THE LORD'S PROVISION OF SALVATION
In the book of Romans chapter 3 verse 25, it says:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
There is no human being exempt from this maxim. All human beings have sinned and are in a state of separation from God and we have adjoined ourselves to the kingdom of darkness.
This means that because we are participants in the kingdom of darkness, we will share in the harvest of condemnation that was reserved for the devil and his angels.
Our creator and God, seeing the fate that we humans had earned for ourselves, embarked on a plan of redemption that would purchase back any of us who did not want to share in the reward due to satan.
This meant that a perfect person, who had lived in this world but who had never partaken in the sins of this world would have to suffer the penalty of death in order to pay for our sins.
God's Son, Jesus, was the person who could dwell on earth, never sin once and then surrender himself to die on the cross for us.
It is this payment that Jesus made on our behalf that has the power to save us out of darkness and bring us into the kingdom of God.
Believe on the Lord Jesus for it is believing that is counted as having invoked the salvation purchased by the blood of Jesus. It is believing that Jesus died for us and has the power to save us from our sins that causes the cost of our sin to be charged against the account that Jesus funded by His blood. Having believed in Jesus, we must say it out loud before witnesses to confirm publicly what our hearts believe.
As Romans 10 verse 10 says, For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Bless the Lord
