It’s Easter Sunday and I recount the day I accepted Jesus Christ the saviour into my life. Before this day, I was still a sinner. Even though I grew up in a Christian home, I went through all the motion of praying, fasting, reading my Bible and going to church regularly. I even said the salvation prayer at some point in my teenage years but living the Christian life never really did sink into my mind.
I remember quite clearly the day I cried out to Jesus Christ to save me. I was drowning in sorrow, guilt and shame. I was depressed and going through a really rough time in all areas of my life. I was rejected by family and friends and nobody seemed to want to have anything to do with me. I had been bruised and knocked down emotionally and battered physically which led to my suffering from a low self-esteem. Continue reading “Accept Jesus Christ As Your Lord and Saviour”
God does not want the death of sinners nor does he want anybody to go to hell or die in their sins. That is the reason why Jesus came to save the world from our sins. That is why God is patient and long-suffering. He is patiently waiting for the lost and He wants them in His kingdom. However, it can be difficult for Christians who have accepted this truth but their loved ones are yet to embrace the truth. My brother is a perfect example of this situation. He was brought up in a Christian home with Christian values but he has since turned his back on those things that gave him life as a child. He is currently lost and searching in life and I have been praying for his salvation for a while now. I love my brother despite his attitude towards the gospel and I will continue to pray for him, declare the scriptures over him until he has a change of heart. I know God loves my brother and He is waiting for him to call out for mercy so that he too can receive a pardon for his sins. But until my brother is ready and willing to take the next step into freedom, I will do my part by praying for him until he gives his life to the Lord Jesus Christ.

There are moments in a Christian life when doubts set in and he needs an assurance of his salvation. Soon after he became a Christian in college, author C S Sprout wrote a book titled; Can I lose my salvation? he shared his experience where he was advised by an elderly woman to “drive a spiritual stake in the ground right now.” He needed to make sure his conversion was forever. You may not have received a sound advice like C S Sprout when you accepted Christ as your Lord and saviour but as time goes by, you may find life happen and you begin to wonder and ask yourself some serious questions; Am I a Christian? Is my salvation real? Continue reading “Speak the Word of Assurance for Your Salvation”
Jesus did not go through agonising pain on the cross for no reason. He did not suffer rejection in the hands of those he cared for and loved for no just cause. His betrayal by the most trusted disciple was no child’s play. Jesus did it all for a reason in the season. He went through it all so that you might have abundant life.
Like a criminal he was harshly treated, beaten, spat upon, stripped naked, pierced, whipped with seventy lashes, condemned to death on the cross, so that you could be redeemed from the harsh consequences of sin and just so that you do not have to go through the same injustice he suffered on earth.
