My Walk With Jesus

Posted by Site Admin On 10:42 AM

   True Faith is believing in the gospel about Jesus Christ dying on the cross for my sins.  This is about His perfect work of redemption that, if I will sincerely believe, will give me salvation of my soul through His forgiveness of my sins and His giving me assurance of eternal life.

"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
"The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
"Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other name whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12

   Doing this brings me an assurance of salvation because I decided to fully believe and accept the Lord Jesus as my only Savior and Lord.  What an amazing and real assurance that even if I die today, I will go into the presence of the Lord and live with Him forever.

   Here is a prayer to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior:
      "Dear Lord, I believe that you died on the cross in order to pay the penalty of all my sins.  I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that the only way for my sins to be washed away is through the cleansing of your blood shed on Calvary.  I confess all my sins and I accept You as my personal Savior and Lord.  Thank you for forgiving me and for giving me assurance of salvation and a new life to live as Your child."  Amen.

   True faith results in a changed life because 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation.  Old things are passed away, behold all things are become new."  It is the Holy Spirit who works this out of my life.  My thoughts, values, interests, ambitions and desires become new through the active work of God's power using the Word of God and His guidance to enable me to live a victorious Christian life moment by moment.
   True Faith will uphold and help me to continue to grow in the way I profess Jesus Christ as Hebrews 4:14 says, "Therefore, since we have a great High Priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess."  I will also keep keep on with my study and meditation of the Word of God.  I will also grow in prayer for others and in service for the Lord, in witnessing to others the life and salvation through Jesus Christ and in giving the Lord's tithes and my offerings to the Church in order to help in the ministries locally and abroad.
   Finally, True Faith will enable me to grow in a life of "Faith-Rest" (Hebrews 4:3, 10, 11) day by day.  This means that I will live moment by moment in the joy of my salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit.  "Be filled with the Spirit." Ephesians 5:18

"Ye shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you, and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and unto the uttermost parts of the earth."  Acts 1:8

   Then I will also grow daily in the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Galatians 5:22, 23)
   May I continually live this life until the return of the Lord.
