How To Be Saved-Part 9

April 29, 2014

 

Saving faith is something that we cannot have in and of ourselves. You cannot have saving faith unless you have salvation. What is salvation? Salvation is believing that God in heaven sent His Son Jesus to this earth as a sinless baby who was born in a manger in Bethlehem, who grew up to be a mature man and He never once sinned. He was a man, and He was the only begotten and unique Son of God, whom God allowed to be put upon a cross, sinless, and taking the sin of mankind upon Himself. You see, He paid the price that was owed to God by dying in your place and mine as our substitute. He took your penalty! My friend, God’s salvation is a free gift and you cannot receive this free gift by keeping your hands in your pocket so to speak…you have to reach out and take it. You must reach out with your heart by believing, by trusting, and this dear friend is saving faith.
