What Being Saved Means!
WHAT BEING SAVED MEANS!
Shared by Apostle James R Winfree Sr.
Do we see ourselves as a guilty, lost sinner who stands condemned before a Holy and Righteous GOD ( Romans 3:10-19,23 )? Do we recognize that own hearts is deceitful and wicked and incurably sick ( Jeremiah 17:9;)) ( Mark 7:21-23)? Do we see ourselves as deserving of death and hell ( Romans 6:23 )? Do we realize that if GOD were to give us what we deserve and repay us for the way we have lived, then we would be totally destroyed ( Psalm 130:3; compare Psalm 103:10 ) WOW!.
Do we recognize that there is absolutely nothing we can do to save Self ( Titus 3:5 ). Do we understand that trying our best to perform good works will never gain us or earn us an entrance into heaven ( Ephesians 2:8-9 ). Do we realize that human church buildings or your religious system cannot save souls ( Jeremiah 17:5 ). Are we convinced that own righteousness and our own goodness falls far short of the righteousness that GOD requires and demands ( Romans 3:10-12;) ( 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ). Do we, in and of ourselves, have any personal credentials that are acceptable before GOD ( Isaiah 64:6 ).
Do we Believe that Jesus Christ is GOD'S only Solution to our sin problem ( John 3:16 ). Do we recognize Christ as The Only True Way to GOD The Heavenly Father ( John 14:6 ), The Only Door to Salvation ( John 10:9 ), The Only Savior for All sinners ( Matthew 1:21 ) and The Only One who can give us Eternal Life ( John 10:28; 17:3 ). Do we understand that Jesus Christ is The Eternal GOD ( John 1:1-3 ) who came into this world and became A Man to save us ( John 1:14; 1 Timothy 1:15; John 3:17 ). Are we convinced that He loved us even when we were great sinners ( Romans 5:8; John 3:16 ) and that He died and rose again to save our souls ( Romans 4:25 ). Are we persuaded that The Lord Jesus died on the Cross for our sins and that He died in our place as our perfect Substitute, dying in our stead and paying completely the full penalty for our sins ( Isaiah 53:6;)( 1 Peter 3:18; ) (2 Corinthians 5:21 ).
Are we trusting in JESUS and in Him alone to save us (Acts 2: 37-38). Have we come to Christ in simple, child-like faith ( John 6:35,37;) (Matthew 11:28)? Have we, by faith, personally received The Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, LORD, and KING ( John 1:12 ). Are we resting our entire being on who JESUS IS ( John 10:30 ), on what He has done ( 1 Cor. 15:3-4 ) and on what He has said ( John 6:47 ). Do we Believe that He is able to completely save all those who come unto GOD through Him, including you! ( Hebrews 7:25 ). Do we Believe the statement of Christ found in ( Acts 2:38 ) and In ( John 3:16 ) true of you and you will obey HIM? ( RECEIVE THE HOLY GHOST!!!)..... Have you ever shared with others that Jesus Christ is your Savior ( Romans 10:9-10;)( Matthew 10:32 ). Are you able to say from your heart and very soul, “Your hope is Built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness? I dare not trust the sweetest frame but wholly lean on Jesus’ Name. On Christ The Solid Rock I stand....With tears in my eyes....All other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand!” ( This is my stand, hope, faith and belief, and my very life, Brother & Apostle James R Winfree Sr,)
Another helpful question that I can ask myself is this: If I were to die today and stand before The Holy GOD and He should ask me, “Why should I allow you to enter My Holy heaven?” what would my answer be? If my answer in any way points to SELF (my own credentials, my own works, my own religious deeds, etc.) then I am not standing on solid ground. Here are some examples of Believers
“GOD should let me into His holy heaven because in my life I have done more good than bad.”
“GOD should let me into His holy heaven because I try to keep the ten commandments.”
“GOD should let me into His holy heaven because I’m a member of a certain so called church human buildings” etc. All such answers point to SELF, But GOD'S Salvation is not of SELF; Salvation is of The LORD CHRIST JESUS!
There is only one reason why we can enter GOD'S Holy Heaven. The appropriate response is this: “We will enter GOD'S Holy Heaven for One reason and One reason only. It is only Because of Jesus Christ our Savior. Apart from His work on the cross I could never be saved. Apart from His life which He has given to us as His FREE GIFT, We could never enter His Holy Heaven. He is our only hope. He is our only righteousness, He is All the righteousness we need. Thank You, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul and making me whole.” Notice how this answer points away from SELF and clearly points to THE Savior and to JESUS Alone! Amen.
We Are Leading All Souls To Our Savior, The One And Only, Jesus Christ.
