First I want to say that I am so excited that you are taking the time to read this blog about salvation! I know some of the things that you have read on this blog site may seem foreign to you, because you do not have a personal relationship with Christ. You may be thinking…”How can I get to know this Jesus Christ that these stories speak of,” or you can be thinking “Why should I get to know this Jesus Christ that I am hearing about?”
The only thing I can say to that, is this:
We all need a savior! There is not one good person on this earth…NO NOT ONE. However, if you think that you are a good person, the next thing you should ponder is, “Am I good enough to go to heaven?”
So lets see…answer these questions for me;
1. Have you ever stolen anything?
2. Have you ever told a lie?
3. Have you ever lusted after someone?
Although these are just a few questions to the “are you a good person quiz that can be found at http://www.wayofthemaster.com/goodperson.shtml ” surly you have answered yes to one of them if not all of these questions.
Now the reason why I wanted you to take this test was not to make you feel bad or condemn you, however I wanted to show you that again NO MAN IS PERFECT and this is why we need a savior. See there is nothing you can do to save yourself, so Christ paid our debt when he died on the cross for our sins. Think about it like this…
We all deserve to go to hell for something we have done in our life; however the only reason we will not experience that (for those who except this free gift of salvation) is because a perfect King…Jesus Christ, came and he died for our sins, taking our place on that cross.
Yes Yes Yes…
He Saved Us…
Soooooo, this is why I think it would be really dope to get to know this King that we speak of. We really do owe him our life, but the only thing he require of us is to except his free gift of salvation. There is no good works we can do to get to heaven.
If you are still there and you are saying okay how do I except this free gift, I want to encourage you to take a look at these verses. If you don’t have a bible…google them 🙂 While reading them, really allow your heart to be open to what you are reading. Then if you feel that this is something you are ready to do… The bible commands us to repent, turn from our sinful ways, and ask God to forgive us for our sins… and I promise you God will take it from there!
YOU CAN ONLY BE SAVED BY FAITH IN JESUS
Now I will close by quoting an awesome blog I found online about salvation that you can check out at cafemom.com,
“There are no works such as baptism, church membership, sacraments, walking ‘clean’, wearing the right clothes, talking the right talk, giving money or thinking clean that will open the door of heaven.”
