Daily Devotional | Are you Saved?

John 3:7 NIV
‘You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’

See it at YouVersion.com:http://bible.us/John3.7.NIV

I am going to ask you the most important question of your life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends on your answer. Are you saved? This is not a question on how good you are or if you belong to a church, but are you saved? Will you go to heaven when you die?
 
Many people don’t know what it means to be saved or what the bible requires in order to be born again. Every step you take towards God, he will take a step towards you. Each step you follow below will lead you closer to eternal life.

 

1.  First, you must admit you are a sinner. “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

2.  Know that God has already provided for your salvation. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

3.  Know that you cannot save yourself. “Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us” (Titus 3:5).

4. Repent of your sins. “Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).

5. Ask Jesus Christ to save you. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13)

6.  Confess by mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’. “If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness: and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9, 10).

You can be saved today and receive eternal life right now, as millions of people worldwide have, when you receive Jesus Christ as your Savior.  Say this prayer by mouth and you will be saved.

“Dear Father in Heaven, I realize that I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins. I am willing to turn away from my sins and lead the life you want me to lead. I now ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart and I receive Him into my life as my personal Savior. I am willing, by God’s grace, to follow and obey Christ as the Lord of my life. Please forgive me for my sins and save me”

Get a bible and read it everyday to get to know Christ better. Pray everyday, join a living word church and get baptized. Fellowship with other believers. Serve. Make up your mind today!

Scripture of the day: Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. ~ John 1:12
