The concept of salvation – or being saved – is central to the Christian faith. It operates at both the global – or cosmic – scale, and at individual level.
Salvation is God’s grace. It is the gift of freedom from our sins that Jesus made possible by taking the punishment for our sins on the cross. Through this gift, 1 John 1:9 promises that “If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION
If you die today will you go to Heaven? Why would anyone put off the most important decision they could ever make in their lives, concerning eternal life? For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that none can boast.
So you have made your commitment and accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. You are ready to go forward and live your life for God every day at home, in your work, at school or wherever you may be.
Some steps to help you on your way:-
1. Read your Bible every day, it will help you grow in your faith. Start with the gospel of John.
2. Pray - Prayer is simply talking to God each day.
3. Find a bible believing church that has a high regard for the bible. It's important to fellowship with other believers. If you are struggling to find somewhere, get in touch with us via email on email@example.com or 07748 580424.
4. Water baptism symbolizes the believer’s total trust in and total reliance on the Lord Jesus Christ, as well as a commitment to live obediently to Him. It also expresses unity with all the saints (Ephesians 2:19), that is, with every person in every nation on earth who is a member of the Body of Christ (Galatians 3:27–28). Water baptism conveys this and more, but it is not what saves us. Instead, we are saved by grace through faith, apart from works (Ephesians 2:8–9). We are baptized because our Lord commanded it: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).
5.. Share your story and be a witness for Jesus by your actions in everyday life.
Remember, since you are a new person in Christ, the devil will try to make you doubt that you were ever saved and even try to make you think that all this Christian stuff is not even real, or that God isn't listening to you pray.
1 Peter 5:8 says be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
