‘And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”’ (Luke 19:9-10)
“…For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” (Romans 3:23)
We are lost without salvation.
There are two kinds of people in the world: those who are saved, and those who are lost.
“Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.” (Psalm 51:5)
If we were all born as sinners, how can we be saved? Should we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour?
This is not the kind of invitation that the Holy Spirit is making, because it’s easy to lift up your hands and say that you accept Him.
So what should you do?
You first need to convert to God; to become affiliated with him. This means that you make a 180-degree turn in your life. If you were living a lifestyle that is sinful in Gods eyes— promiscuity, stealing, slandering etc.—you stop. It is difficult and it demands sacrifice, but the end result is worth it. Get a bible and get baptised, as you feel comfortable to do so. God bless you.
