John 3:16 says: For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. This is the Christian message. Not religion but a personal relationship with Jesus. He is not a dead memory but a living Savior. Romans 10:9,10 tells us: If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved. From Genesis to Revelation the bible is all about Jesus. Sure there are multiple stories along the way but the common thread starting from the fall of man when Adam ate the forbidden fruit , is that God had a backup plan. Adam's poor choice gave lisence to Satan to take over thr earth, but 42 Generations from the first man, Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, ministered for 3 years from age 30-33, was crucified on a cross, rose from the dead 3 days later with ALL POWER in heaven and earth in His hands. And now sits at the right hands of the Father, interceeding on our behalf until he returns for His chosen. If you are unsure of your Salvation today let me tell you what it is not. My grandmother used to say that a person can go down in the baptismal pool a dry devil an get out a wet devil. Water baptism does not save. It is an act of obedience once you have accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Belonging to a church is not salvation. Many sitting in buildings will be left behind when the Lord returns. My husband and I once heard a preacher say that he pastored a church for 3 years and was not even saved. How can you lead the people where you yourself have not been? If you are not sure of your salvation, today you can be absolutely certain. Hebrews 11:1 says without faith it is impossible to please Him. So by faith today say this out loud: Jesus I believe You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. I believe you were born of a virgin, led a sinless life, were crucified on the cross and rose again, I believe that on the confession of my faith I am now saved from Satan's grip and assured of eternity with You. Fill me now with your precious Holy Spirit so I may hear and obey Your voice and live our my purpose in this life for You.
