To receive salvation in Christ is to believe, while showing fruits. This can also be through repentance and good works that God does through us.
Ephesians 2:1-5 (KJV)
1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
What we do for salvation, on our own terms, without God’s help, is only filthy rags in the sight of God.
What will save us in this life is our faith in Jesus Christ. It is this faith that compels us to forsake what is evil and come unto Him for a change of heart.
After our hearts are cleansed and washed clean, it is not a time to back down. This prayer that you made was a great experience and is the first steps to being led by Christ.
We by saved by grace, through faith, and not of our own good works, “lest any man should boast.” It is so important that we humble ourselves before God.
The Lord can surely breathe new life into our lost souls. Our belief in Him, can move mountains in our lives.
God can see the goodness in our lives. Especially if we are being led by Him. If anything good has come, it is from His matchless love.
Today, I saw this homeless man standing on this street corner with a sign. Every car was just passing him by, even those that were stopped didn’t care for his needs.
It is our faith in Christ that changes our lives. Through the grace of God we have hope for a better day. Our lives are changed and the veil is removed from our eyes.
Oh Lord, I praise your Name above all Names. Holy, holy is your Name. You stand supreme. Mighty are your works. Worthy is the lamb who died for all mankind.
Give your whole heart to Jesus. Give up a life of sin. Let Jesus change you from within. Let Him heal your heart. That we can be made alive in Him.
