Sunday's Thought

(C) Allen Pearson, All Rights Reserved

"because, if you confess with your mouth
that Jesus is Lord 
and believe in your heart that God
raised him from the dead, you will be saved."

 - Romans 10:9, ESV

In this day and age of complicated processes or chores and being rewarded or recognized for what you have done good for your company, community or whatever, it is difficult to believe that something great can be received for free.  

Free? Yes free... free for the asking. These days it seems anything worth anything you must either work for it or pay a pretty penny to get it.  Not with God's Plan of Salvation.  He loves you, He wants the best for you- ALWAYS- He wants you to spend eternity with Him- some day- He wants the absolute best for you! 

As I look back over my life, I can see God's magnificent Hand with me through all my days.  This isn't to say that I have had an excellent trouble-free, problem-free life because I haven't had.  However, I have seen God's Hands and Love over me through the trouble and problems. 

If you would like to accept God's Gift of Salvation, please follow these steps:

Admit that you are a sinner, just like everyone else born into this world, until we  confess to Jesus Christ and ask His forgiveness:

"(23) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 
(24) and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

-Romans 3:23-24, ESV

"(23) For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

 -Romans 6:23, ESV

Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ:

(16) “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,
that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." -John 3:16, ESV

Confess your sins in a prayer to the Lord Jesus Christ:

(9) "because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord 
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved. "

- Romans 10:9, ESV

(13) For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”   -Romans 10:13, ESV

"Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and do not deserve eternal life. 
I believe You died and rose from the grave to make me a new creation 
and to prepare me to dwell in your presence forever. 
Jesus, come into my life and take control, 
forgive my sins and save me. I place my trust in You alone
 for my salvation and I accept your free gift of eternal life."
