Accepting Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Savior
When Following God’s Redemptive Plan of Salvation
- Confess Christ With Your Mouth (Romans 10:9), If you declare with your mouth, ” Jesus is Lord, ” and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
- Ask God to forgive us (John 1:9), If we confess our sins. He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
According to Isaiah 26:3 – You’ll keep him in perfect peace, the one whose mind is stayed on You since he trusts in You. The Hebrew word for “stayed” is to lean or rest on. So, we depend on the Lord Jesus Christ. Also, we rest in Him. Focusing our minds and hearts on His promises forever.
Besides, we need to trust that Jesus can uphold us, and we should show that trust by obeying Him. As we focus our lives on following, obeying, and pleasing the Lord Jesus, we’ll experience the perfect peace, which He promised us.
Acknowledge Jesus Into Your Life
Prayer Of Salvation
Dear God, I know and believe that You sent Your only beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to take an excruciating death on the cross. I believe in You that I can be forgiven of my sins and be redeemed because His innocent blood was shed for me.
I believe that it is only through His death on the cross and resurrection that I can be made right with You.
Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner and deeply in need of a Saviour. I know that Jesus Christ was the sinless sacrifice who laid His life on the cross for my sins. I believe that He is the only one who died for me.
Dear God, thank You for loving me so much that You sent Your only, sinless Son to become a Man and offered Him as the perfect sacrifice for my sins and that of the world. Thank You for loving and for dying for me, Lord Jesus Christ. Help me to live a life that will honor You in thought, word, and deed.
Almighty God, I repent of all my sins, and I turn to Christ. I pray that You keep me holy and ready for You as I live to serve You. I pray this in Jesus Christ, my Saviour,
That is a prayer to take you to God through the Lord Jesus Christ. You are saved. All you need is to live a life that pleases God—doing the will of God.
Congratulations My Brothers And Sisters In Christ
Question: “What is salvation? What is the Christian doctrine of salvation?”
Answer: Salvation is deliverance from danger or suffering. To save is to deliver or protect. The word carries the idea of victory, health, or preservation. Sometimes, the Bible uses the words saved or salvation to refer to temporal, physical deliverance, such as Paul’s deliverance from prison (Philippians 1:19).
More often, the word “salvation” concerns an eternal, spiritual deliverance. When Paul told the Philippian jailer what he must do to be saved, he was referring to the jailer’s eternal destiny (Acts 16:30-31). Jesus equated being saved with entering the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:24-25).
What are we saved from? In the Christian doctrine of salvation, we are saved from “wrath,” that is, from God’s judgment of sin (Romans 5:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:9). Our sin has separated us from God, and the consequence of sin is death (Romans 6:23). Biblical salvation refers to our deliverance from the consequence of sin and therefore involves the removal of sin.
Who does the saving? Only God can remove sin and deliver us from sin’s penalty (2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 3:5).
How does God save? In the Christian doctrine of salvation, God has rescued us through Christ (John 3:17). Specifically, it was Jesus’ death on the cross and subsequent resurrection that achieved our salvation (Romans 5:10; Ephesians 1:7). Scripture is clear that salvation is the gracious, undeserved gift of God (Ephesians 2:5, 8) and is only available through faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12).
How do we receive salvation? We are saved by faith. First, we must hear the gospel—the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection (Ephesians 1:13). Then, we must believe—fully trust the Lord Jesus (Romans 1:16). This involves repentance, a changing of mind about sin and Christ (Acts 3:19), and calling on the name of the Lord (Romans 10:9-10, 13).
A definition of the Christian doctrine of salvation would be “The deliverance, by the grace of God, from eternal punishment for sin which is granted to those who accept by faith God’s conditions of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus.” Salvation is available in Jesus alone (John 14:6; Acts 4:12) and is dependent on God alone for provision, assurance, and security.
Now is the time to get rooted in a good bible believing church, that is exercising in the Gospel, and does not try to tickle your ear with the ways of the World. Remember when you see a Brother or Sister in Christ fall short, simply pray for them, and do not judge them, as we still fall short, however with our newly born-again spirit we now have a battle plan against Sin and pain. Please remember God does not look for extravagant great-sounding prayer, he looks for our heartfelt prayer.
One of the problems with our faith is many believe that a Christian should be some sort of perfect person, so when they see us fall short, in their eyes we are hypocrites. This is just another reason we need to be as upright and righteous in the world’s eyes. on the contrary, this does not mean we cannot have fun, as I have more joy now than ever in my life, the true joy that is meant for a believer.
Conclusion, What Do We Do?
A Prayer Of Devotion To Follow The Lord Jesus Christ,
Dear Father, My Lord, and my Redeemer, you are everlasting. Nothing compares to you Lord my God. As Job admitted that my Redeemer would rise in the resurrection and stand on the earth, I rejoice that even at the center of my darkest hour, regardless of what happens to me in these earthly circumstances, I will trust your resurrection forever. I know with certainty that Jesus you have already redeemed me. Hallelujah to the Lord Jesus Christ! I am grateful that I will trust my Redeemer with every part of my life, and that my heart will always yearn within me to know and love Him more.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray and believe. Amen.
Confess Christ With Your Mouth And Mean It In Your Heart=Salvation
“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.” 1 John 5:13
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy, he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.” 1 Peter 1:3-4
“For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. In the same way, the Spirit helps us with our weaknesses. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.” Romans 8:24-30
God be with you my Brother and Sisters in Christ, Your Brothers in Christ, Jack, and Collins
