“Our Part of Salvation”
 
There are many people in this world who believe they are saved by good works.
They believe the good they do outweighs the bad and the Lord owes us salvation.
This is one of the biggest lies we can ever believe.
 
The good works that count are the ones we do after we are saved. So how are we saved?
I am sure most of you reading this know.
 
We are saved by the precious sinless blood of Christ.
Christ was born without sin and He lived aa sinless life.
 
Then He took the sin of the world, all the sins that had been committed, are being committed and will be committed.
He took them to the cross and gave up His life for those sins. He died for every single person that has, is or will live.
 
So what is your part you ask?
 
Please read the following verses.
Romans 10:8-15
8 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming:
9 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
11 As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”
12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile — the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,
13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
 
Now you have just read the good news.
The offer is still on the table until the rapture of the Church. And in case you missed it, I will say it again: Christ sinless blood for our sins.
We simply believe what Christ has said when we say yes to Christ’s offer our sins are taken as far as the east is from the west. Though our sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow?
 
What have you done with Christ’s offer?
Your eternal future rests on your answer.
