:13, KJV
So Salvation is free through faith in Jesus Christ. There is no
other way. Jesus Christ is the only way
to Salvation and the Father. He is the truth, because He spoke the truth, and He leads the only true way to Salvation. He is Life, because through His loving Sacrifice, He has opened the way to Salvation and Eternal Life to as many as who will believe in Him, and receive Him, by faith. Will you accept Jesus Christ as your Redeemer, Lord and Savior today? He patiently, and lovingly, stands at the door of your heart, waiting for you to repent of your sins and unbelief, and to invite Him in, through a decision of faith:
"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."
Revelation 3:20, KJV
