Prayer of Salvation
You need to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life is the best and most important decision you will ever make.
What is Salvation?
Salvation is God’s love for you. Salvation means to be redeemed or delivered from sin and its punishment of death and set free to know, to love and to serve God our heavenly Father. Salvation is knowing that you have everlasting life with God (NOT with Satan, the devil, the evil one). For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus) that whoever believes in Him shall have eternal life John 3:16. Salvation is having a right to all the promises and benefits of God right now in our daily lives.
The part of Salvation that I personally appreciate all day every day is the Holy Spirit living within me. The Holy Spirit is the very Spirit of God that leads, guides, and directs us. There is nothing like the Indwelling Spirit of God, absolutely nothing. He, the Holy Spirit, is your proof your official seal that you belong to God. Jesus Christ is the Only way to Salvation. There is One God (Father, Son, Holy Ghost).
Salvation is a free gift from God our heavenly Father. God gives us salvation based on what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross. We accept and receive it by believing. Our Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for us, bearing in His own body the punishment of God for our sin. God’s justice was paid in full with the Lord’s sacrifice. Those who accept, receive and believe are saved from the wrath of God our heavenly Father.
Romans 10: 9-10 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12 NKJV).
Why Do I Need to Be Saved?
Well, you need to be Saved because there is a penalty for sin. The Bible (The Truth, the foundation of our Faith) tells us that the penalty for sin is death. Sin separated us from God but Jesus came to reconcile us back to God. Through Jesus we become the righteousness of God. No longer sinners but the redeemed of the Lord. God’s righteous Ones.
The penalty was paid, that’s right Jesus paid the sin debt when he hung, bled and died on the cross and arose. He was our substitute. Thank you Jesus for your love and sacrifice. We thank you, we praise you, we worship you and we bless your name.
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God; …” (Romans 3:23 KJV).
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23 KJV).
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8 NKJV).
“And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27 NKJV).
God is a loving Father and He doesn’t want anyone to be lost. God loves you so much and His love is free. All he wants is your yes in your heart. God is love. Will you receive His free love invitation to you today? Wink, wink: “Now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2 NKJV).
Joy joy joy joy joy joy joy! I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over “one” sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance. You are that “One”!
What About the Bible
The Bible is a Love story from God to His creation, us. The Bible is a Book of Prophecy both historical and futuristic in its content. The Bible is a book of life. There are 66 books in the Bible, 39 Old Testament books and 27 New Testament books. There are many writers of the books of the Bible, however there is One Author, the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God, Holy Spirit inspired people to write the Scripture in the Bible.
The Bible is God’s story to humanity. We receive the truths of the Bible by Faith. But it is impossible to please God without faith Hebrews 11:6. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God Ephesians 2:8.
What I love about the Bible is that it answers humanities deep questions. The Biblical account of creation based on Scripture. No one else dares to claim they created and continually sustains the world except for the One who really created it.
The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein. Psalm 24:1. God’s Word is so delicious that I can hardly contain myself when I start thinking about it. The words are alive, living and true. I can only speak for myself in that I have tried Scripture and found it to be true.
You know, the Bible is really an invitation to love. I think of it as everything I need right at my fingertips. I knew the Bible, the Word of God whether in hardcopy or online is living communication from God to us; when my SUV erupted in flames within seconds of me getting out unharmed.
My Bible was on the front seat I saw the orange flames that completely filled my Dodge Durango. All I could see is fire throughout it. The fire fighter asked me if I had anything of value in it, I said yes my Bible is on the front seat. He said, Oh dear I’m so sorry but it’s completely destroyed you see your whole car is engulfed in flames everything is gone. When they extinguished the fire he escorted me over to look inside.
I pointed and said my Bible was sitting right on the front seat. He said, go ahead and look in but I assure you anything inside is gone. I peeked inside, and I said in amazement, “There it is! There is my Bible, Untouched”. We all looked in utter amazement. It was untouched. Not even the pages from a notebook I had inside it was touched. It smelled like smoke and the pages were damp but it dried and eventually even the smell of smoke left. Hallelujah!!!!!
Speaking on the Bible and the Holy Spirit as problem solver. Do you know how it feels when you have a problem that really bothers you, I mean you need answers, help, comfort, direction. And while you ponder how big this problem is and how impossible it seems, the Holy Spirit directs you (turn to page such and such and read the 3rd line down). When you do, it’s a jaw dropping moment of the reality of the Living Word of God to you. It has been called a Rhema Word.
I didn’t intend for this to be so long but I’m very passionate about the Holy Bible and Scripture as our foundational truth. I want everyone to receive God’s love and His great love letter, the Bible. Matthew 24:34-35 Jesus says, 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
If you are ready, to receive this free gift, pray this prayer:
