The quick and easy answer is yes. Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the whole world this includes past, present and future sins of everyone, everywhere. (1 John 2:2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not ours only but also for the whole world.)

The real problem for salvation is not sin. The price for sin has been paid, in full, by Jesus Christ. The real and most telling question God will ask you, (He may ask more questions but I am confident this one will be asked, probably first.) “What have you done with My Son, Jesus?” The answer to this question will determine where you spend eternity.

So how do you “get in” to Heaven? It is only through Jesus. In John 14:6 Jesus very clearly states, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Pretty simple, the path to getting the right answer to God’s question is through Jesus.

The Good News is everyone is eligible for salvation. The not so good news is many will reject Jesus. There are many reasons given for not following Christ but it all boils down to “pride”.
God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.(1 Peter 5:5, James 4:6) That is the key, a church word called repentance is what must happen before there can be true salvation.

Through repentance you admit you were wrong, you admit God was right and ask God to forgive you. It is also a turning away from the past attitude of you being in control and admitting or declaring that God is now in control of your life.

God reached out to me many times but I was too arrogant and stubborn to listen. It was not until I realized I was going nowhere and needed some direction for my life that I was open to God. I was invited to hear the Word of God at a business meeting that had an “optional” Sunday morning service. The Word was preached and the Word came to life in me. It is to true what is said in Romans 10:17 that faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Then I took that faith that came from hearing and I combined it with the Grace of God and I was saved. Using Ephesians 2:8 You are saved by grace through faith and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God. My salvation came when I confessed with my mouth the Lord Jesus and believed in my heart that God raised Christ from the dead, I was saved. (Romans 10:9)

It has been a wonderful journey that started over 15 years ago and grows stronger each day. No where in the Bible do I read my new life in Christ will be without trials but I do read daily how God will supply the strength, courage and power to overcome anything that comes my way.

God saved me by His word, explained/preached through faithful men and women of God. The word of God must be proclaimed for faith to come and salvation to take place. So we at One Drop of Blood have developed a product to open the door of conversation so that word of God can be proclaimed.
