A simple Explanation of Salvation

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It is the most natural thing for a person to try and manage their life with the hope that the choices they make will eventually produce happiness and wholeness. This was a privilege that was first given to Adam and Eve in the garden. Their lives where complete as they lived in close fellowship with God. Yet there came a day that Adam and Eve disobeyed God’s command and they immediately where expelled from paradise. This expulsion not only introduced them to a fallen world, but they also lost that healthy connection with God. Salvation is an invitation to get back to a personal relationship with the Creator.

Without God’s support Adam and Eve now faltered in their ability to manage their lives. However God spoke to them about a redeemer that would one day bring them (As well as all mankind), back into favor.

In this case 4000 years later the Son of God “Jesus (Yeshua)” came to earth in the form of a man to pay the price for mankind’s many sins. What He did was die upon the Cross and shed His blood.

  • In dying, He was taking upon Himself the punishment that was due us.
  • By shedding His blood, he was satisfying God’s requirements that blood be shed in order to pay
  • the penalty for sin.

Ephesians 1:7-8 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.

If you never have asked for salvation, then it means that you are still in your sins and will one day be punished for those sins. That includes hell and separation from God for an eternity. However the easy way to remedy this is to simply accept what Jesus did for you on the Cross, ask Him to forgive all your sins, and then invite Him to come and live in your heart.

When you are sincere in your request, His Spirit comes and dwells with you and you are then brought into fellowship with Jesus; it’s the beginning of a relationship and not a religion. To add to this wonderful transformation God makes you a brand new person; one that is free of all the physical, emotional, and spiritual bondage that once was a part of your past. The Savior creates a new life for you, making you clean, whole and bringing a remarkable peace to your way of life.

Jesus, I’ve tried to save myself and failed.

I ask that you will forgive me for all my sins.

By your Holy Spirit come into my heart and make me new.

I accept you as my personal Savior and want all of the advantages of your salvation to be mine.

Thank you for this free gift of salvation.

This is just the beginning. If you want more understanding regarding the Christian life here’s some helps to make the journey successful (Free PDF Versions).

Out from the Shadow of Other Gods

Every Christian is desperate for a true relationship and life changing experience with God, but our most prevalent model of success and failure has been religion. The things that have been taught us have had more to do with man’s search for a god, rather than in God showing us His ways. There is a place where religion dies and genuine relationship begins. The first in a series, the author provides a platform for change and a simple yet powerful way out from the trappings of humanities religion. Ministering with honor to the pastor as well as to the prodigal and revealing a surprising bounty of Jesus in every page. Get ready to be encouraged, challenged, and renewed in your walk of faith.

The Shadow of the Spiritual

Got Spirit?

That’s an interesting question, but after two thousand years of Christian history, maybe we should be asking “which spirit?” Though the Christian faith has been provided with a sure foundation in Christ, our propensity to get worldly or even religious has actually pushed us past safe boundaries. There is a quagmire of spiritual alternatives all vying for our attention, yet none of them has anything to do with a true faith in Jesus. “The Shadow of the Spiritual” is meaty, thought provoking, in-depth look into the rising tide of spiritual pollution within the Church. Its lingering effects remain oppressive and damaging to any believer who desires a pure expression of relationship with the Son of God. This self help book is a must read for any Christian wanting to understand how improper spiritual connections get formed, fed and how unhealthy spiritual bondage gets passed around. Yet, by embracing a simple biblical truth, we can separate ourselves from all sorts of added trouble. The second in a series, the author provides a platform for change and a simple yet powerful way out from the trappings of humanities many fallen exploits.

Lord I Want To Change!

Is It time for a change? The Christian life is not always an easy life. Though we are assured that all things have become new, “New life” may end up looking a lot like the old one. This is due to our inability to properly transition away from certain worldly influences. A growing number of our troubles include the weight of family dysfunction, years of social conditioning and any number of personal failures remaining a black mark on our record. All of these issues have a tendency to warp our sense of “self” and we walk through life emotionally crippled; yet Jesus has other plans for us. The Bible provides the Christian a “get out of jail free card”. Jesus offers us a simple and effective way of escape out from the trappings of a difficult past. If you have ever wondered whether there is more to the Christian life, then get ready to be encouraged, challenged, and set free in your walk of faith.
