WHY SHOULD WE BE SAVED?
So that we will reach God our Father through Christ Jesus and receive eternal life. In the book of St. John Chapter 17 verse 3, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent”
The term “saved” is generally used amongst born-again Christians. The meaning of this word, according to the Bible is being made whole in your spirit , soul and body. Paul the apostle writes in his epistle to the Theselonians (First Book) Chapter 5 verse 23 “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
The sanctification of the whole spirit, soul and body, is done through the Blood of Jesus Christ. As is stated by Jesus in the Gospels, “I am the way, the truth and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
I would encourage you to immediately obey God’s plan of Salvation, by accepting the Lord Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour. It is very simple – With a repentant and understanding heart, I would urge you to say the sinners prayer, (which is provided in this same section). This will lead you to live a life of peace and joy on this earth. You have also received eternal life and are ready for your entry into heaven. Remember, to walk according to the Word of God which is an instruction on how to life your life on this earth.
WHAT IS SALVATION?
Salvation in the Greek language is SOZO, which means deliverance, healing, safety, preservation, soundness. Or in other words completeness in all areas of your life. Or in other words completeness in all areas of your life according to Hebrews 10:14″.For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified”
The First book of John, chapter 3, verse 8 declares “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”
God’s plan is that a person on this earth should live a totally delivered life, with divine health, divine protection, preserved in Christ Jesus , and should have soundness. This is why Jesus came.
PRAYER FOR SALVATION
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. Your Word says, “Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21). I am calling on You. According to Romans 10:9-10: “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.” I do that now. I believe the Lord Jesus is the Son of God. He came to this earth. He died for me on the cross. He was buried. And on the third day He rose again and is seated at the right hand of the Father. I believe this with all my heart. Forgive my sins, wash me with the Blood of Jesus. Now I am washed and cleansed from my sins. I pray and ask Jesus to come into my heart and be Lord over my life.
