For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
What a verse, short and sweet. So many want to make salvation so complicated, yet this verse puts it out there so simply. Call on Jesus and you shall be saved. God doesn’t want us jumping through hoops, He wants us enjoying the fullness of life that He has provided to everyone that believes on Jesus.
You see, salvation is a gift, and like any gift if we refuse to receive it, we will not enjoy it. But if we receive it, then we can open the package and enjoy all the benefits of it. And what amazing benefits there are in Jesus. Salvation means more than going to heaven when we die. Thank God for that, and we will rejoice for all eternity in this. But if you’re like me, we’re still living in the here and now and I need help now to live every day.
This word “salvation” is from the Greek word “sozo” and it means to save, deliver or protect, to heal, preserve, to do well, to be make whole. So we see that God has a lot more in store for us. He cares about us, spiritually, mentally and physically. Our Father made sure that at the cross, Jesus would suffer for each part of our lives. His thorns were for our peace, the stripes on His back were for our physical healing and His death and resurrection was for our eternal life. God is so good.
So today, when you hear the word salvation or when you say, thank God that I am saved, take it a little further and say, thank God that I am saved and I going to heaven when I die or the trumpet sounds, and thank God that I am healed, I am delivered, I have God’s peace in my life. Jesus bore all the bad for me so I could have all the good.
Today, I declare that I am healed, that I am set free from every addiction that would come against me. I declare that I have God’s peace in my life and that all that the enemy has stolen from me, God has restored. Today, I am saved because of the blood of Jesus, my Lord and Savior. Today, I will accept God’s gift of Salvation because without it the enemy will certainly destroy me, destroy my marriage, destroy my relationship with my children and loved ones…
Thank you, Jesus, for Your priceless gift of salvation to me. Thank You for patiently waiting for all of us to accept this gift. The price You paid is more than this world could ever equal. I thank You for opening my heart to Your goodness, Your kindness and the love You have for me. Even now, You stand waiting for those of us who do not realize what You hold in Your Hands is the ticket to eternal paradise. Many are blind to Your Presence and only see this empty world. Sadly, they turn away. Help me to help them see the priceless pearl You hold out in Your Precious Hands. When I doubt, help me to be strong, when I am scared and worried, send me Your Holy Spirit to lift me up. When I am weak, restore to me vigilence in the uncertain times of this life. I will hold on and neven away from Your goodness for I know You will carry me through to victory one day. I pray this in Your precious name, Amen..
