True Salvation Through Jesus: What It Is and What It Isn't
When the topic of salvation comes up, it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking in extremes. One side of the debate says that if you don’t accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you will spend eternity burning in hell. The other side insists that salvation is only possible through accepting Jesus into your heart and doesn’t require you to take any action beyond that initial step. As much as both of these positions may have some truth to them, neither tells the whole story about true salvation through Jesus Christ.
The need for salvation
We are all born with a sinful nature. This means that we are all born with a desire to do things that go against God's laws. Because of our sinful nature, we are not able to have a relationship with God. However, God loves us so much that he sent his Son, Jesus, to die for our sins. When we accept Jesus as our savior, our relationship with God is restored and we are able to have eternal life with him. In order to be saved, you must ask Jesus into your heart and let him live inside you through the Holy Spirit. Then you will be able to feel the love from God that washes over you like a blanket of love when you read His word. The joy you will feel when sin is washed away and forgiven forever will make every sacrifice worth it in the end!
A real solution in Jesus Christ
Too often, people turn to religion to find a solution to their problems. But what they don't realize is that Jesus Christ is the only true solution. In Him, we find love, joy, peace, and purpose. We also find a relationship with God that is unbreakable. True salvation through Jesus is about so much more than just going to heaven when we die. It's about having a real relationship with God here and now. When we have faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, He has the power to heal us from anything-- whether it be spiritual or physical. If you're interested in knowing more about this kind of healing power and how it can change your life, I recommend reading this book by Christian author Francis Chan called Crazy Love.
How to be saved
Many people think that salvation is something that you achieve through your own actions. But the truth is, salvation is a gift from God that you can receive simply by accepting it. When you accept Jesus into your heart, you are transformed by His love and grace. And this transformation gives you eternal life with Him in heaven. So if you're wondering how to be saved, just know that it's not something you have to earn or achieve on your own. All you need to do is accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, and He will do the rest.
True salvation is found in a relationship with Jesus. It's not simply a one-time event that happens when we pray a certain prayer or walk down the aisle at church. Rather, it's a daily decision to follow Him—to surrender our will to His and obey His commands. When we do this, He transforms our hearts and changes our lives. We become new creations, and He gives us eternal life. As followers of Christ, we should be living as disciples who demonstrate His love to others. To do so means being changed by Christ’s love for us and loving others as He has loved us. In fact, the Bible says that if we love one another, God dwells within us (1 John 4:12).
After all, following Jesus isn't about following rules; it's about following someone who loves you unconditionally. The Bible says The Lord watches over all those who love him (Psalm 145:20). He cares about your spiritual needs more than you can imagine!
The Bible is full of encouragement and proverbs that can be applied in modern-day life. It has been translated from ancient languages into modern English, and yet the message is still as relevant today as it was when it was written.
