Salvation Is By Faith Alone In Jesus—That’s It!!!

We have the “assurance” of salvation when we “trust” Jesus with our lives, that’s it.  Once we trust Jesus, He, our great Heavenly Physician, will perfectly heal and restore us, thus our assurance is in Jesus, not in ourselves or our future. Salvation is Now!!    1 John 5:11-13,   1 John 3:2,   John 17:3

 

 

It is all Christ and nothing that we “do” in the area of putting forth effort.  We simply believe what God says. Praise God we don’t have to save ourselves.

She will bear a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.  Matthew 1:21, Luke 2:11, John 3:16,  Romans 10:9

 

 

Trusting In Jesus: John 11:26: You Never Die, Hebrews 4:3,10-12                         But You Must Continue Trusting In Jesus!

 

 It’s All About My Relationship!!  Am I Trusting In Jesus? John 17:3

 

The very foundation of Salvation is grounded in the realization that God’s unmerited love toward us is greater than any other power— Including death!!      Romans 8:35-39, Ephesians 3:14-21

 

Sin Is Not Trusting In Jesus

Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.  And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me.  John 16:7-9

 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

 

 

 

 

 


 Romans 3:23  says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
Worry is falling short on faith.  Impatience is falling short on kindness.  The critical spirit falls short on love.
So, how often do you sin, hmm… in an hour?  For the sake of discussion, let’s say ten times an hour.  Ten sins an hour, times sixteen waking hours, times 365 days a year, times the average life span of 74 years.  I’m rounding the total off to 4,300,000 sins per person!  How do you plan to pay God for your 4.3 million sin increments?  You’re swimming in an ocean of debt.
But God pardons the zillion sins of selfish humanity.  He forgives sixty million sin-filled days.  He got us out of the mess we’re in and restored us to where He always wanted us to be.  And He did it by the grace of Jesus Christ. Romans 3:26
