When I think of being saved. I picture somebody who is lost or in trouble and wants help. In a sense that is what it is like to be saved by Jesus Christ. See in life there are people that are saved and some that are not. What does it mean to be saved? Christianity is based on a center point which is Jesus Christ. In order to be saved you have to believe and trust Jesus is the Messiah and put Him first in your life. Many Christians that claim to be saved do not put Jesus first in there lives. They seen the glory and greatness of God but yet do there own thing. So are you saved? Am I Saved? Now if we believe in God and make Jesus the Lord of our lives but are not heading in the direction God appointed for us. Then no, I don't believe we are saved. How can we be saved if our lifestyle and our choices are not God focused. You see the moment you choose Jesus. BAM! Your life, your choices, and your mind should all be transformed. How do you know if your transformed? The people that know you and interact with you daily should be the best witness to your transformation. The moment you said yes, the world you live in should eat, sleep, and breathe God. Everything you say and touch should be inspired by God. WE CAN'T BE REDEEMED AND STILL BE A PART OF THE DEVILS PLAYGROUND.
Being saved means that all of God's love and grace flows through us for the world to see. Our lives should feed the Gospel to the hungry and bring the Living Water to the thirsty. God created us in His image to do good works in which He prepared in advance for us to do. Whether we take the wrong road or get stuck in the ditches on the right one. All it takes is for us to call on Jesus for help. That is what makes you saved. Having Jesus in your heart so much that anytime you need help. Turn to HIM. Every time you get tempted or feel the pressures of the world around you. Turn to HIM. You turn to Jesus not drugs, alcohol, porn, money or any other outlet you think will cure you. The devil is always out to confuse you and take away your salvation. It all comes down to choice. Is the pleasures of sin worth your freedom? Is sleeping with the devil worth losing your Savior? We will always be sinners and unholy. But we are loved more than we can ever imagine and that is why God give us grace. God loves us so much that He is willing to overlook our blemishes so we may enter His Kingdom. We are sinners by nature but we are saved by God.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
