Bible Study Notes & Outlines


What Happens When a Person Gets Saved?

2 Cor. 5:17
INTRODUCTION: What actually happens when a person is born again? He repents of his sins, that is, he acknowledges to God that he is a sinner and that he needs a Savior. He accepts Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, and at that moment he is born again. His sins are forgiven. He receives eternal life from God.

I. HE BECOMES A CHILD OF GOD. (John 1:12)
You can imagine how honored you would feel if you were the child of some world-famous ruler. How much greater honor it is to be the child of the mighty Maker of the universe, before whom angels bow! (Galatians 3:26).

2. HE IS JUSTIFIED BY GOD. (Romans 5:1; 8:30, 33)

God, the Judge, declares the believing sinner to be "NOT GUILTY" and looks upon him as if he had never sinned. Thus the Christian stands without guilt in God's sight, and he will never be punished for his sins. (Romans 8:1).

3. THE BELIEVER IS ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED ONE. (Ephesians 1:6).

This means that he stands before God in all the acceptability of His Beloved Son. God sees him in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17). It also means that the Christian is welcome in God's presence as long as Christ is welcome, and that is clearly forever. (Ephesians 2:6, 7)

4. HE RECEIVES THE DIVINE NATURE. (2 Peter 1:4)
He will soon notice that he has new desires, new ambitions, a new hatred of sin, and a new love for his fellow Christians. When the divine nature is encouraged by the believer himself, he will become more and more like the Lord Jesus.

5. HE BECOMES INDWELT BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. (1 Cor. 6:19)

The Bible plainly teaches that God, the Holy Spirit, actually dwells within each believer (1 John 4:13). The body of the Christian is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

6. HE IMMEDIATELY BEGINS TO ENJOY THE CONSTANT PROTECTION OF GOD. (Romans 8:28)
Nothing can happen to a Christian without God's permission. In other words, there are no accidents in a believer's life. Everything that does happen to a child of God is for his own good.

7. HE BECOMES AN HEIR OF GOD. (Romans 8:17)
God is the Creator of the universe and He owns all things. God's children are promised that they will one day reign with Christ over all the earth, and they will then possess all things.
