Salvation: God’s Amazing Plan of Redemption for Mankind

salvationSalvation through Jesus Christ, is the foundation of Christianity.  Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me“.

Salvation through Jesus Christ is the bridge between God and man. Acceptance of God’s Son assures you of eternal life beginning here in this life, and continuing on into life after your body physically dies and your spirit leaves this earth.

If you don’t have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, you can make Jesus the Lord of your life right now through prayer.

There dosen’t need to be an audience. There dosen’t need to be a huge proclamation. You can accept Jesus as the Lord of your life right where you are right now through prayer.

Prayer is simply talking to God. God knows your heart and is not as concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart. Salvation isn’t about you trying to clean yourself up before coming to God. Salvation is about accepting the fact that you are in need of a Savior. It’s about confessing with your mouth, Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life and believing that God raised Him from the dead (Romans 10:9-10).

Do this, and the bible says that you will be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. There dosen’t need to be an audience. There dosen’t need to be a huge proclamation. You can accept Jesus as the Lord of your life right where you are right now.

The Prayer of Salvation

Below is a simple guide to lead you in the prayer of Salvation. Pray this prayer:

God, I need You. I confess Jesus as the Lord of my life and I believe in my heart that You raised Him from the dead. I thank you for sending Jesus to die  for my sin and I open the door of my heart to receive Him as my Savior. Thank You for saving me and giving me eternal life. I give you control of my life. I thank you that according the Romans 10:9-10, I am now saved. I’m now a Christian. 

If you prayed the prayer above, rejoice! You are now a Christian. Welcome to the family. We would love to hear from you! Please feel free to leave a comment below.

Prayer of Consecration – The “If It Be Thy Will” Prayer

Prayer of ConsecrationToday I’d like to talk briefly about the Prayer of Consecration or, the “If It Be Thy Will” prayer.  Jesus prayed the Prayer of Consecration in Matthew 26:36-46 right before He went to the Cross. In this prayer, Jesus was consecrating himself (setting Himself apart) to do the Will of God regardless of His personal feelings or desires. Continue reading

Types of Prayer: Intercessory Prayer

Types of Prayer: Intercessory Prayer

Quite simply, intercessory prayer is the act of praying on behalf of others. The role of mediator in prayer was prevalent in the Old Testament, in the cases of Abraham, Moses, David, Samuel, Hezekiah, Elijah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel. Christ is pictured in the New Testament as the ultimate intercessor, and because of this, all Christian prayer becomes intercession since it is offered to God through and by Christ. Continue reading

Types of Prayer: Petition Prayer

Types of Prayer: Petition Prayer

Types of Prayer: Petition Prayer

Petition prayer (also called the prayer of faith) is when you’re asking God for something. I’ll use 1 John 5:14-15 as my basis for this example.

I call 1 John 5:14-15 the “Polaroid” scriptures. I’m sure I’m dating myself, but many years ago (I won’t tell you how many) we used to use Polaroid cameras. These cameras came with a carton of 4×5 cards with photo developer solution on each card.

The idea was that you loaded the cards into the camera. As you take each picture, a blank card would slide out of the front of the camera and as you held the card, the photo that you took would develop on the card in your hand. Continue reading
