Salvation

















 

The Bible say’s in Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”.  I use to have so many questions  about Gods existence and life itself. I was on spiritual quest for the truth; Why am I here? I soon discovered, the truth I was looking for was not in a self-help book or in attending psychology class 101. It was found by seeking the One who created me. It is God's desire to be known by those who seek Him with a pure heart. We all need to be honest about our present condition. Do you need a Savior? Yes you do! Jesus Christ died that you might have life in its fullness (John 10:10).

You where created to have a relationship with the Heavenly Father. He is waiting on your response. He has made a way for you to respond to His love. When God designed us, He breathed in us the breath (spirit) of life (Genesis 2:7). Your spirit man needs to be awakened and needs to be born again from its sinful condition. Proverbs 20:27(a) says; “The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord”. This is where communion with God takes place.

Jesus said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.' The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit," John 3:5-8. What Christ was saying is you cannot enter into a relationship with Father God through natural means. Being born again takes place when your spirit man is awakened from its dead state, because the flesh is corrupt and in control. “That which is flesh is flesh, that which is spirit is spirit” (verse 6). Flesh cannot communicate or relate to God. One must be united with Father God by the born again spirit. In John 4:24 “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." Jesus also conveyed in John 3:12 “If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? Do you want to understand heavenly things? “You must be born again”.  Being born again by the spirit will enable and empower you to enjoy and understand the Word of God. The Word of God is inspired. It is “Spirit and Life”(John 6:63) and “bread from Heaven” (John 6:32). God’s Word reveals spiritual life and nurtures your whole being (spirit, soul & body). It also reveals your purpose in life.

So here is the conclusion, if God by His Spirit is convicting you about your sinful life. Do not hesitate. He has connected with you by the Holy Spirit, “No one can come to the Father unless the Spirit draws him” (John 6:44). Father God loves you and desires to have a relationship with you. I am a life who as been transformed (read testimony on Staff page). It is a glorious event. The bible says, “heaven and all the angels rejoice when a sinner repents” (Luke 15:10). Why not become a born again child of God right now? Let me lead you in a prayer of salvation, repeat out loud this powerful prayer to ask Jesus Christ to be both your Lord & Savior.

Prayer for Salvation
Dear Heavenly Father, You have called me to a place of total surrender. I realize that I am a sinner in need of a Savior.
I believe that Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His blood at Calvary’s Cross, He died for my sins, and rose again on the third day. He is now is at The Fathers right hand reigning in Glory.
I am truly sorry for the sins I have committed against You, and therefore, I am willing to repent (turn away from my sins).
Have mercy on me, a sinner. Cleanse me, and forgive me of my sins as I forgive anyone who has ever sinned against me.

I truly desire to serve You, Lord Jesus. Starting from now, I pray that You would help me to hear Your still small voice.
Heavenly Father, I desire to be led by Your Holy Spirit so I can faithfully follow You and obey all of Your commandments.
I ask for the strength to love You more than anything else so I won't fall back into my old ways.
I also ask You to bring genuine believers into my life who will encourage me to live for You and help me stay accountable.

Heavenly Father, I am truly grateful for Your grace which has led me to repentance and has saved me from my sins.
By the indwelling of Your Holy Spirit, I now have the power to overcome all sin which before so easily entangled me.
Lord Jesus, please transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to You alone and not to myself.

Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my life. With my heart, I believe that God the Father raised His Son Jesus from the dead. This very moment I acknowledge that Jesus Christ is my Lord & my Savior and according to His Word, right now I am born again.
Thank You, Jesus, for coming into my life and hearing my prayer. I ask all of this in the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

It is now important that you ask the Holy Spirit to lead you to a Church  (Pastor & Staff) that will mentor & disciple you (Eph. 4:11-13). The Heavenly Father is desiring for you to be involved with other believers so the Gospel will be preached in your City and also be preached to the Nations (Matt. 28:18-20).
