Lord, I pray that people will come to know You, the head of the body of the church. May people come out of the mindset that their religion can save them, but through You, Christ, alone. You are the only way to life eternal in heaven, and people of all Christian religions can know this special truth if they simply read the Bible. Your words are true and faithful and will lead anyone, like You did for me, to the truth. I also once believed that Mormonism was the one true church, but all their false beliefs crashed down on me when I opened up Your Word, in the Bible, and read it like a child. You opened my eyes to see that salvation only comes through You and not a religion. I had believed in a lie for so many years, to think that my faith was better than others. What mattered was that people knew You for salvation and not if a religion is true. Thank You for leading me out of this false church and into Your true church. I was once blinded, but now I see that people in many good Bible believing churches can be saved. Salvation does not depend on a building that we go to, but what You have set apart for us in Your church. You are the head and we, being many, are Your members. Some being more faithful than others, but we all make up a body of believers that just want to live out of our faith. I know that You are my God and nothing else can trump this. I love You Lord. May I always reflect that love for You in the people I am around. Help them see this love through me. My desire is to follow Your example, for it is leads to salvation. I praise You God. I trust in You. Amen.

22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
Jesus is the only way to heaven. Salvation does not come through a church, but through Him alone. Do not be deceived.
There are people that say that salvation only comes by being baptized in their church, but these are all lies. Only Jesus saves!
We as believers in Christ, are the members of His body. Each person has a gift from God, in which the Lord is able to use in His church. Continue Reading
