Men are saved, not as a function of their works or deeds, But By believing in Christ.
- As I did mention in THE GOSPEL MESSAGE recently published, Ephesians1vs3 “In whom ye also Trusted” take note of the pronoun “whom” I also stated that The Gospel message is a specific message that is centred on Christ and his Kingdom.
Men are saved upon the hearing of the Gospel. Let’s examine 1corinthians15vs1-4.1: Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;2: By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you unless ye have believed in vain.3: For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;4. And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.
Christ specifically died for the forgiveness of sins, as this has been the nature of man after the fall of Adam(Romans5vs19).
Men are saved as a function of Grace, not by merit(Ephesians2vs8-9). We hear the Right message and we get saved. Any other message, motivational talks, financial and prosperity talks, E.t.c Have no power to save, I wonder why preachers declare an altar call after such talks?
I mustn’t fail to mention also that there is no place in scriptures where men were saved by been scared or reminded about the lake of Fire, judgement and punishment. The Apostles simply preached Christ to them(Acts2vs30-41). I strongly believe that the preacher plays a vital role to rightly deliver the gospel message according to scriptures, to the lost souls.
Men are saved upon the hearing and the believing in the gospel of Christ.Romans10vs9-11, Having believed I urge you to confess
- I believe that Christ died for my sins and he resurrected on the third day for my justification, I believe Jesus is Lord, I have the gift of Righteousness. hallelujah! If you just made this confession. A very big congratulations to you. Stay connected to the site as we X-ray The topic RIGHTEOUSNESS
