Good day, brothers and sisters in Christ; this article brings you the gospel’s good news. Reading from the Bible, in the book of John 14:27, The Saviour Jesus Christ, during his ministering days on earth, has given us peace before ascending finally into heaven. He said, “Peace I leave with you and my peace I give unto you..” The gospel of Jesus Christ is everlasting, bringing genuine peace and joy to those who accept it wholeheartedly.
John 14: 27 (King James Version)
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Jesus Christ is a man of peace, and he wants his followers (Christians) to feel this peace in all ramifications of their lives. His mission on earth was to reconcile man again with God through his infinite sacrifice; he also showed us the right path to follow that will lead us into eternal life. The salvation of mankind is his utmost priority, and man shall be saved if he agrees and chooses to be saved. John 3:16 makes us understand that those who believe in Jesus Christ should be saved and have eternal life.
John 3:16 (King James Version)
“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.”
The question is, have you decided to follow Jesus Christ and become saved ??
Salvation in literal terms means “save.” Now relating it to the gospel means total freedom from sin into eternal life, where man will be privileged to live with God again. This should be the greatest desire of every child of God, to make heaven. Until you are saved by accepting Jesus Christ and following his will, you can not enter heaven’s kingdom.
Reading from the scriptures in the book of Romans 10:9-10 (King James Version)
Verse 9 “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.”
Verse 10 ”For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.”
In the above scriptural verses, we understand the process of attaining salvation. You must confess Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. Furthermore, obeying his commandments and following the examples he has laid down for us.
However, it is essential to understand that God has given only Jesus Christ the key to the salvation of mankind. That is why he has said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life…”
John 14:6 (King James Version)
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
And also, in John 17:1-3 (King James Version)
Verse 1 “These words spake Jesus, and lifted his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour comes; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:”
Verse 2 “As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.”
Verse 3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
This compelling scripture passage will make you understand the heavenly glory. God and Jesus Christ are working together to give man eternal life, including the Holy Ghost. They’re working for our good, your good, and my good, their mission is to bring us safely home again, and only Jesus Christ has paved the way for every one of us.
Why are we finding it hard to understand this gospel and enjoy every benefit it has in store for us? Why have we decided to forget our purpose for this mortal life? We are so much distracted by the temporal things we see on earth.
This article has been written to remind you that heaven is the goal, and we are to buckle our seat belts tight because no one knows when the son of man shall come again in his glory. Matthew 16:27 (King James Version)
Matthew 16:27 “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he shall reward every man according to his works.”
In conclusion to Sermon on salvation, Our Spiritual life is at stake and most important right now. Let us readjust our lifestyles and improve in all areas of our lives. Let us increase and grow our spirituality.
Let us also remember the purpose of mortal life and follow Jesus Christ’s examples and principles so we can survive every hardship that life brings. No matter how much we have lost on earth, If we endure to the end, we will not lose our souls in immortality. His promise in John 3:16 shall be our portion in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
