Romans Road to Salvation

Today's Word - Romans Road to Salvation imageIn the book of John Jesus and Nicodemus had a whole conversation about being born again.

Nicodemus even questioned about entering his mother’s womb again because he was confused about being born again.

Then, Jesus so lovingly explained to Nicodemus that it wasn’t a physical rebirth, but a spiritual rebirth.

That means because humans are wretched and wicked hearted because of the original sin of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden at the time of the Creation:

  1. You must be born of the Spirit and of water.
  2. That means the next thing to do is, vocally expressing that you believe and accept Jesus as your Savior.
  3. However, to move forward with your being born again, you must sincerely repent of (turn away and not go back to) all sin in your life.
  4. Also, by profession of your faith, being baptized with immersion in water.
  5. Living a life reflecting Jesus Christ.
    1. So, you would then need to find a Bible believing, preaching, and teaching church family to be a part of to help you grow in our faith.
  6. At some point, it would be good to grown enough (spiritually maturing) in your faith to the point that you also share the gospel (basically, what I’m doing here, in a way) to lead others to the saving grace of Jesus as their Savior.

The scripture image is the Romans Road to Salvation, which is used widely by many Christians to help a person become saved and reborn.

Where do you stand? I’ve left this post sparse on purpose. It’s meant to cause you to question your faith as well as to ask questions to get clarity and if you’re not born again, to hopefully lead you to be born again.

A Practical Prophet

Micah 6_8 image

Micah tells of Yahweh’s expectations of we humans.

Known as the “practical prophet,” Micah states plainly what God expects of man: to do rightly of others, to love kindness, and to live humbly with & obey Yahweh. His plain and effective communication gained esteem and honor.

We all have expectations, of ourselves and each others. Think about it. How do your expectations line up with Yahweh’s?

We’re very busy making ourselves what we want. What about what Yahweh wants? How are we busy with making ourselves line up with Yahweh? Or, are we at all?

Living rightly, being kind, and living humbly obeying Yahweh will bring more blessings into our lives than we can imagine. We need to get vertically aligned with Yahweh. How do we do that?

Here’s what scripture says:

Galatians 5:16-18 So I tell you: Live by following the Spirit. Then you will not do what your sinful selves want. Our sinful selves want what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit wants what is against our sinful selves. The two are against each other, so you cannot do just what you please. But if the Spirit is leading you, you are not under the law.

The key to living in spiritual alignment is to remove anything satan uses to control you. I know, it sounds complicated. However, it’s not.

Some tools to help:

  • Get into The Word
  • Prayer works wonders (sincerely spending time with Yahweh and asking Him to lead you and use you, not the other way around.)
  • Praise & Worship
  • Fellowship with like-minded believers

Where do you find yourself today? Apply these tools and let go of your human nature wants that aren’t in line with Yahweh. How’s that working for you?

Disciple Making

Matthew 28:27-29 image

Surely, this is a Great Commission! The principal verb of command in the original language isn’t “go” but “make disciples.” Accomplishing the Great Commission commands us to be making disciples, not just deciders. It means baptizing believers and to teach them to obey all Christ commanded. Obedience is the purpose of Christ’s Great Commission. Only doers of His word are true disciples (Matt. 7:21; John 8:31).

There’s a different way that this is a Great Commission. Originally, Jesus told His disciples to go just to “the lost sheep of Israel” (Matt. 10:6). Except now He charges them to go to all the nations (ethnic groups). With faithful disciples in barely half of the twenty-four thousand “nations,” an enormous amount continues to be done in achieving this Great Commission.

Do you agree this sounds like a “mission impossible”? It would be if it weren’t for Christ’s promise to be with those who go and make disciples in all nations. With the command is the promise. His attendance makes it achievable.

Who’s ready to accept the “mission impossible” challenge? If not, why? What’s holding you back? What’s stopping you?

His Gift: Good Works Through Salvation by His Grace

Ephesians 2:8-10 image
We were made to do His Good Work. His Gift of salvation makes us who we are.

We are unable in and of ourselves to save ourselves. There’s not one iota we can do to save ourselves.

Because of our salvation, we do good works. We do it because we want to; not because we have to. We hunger for it!

How does that look in your life? Comment, let’s chat about it.

Yahweh’s Mercy

Jonah 4:2 image
Jonah is the best known of the Minor Prophets, probably because of the whale tale. Except that the intent of the book is not about the whale but about the unsympathetic prophet. Jonah was a prophet sent to inform a Gentile nation. However, he ran away! Why?

Jonah ran away from Yahweh’s call because he knew what the God of Israel was really like! It’s true, whether or not you agree. Why, if he went and informed those idolatrous Gentiles, Yahweh might save them! To Jonah, they were the enemy. No doubt, Yahweh would not save them!

Because of a second chance, Jonah went, resentfully. And just like Yahweh said would happen, Nineveh repented. Yahweh advised. And Jonah was mad. In v. 11 Yahweh asked, “Shouldn’t I feel sorry for this important city, Nineveh?” Yahweh loves pagan city-dwelling Ninevites.

Do we? Like Jonah, we may know Yahweh is “gracious, merciful, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness.” How are we reflecting His heart toward the hated and violent “Ninevites” in our towns? How are we fulfilling His appeal to go to them and teach His word of repentance and forgiveness?

But wait! How can we fulfill His appeal to us to go to the pagans and teach His word of repentance and forgiveness while we’re like Jonah running away? We need to stop running away and stand up for Yahweh and His Good News of the Gospel.
