A Call to Salvation
Right from the Garden of Eden, the search for the recovery and restoration of the soul of man has been on.
Adam where are you?, has remained the age-long question of the Heavenly Father. He knew where He placed His man. God had given this man dominion over all he had made; He clothed the man with a garment of glory that gloriously hid away every shame or reproach in the man. The man possessed a nature that gave him free access to the holy presence of God. He and God spent the cool evenings intimately together.
But the day the man sinned by disobeying God’s command about the forbidden fruit, he fell from glory and from the place of dominion, thus became estranged from the presence of God. The consequences of this fall had lingered down through every generation of mankind after the first man.
Romans 3: 23 tells us that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Hence every child born into this world carries along from his or her mother’s womb this batch: “a sinner.” The child is not branded a sinner because he or she has committed any sin, but because a devilish nature of sin runs through the lineage of mankind right from Adam. The Psalmist says in Psalm 51:15- Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
But we are not left without hope, help or solution. In Romans 5:19, the Bible says: “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”
This is to say that, if through the sin or disobedience of one man-Adam, everyone was counted a sinner, through the obedience of another man also, everyone would be made righteous depending on their choices. Well, this other man is Jesus Christ who the Bible said He came to deliver His people from their sin.
Today, Jesus is seeking to deliver you from your sins if you let Him. The search for the salvation of your soul has been on till now. If you will invite Jesus to be the Lord and saviour of your soul today, He will willingly do so, for that is why He came into this world. Remember, you can’t become righteous by attempting to keep all the rules and regulations about moral living without Jesus Christ. What make you righteous is acknowledging and accepting the work of redemption the Lord Jesus Christ had completed on the cross.
Romans 10:9 says: “…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.”
This is all you need to be saved. May I therefore invite you to make The Lord Jesus your Lord and saviour today, as you pray this prayer below:
Lord Jesus Christ, I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of your salvation. I confess that you are The Lord, I believe in my heart that your death on the cross was for my redemption, I believe you were raised from the dead on the third day. Please LORD, forgive me all my sins today and make me a new creation. Thank you dear Lord for saving my soul from eternal damnation, in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
