“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:23 (NIV)

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:50 am by Devotions with MYK. Come, walk with me.

   “How do you become saved?”, “How do you know that you’re saved?”, “What do I have to do to show JESUS that I want to be saved?”, “I’m not that bad, I’ll get into heaven!!!”, “I haven’t killed anybody; GOD will let me into heaven!!”

   The first step to "salvation" would be to understand that "ALL HAVE SINNED...” We have all sinned!!! We have all done something, which was against the word of GOD!!! There are consequences to our crimes (sin)!!!

   Romans 6:23 (NIV) tells us, "For the wages of sin is death...". Whoa! Death to those that sin, I'm not making this up. It's written right there in the scripture. GODS infallible Word! As my father-in-law would say, it's a "True story...". We as sinners are deserving of death, eternal separation from the love of GOD, as we dwell in the Lake of Fire. But wait there's still more to Romans 6:23.

   "...but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." How is this a gift to us?!? How is it that CHRIST JESUS gives us "eternal life"?!? Romans 5:8 (NIV) tells us that GOD demonstrated "his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Break your silence with shouts of thanksgiving!!! Shout praises to our LORD!!! Drop to you knees and give our LORD and SAVOIR thanks and praise for taking upon Himself the cost of our debt to sin!!! While we were still "sinners", still showing Him our backs!!! But thanks be to GOD that CHRIST stayed not in the tomb but was raised on the third day and showed Himself victor over sin, showed Himself to be GOD incarnate!!!

   Now that these truths are reviled to you and your eyes are flung open, you must make confession "...with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved (Romans 10:9-10 NIV)."

   Start your relationship with the King of Kings now. Take your rightful place as His heir. Pray to the LORD and tell him you are his. Ask for the forgiveness that only He can provide. If you like pray this prayer and remember it's not the words themselves that will save you but the everlasting Love, Mercy and Glory of GOD.

   GOD, FATHER, I know that I am a sinner and I have sinned against you. I know that I am deserving of punishment, of damnation. I am aware that CHRIST JESUS took the punishment that I so rightly deserve. But through faith in Him I can be forgiven. With Your blessings and help I turn away from my sins, asking your forgiveness and place my life into Your hands. Thank You for Your salvation. AMEN!!!

   If this is your first time coming to accept Christ I welcome you with tears of joy. If you are rededicating your life to the One whom is above all things, I await you with outstretched arms.
