There is one person in this life that I so dearly want people to discover above all else. His name is Jesus. There is no one like Him. He is our God and Lord of all creation. Through Him, there is salvation in heaven. No one has ever sinned to much as to not be forgiven by Him. His mercy is for all. On the cross, Jesus died for my sins, your sins, and everyone else in this world. To accept this sacrifice it only takes a humble heart. When a person decides that today is the day for salvation and comes unto Him in repentance, there is much rejoicing. As pride lifts, Jesus is able to come into a person’s life and transform them through His blood. As people pray and confess their sins openly, they are allowing the Lord to save them. It is promised 1“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.” And through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, He offers mercy freely to those that trust in Him. Will you trust in Jesus, for salvation, today?
There are many things in this life that people trust in but all these things are temporary and lead to destruction, apart from Jesus. The Lord God desires that we are saved and no longer walk in darkness. Many things appear good in this life but only Jesus has the power to save. Let it be known 2“unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth” we are saved. 2“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” I pray that You look to Jesus for salvation. No longer live a life, where your belief is in words alone, but have true faith that trusts in Jesus. Belief is something we can all say we have but 3“faith without works is dead”. Know that 3“the devils also believe, and tremble.” A belief without action does nothing to help us. May you decide today to come to Jesus and learn of Him. Read the Bible daily and pray often. Through this, you will know what path is right and allow the Lord to help you.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I believe in You. I know that You are my Savior and Lord of all. Only You have the power to take away my sins. Please forgive me. I confess that I am a sinner and have need of Your mercy. Take away the bondage of sin from my life. Cut down the chains that have me bound. Break me free Lord. Lead me away from the lusts of this world and onto Your path. I no longer wish to live apart from Your love. Fill me with Your peace and Your understanding. Help me know how to fight against temptation and truly win the battle. Do help me come out on top, even when it is hard. I need You, Lord, to fight the battle with me. I trust that You can do all things in my life. With You by my side, I am able to come out victorious. For this reason, I give You my life. Do with it as You please. Take my wicked heart and help me live in Your righteousness. I need You. I love You. Amen.
Let us read the Bible:

1Romans 10:9-13 (KJV)
9 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.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

2Acts 4:1-13 (KJV)
1 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,
2 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
3 And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.
4 Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.
5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,
6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.
7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?
8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
3James 2:14-20 (KJV)
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
