Gracious Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, thank you for the great blessing of salvation which gives me a home in heaven eternally. In John 3:15 Jesus said “that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

It has been a huge blessing and complete change for me when You saved me and did for me what You promised Israel in the Old Testament in Ezekiel 36:27a. “I will put My Spirit within you.” The indwelling of the Spirit has allowed me to have the Holy Spirit as my helper, guide in all truth, and a source of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, self control, wisdom, and power.

It is such a joy to see the effect that the power of Your Word has on my life. It has given me instruction on how to be saved and now, if I allow it, it will sanctify, instruct, and direct every phase of my life until I enter Heaven’s doors. Psalm 119:105Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Thank You that as a child of Yours, I can come to the place where all answers can be found. Hebrews 4:16Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and grace to help in time of need.” Direct me to continually incorporate Your Word in all situations and rely on it for all power.

I give thanks and praise for all Your attributes expressed in the Bible. I am specifically grateful for the following characteristics described by Your Names: the Lord my provider, the Lord my healer, the Lord my banner, the Lord my shepherd, the Lord my peace, the Lord my righteousness, and the Lord my sanctifier.

In Jesus’ Name, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for who You are and for what You do for me. Amen.

God’s Gift to Mankind

We have had many new followers since the start of our blog. Therefore, we are posting the plan of salvation again. The prayer of salvation is the first step required to having God hear all other prayers.

______________________

Welcome to the “Salvation” page. The decision you make about the following information is the most important decision you will ever make in your life.

The Bible tells us:

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

Fortunately for us, God has provided the answer to our sin:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”‘ John 14:6

By sending His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross, God has provided a way for us to have a relationship with Him. A relationship with God is our only way off the path of destruction and onto the path of righteousness that leads to Heaven. This relationship allows us to have the joy of the Lord in our hearts in this life “…for the joy of the LORD is your strength” Nehemiah 8:10.

In order to receive God’s grace, You must do what He instructs in Acts 16:31 “So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved…”

If you desire to become a child of God, pray a prayer similar to this one with faith in the truth of what God’s Word teaches about salvation:

Lord Jesus, I invite You to come into my heart. I recognize that I am a sinner, incapable of saving myself. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and rose again. I choose now to follow and obey You as the Lord of my life and to turn away from my sin. I place my trust in You as my only Savior and my only way to salvation and I ask You to forgive me of my sins. Thank you, Jesus, for coming into my life and making me new. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” John 1:12

“He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.” 1 John 5:12-13

According to God’s Word, you are now a Christian and a believer. To grow as God’s child, start by reading the Bible (begin with the book of John). Develop your personal prayer life and seek out fellowship with other believers in a Bible-teaching church.

May the Lord bless you as you go forward in your walk with Him.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”  2 Corinthians 5:17
