8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
Jesus is your salvation, He is the bridge between you and God. He brought grace into this world in place of the law. The law, that is to say ‘do this and don’t do that’, focused on the ability of men to remain righteous through our actions . Grace on the other hand, allows Jesus to step into our lives and become our salvation.
This means that when we leave this earth in death and stand before God to be judged Jesus will tell God whether or not we have received and accepted Jesus and what He has done for us. Regardless of what we do in our lives, regardless of how much we sin, if we continually acknowledge Jesus as our Lord and savior, we are saved and don’t have to suffer in Hell for eternity. Thank God!
Some great news that I have discovered is that the closer I get to God, the more I seek his wisdom and peace, the less often I sin, because I don’t want to be pulled away from Him. My spirit man is taking precedence and I am living in accordance with 2 Corinthians 5:17. I continuously acknowledge that I am a new creation and that, according to Romans 12, my mind is being renewed.
There is much to learn and much to discover in the depths of the bible and a relationship with Jesus. The beginning, however, is simple: accept Jesus and what he’s done for you. Declare Him the Lord of your life and learn to love him, as you would a best friend. The only difference is that Jesus will never betray you or let you down.
Thank you for your love and support
