That You May Be Saved

Yes. That’s exactly the purpose of this writing. This blog is now being used to communicate to you something, or anything, to help you decide to repent – that you may be saved.

We may not be aware of our situation. Let the Word of God show us.

We need to take action to have the grace of God flow to us. The Word of God will confirm this.

So what is our situation?

Sad but true. Terrible but true. We all. Everybody. Not a single person on earth. And since this is the case, the Lord turned His face away from us. And He would not listen to our call, our prayers…

  • Psalm 34:15 – 16 New Living Translation
    The eyes of the LORD watch over those who do right; his ears are open to their cries for help. 
    But the LORD turns his face against those who do evil; he will erase their memory from the earth.

Ever heard of someone? Whose memory was erased here on earth?

  • Isaiah 1:15 New Living Translation
    When you lift up your hands in prayer, I will not look. Though you offer many prayers, I will not listen, for your hands are covered with the blood of innocent victims.
  • Isaiah 59:1-2 New Living Translation
    Listen! The LORD’s arm is not too weak to save you, nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call. It’s your sins that have cut you off from God. Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore.
  • John 9:31 New Living Translation
    We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but he is ready to hear those who worship him and do his will.
  • 1 Peter 3:12 New Living Translation
    The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers. But the Lord turns his face against those who do evil.”

…But when we take a particular action, we are restored back to His loving mercy!

  1. Repent. This means changing the direction of your life. From sinner who turns away from doing a sin to following God – obeying His commands.
  2. Do His will. (I’m stating only what’s written. We all know that individually, God has a sovereign will – a purpose for our lives. e.i, Paul is an Apostle of Jesus Christ by God’s will.)
    1. 1 Thessalonians 4:3 New Living Translation
      God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin.
    2. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 New Living Translation
      Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
  3. Worship Him.
    1. Romans 12:1 New Living Translation
      And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice–the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.
    2. Psalm 50:23 New Living Translation
      But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.”
  4. Do what is Right and Stop doing Evil.
    1. 1 John 3:7 New Living Translation
      Dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous. But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil.
    2. Psalm 37:28 New Living Translation
      For the LORD loves justice, and he will never abandon the godly. He will keep them safe forever, but the children of the wicked will die.
    3. 1  Corinthians 6:9 New Living Translation
      Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people–none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
    4. Ephesians 5:5 New Living Translation
      You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.
    5. Colossians 3:5 New Living Translation
      So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.
  5. Believe in Jesus.
    1. John 20:31 New Living Translation
      But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.
    2. John 1:12 New Living Translation
      But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.
    3. John 3:36 New Living Translation
      And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.”
    4. Mark 16:16 New Living Translation
      Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned.
    5. Acts 16:31 New Living Translation
      They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.”
    6. Romans 10:9 New Living Translation
      If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
    7. Galatians 3:26 New Living Translation
      For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
    8. 1 John 5:11 New Living Translation
      And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
  6.  Live for Christ. Do everything listed from #1 above down to this number.
