He answered, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" Luke 10:27

Am I Saved?

There’s a lot of people in today’s society who don’t know if they are saved or not and when asked they have to think about it for a minute. Why is that? Why do people hesitate when asked about their salvation? Is it really something we should have to ponder about? The answer is plainly written in the bible. The perfect place to look for the answer to salvation is in Romans 10:9-10:

That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

See it clearly tells you what you have to do to be saved. Salvation is a gift that is free to all to receive. It isn’t a gift given only to the “do gooders”. It’s free to receive for every person. There is nothing you have done that can keep you from receiving salvation, so stop believing the lies of the enemy. God loves you in spite of your sins and He wants ALL of His children to have a life with Him in Heaven after this life. A life of endless happiness, joy like we have never known, a perfect painless, disease free eternity so even if you haven’t always made the best choices in your life you still have the right to salvation. Isn’t that wonderful? God loved us so much that He gave up His only begotten son so that we have the right to be with Him in Heaven after this life. What an amazing gift. We should ALL receive this gift because it was purposely and perfectly designed for us to have. If you haven’t received it what are you waiting for? Haven’t you experience enough in this life to want the very best life eternally? I know I have and I’m thankful for my salvation. People need to stop thinking that they are not worthy because of how you may be living or have lived. If God decided to give us salvation based only on our sins none of us would be good enough to receive it. The only way we are good enough is through Jesus so I encourage you today to ask God to help you turn from your sinful ways and confess that Jesus is Lord, believe it in your heart that He was raised from the dead so that you will receive the awesome gift of salvation intended for you through the blood of the lamb! Be blessed, stay encourage and know that God loves YOU!

Let There Be No Compromise When It Comes To Your Salvation

It’s hard being single. I use to find myself feeling lonely. Feeling is if I needed someone to fill a void in my life but as I grew closer to God that all changed. He replaced that loneliness with JOY. It reminds me of that song we use to sing in our youth choir as a child, ‘Have A Little Talk With Jesus’. I quickly found out the more I talked to Him the better I felt. I know now that through the failed relationships in the past they all had the same common mistake; God was not in them. I knew I never truly was happy but I continued to try to pursue them knowing something was wrong. Praise God for wisdom through failed attempts though…HALLELUJAH!! It took me many years and a lot of prayers to understand why my relationships were failing. So what I’m getting at is; no child of God deserves to be with someone who is not encouraging him or her to Christ. If a man or woman will not pray with you, worship with you or knowledge God with you what are you gaining from him or her? A relationship without God as the foundation is deemed to fail. You can not change the heart of any man or woman. Yes, we can try to encourage them but it’s up to them to put in the work to become the man or woman God created them to be. So if you are diligently seeking God’s will and your significant other has no intention of seeking him, what do you think you will gain from this relationship? A life of uncomfortable moments. Times when you not only doubt yourself but doubt God’s existence and we don’t want to take steps backwards. We want to move forward in faith. So, if he or she will not willingly chose Jesus to reign over their lives you need to re-exam this so call ‘love of your life’. He or she is not worth your salvation that Jesus freely gave to us at the cross!! We should refuse to compromise our salvation for anyone and trust in the Lord and His timing for our future spouse!!
