1 John 4:9, In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
Salvation means that your relationship with God is made right. This is God’s plan for your life because He loves you and wants a relationship with you. Salvation brings new life which includes (among other things) eternal life, peace with God, peace in your life, forgiveness of all your sins, purpose in this life and the next. Our salvation is the reason Jesus came to earth and died on the cross. (John 3:16).
The Bible is clear that we have all inherited a sin nature and have fallen short of God’s glory through our sins (Romans 3:23). These sins separate us from God. When we are saved, our sins are forgiven and they no longer separate us from God. If someone dies without this forgiveness of sins, he or she will be separated from God for all eternity.
The important thing is seeing your need for a savior, and then recognizing that he is Jesus. When Jesus died on the cross, his death fulfilled the payment for all sins. So we cannot “pay for our sins” again—we cannot earn salvation. It is a gift of God (Romans 6:23). To receive this gift, we make Jesus our Lord. We then become God’s child.
