Salvation

All that God requires of us is to call upon Him. The offer is free.

Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Salvation is being saved from the righteous judgment of God upon the sinner. Our sin separates us from God, and the consequence of sin is death. The good news is that God has rescued us and given us forgiveness through Christ Jesus. Jesus' death on the cross and resurrection has achieved our Salvation. Salvation is the gracious, underserved and unearned gift of God that is available to whosoever will put their faith in Christ Jesus. The deliverance from eternal punishment and judgment from sin is given freely to those who believe on the Jesus as Lord and Savior, and accept His gift of righteousness.

Salvation has a rich meaning which includes: completeness, peace, health, preservation, safety, fullness, rest, prosperity, and wholeness.

Jesus was God in the flesh:

John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

We are saved by putting faith in Christ Jesus:

God made Him [Jesus] who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him (2 Corinthians 5:21). For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified (Hebrews 10:14). And not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption (Hebrews 9:12) For Jesus said, this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26:28). Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin (Romans 4:8). Righteousness is not right behavior but a person, Jesus. (1 Corinthians 1:30). Through His one sacrifice we have become the righteousness of God in Him. This means, we stand before God beloved, Holy, and beyond reproach (Colossians 1:22). We stand as beloved children, clothed in the perfection of Christ (Romans 8:15).

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). Nevertheless, knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the Law; since by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified (Galatians 2:16). Through Him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law (Acts 13:39).

At the cross Jesus made atonement for us so that we can enjoy all His benefits- pardons all our iniquities, heals all our diseases; redeems our life from the pit, crowns us with lovingkindness and compassion; satisfies our years with good things, so that our youth is renewed like the eagle (Psalm 103: 2-5). The Lord Jesus redeemed us from sickness and disease just as He redeemed us from sin. Many have been taught that forgiveness is the sum of Salvation. Forgiveness is a part of it but there is so much more. We were also healed by the stripes of Jesus. It is not God's will for us to be sick or poor any more than is it His will for us to be in sin.

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bore our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

The ministry of Jesus clearly reveals to us that God is able and willing to heal all people who come to Him, acknowledging His body was broken for our healing. Many have been deceived, thinking that God has allowed them to be sick or that He’s the source of their sickness. The scripture clearly tells us, the devil is the one who comes to kill, steal and destroy. The devil is the one that is oppressing man with sickness and disease. God wills for us to be healed! God demonstrated His will by sending Jesus to the cross to purchase our healing- spirit, soul, and body.

Luke 13:16 And this woman, a daughter of Abraham as she is, whom Satan has bound for eighteen long years, should she not have been released from this bond on the Sabbath day?

Today, the choice is yours. Will you believe on the Lord Jesus and receive the peace, forgiveness, healing, and wholeness? God has already made His choice when He sent His Beloved Son Jesus to purchase your Salvation with his precious blood.

Prayer of Salvation:

Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of Your Son Jesus Christ. You said in Your Word that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Father, I am calling on Jesus right now. I believe Jesus came in the flesh. I believe He died on the cross for my sins. I believe He was raised from the dead on the third day, and He's alive. Lord Jesus, I am asking You to come into my heart. I surrender myself totally and completely to You. Thank you for taking my place, paying my sin debt and bearing my judgment. Thank you for becoming the curse for me, so that I can be healed. Heavenly Father, by faith, I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord, my righteousness and healer; I dedicate my life to follow Him.
