Have you ever yelled that out before? We all need saving sometime. Maybe you got lost in a deserted area and needed rescue. Salvation is exactly that—rescue from your sins. You see, your sins (all the things you did wrong) had a huge hold on you, like a death grip. Can you imagine a huge giant squeezing someone by the neck? That’s what sin was doing to you. But when you called out, “Jesus, save me!”, Jesus came and broke sin’s grip off you. The Bible says, “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9). You were saved from sin and death when you asked Jesus to be your Savior.
When Jesus saved you, it wasn’t just for a day or from one particular sin. It was forever and from all sin. Imagine a child who was sold into slavery, and one day a rich man comes and pays a million dollars for that one kid. Now, if that man paid so much to save that poor child, why would he ever give him up? It’s even more so with God who paid with His own Son! The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). When you asked Jesus to save you, He saved you forever and you can trust Him.
“My life has changed in big places and small. I think my DNA has probably changed as well! From every part of my being, I felt alive, I felt different - I could tell something had happened. And my life continues to be transformed - my mind is less of a battlefield, I live in more peace and joy though the world seeks to take that from me. I know my real home is waiting for me and that gives me great strength, peace and comfort” Rory
Thank Jesus for saving you forever. Memorize Romans 10:9 and bring it to mind whenever you start to doubt that Jesus has truly saved you.Part 2: New Life from the Holy Spirit
