“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” – Proverbs 19:21 The Bible is an open book for everybody, and everybody has a fair shot of coming up with whatever they want to find in it. We’ve got to see the credentials of the teachers. Not only that, but we don’t want to rely on just one person’s opinion. That’s why when it comes to a biblical interpretation, I often counsel people to check as many sound sources as they can and then not just contemporary sources, but the great minds, the recognized minds of Christian history. It’s amazing to me the tremendous amount of agreement there is among Augustine, Aquinas, Anselm, Luther, Calvin, and Edwards—the recognized titans of church history. I always consult those because they’re the best. If you want to know something, go to the pros.
RECEIVE JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR! Choosing to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is the most important decision you’ll ever make FRIEND!
God’s Word promises, “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 whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” -ROMANS.10:9–10,13.
By His grace, God has already done everything to provide salvation. Your part is simply to believe and receive.
Pray out loud,. Jesus, I confess that You are my Lord and Savior, I believe in my heart that God raised You from the dead. By faith in Your Word, I receive salvation now. Thank You for saving me!
The very moment you commit your life to Jesus Christ, the truth of His Word instantly comes to pass in your spirit. Now that you’re born again, there’s a brand-new you! “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things are passed away, behold all things have become new.” – II CORINTHIANS 5:17 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:”
