The Holy Spirit has a message for you. He wants you to know you are saved, not by your good works, nor by your prayers, nor by how you love one another. No. No. Jesus wants you to know that you are saved by His blood. His blood was shed the day He was crucified on the Cross. That was when He was nailed to the Cross and your sins were nailed along with Him. This makes your prayers meaningful.
His blood was shed so that you could be forgiven of your sins. He became sin for you, who knew no sin, that you might be made the righteousness of God. What a Saviour!
If you think the blood is not your salvation, then you are still in your sins and it is time for you to realize there is only one way you can be saved, and that is by the shed blood of Jesus.
Your righteousness, then, is strictly because of the crucifixion of Jesus and the shedding of His blood on the Cross. It is the cross where your sins have been nailed.
Your Bible relates the trials Jesus had. He had to carry the cross through the streets of Jerusalem. He even needed help carrying it. Why? Because he had been beaten by a whip with numerous leather straps, each strap with a heavy metal weight on the end. He lay down on the cross while his tormentors nailed each hand and each of his feet to the very cross He had carried. Then He was lifted up and left on that “old rugged cross” so that your sins could be forgiven. This is how He paid for our sins. As he hung there that day, He cried out to His Father, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” What a Saviour!
How great is the love of Jesus! How wonderful is His love! How wonderful to be free of sin and live in the righteousness of Jesus!
We follow Him because He has the words of life and the Holy Spirit dwells with Him, and now is in you. Now, through the leading of the Holy Spirit, we can help others to understand how to be saved. Because Jesus is coming very soon, it is time that we tell everybody how they can have eternal life. Without Jesus, there is no life. He is the way, the truth, and the life.
Have you been forgiven? If not, today is the day to accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. There is no other way.
