Salvation

Salvation Prayer: 
Dear Lord Jesus,
Lord.....I am coming to you right now, to ask you to forgive me
of all my sins.  I have sinned against you through my life
and I ask you to come into my life and heart and change me
through the power of the Holy Spirit.
I believe that Jesus died for my sins on the cross, and
suffered and died and shed His blood for me.
From this day forward, I want to live for you and want
you to take control of my life and make me a new
creature in you, Lord.

Salvation Through Faith

  Religion by Self-Effort Salvation by Faith
Goal

 

Please God by our own good deeds Trust in Christ and then live to please God.
Means Practice, diligent service, discipline, and obedience, in hope of reward Confess, submit, and commit yourself to Christ's control
Power Good, honest effort through self-determination The Holy spirit in us helps us do good work for Christ's kingdom
Control Self-motivation; self-control Christ in me; I in Christ
Results Chronic guilt, apathy, depression, failure, constant desire for approval Joy, thankfulness, love, guidance, service, forgiveness

Salvation by faith in Christ sounds too easy for many people. 
They would rather think that they have
done something to save themselves.  Their religion becomes one
of self-effort that leads either to
disappointment or pride, but finally to eternal death. 
Christ's simple way is the only way, and it alone leads to eternal life.
The life of a Believer in Jesus Christ as Savior, is one of relationship, not
of "religious" rules and law.
When we are saved, the law is "written" on our hearts and we
are wanting to do the will
of God in our lives because of the love for His son,
Jesus, our personal Savior.
