Six Years Saved Today
Today marks six years I’ve been saved. All glory to God for saving me by his grace on Thursday, September 8, 2011 when I, a hell deserving sinner, realized that I had come short of the glory of God and realized that the only way I could go to Heaven was by placing my faith and trust in the shed blood of Jesus on Calvary’s Cross to wipe away my sins and receive a new life in Him.
If you are not saved today , friend, I pray that you would do as I did some six years ago and ask the Lord to save you at this very moment.
If you are serious about this decision, I encourage you to follow the steps below so you may know how to be saved:
The reason why you have arrived at this page is that you did not feel confident that you would go to Heaven if you were to die right now. However, the Bible assures us that there is a Way to get to Heaven, and it is the only Way to Heaven.
First, you must understand that God loves sinners. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” God loves you and he does not want you to perish, He wants you to have everlasting life in His Glorious Kingdom.
Second, you must understand that no one is worthy. Without the saving blood of Jesus Christ, no one is worthy to be called “righteous”. Romans 3:10 reads, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”
Third, you must understand that all have sinned. We are all born with a sinful nature because of the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden. All of us have sinned against God. This also means that all of us need salvation. Romans 3:23 reads, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
Fourth, you must understand that the penalty of sin is death in Hell. If you do not accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior from your sins, you have a future in Hell. Romans 6:23 reads, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Salvation is a gift and if we accept it, we’ll have eternal life in Heaven, not in Hell.
Fifth, you must understand that Jesus died for all. Romans 5:8 reads, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” While we were still sinners in a dark and cruel world, Christ died for all of us because He loved us. The punishments for sin reflect God’s just and holy judgment, whereas His gift of salvation commends his love for us.
Sixth, you must understand that Jesus is the only Way to Heaven. Acts 4:12 reads, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Jesus himself says in John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” The only way to Heaven and having a personal relationship with the One who created you is through Christ Jesus.
Seventh, you must understand that God wants you to know for sure that you’re saved. 1 John 5:13 reads, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”
Eighth, you must confess and believe in order to be truly saved. The Bible says in Romans 10:9-10, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead: thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Finally, call on Jesus to be saved! Romans 10:13 reads, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Once you’ve confessed in your mouth and believed in your heart, you’re saved forever! Praise God!
