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!
