Summary: Explains how to receive the free Salvation offered by Jesus Christ.
DO YOU HAVE SALVATION?
What’s the meaning of Salvation??
In the Webster it says salvation is preservation!
Or Deliverance from destruction, danger
or great calamity.
Like a Man who’s drowning and going down
the last time.
And someone reaches in and pulls him out
and saves Him!
This is one type of salvation!
Or a child in a burning building and
the flames are engulfing the child
and a brave firefighter runs in and
rescues this child!
Or a businessman who is about to face
bankruptcy and lose everything he has
and, A Friend comes to his rescue with
the money he needs and his
business is saved!!!
But the Salvation which Jesus Christ offers to
all sinners is much, much more than this!!
A Man who’s lost and headed for eternal death
in hell cries out in faith to Jesus Christ.
Then Jesus reaches down and lifts him up
and saves his soul from hell and eternal
But there’s still more to it!
This thing called Salvation involves all that happens
to a man, from the time he trusts Christ, until the time
He meets him face to face in glory.
And even down throughout the years of eternity!
People listen Salvation is such an experience!!
In the old days the preachers spoke of
an experience of Grace.
They meant something had happened
between God and the sinner!
They met each other and the sinner repented
of His sins, and put his faith in Jesus
and God had forgiven him.
If you haven’t had this experience then
You ain’t never been saved!!!
John 1:12 says:
But as many as received him, to them gave he
power to become the sons of God,
And even to them that believe on His name.
John 3:36 says:
He that believeth on the Son, hath everlasting
life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not
see life; but the wrath of God abideth in him!
John 3:18 says:
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he
that believeth not is condemned already,
because he hath not believed in the name of the
only begotten Son of God!!
God takes the first step for you in salvation
He calls You!!!! AMEN
See You don’t seek God - God seeks You!!!
Way back in the Garden of Eden in the Book
of Genesis 3:9 - when man first sinned
We heard God cry out;
Where art thou?
When Jesus came into the world,
He said in Luke 19:10:
The Son of man is come to seek and to save
that which was lost.
And again in John 6:44 He said:
No man can come to me except the Father which
hath sent me draw him.
And I will raise him up at the last day
and in the Book of Romans we’re told
That God calls those who
are to be saved, then he justifies them
then He glorifies them.
Do you know what these Scriptures are
Its very simple
God is the initiator in the experience
God is the one who sends the Holy Spirit
to convict us.
He points it right out to us just how lost we are.
He draws us right to Him!!!
Jesus said in John 12:32
And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,
will draw all men unto me!
We get saved when we respond to that
And we remain lost when we refuse
the knocking on our hearts door!!
God is the one who draws
God is the one who knocks
God is the one who calls
And God’s the one who saves!
He stood at my hearts door mid sunshine
and patiently waited an entreated
in vain, For He is precious to me!!!
When I Was little and had done something
bad my mom would usually say
you wait till your daddy gets home!!
How many of us have heard this growing up???
And remember the waiting, how it was so much
worse than that whopping!!!!!
And then when daddy got home OOOHHH
the pain of that whoppin
But when Jesus is calling that sinner,
He’s not callin him to punish him,
but he’s callin to forgive him,
and he’s callin to bless him,
and He’s callin to save him!!!
You see God don’t want to any of us to
go to that terrible place where there’s
weeping and gnashing of teeth
He wants to save us from that place called hell!!
AAAHHHH people listen
when your car won’t run you take
it to a mechanic!
When you’re sick you go to a doctor
when you need legal advice you
go see a lawyer!!
But when you need to get saved you run to
your local altar, to the salvation expert,
