Salvation

 

Jesus is the reason that we can win in this life and eternally. He said in Revelations 3:20, “Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.” God loves us and desires an intimate relationship with us all and that is why He sent His only begotten Son in the person of Jesus Christ who took on the sins of the world when He was crucified on the cross. He paid the price for a punishment that mankind rightfully deserved to pay because of the fall of Adam.

 

Jesus became cursed so that we could be blessed through His death, burial, and resurrection. God’s only requirement from us to partake of His benefit package of abundant and eternal life with Him is that we accept the sacrifice that Jesus made.

 

God is so awesome in that He made this process very easy. Romans 10:8-13 explains it this way: “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, ‘Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.’ For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For ‘whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.’”

 

Won’t you accept this wonderful gift God has given you and invite Jesus Christ into your heart and life by praying these words?

 

Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and separated from God, the Father, but I desire to be reconciled back to Him. Please forgive me of my sin. I believe that You were born in the earth through the virgin Mary. I believe that You are the Son of God who was crucified for my sins, buried in a tomb, and rose again on the third day. I believe that your shed blood cleansed me from all unrighteousness. I believe in my heart that You are alive and seated at the right hand of God in heaven making intercession for me forever. Please come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord. Lord, fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that He can teach me Your ways, helping me to live a victorious, abundant life here on earth. Thank You for restoring me back to our Heavenly Father. This I pray and receive in Jesus’ Name…Amen!
