Jesus Christ for Christian Salvation

He stands at the door knocking

Saved by Grace

In Christian theology, grace has been defined as "the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it", "the condescension or benevolence shown by God toward the human race". It is understood by Christians to be a spontaneous gift from God to man - "generous, free and totally unexpected and undeserved" - that takes the form of divine favor, love and clemency.

It is an attribute of God that is most manifest in the salvation of sinners. Christian orthodoxy taught that the initiative in the relationship of grace between God and an individual is always on the side of God. Once God has reached out in this "first grace" or "prevenient grace," each person may accept or reject this grace. The Calvinist doctrine known as irresistible grace states that, since all persons are by nature spiritually dead, no one desires to accept this grace until God spiritually enlivens them by means of regeneration. God regenerates only individuals whom he has predestined to salvation.

This Our Age of Grace - Jesus Our King

Just to be honest, Jesus my Lord is like a brother but to be honest, like no other. Unlike my blood brothers that I know do sin, Jesus my Lord Brother is pure within.

God our Father I have learned to love and to fear, although He sent His Son to die for me. I can’t quite know the Father as I know Jesus the Son that very much lives inside of me.

He walks beside me and has the understanding of life’s temptations, having been here to understand.

I confess to Our Father knowing it is required for His forgiveness, but I can talk openly to Jesus knowing He will go to Our Father with understanding for me.

I know He knows my appreciation of the walk He took here on earth just to understand our weaknesses and need of salvation from Him.

He knows I hurt thinking of all the abuse and pain, knowing His own Father sent Him to perish that we have life everlasting.

Just Closer Walk With Him

Salvation

A definition of the Christian doctrine of salvation would be “The deliverance, by the grace of God, from eternal punishment for sin which is granted to those who accept by faith God’s conditions of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus.” Salvation is available in Jesus alone (John 12:6 Acts 4:12) and is dependent on God alone for provision, assurance, and security.


By His blood I am saved; by His stripes I am healed

He withstood all this for me and the pouring out of His blood for my sin and stripes on His body for my healing; even realizing Our Father sent His Son for me. Is it just the Age of Grace and meant to be, for I know scriptures tell me of a group in the end that the Father Himself will gather in His arms Himself. Is this after this time or Age of Grace has passed? The ones left behind but refuse the mark of the beast? For they must refuse or spend eternity in hell. It would such a hard decision to make even knowing what eternity of hell would be.

We have seen the many Christians slaughtered in the past few months and surely they had the Holy Spirit of Christ to see them through such a horrible time.

I believe it will be so and for these the battle will be great. I pray all see now and receive Christ in the Age of Grace while his blood covers us and all we do is invite him into our hearts in His grace this merciful time, rather than spill our own and those we love left behind.

So I know our God is a loving and a merciful God but in this Age of Grace is it wrong to lean on Jesus for my comfort, feeling a kin with my Savior? This is the time of the body of Christ, we are that body, and we are a part of Him.

We talk a lot and He reminds me often I should stand on His word and in the end, if I am without a friend I will have no fear, for He will be there with arms stretched out knowing Him and walking with Him. He will take me to Our Father so I may understand His love as much as His Son’s.

Simple salvation scriptures

1 John 5:11-12 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. The one who has the Son has this eternal life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this eternal life.

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 it is not of works, so that no one can boast.

Titus 3:5-7 he saved us, not by works of righteousness that we have done but on the basis of his mercy, through the washing of the new birth and the renewing of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us in full measure through Jesus Christ our Savior. 7 And so, since we have been justified by his grace, we become heirs with the confident expectation of eternal life.

Romans 4:1-5 What then shall we say that Abraham, our ancestor according to the flesh, has discovered regarding this matter? 2 For if Abraham was declared righteous by the works of the law, he has something to boast about (but not before God). 3 For what does the scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” 4 Now to the one who works, his pay is not credited due to grace but due to obligation. 5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous, his faith is credited as righteousness.

Romans 4:25 He was given over because of our transgressions and was raised for the sake of our justification.

2 Corinthians 5:21 God made the one who knew no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we would become the righteousness of God.

1 Peter 3:18 Because Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, to bring you to God, by being put to death in the flesh but by being made alive in the spirit.

John 1:12 But to all who have received him--those who believe in his name--he has given the right to become God's children

John 3:16-18 For this is the way God loved the world: he gave his one and only Son that everyone who believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through him. 18 The one who believes in Him is not condemned. The one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.

Thank you. I have always wondered if that was wrong to feel that way but I just do, Jesus is my closest friend, Thx for agreeing.


mrxsmoker 6 years ago

I agree too. He's the first one I say good morning to, he drives with me in my truck and he watches over me when I sleep. You're right, now is the time to ask him into our hearts to save us and forgive our sins.

Wonderful article and Merry Christmas to you.

Thank you so much, I was so afraid some may not get my meaning but I relate to Jesus my Lord and have the closeness and ability to share with Him as a brother understanding how hard life can be sometimes and not so easy to be perfect. He did it and I can only try with His help. Merry Christmas to you too.

"I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him." (John 14:6-9)

Bro. you know the Father if you know Jesus..

God did not come,we cannot in the flesh even look upon Him, he sent his Son and I think for the very reason he could know us and because there had to be a shedding of blood to cover our sins, that is how we got in, The Church, Christian (body of Christ) the time we are in now is an age of Grace. In the end after Jesus has come for His body(the Christians) the age of grace will be over and God Himself will take them in His arms that will have to shed their own blood resisting and not taking the mark of the beast. Yes I know there is Father, Son and Holy Spirit but there also is a difference. Is God the one praying and crying to God to deliver Him from this he knew had to happen to Him but then saying "but thy Will be done." The bible is very deep, I am in the age of grace and Jesus died for me, I cannot help He is my friend in a different way,nor am I sorry, God looks at the Jew as his Chosen, does that bother me? Of course not. We are getting the crumbs from the table and I do thank God for that. I simply say what is in my heart, I look at God as The Father, the Father who loves me but will also judge us all one day and our hearts, or soul,I feel sure He understands me. I understand what you are saying but this is the way it is for me. Jesus was tempted so he understand temptation, etc..God has never been tempted...it could go on and on and that is what makes study so good.

Wow. I love this hub and you have it so right. There is no love like the Father's love. I do not want to ever be without Him in my life. I have to work on me constantly because the wicked one does not want us to put our faith and trust in Him.

Thank you for this hub and God Bless you!
