20 Bible Verses on Salvation and Eternal Life
Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses on salvation and eternal life. This is one of the most debated topics in the Christian faith. The scripture said in the book of John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Salvation comes first by hearing the word of God and believing in the only begotten son of the father. During this process, a man confesses his sin and accepts the supremacy of God over his life and he submits himself rulership of Christ Jesus.
God stated that He takes no pride in the death of a sinner but repentance through Christ Jesus. And the scripture said whoever believes in Jesus Christ will not die but have eternal life. Eternal Life is the life after this physical realm. This is the hope of our salvation as believers. Christ said I’m going to prepare a place for you so that where I am you may be too one day. Eternal life is our inheritance through Christ Jesus. And if there is anything every believer must work on getting it is eternal life. Getting it is not automatic. That’s why the scripture stated that no man who lays his hands on the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of heaven. Let he that thinks he stands to take heed unless he falls.
The enemy will do everything to rob believers of their salvation. When a believer loses his or her salvation, eternal life becomes a mirage. That’s why every believer must work heavily on their salvation and guide it jealously. Seek first the kingdom of heaven and every other thing shall be added. As we work out our salvation, we have compiled a list of 20 bible verses on salvation and eternal life. These bible verses will enlighten us better about salvation and eternal life.
1. Matthew 8:18-22
When Jesus saw the crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other side of the lake. Then a teacher of the law came to him and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” Another disciple said to him, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” But Jesus told him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”
2. John 3:16-18
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
3. Acts 16:30-33
He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his household were baptized.
4. Romans 8:38-39
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
5. Romans 10:9-10
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
6. Philippians 3:4-11
though I myself have reasons for such confidence. If someone else thinks they have reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more: circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee; as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for righteousness based on the law, faultless. But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.
7. Isaiah 57:12
I will expose your righteousness and your works, and they will not benefit you.

13. Matthew 7:21
Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
14. 2 Timothy 1:9
He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.
15. Psalm 62:1
Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him.
16. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
