There are those that think that women should only wear dresses and skirts. Some think woman shouldn’t wear make-up. There are still others who believe it is a sin to have a TV in your home. Those same people believe you can lose your salvation for such offenses.
What do you believe?
The bible is clear on the subject of salvation and what it takes to obtain it and even keep it. It’s plain and simple, cut and dry, black and white, if you will. And it’s so simple some believe it’s too simple and that we must add to it in order for it to work. I’m here to tell you, we need not add anything. NOTHING.
Jesus did all the work needed 2000+ years ago when he died on the cross. All we need to do is…
#1 realize we are sinners. The bible says ‘ROMANS 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one.’ Even pastors and priests aren’t good enough to go to heaven without knowing Jesus as their Saviour!
#2 We have to realize there is a consequence or payment for that sin ‘ROMANS 6:23 A For the wages of sin is death.’You work a job, you ear a wage; money. You sin, you earn a wage; death or separation from God.
#3 Jesus paid that debt for us ‘ROMANS 5:8-9 But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.’God loved us so much, He gave up His own son to die for you and me!!
#4 And last but definitely not least, all we have to do is accept/believe in our hearts and call upon the Lord to save us from hell ‘ROMANS 10:9-11 That 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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture sayeth, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed.’ All you have to do is turn from your sin and turn to God and confess that He is the one and only way to heaven and believe it in your heart and there you have it… it doesn’t get any easier.
If you have read this and accepted Christ as your personal Savior, CONGRATULATIONS on getting that taken care of, you’ll be so glad you did!! Please leave your name in a comment so that I can pray for you !!! And also find yourself a good, Bible (King James) preaching Church where you can grow in your faith!!
Now, back to what some believe about what Christian’s should wear and so forth…NOTHING is more important than what we believe about salvation. There is truly only ONE WAY to get to heaven. I believe that is the single most important thing we need to worry about in our Christian lives today. Not what our church members are wearing, not whether or not they are wearing jewelery or frequenting the movie theater and certainly not whether our women wear make-up. I understand that we are to abstain from the appearance of evil, but people are going to think what the want, no matter what we are doing.
So with that said, let’s be about our Father’s business and get the gospel out to as many as we can while we still have time to do so and stop worrying so much about things that in the long run aren’t really going to matter…
God Bless!! Jo xo
