Your Salvation relies on your Faith
Scriptures for your review:
2 Timothy 1:12
Ephesians 3:12 says Because of Christ and our faith in him,we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.
I went to church out here in LA with my linesisters and it was a blessing! I’m not going to repeat what the pastor said but I am going to encourage you to grow your faith. Doubting God will get you no where and how can you expect growth and blessings with an attitude of doubt? Yes it’s difficult to be patient and trust God when you are in a bind, but you will be all the better because of it. Salvation is defined in the verses below:
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
1 John 5:11-13 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Romans 10:9-10 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.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
We must accept Christ and the responsibilities associated with being saved–namely faith. Have faith that God will change you and your situation for the better! Don’t doubt, because doubt is a product of fear and that is not something God gave us (2 Tim 1:7)!! Trust that when you ask God something He will do it. Believe and receive the promises of the Word! Go and exercise your faith! I’m praying for you…
