INHERITING ETERNAL LIFE
So far this week we have been discussing Salvation and entering into heaven. Here are some wisdom quotes for your thoughts.
- Salvation is not a reward for righteousness but it is a gift for the guilty.
- Salvation is not rooted in the merit of men but it is rooted in the mercy of God.
- Salvation is not in the goodness of men but in the gracefulness of God.
These point to the same reasoning that you are not saved because you are special, or have been in church all your life, or because you donate to a charity. Salvation is a gift of grace!
Being saved is not a right but a privilege. You can never earn salvation by following a set of rules and laws. It comes by your willingness to accept that you are not perfect and submit yourself to the mercy of Jesus Christ.
Hear Apostle Paul: “Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.” (Galatians 2:16, NLT)
Today, wherever you are, I want you to make the decision and say a salvation prayer with me.
Dear Lord, I thank you for sending your Son to die for me and take away my sins. Today I ask you into my heart, to be my Lord and personal Saviour. From this day, I am yours, now and forever more, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
