What must I do?

Acts 16:29-31

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

Maybe you've heard about the end of the world. The Mayan calendar, an asteroid coming, 
famines, and earthquakes, droughts and pestilence. 
Maybe you've heard of Jesus Return.

Fear. Fear insights panic and sends a world into a frenzy.
How can you keep calm and have peace?
Can you be saved?
And how?

The jailer,  it was his responsibility to keep the prisoner in chains or he would die.
But God intervened. Paul and Silas were set free yet
remained in the prison so that the jailer and his family might be saved.

Believe on the Lord Jesus.
What does that mean?
Jesus, the only begotten son of God, left heaven
to come to earth. A sinless man. God in the flesh.
He lived the sinless life and paid for the sin of the world.
Nailed to a cross, the perfect sacrifice.
His body and blood the final sacrifice that would open the Holy of Holies
To all who called on His name.

Jesus died for whosoever would call on His Name 
And rose again from the dead three days later.
Jesus defeated death.

No more was man separated from God. 

Be Born again of the Spirit.
Call out to Jesus and yield your will to His.
Repent and ask for His forgiveness.

Be Born Again 
And you need not fear again.
