Have you ever wondered... Have you ever meditated or given any importance to these questions befo- re? If you haven't, you are ignoring the most crucial and valuable subject of your life: Your Salvation. (Matthew 16:26) Jesus said: "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? We also read "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him " (Hebrews 2:3) Yes my friend, to live without God's Salvation is like living for nothing; like throwing your life into a garbage can or furnace: Hell Isn't that a real waste? Please, don't let it happens to you!
What is it? Biblically, God's Salvation can easily be described as: "The Grace and Mercy of God gifted to human beings by which He(God) exonerated(pardon) all our guiltiness and impurities(sins) and rescues us from the condemnation of death and eternal punishment because of sin" (Ro.3:24) Yes,...we all do! We are all born guilty and spiritually dead by nature because of sin; unable to get close to God. Rom.5:12 tells us: "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: a) God created man pure and holy; to his own image (Gn.1:27) b) Man became impure and separated from God by sinning. (Gn.3:17)(John3:16) c) Only God, as the originator of life, could correct this man's sorrowful condition, and He did; in His love and mercy, He bridged the gap by sacrificing His Son on the cross. Sin
Let us think of Washing Machine You(We) are born a dirty rag(Sinful) before God.(Isaiah 64:6) When you repent and accept Jesus as your savior, God put you into His Washer: The Cross. Jesus' Blood : (The detergent), already in the Cross, combine with the Holy Spirit (The Power), and start the cleansing cycle to wash away your sins and restore you to a brand new "Born Again" spiritual creature pleasing to God. (Acts 22:16) Only after this process, God will place you in His very special heavenly storage place on this earth: His Church You: The dirty Rag: Jesus: The Way Jesus' Blood: The Detergent The Truth You: a new creature The Church Baptism The Holy Spirit: The Power Proverbs 3:15 says: "She is of more value than jewels, and nothing for which you may have a desire is fair in comparison with her." God's salvation is a multifold marvelous miraculous experience: a) It not only rescues you from the curse of death and eternal suffering in hell but, You can also: b) call on Him any time: "Call unto me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which *you don't know.“ ( Jer. 33:3) c) You have God's love, peace and com- panionship dwelling in you. (John 14:23)
Beside all, God's Salvation also gives you infallible and beautiful others promises of eternal wonders. He says: "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (1Corinthians 2:9) These, and so many others God's promises for those that obtain His Salvation, are the source of satisfaction and fulfillment for living this life (2 Peter 1:4) HOW TO OBTAIN IT?... Very Simple Romans 10:9 tells that “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." A little sincere prayer like this will do it: (it will only work if it's sincere) "Father God, I sincerely repent of all of my sins, accept Jesus as my Lord and savior and promise to dedicate my life to you; Thank you for your grace and pardon. In Jesus name, Amen. Does It Works? God is telling you: "Come and see" and "you shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:13)(John 1:46)
