Titus 3:5 says” He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
The word “Salvation” appears in the King James bible 164 times, that’s a lot of times. What is salvation and why are some people afraid of it? I am not one to argue over God’s word and so I am not going to start today. Some of you might disagree and you are entitled to your opinion. Let’s go to scripture and see that the word of God says, shall we?
What is Salvation? Why are some people afraid? Is this, For God so loved the world that HE gave His only begotten Son that who so ever believe on Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.( John 3:16) With that being said there is no other meaning or solution or formula. Man becomes afraid of the gift of salvation because man can not grasp this concept in John 3:16 and so what man does is trying to conjure up something so that it makes sense to them to believe in salvation. Needless to say man looses every time and end up following some other gods in the world which Satan has created, like New Age, Scientology, Spirituality, and so forth.
You can be saved, scripture says in Romans 10:9-10 That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in you 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. Man struggles with believing that God raised Jesus from the dead, some don’t even believe that Jesus is the Messiah. Even when Jesus was on the earth many people didn’t believe who HE said He was; even after all the miracles they doubted Him. But there were others who believed He was who He said He was.
In our society if you ask a person are they a Christian many will say yes that they are, but what I have learned is that many people are saying yes but once you ask them about Jesus life, death and resurrection they will tell you that they don’t believe in all of that. Now according to this scripture here in Acts 4:12 say’s And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” if you don’t believe in Jesus then you aren’t saved, which means you aren’t a Christian.
Each day with so much happening in the world and happening in our own lives, I just don’t know how anyone can actually live without having Jesus in their lives. For me just being able to have calm spirit when my days gets hectic. I can’t make it without Him. He’s everything to me.
In conclusion don’t let anyone or anything tell you that you can’t have salvation, for Salvation is yours. The Lord God said so in His word. AMEN
