Take A Step Today
—The steps to salvation
Take a Step Today
I wrote and printed this song back in the 1960s. You are free to use this song any way you please on the understanding that I retain the copyright and reserve all rights. The song presents the steps to salvation as shown in the chart in the introduction to this series "What Must I Do?".
This song is based on what the gospel of Christ or New Testament says about what we must do to be saved. Of course we do what we must do, understanding that Christ has done what we could not do.
He has made the perfect sacrifice for our sins and mediated to us a covenant which is good news (gospel) promising eternal life to us if we believe in him and do as he says.
The steps in this song are found in many passages of scripture. I've included a short scripture chain supporting the steps taught in the song. Note that elsewhere on simplybible.com we present six steps. Hearing and believing are treated as two steps, whereas in the song they are combined as one step. Both ways of presenting the steps to salvation by grace are correct.
(John 3:16, Romans 1:16-17)
(Acts 3:19, 2Peter 3:9)
(Romans 10:9-10, Matthew 10:32)
(Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16)
(Colossians 1:23, Galatians 5:22-25)
