Saved by Grace - Born Again
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Romans 10:9-10
This is the Good News we should all be talking about and spreading to others. This message is our way of leading others to Christ before it is too late. We have been saved with the Amazing Grace from God through His Son Jesus Christ.
Before Jesus became our ultimate sacrifice many had to present an animal as a burnt offering. It had to be a male with no defects. The Lord would accept it's death in your place to purify you and make you right with God. There were procedures for grain offerings, Peace offerings, sin offerings, and guilt offerings. Jesus was without spot or blemish and never sinned the only One who become our ultimate sacrifice.
God sacrificed His only begotten Son to die for us so that we may live. As sinners we are forgiven and once we are saved we will have eternal life. Do you really understand that this is a free gift for all of us. It can never be earned. Some people think if we are good and do good deeds we will enter heaven. That is not how it works! We can only be saved through believing in Jesus and the fact that God raised Him from the dead three days later.
Some of you might question how can you believe in something you cannot see. It is called faith! Faith is the confidence in what we hope for and the assurance that the Lord is working, even though we cannot see it. This is why we walk by faith not by sight.
Let me put it this way. The air you breathe is invisible yet, you believe you are breathing in oxygen to stay alive. Here are some other examples for all you social media fanatics. Wi-fi, blue tooth, and cell phone signals cannot be seen, but you depend on them daily.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior and would like to know for sure that you will never die, but have eternal life will you please read this prayer out loud confessing with your tongue and believing in your heart?
Dear Lord, Jesus
I believe that God sent you to die for me so that all of my sins will be forgiven. I repent of my my sins. I also believe that you died on the cross and God raised you from the dead three days later so that I will have eternal life. You became a great sacrifice and I ask that you to come into my heart and into my life. Make me a new creation. I want to follow you for the rest of my life. In Jesus name I Pray, Amen.
If you just prayed this prayer for the first time there are angels rejoicing over you right now.
