X. THE WAY OF SALVATION MADE AS PLAIN AS DAY

“Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, and brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”—Acts xvi. 29-31.

The Philippian goaler, by a train of circumstances, which I have read in the Scripture lesson to-night, had been brought to a realization of the fact that he was a lost sinner, and had a deep yearning for salvation, and he put to Paul and Silas this direct question, “What must I do to be saved?” and Paul answered him in the words of the text, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” Nothing could be plainer, nothing could be more direct, nothing could be more positive than that. The way of salvation is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and the moment any man or woman or child really believes on the Lord Jesus Christ they are saved. If the most utterly lost man or woman in London should come into this hall to-night, and should here, or in the after-meeting, or after they have gone out, believe on the Lord Jesus, the moment they did it they would be saved. Some one may say, “But this was a word simply spoken to one man; what right have you to say that any man will be saved the same way?” Because the same thing is said over and over again in the Bible. For instance, you read in Acts x. 43: “To Him give all the prophets witness that through His name whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins.” There isn’t a man or a woman in this building to-night that needs to go out of it without all their sins being forgiven and blotted out. It is just one act, “Believe on the Lord Jesus and thou shalt be saved.”
