WHAT SALVATION MEANS TO US
Sunday AM February 18, 2000
25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
26 “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
27 “Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;
29 “and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 “Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
32 “For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Let us bow our heads in prayer
Here Jesus is telling us that we need not worry about the everyday functions of our life.
God, all ready knows our need’s, and our wants.
What we need to be worrying about is our own salvation.
He is telling us in verse 33 that we need to seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all of these things will be added to us.
God knows that we all have needs, but the first and foremost need is salvation, without salvation we would all be lost.
Thank God that He sent His Son to die for us that we would not have to go through the suffering, HE ( JESUS ) DID IT FOR US.
AND TO KNOW THAT THIS TRUE TURN TO
21 “And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”
ALSO TURN TO,
5 And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.
6 Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.
God will not even hear a prayer from a sinner, no matter how sincere a sinner might pray in a time of need god does not hear.
Not only does He not hear, He can not hear you.
God cannot be anywhere sin is, He hates sin so much that when his only son Jesus Christ was hanging on the cross dieing for our sins, god turned his back on his son Jesus.
When Jesus was hanging there he called out to his Father and said my God my God why hath thou forsaken me.
Why, someone might ask?
God cannot be around where there is sin.
You might ask if God does not hear a prayer from a sinner then how will you be able to get saved.
That’s an easy one to answer.
When a person gets tired of sin.
Sick of sin.
Ready to give up sin and live a clean life for God,
Then that person has all ready taken a step forward and has become a repenter.
And when you become a repenter,
That is the first step that it takes to become a person that is wanting to be saved and is ready to live for God.

5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
6 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
