What Is Real Salvation

What Is Real Salvation by Keith Cook

"But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him." 1 Corinthians 8:6

News Event:  Keith and Joan Cook, Shad and Sheila Williams, Zach Blickens, Matt Kearney, John Andrus, and GFE Kenya team members will be ministering in Kenya June 6-14, 2017!  Praise God for the opportunity to Preach the Good News of Jesus Christ! Your Prayers and Support will help to blaze a Gospel trail all over Africa and you will be right in the middle of all we do!

Yesterday, we discussed Fake Salvation and what Salvation is not. Today, we will look at what true salvation in Christ really is.

Saving faith, true belief, and real salvation come from putting your trust and confidence in Jesus. Then you ask Jesus to pay the penalty and forgive you of your sin. Next you receive, by faith, your free gift of an eternal home in Heaven and God's provision of strength and guidance while living on Earth. All this can be yours! Right Now!

The Devil will never give in to God's will, but you can. You can come to Jesus for the right reason. You don't have to play a game with God. You don't have to pretend to be a Christian; you can really know you are a Child of God.

Right now you can pray and ask Jesus to come into your heart (whole life). The choice is yours. Decide today. Don't wait any longer. Your prayer can be something like this:

Dear God, I am sorry for my sin. I cannot save myself. Jesus you died for me on the cross. I believe you are God. Come into my heart and save me today. I will live by your power. Give me courage and strength to live for you. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. Thank you for taking me to Heaven when I die.

When one prays a prayer like the one above with a genuine desire for Christ to be their Saviour, the Bible says, "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved!"

If you have prayed and asked Jesus to come into your heart (life) the Bible says He did. I would suggest you immediately contact a person you know is a genuine Christian and ask them to help you learn more about your new life in Christ. You may want to call a local pastor.

Your new life will include Bible study, prayer on a daily basis, regular church attendance, and sharing your own love for Jesus with others.

Learning and growing in Christ is something we should be experiencing all the time. Don't be ashamed to ask for help from a local church, a minister, or another Christian.

I thank God for your decision and want to hear from you. I would love to send you some material on how to live for Jesus! For spiritual help or information write, email, visit our web site, or contact a local church in your area. May Christ continue to bless and keep you in the center of His will.

Personal Prayer Focus: Praise God for His Provision of Eternal Life to those who place their trust in Him. Pray for New Believers as they seek to Grow in their Christian life.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Keith Cook as he directs our GoTeam to Kenya.  Please pray for traveling mercies as the team's flight leaves this afternoon.  The team will be ministering in Kenya through Wednesday, June 15. Pray for travel mercies, "Divine Appointments," opportunities to minister, decisions for Christ, and God's will to be done.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.
