The Road to Salvation
Our assurance of salvation and eternal life is securely ours, we only need to believe God’s Word and place our trust in Him. From the moment we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are rescued “(called) out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9) and are no longer condemned for our actions but forgiven through repentance. God assures us that all who believe in Jesus will be saved! Then as Christians, we are to have godly sorrow for the sinful nature of our heart and the sinful acts that we do as a result of that sinful nature in us. We must pray daily that God will purge our hearts so that our hearts may know Him and desire to long after His righteousness. Where sin is concerned, we must change our minds about doing such acts that separate us from God; we must be willing to turn away from that which is sin and follow after Him who is holy.
Prayer for Salvation
Father, right now I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, I believe that you raised Him from the dead. Forgive me for my sins- my words, my deeds, and my thoughts that were not pleasing in your sight. Thank you for the grace given to me unto salvation. I ask you to create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit in me. I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Now teach me your ways by Your Holy Spirit so that I may live my life devoted to You. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
