HIS MERCIES ARE NEW EVERY MORNING - Good Morning...
We had a wonderful gathering yesterday of the Women Of Glory Ministries - the women of Greater Glory Ministries Church. Smiles, teachings, fellowship, and more. But as I looked around I realized that some of those ladies had never committed their lives in a real way to Christ. I would love it if every person reading this was saved, had accepted Jesus as your personal Savior. But I believe that there are those reading this who have not made that commitment, so I want to dedicate this morning to you ...
Roman Road: The Highway to Eternal Life
Romans 1:20-21: "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened." We must acknowledge God as the Creator of everything and accept our humble position in God's creation.
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.” We must all realize that we are sinners and that we need forgiveness. We are not worthy of God’s grace.
Admit that you are a sinner
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Through Jesus, God gave us a way to be saved from our sins. God showed us His love by giving us the potential for life through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ.
Know that God has made a way for you
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” If we remain sinners, we will die. However, if we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and repent of our sins, we will have eternal life.
Understand that you deserve death for your sin
Therefore ask God to forgive you and save you
Romans 10:9-10 “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Just confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved!
Ask Him to come into your heart
Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” There are no religious formulas or rituals -- Call upon the name of the Lord and you will be saved!
Call out to God in Jesus name
Romans 11:36 "For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen." Determine in your heart to make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life today.
Be determined – today!
If you truly believe the message of the Roman Road, and want to accept God’s gift of salvation right now, it's a matter of repenting of your sins and turning the rest of your life over to Jesus Christ. This is a willful decision and a sincere step of faith.
“Father, I know that I have sinned. Please forgive me. I am truly sorry and want to turn from my past life to you. I know that Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, and is alive. I you to be Lord of my life and to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Thank you for grace, forgiveness, and eternal life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”
Find a local church where you can worship God and have spiritual leadership from that Pastor.
Seek the fellowship with others who believe as you do and develop a group of believing friends to support you.
See you next Sunday morning, if the Lord says the same and delays His coming.
