Commit Your Life

1. Every living person is a Sinner and needs Salvation.

All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23.

In other words, there is no one who is "good enough" to enter heaven on his or her own merits. This is hard for those who pride themselves in their good works. Such people somehow believe they can actually earn their own salvation by being good. They even obey the Golden Rule. It is easy to look at the murderer, the thief, the adulterer and call them sinners. However, it is more difficult to call a sinner a person who has spent his/her life doing good for the sick and the poor and leading a decent life.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way. Isaiah 53:6.

We are sinners because we are born estranged from God. We sin because we are sinners. We are adrift on the vast ocean of life - without life jackets. There is no way we can save ourselves.

2. God Sent His Son to This Earth to Die For Sinners.

The Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:6.

The Old Testament Prophet, Isaiah, foretold the coming of the Messiah (Jesus) who would bring salvation to the world. The penalty for sin is death. Jesus took that penalty and died upon the Cross.

Neither is there salvation in any other [name], for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12.

There is no name that can save you but the name of Jesus. That is very hard today to accept in the day when it is popular to be "multi-cultural" and acceptant of all religions. However, according to God’s Word, it is only through the Name of Jesus whereby man can be saved. All of the ceremonies, rituals and pageants of this world can not save man. Only the Name of Jesus.

Jesus said: I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me. John 14:6.

What must you do to be saved?

  • Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.  Matthew 11:28-30
     
  • But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Romans 5:8
     
  • That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  Romans 10:9-10
     
  • For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  Romans 10:13

You see, dear friend lost upon life’s seas, the life boat is ready and waiting for you. Jesus Christ has done His part. He died for your sins. In order to be saved you must:

  1. Admit that you are a sinner
  2. Confess your sins to Jesus Christ, as He is the only one who can save you.
  3. Believe that fact, that He alone can save you.
  4. Receive Him into your heart. You do this by simply asking Him to come into your heart, as a little child would ask his mother to hold his hand while crossing a busy street.

Today is the Day of Salvation. Open up your heart to the Savior who is waiting to hear your cry for "help".

Prayer:

Dear Jesus,

I come to you acknowledging that I am a sinner, in need of a Savior. I am not able to save myself. I have sinned. I come to you, precious Lord and ask You to wash away my sins. Only your blood which was shed on the cross is acceptable in God’s eyes to cleanse me from my sins. I repent humbly of every sin. Now, I ask You, Lord Jesus, to come into my heart. I want to be your child. I accept by faith what your Word says and believe that Christ has raised from the dead through the power of the Holy Spirit. Because He is alive forevermore, I too shall live forever in His presence.
