January 5, 2020 Higher Everyday Devotional :- SIMPLE STEPS TO SALVATION
SUNDAY JANUARY 5, 2020
TOPIC: SIMPLE STEPS TO SALVATION
BIBLE TEXT: “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (ROMANS 10:10).
A preacher has rightly reasoned that, “Many people spun the message of salvation across the world because no cost is attached to it”. So it is. A lot of people – adults, youths and children – have rejected the gift of salvation for ages, simply because it is free.
Though the steps to salvation are as simple as A B C, Satan makes sinners to believe that they have to work for it. He tells them to engage in religious activities that cannot set them free from sin. They are made to go to the riverside for cleansing, embark on pilgrimage, marathon fasting or to give alms to the poor, do confirmation, etc., to obtain salvation.
Salvation is a free gift from God. It is not of works. What are the simple steps to salvation? A – acknowledge your sins and accept that Jesus died for your sins. B – believe on the Lord Jesus and His atoning blood. C – confess your sins to God, forsake them and accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. Jesus has fully paid the price for our salvation.
QUOTE: Jesus has fully paid the price for our salvation
