- HOW TO KNOW JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR -
A salvation prayer, known by many Christians as a 'Sinners Prayer,' is a prayer one would say to repent from sin, ask God for forgiveness, confess belief in Jesus Christ, and accept him as Lord and Savior. Saying a salvation prayer is the first step in your personal relationship with God.
If you believe the Bible offers truth about the way of salvation, but you have not taken the step to become a Christian, it's as simple as praying this prayer. You can pray by yourself, using your own words. There is no special formula. Just pray from your heart to God, and he will save you. If you feel lost and don't know what to pray, here's a salvation prayer that you can follow:
I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don't please you. I have lived my life for myself only. I am sorry, and I repent. I ask You to forgive me.
I believe that You died on the cross for me to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to You now and ask you to take control of my life; I give it to You. From this day forward, help me to live every day for You and in a way that pleases You.
I love you, Lord, and I thank You that I will spend all eternity with You.
If you have just prayed this prayer, congratulations!:))
You have received Christ as your Savior and have made the best decision you will ever make—one that will change your life forever!
For us, jealousy isn't attractive, but for God, it's a holy attribute. God is unhappy when we worship anyone besides Him. Only He deserves our praise.
When reading in the Old Testament, we may not understand why people would bow before idols—surely they didn't think that these objects were living and powerful. But we make a similar mistake, placing too high a value on money, relationships, power, and the like. Though not bad in themselves, such things can become the focus of our worship. That's why the Father is jealous for our heart.
There are two reasons God won't tolerate our misplaced devotion. First, He deserves the glory. And second, there is nothing better for us than His love. Praising Him above all else is actually in our own best interest. Therefore, when our heart doesn't belong solely to Christ, He will use discipline and reminders so we will prioritize Him.
This week, notice where you spend your time and money and what dominates your thoughts. Even if your pursuits seem good on the surface, pray about what might be an idol in your life. Confess any misplaced affection, and ask the Lord for help in making Him the object of your devotion.
- Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for
them that love him.
—1 Corinthians 2:9
At the close of the Bible we encounter these words, “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away.” A new world is coming! Each time we pray in the Lord's Prayer, “Thy kingdom come,” we should remember that that prayer will be answered. Heaven is described as a new creation in which we shall move in new bodies, possessed of new names, singing new songs, living in a new city, by a new form of government, and challenged by new prospects of eternity with social justice for all. The paradise that man lost will be regained, but it will be much more. It will not be the old one repaired, patched up, and made over. When God says, “Behold, I make all things new,” the emphasis is on all things. One day we shall live in a brand-new world. Centuries ago the apostles greeted each other with the word, “Maranatha”—the Lord is coming.
By Evangelist Dr. Billy Graham
-Prayer for the day-
Use me, Savior, to hasten Maranatha, as I tell others that they, too, can be made new through Your divine love.
-Lord Jesus, as You sat looking over Jerusalem, You wept.
Give me the same compassion for those who have not accepted Your remedy and been BORN AGAIN.
-SALVATION IS FOR TODAY,SEEK THE LORD WHILE HE MAY BE FOUND.NO ONE IS PROMISED TOMORROW.
- Bless is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.
"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."
- Abraham Lincoln -
