SALVATION



John 3:16 
(Amplified Bible)
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He gave up His only begotten Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him  shall not perish  but have eternal life.


The scripture above is "Oh, so true" for so many of us who have found and accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior. All of us have heard the above scripture so many times (no matter who we are!) that almost anyone (in America, at least . . .) can quote the scripture without to much effort or strain. Although this website may give the readers a lot to be inspired about, or be in awe of, or laugh about (hopefully!) the purpose of ANY Christian website-we believe- should ultimately be to lead people to a saving knowledge of Jesus and help them to then grow in their own, individual walks with the Lord.

Dear reader, have you ever REALLY taken just that simple scripture above, to heart?

If you have never prayed the "Sinners Prayer" here is a copy of it below. 

Pray it sincerely. Pray it from your heart.


 “Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”


Now, the following is a quote taken DIRECTLY from a website called www.choothomas.org
We really think, that to 'now grow in the Lord', the following text explains it quite well . . .so we have just copied it verbatim:

How to be saved

First, you must give your heart to Jesus Christ and repent of the sins in your life. Jesus will then take away every sin from your past from that moment on. No matter what sin you have committed, He will never remember them and His Spirit will come into you and live within you. You will have His peace and joy within, which the world can never give you. He truly wants you to go to Heaven and be blessed while you're on earth.

Going to church is very important to the Lord, because it is His house and He wants His people to praise Him. While we are praising Him in the church, we will receive many different kinds of blessing, such as healing and deliverance. Also, it is very important to listen to His word and fellowship with other Christians. This is what He wants us to do after we are saved. 

Reading the Bible daily and praying, many times a day, is a good way to have a relationship with Jesus. This way, you will hear His voice. God loves to hear your voice raised, praising Him instead of praying silently. God talks to us through the Bible because every word in the Bible is God breathed. 

Some Christians and non-Christians literally hear God's voice; sometimes in whispers and other times His spirit speaks into our spirits. When this happens it is like a normal conversation between two people. 

After giving our hearts to God, we must work out our salvation daily by giving up the worldly things that we have been doing before our salvation. If you really try, Jesus will strengthen you in every area of your life and you will find a joy that you could never imagine. The world can never match this joy. 

God will test your obedience and if you are sincere, God will begin blessing you beyond belief. Some blessing come quickly, while others are slower to come. This is why we have to pray continually. 

Learning God's word is very important. Without knowing His word it's very hard to lead a life holy to the Lord and serve Him and be blessed.
