Salvation in Jesus Christ our Lord - Is A Free Gift From God

The wages of sin is death. The Gift of God is Eternal Life in Christ Jesus our Lord - Romans 6:23

 

SALVATION IS A FREE GIFT FROM GOD 


"For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God."  -  Ephesians 2:8



By Synthia Esther



JESUS CHRIST LOVES YOU! - JOHN 3:16


"For  God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that  whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.  For  God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the  world should be saved through Him."  -  John 3:16-17.


God  loves you with an ever lasting, unconditional love, and He desires to  bring you restoration, favor, joy, peace, hope, and happiness. Accepting  Jesus Christ as your Savior and friend is the most important decision  you will ever make. Salvation is God's free gift to all who confess  their sin's and surrender their life to Jesus Christ - Ephesians 2:8,  Romans 6:23.



 Salvation  is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given  to men by which we must be saved - Acts 4:12. If you have had a  difficult lifetime, God wants to give you a better life. 


"Though my  father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me" - Psalm 28:10.  


God's love is the light that shines in the darkness, for He has rescued  us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the  Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins - Col  1:13-14. 


Jesus states in John 3:7, "You must be born again." 


Being  born again simply means to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior,  and His free gift of salvation's plan. You cannot earn by works or buy  salvation, for it is a free gift of grace, mercy, and love from our  heavenly Father - Ephesians 2:8. 


We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God - Romans 3:23. 



We  all deserve to die and go to Hell, but God has a different plan. He  desires to give you a life filled with hope and a future - Jeremiah  29:11. Be assured, no matter what you have done in the past you can be  forgiven and are accepted by your Father, God. If you feel you have gone  too far into the depths of sin just remember this; God does not compare  our sin with other people. In comparison to God's Holiness we "all"  fall short. 


Please ... Listen to what the Bible says concerning humanities sin,  "All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous  acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the  wind our sins sweep us away" - Isaiah 64:6.

Satan  desires to sift you like wheat - Luke 22:31. He roams through the earth  going back and forth in it, always seeking whom he can destroy - Job  1:7. 


But the Son of God came to destroy the devil's work - 1st John 3:8.  God loved us all so much, He gave His only begotten son Jesus, to die  on Calvary's cross - John 3:16. 


Jesus became our substitute by the  shedding of His blood, which paid sins price for humanities redemption.  God made Him (Jesus), who had no sin, to be sin for us, so that in Him  we might become the righteousness of God - 2nd Corinthians 5:21.

You  may ask, "Why did Jesus have to shed His blood and die for our sins to  be forgiven?" 


The Bible says in Leviticus 17:11, "For the life of a  creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement  for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for  ones life." 


Hebrews 9:22, ..."without the shedding of blood there is not  forgiveness." Christ's shed blood, death, and resurrection provides us  the free gift of salvation and eternal life - Romans 6:23. 


Because of  His unconditional, everlasting love, while we were still sinners, Christ  died for us - Romans 10:13. We are set free by the blood of the lamb of  sacrifice, Jesus Christ! 


HOW TO RECEIVE YOUR FREE GIFT OF SALVATION 


To  receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior you repent of your sins -  Acts 17:30. Believe in His name, death, and resurrection, and by faith  receive Him as your Lord and Savior. For everyone who calls on the name  of the Lord will be saved - Romans 10:13. 


To all who receive Him, to  those who believe in His name, He gave the right to become children of  God - John 1:12.   Then you will live your life according to His word,  the Holy Bible.  There will be a change within your spirit, your walk,  and your talk.   You will strive to live your life as an example of  God's love.  For God wants us to be Holy, as He Is Holy. 


I  PETER 1:13-16,  "Therefore, gird your minds for action, keep sober in  spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at  the revelation of Jesus Christ.  (14)  As obedient children, do not be  conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance,  (15)   but like the Holy One who called you, be Holy yourselves also in all  your behavior;  (16)  because it is written, "You Shall Be Holy, For I  Am Holy."


 

A PRAYER OF SALVATION 


Dear God,

 I  know I am a sinner.  I believe Jesus Christ, the Messiah, was my sin  substitute when He died on the Cross of Calvary.  I believe His shed  blood, death, and resurrection were for me.  I ask Him to forgive me of  my sins, and I receive Him as my Lord and Savior. 


I surrender my heart and life to you God, and seek to do your will. I ask these things in Jesus Christ's name. 

Amen. 


CONGRATULATIONS AND WELCOME INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD !


If  you have said that simple prayer of faith with humble heart felt  sincerity, and true repentance, you are a child of the King of kings -  Jesus Christ!  


We  who are born again, walk in the precepts of God's Holy Word.  What does  that mean?  Simply to get to know God according to His word, and act in  love according to His actions.  To further our walk with Christ we read  His word of instruction , the Holy Bible, which is living and active -  Hebrews 4:12. You will also want to find a Bible believing local church  where you can grow in faith and worship Him. Let us consider how we may  spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up  meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us  encourage one another, and all the more as you see the day approaching -  Hebrews 10:24-25. 


"For where two or three come together in my name,  there am I with them." - Matthew 18:20.   Another positive step towards  living in the fullness of God and His word, is to be Baptized in water  (Acts 2:41; 8:38; 16:33).


And  remember...no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived  what God has prepared for those who love him - 1st Corinthians 2:9.

One  of the most important task as Christians will be to witness and tell  everyone who will listen, that Jesus Christ is the only answer to the  sin and destructive patterns and problems that plague humanity. God's  light is more powerful than the deepest darkness. We can cast all our  anxiety on Him, because He cares for us - 1st Peter 5:7.

THE LORD IS WITH YOU ALWAYS -


Lamentations  3:22-25, "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for His  compassion's never fail. They are new every morning; great is your  faithfulness. I say to myself, 'The Lord is my portion; therefore I will  wait on Him.' The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the  one who seeks Him."

Proverbs  4:11-13, "I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight  paths. When you walk, your steps are not hampered; when you run, you  will not stumble. Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it  well; for it is your life."

Psalm 121:12, "My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of the Heaven and Earth."

Psalm  121:7-8, "The Lord will keep you from harm - He will watch over your  life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and  forevermore."

Psalm  144:2, "He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my  deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under  me."

Psalm 145:18, "The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth."
