Salvation is God’s work – Prayer is essential in witnessing – The Holy Spirit – Jesus Christ Justice, Mercy, and Grace – Salvation of man – Eternal Salvation

Salvation is God’s work

“Salvation belongs to the Lord,” (Psalm 3:8).

When someone appeals to God and seeks forgiveness in Jesus, his sins are removed, he is cleansed, his relationship with God is restored, and he is made a new creature (2 Cor. 5:17). All of this is the work of God, not man.

The Bible has a phrase that describes the non-Christian.  It is ‘natural man’. In 1 Cor. 2:14 Paul says, “But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.”

Our human condition can be compared to a drop of poison in a glass of water: all the water is poisoned but it is not as bad as it could be.  The water is incapable of being good.  We, too, are incapable of really being good.

When Jesus’ disciples asked Him who can be saved, He replied, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible,” (Matt. 19:26). That is why salvation rests in God alone by grace through faith (Eph. 2:8-9).

About now you are probably wondering what this has to do with witnessing.  Why do you need to know all this?  I am glad you asked.  It is helpful to know because you must realize it is God who saves people.  Specifically, it is the Holy Spirit who convicts the sinner of sin — not you.  “And He [the Holy Spirit], when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin, and righteousness, and judgment,” (John 16:8).

Remember, the gospel is preached after sin is made known.  Because the sinner cannot come to God on his own, he must be convicted of his sin, and thus be made aware of his need for salvation.  The conviction of sin is beyond our control.  It is the work of the Holy Spirit (John 16:8).

Prayer is essential in witnessing

It is, then, vital that you pray and request God to convict as well as save.  Prayer is an essential part of witnessing.  When you witness you must pray.  Then you are free to spread the gospel as effectively as you want and to trust God to give the increase (1Cor. 3:6-7).  Ask Him to send the Holy Spirit; ask Him to convict the world of sin.  The work of the Holy Spirit is essential in salvation.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit works in two types of people during witnessing: the saved and the unsaved.  In the saved, He dwells within (Rom. 8:11), teaches (John 14:26), anoints (1 John 2:27), guides (John 16:13), and sanctifies (1 Pet. 1:2).  Without the Holy Spirit we would be like ships without rudders, unable to live as Christians and certainly unable to witness effectively.

In the unsaved, He convicts of sin (John 16:8).  Sinners come to Jesus to have their sins cleansed. They do this after they discover their guilt before God.  This too is the work of the Holy Spirit.

Since the natural man is separated from God because of his sin (Isaiah 59:2), the Holy Spirit uses the Scriptures (that you quote) to convict him of his sinfulness, convince him of his need for salvation, and convert him through the Word.  When a natural man (or woman) is aware of his sinful condition then the gospel message of deliverance from sin is preached and becomes effectual.

Sin

Sin does two things: it offends God and it kills man.  How?  It offends God because it is His law we break.  It kills us because of the nature of Law. Have you ever heard of a law without a punishment? A law without a punishment is only a slogan.  Since God is just and laws have punishments, then God must punish the lawbreaker.  But that is not the end of the story.  God is also merciful and gracious.  His justice fell upon Himself — on the cross.  His mercy falls upon us — by grace through faith.

Justice, Mercy, and Grace

Imbedded in the relationship of Law and Gospel are the concepts of justice, mercy, and grace.  One of the best ways you can show the difference between them is to use illustrations that show their differences and relationships.  For example, Justice is getting what we deserve.  Mercy is not getting what we deserve.  Grace is getting what we don’t deserve.

Let’s suppose you have a bicycle and I want it.  So, one night I sneak over to your house and steal it.  You catch me and I go to jail.  (Jail would be where I “pay” for my crime of breaking the law.)  The penalty is met and that is justice.  I get what I deserve.

Let’s change it a little.  I sneak over to your house and steal your bike.  You catch me.  But you don’t send me to jail. Instead, you tell me to forget about it.  The penalty, jail, is not met.  That is mercy.  I did not get what I deserved.

One more change.  I sneak over to your house and steal your bike.  You catch me.  You don’t send me to jail.  In fact, you give me the bike plus a hundred dollars.  That is grace.  The penalty is met (by you paying the ‘damages’) and I was given what I did not deserve (the bike and money).

Justice, which demands payment, does not meet the requirement of mercy, which seeks forgiveness.  Mercy does not meet the requirement of justice. Grace meets both.

The Lamp Analogy 1

Let’s say I am at your house or apartment with my wife.  We are talking about church and in my zeal I accidentally knock over your lamp.  Now, this lamp is special.  A dear friend gave it to you and it has great sentimental value, and besides, you need a light in your room.  After a moment or two you realize that the damage is done and decide to forgive.  You say to me, “That is alright, Matt.  I forgive you for breaking the lamp, but give me ten dollars.”

Is asking for ten dollars after you’ve just forgiven me, true forgiveness?  Certainly not! When God forgives our sins, He says He will remember them no more (Jer. 31:34).  Forgive and forget are similar in spelling and similar in meaning.  If you forgive me can you demand payment from the one forgiven?  No, because a forgiven debt does not exist.

Let’s say that instead of asking me for ten dollars you turn to my wife and say, “Matt broke my lamp.  You give me ten dollars for it.”

I ask you again.  Is that true forgiveness?  No.  You are simply transferring the debt to someone who was not involved in the original offense.   But, we have a problem.  The lamp needs to be replaced.  In true forgiveness, then, who pays for its replacement?  (Think about this a bit before you go on to read the answer.)  Who pays?  You do!  You’re the only one left.  Remember, if you’ve forgiven me the debt, how can you demand payment?

Now, who was my offense against?  You.  Who forgives?  You do.  Who pays?  You do.

When we sin, who do we sin against? God.  Who forgives?  God.  Who pays?  God!  Did you get that?  God pays!  How does He do that?  Simple.  2000 years ago on a hill outside the city of Jerusalem He bore our sins in His body and died on the cross (1 Pet. 2:24).  He took our punishment: “Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried… He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him…” (Isaiah 53:4-5).

God is just.  God is merciful.  God is gracious.  In the justice of God, He took our place.  In the mercy of God we don’t get punished.  In the grace of God, He gives us eternal life.

Even though we are unworthy of salvation, even though we are unworthy of God’s love, even though we are unworthy of mercy, even though we are worthy of wrath, God saved us.  He did so not because of who we are, but because of who He is, not because of what we do, but because of what He did.  God is love (1 John 4:16).  God is holy (1 Peter 1:16).  God is good (Psalm 34:8).  We could never fathom the depths of His purity and kindness (Rom. 11:33).  We could never, through our own efforts, attain Him.  There is only one thing left for us.  We must worship Him, love Him, and serve Him.  He alone is worthy.  Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Prayers to Pray for Unbelievers

A friend asked the question: How do I pray for unbelievers? How do I pray effectively? I trust that every Christian regularly prays for family or friends or colleagues or neighbors who do not yet know the Lord. And while we can and must pray for matters related to their lives and circumstances, the emphasis of our prayers must always be for their salvation. Here are some ways the Bible can guide our prayers.

Prayers for Salvation

We begin with prayers for salvation. Each of these prayers seeks the same thing, but in a different way or from a different angle or using different language. Each of them is grounded in a specific text of Scripture.

Pray that God would circumcise their hearts. Circumcision was the Old Testament sign of entering into God’s covenant, of being God’s people. To have a circumcised heart symbolizes having a heart that is fully joined to God, fully submissive to him. “And the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your offspring, so that you will love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live” (Deuteronomy 30:6).

Pray that God would give them a heart of flesh. The Bible contrasts a heart of flesh, a heart that is alive and responsive to God, to a heart of stone, a heart that is cold and unyielding. Pray that God would work within these unbelievers to change their hearts. “And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh…” (Ezekiel 11:19).

Pray that God would put his Spirit within them. The great joy of salvation is being indwelled by God himself. Pray that God would grant this honor to those unbelievers, that he would choose to take up residence within them. “And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules” (Ezekiel 36:27).

Pray that they would come to Christ. If unbelievers are to come to salvation, there is just one way. They must come through Christ and Christ alone. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’” (John 14:6). Remember, too, that he is the one who calls them to come and to be relieved of the burden of their sin (see Matthew 11:28-30).

Pray that God would open their hearts to believe the gospel. Once more, God must initiate and people must respond. So pray that God would open the hearts of these unbelievers so they can in turn believe, just as Lydia did. “The Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul” (Acts 16:14).

Pray that God would free them from the slavery of sin. Unbelievers may believe they are free, but they are in fact enslaved. They are slaves of sin, bound by their sin and sinfulness. Pray that God would liberate them by his gospel. “But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed” (Romans 6:17).

Pray that God would remove Satan’s blinding influence . Unbelievers have been blinded by Satan and will only ever be able to see and appreciate the gospel if God works within them. So pray that God would give them sight—spiritual sight. “In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4).

Pray that God would grant them repentance. Unbelievers cannot repent without the enabling grace of God. So pray that God would grant them repentance, that this repentance would lead them to a knowledge of the truth. Pray as well that they would come to their senses and that they would escape from the devil’s snare. “God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will” (2 Timothy 2:25-26).

Prayers For You

You have prayed for unbelievers using different words and approaching from different angles. But you should also pray for yourself.

Pray that you will develop relationship with them. For people to be saved they must first hear the good news of the gospel. For them to hear the good news of the gospel, they must first encounter Christians—Christians like you. Pray that you would develop deeper, more significant relationship with them so you can, in turn, speak truth. “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?” (Romans 10:14).

Pray for opportunities to minister to them. Many people come to faith after seeing Christ’s loved displayed through the ministry of Christians. Pray for opportunities to minister to unbelievers so that your ministry can have an evangelistic effect. “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

Pray for them faithfully and persistently. Our temptation is to grow discouraged in prayer, to pray for a while and, when we see no visible results, to give up. But God calls us to persevere in prayer. “Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving” (Colossians 4:2). (See also the parable of the persistent widow in Luke 18:1-8.)

Pray for a burden to plead for their souls. Paul was willing to tell the church at Rome of his great longing to see the salvation of the lost. Do you share this deep longing? Pray that God would give you a great burden for souls. “Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved” (Romans 10:1).

Pray for boldness in generating and taking opportunities to speak the gospel. Even Paul longed for this boldness and for the confidence that he was speaking the right and best words. Pray that God would give you the boldness and, that when you take the opportunities, that he would then guide your words. “[Pray] also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel…” (Ephesians 6:19).

Pray for other believers to encounter them. God almost always uses a succession of people to share the gospel with people before they are saved. Pray, then, that God would lead other Christians into the lives of the unbelievers you love, that they too would provide an example of Christian living and that they too would speak the gospel. “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth” (1 Corinthians 3:6).

Other Prayers

Here are a few more biblical emphases to guide your prayers.

Pray that God would use any circumstance to do his work in them. We pray to a God who is sovereign and who sovereignly works his good will. Often he saves people through difficult circumstances, through bringing them to the very end of themselves. Pray, then, that God would arrange circumstances, whether easy or difficult, to lead them to salvation. “Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word” (Psalm 119:67). As you pray for the unbelievers you love, always pray to God: “your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).

Pray that God would extend his mercy to them. God assures us that he wishes for all people to turn to him in repentance and faith. He receives no joy from seeing people perish. Pray, then, that God would be glorified in the salvation of these people. “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

Pray with confidence. Finally, pray with confidence. God expects we will pray, God invites us to pray, God commands us to pray. Why? Because God loves to hear us pray and God loves to respond to our prayers. So as you pray for unbelievers, pray with confidence that God hears your prayers. “The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” (James 5:16).

How to Know I’m Really Saved? – Salvation through Jesus Christ

How do I know that Christ is in my life?Did you receive Christ into your life according to His promise in Revelation 3:20? “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”Knowing Jesus Christ is the most exciting relationship you can have. It is the beginning of a life of adventure with an all-loving, all-powerful God. If you have asked Christ to come into your life, you can be sure that your relationship with God is secure. As a result of Christ’s death on the cross, the only sufficient provision for a relationship with God, you have been completely forgiven and accepted by Him.There are many exciting things that are true in your relationship with Christ. Understanding these truths will help you build a firm foundation on which to grow.

My feelings about God keep changing

1. Feelings can be unreliable

You might have expectations about how you should feel after placing your trust in Christ. While feelings are important, they are unreliable indicators of your sincerity or the trustworthiness of God’s promise. Our feelings change easily, but God’s Word and His character remain constant. This illustration shows the relationship between fact (God and His Word), faith (our trust in God and His Word) and our feelings.

  • Fact – this chair is strong enough to support you.
  • Faith – You believe this chair will support you, so you sit in it.
  • Feeling- You may or may not feel comfortable in this chair, but it continues to support you.

The moment you received Christ by faith, as an act of your will, many things happened, including the following:

  1. Christ came into your life – Revelation 3:20, Colossians 1:27
  2. Your sins were forgiven – Colossians 1:14
  3. You became a child of God – John 1:12
  4. You received eternal life – John 5:24
  5. You began the great adventure for which God created you – John 10:10, 2 Corinthians 5:17, 1 Thessalonians 5:18

2. Dealing with doubts

Even though feelings are important, your relationship with Christ is based on facts, not on feelings that can change daily. Doubts, questions and varying emotions are common parts of everyone’s life, but they are very unreliable gauges of anyone’s relationship with Christ. The Christian lives by faith in the trustworthiness of God and His Word.

But what if you don’t feel like a Christian tomorrow? Place your faith in the faithfulness of God Himself and the trustworthiness of His Word. The more you learn, the more you will be able to answer any doubts with solid facts. Your feelings will begin to respond to the truth of God’s Word and not to your circumstances.

Since you have trusted in Christ’s payment for your sin, understood the basis of your relationship with God and have learned five truths about your relationship, you can be confident in your relationship with Christ.

Spiritual Hunger for God

There is hunger placed inside of us that is never satisfied. We call it thirst and hunger for material things, ambition and success in work and relationships. But if we grow the things do not satisfy us any more. We can read all the philosophers on the subject of meaning of life and afterwards. But the hunger remains. This is a hunger for relationship. Relationship with God and Jesus. Jesus is the way for us in life. Jesus is the Truth as we experience relationship with Him. And He is Life.

Sin is the first thing that separates you from God.

Do you know your Sins have been forgiven by Jesus?

 

Bible declares that All men are sinners

All men have sinned and come short of the glory of God. If we say that we have no Sin, we deceive ourselves. Jesus came in flesh into this world for you can have through His death and resurrection total freedom from Sin. Jesus shed His precious Blood for your justification. If you pray your knowledge of God is released. Because you shall receive the Holy Spirit that reveals God to you.

Jesus shed His Holy Blood for you to have the Promice of God – The Eternal Life. Jesus is the Son of God and through Him we have access to God, because Jesus is the only way to Heaven and the only way to God.

Do you know that Divine Exchange happened on the Cross on the moment Jesus died on the Cross?

Jesus was punished for we can be forgiven. Our Sin was on Jesus for we shall receive healing. Jesus was made Sin for we shall receive righteousness. Jesus tasted death for us that we shall see the life and Eternal life. Jesus was made a curse for we may shall receive the Blessing of Abraham. Jesus became poor for we shall be rich. And He took our shame that we shall see the Glory. All accomplished on the cross for You.

If you give Jesus your life. You shall receive Eternal Life. And by giving yourself fully. With your whole being. If you do this.He will start to use you for the Glory of God

Do you know what is burning in the God’s Heart Today?

 

Salvation by Grace, not of human merit and works.

Mercy and Grace are the Love and Compassion of God towards us. In our trespasses God Love you so much that he sent His Son into this world to die on the Cross. And finish the work for what He came into the world – Save the humanity. Through Him the Grace and Truth came into the world. Jesus is Grace and Truth and the Salvation is possible only by Faith in Jesus. You are burning in the God’s Heart today to receive Jesus or renew your relationship with Him. Receive His Love, His Grace and His Holy Spirit. That is Real Salvation.

Salvation through Jesus – Believe in Jesus

If you believe in Jesus you have inheritance in heaven and you receive God’s Promise – The Eternal Life. Jesus is a door to Eternal Life without Him you perish forever. Jesus Himself said „I am the Resurrection and Life whosoever believeth in Me shall never taste death“. Please listen carefully: That is your way to Eternal Life: Faith in Jesus. Just Believe and pray.


Enter the Prayer of Salvation with your heart.
Bible declares you are saved. This is a confirmation from the written word. If you start to speak in tongues. Be sure you have been baptised with the Holy Ghost. If there are no tongues. Bible declares still that you are saved and born again. They come later for confirmation of Baptism.
