Are You Saved?
In Jeremiah 8: 20 we read: “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.” Fast forward to today: “This year is almost past, with another year almost ended, and I am not saved,” is the condition of many people. The sad thing is that many do not seem to be worried about being lost! What about you, my friend? You are either saved or LOST! There is no in-between. Contemplate the sobering words of the chorus of a hymn: “Lost! Lost! O what a cry, from souls along the shore. In darkness to go, in sorrow and woe, and be lost, lost evermore.”
Consider what being lost means. It means separation from God (Isa. 59: 1-2) because of one’s sin (Rom. 3: 23). It means not being a part of God’s family with no personal relationship with God. It means facing eternal punishment (Matt. 25: 46). But there is good news. Jesus is the answer to “lostness.” He came to “seek and to save the lost.” (Lk. 19: 10). The only way to God is through Him. (Jn. 14: 6). You can be “delivered from the power of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the Son of His love. In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” (Col. 1: 13-14). Jesus is the “author (source) of eternal salvation to all who obey Him.” (Heb. 5: 9). Do you believe Jesus is the Son of God, and are you willing to repent of your sins, and confess with your mouth what you believe in your heart, and be baptized to have your sins washed away by the blood of Christ? (Jn. 3: 16; Acts 2: 38; Acts 8: 37; Acts 22: 16).
Jesus can save you, and bring you into His family, and show you the way through this life and into the next one, if you will only obey Him.
So, being saved from your sins, and now being in God’s family, you can sing “I once was lost but now I’m found, was blind but now I see.” If we can help you concerning salvation, please contact us. Think on these things.
