DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Salvation Through Faith In Jesus As Saviour
God has provided an alternative path to attaining righteousness before Him – a new and living way which Jesus Christ consecrated for through the veil, that is, His flesh by dying on the cross. Righteousness is not attained any longer by ritualistically following the demands of the law, but rather by believing in one’s heart that Jesus died for one’s sin. The belief should then be followed by making verbal confession before men that one has accepted Jesus Christ as one’s Saviour. To many this salvation step looks too simple – “to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness” (1 Cor. 1:23). It cannot be denied that many people have professed to belief in Jesus Christ while their lives profess otherwise. The defect is not in the word of God, but in the motive of those who come to Jesus Christ for reasons other than to be saved from the power and penalty of sin. Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Point of Emphasis: If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Prayer Point: Jesus Christ, I believe You died for me. Deliver me from the power and penalty of sin.
