Salvation is a 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)

 

 

 

 


 

 

Understanding the result of the work of the cross

              Before                                   Sin dealt with                                   After
 

Sin & rebellion

The Blood of Jesus  =

Forgiveness & salvation

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

(Romans 3:23)

 

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ

(Ephesians 2:13)

 

And you....He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses

(Colossians 2:13)

 

GUILTY

SIN FULLY PUNISHED

 =  "My Lord and my God!

   

 John 20:28

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. (Romans 10:9)

   

 

First, read the simple prayer below, and ponder it.

Then if you mean it from your heart pray it aloud. God is listening!

It is a life changing declaration to God that you have been in rebellion to Him, and that your sin has separated you from Him.

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,   Acts 3:19

Repent means to turn around from every sinful and rebellious area of your life.

That includes turning around from being your own god, from being 'lord' of your own life, to acknowledging the One who sacrificed His life willingly for you, as the Lord of your life.

That’s it. Simple, available and instant.

Listen to the sure words on salvation spoken by the Apostle Paul.

.. 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. (Romans 10:9)


Lord Jesus, I acknowledge that I am a sinner

I acknowledge that I have sinned against You in word thought and deed.

But now Lord Jesus I turn away from ALL my sin and my rebellion and I turn to You alone as my Lord, and my Saviour.

I believe that You shed Your precious Blood and died on the cross for me - and that you rose again from the dead - in order that I might be able to come home to Your Father, and now my Father, as a new born child of God.

I thankfully receive my complete forgiveness through Your finished work on the cross, and I ask You to fill me with the Holy Spirit

From this moment on I boast only of You as

"My Lord and my God!"

Now tell someone!  Find a good church!  Enjoy being a child of God!
