A Salvation Story (Part VII/The Conclusion)

You, O Pharisee, why do you boast of your own?
Why do you put trust and hope on your works alone?
Why are you trying hard to earn your salvation
And striving so hard to earn your own redemption?

For a free gift is the grace of God that’s saving
Freely available’s the life everlasting;
Pricelessly given was His act of redeeming
And needless to pay’s His freedom that’s unbinding!

In your brokenness, seek for the Lord’s help alone
For the Great I AM, the Lord, holds your redemption;
In your sinfulness, don’t trust the strength of your own
For only Jesus is the Way to Salvation!

    Do you want Jesus to come into your life? Pray this prayer.

    Dear Father God,

    I now believe that Jesus Christ is Your only begotten Son, that He came to our earth in the flesh and died on the cross to take away all of my sins and the sins of this world. I believe that Jesus Christ then rose from the dead on the third day to give all of us eternal life.

    In the name of Your Son Jesus, I now confess to You all of the wrong and sinful things that I have ever done in my life. I ask that You please forgive me and wash away all of my sins by the blood that Your Beloved Son have personally shed for me on the cross. I am now ready to accept Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. I now ask that Your Spirit come into my life and live with me for all of eternity.

    Father God, I now believe that I am truly saved and born again.

    Amen (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
