For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. (Eph 2:8-9 NKJ)
You are saved if you have put your trust in God for salvation through Jesus Christ! If you believe that Jesus took your place on the cross, that God raised him from the dead and that He is alive and is your Lord! You are saved! You are no more bound to the deceitfulness of sin, you have been rescued from the consequences of sin, you have been reconciled with God! All this is a gift! Although you did not deserve it, you have it.
It is always a good thing to remember that you have peace with God! You are on God’s side and God is on your side, working to make you all that He designed you to be.
This truth may seem simple to those who know it but I know how hard it can be when the enemy keeps telling you that because you are not “perfect” you are not saved! That because you sinned last week you are not a child of God! Remember this verse! You are saved by grace, it’s not because of your efforts. It’s a gift from God. The proof of it is the working of the Holy Spirit within you to make you “perfect” in Him.
Thanks you heavenly father for the gift of Salvation! I am so glad that Jesus paid for my sins. I am free! Praise be to you my father! Please help me to always rejoice in this truth. May I never take this freedom for granted. May I always remember how much it cost to get me this salvation. I pray in Jesus Name.
I am saved! God has given me the gift of salvation.
