Diary Of A Born Again Christian

"Be still, and know that I am God."

Eternal salvation, not temporary salvation.

on May 22, 2012

As Christians, we are always conscious of our actions, words, and feelings. I think it is pretty normal to, from time to time, question the “status” of our salvation. After all, we want to please God, and we want to live our lives through Christ, the most loving, self aware, selfless person that ever lived. But can our salvation be taken away? We were all born with a sinful nature, and no matter what, we will sin. Nobody is free of it. But is there a limit? Is there such a thing as too much sin for someone who has accepted Jesus into their heart?

John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

When we accept Christ into our hearts, what are we doing? We are humbling ourselves before the Lord, and accepting his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, as our savior. We are believing in him, and receiving God’s grace, and promise for an eternal life. As long as we believe in Him, and trust in Him, we will not face judgement(John 3:18).

We were all born with natural sin. This began in the garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit from the tree of life. We will all sin, and for any of us to think that we can completely turn ourselves away from sin is simply not true. We are all sinners, and we always will be, that is why God sent his only son to die on the cross. He paid the ultimate sacrifice, he paid our debt.

Some might wonder, if I am saved, then does that mean I can sin all I want and not be judged by God for it? If you have given your life to Christ, and trust in Jesus, chances are you don’t have the desire to blatantly sin without regret. That is what God’s grace does to us. It gives us the ultimate desire to do his will, and to be the good person that Jesus was. What is most important, is when you do sin, to show humility before God and ask for forgiveness.

Enjoy your salvation. It is eternal, and it is truly wonderful.
