How Do We Receive God's Salvation?
Salvation is God’s gift to mankind, pure and simple. God gives us Salvation on the basis of what Jesus Christ has done for us; this welcomes us into His Kingdom. We receive it by believing and accepting this finished work.
“…So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.” John 19:28-30 (NKJV)
“…And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission [forgiveness].” Hebrews 9:16-22 (NKJV)
“…Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption…” Hebrews 9:11-15 (NKJV)JESUS CHRIST’S FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS BRINGS GOD’S SALVATION TO ALL WHO WANTS IT!
He came to the earth and lived the life of perfect obedience before God. That perfect obedience was put into our accounts and registered to our names. So we never need fear being morally overdrawn on that day when we will stand in His holy presence. Our accounts are filled with the perfect obedience of Jesus Christ. Jesus died on the cross for us, bearing in His own body just punishment of God for our sin. God’s justice was satisfied with Jesus’ sacrifice. Therefore those who believe and accept this inherit God’s salvation.What is the greatest miracle?
The greatest miracle is not physical but spiritual. It is when a lost soul comes to know the glorious saving grace and forgiveness of God’s Son, Jesus Christ. The Lord loves and cares about the things that concern you. He loved you so much that He gave His life by dying on the cross.
The Bible clearly states that everyone has sinned.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” -Romans 3:23 (NKJV)
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” -Romans 6:23 (NKJV)
Even though we deserved death, but God provided a way for the death penalty for sin to be placed upon the only ONE in the whole universe who could take your place and mine –that person is Jesus Christ the Son of God. How does this happen?
The exchange takes place the moment one accept Jesus Christ into their heart. Just as it is written:
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” -Romans 10:9-10 (NKJV)
Anyone who sincerely prayed, asking God to forgive and cleanse them from sin, He has forgiven them of every wrongdoing they have ever committed in the past. God will not remember the sins of yesterday against you. They are eternally gone.
If you have not experience His salvation and forgiveness of sin, today is your golden opportunity to welcome Him into your heart.
“For the scripture says, ‘whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. And whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:11-13 (NKJV)
