Scripture: “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We observed his glory, the glory as the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth “John 1:14.
1. Jesus gave us access to His glory.
We don’t deserve access to God’s glory and we can’t earn access to God’s glory. Access to God and His glory is a gift that comes through a relationship with Jesus.
2. Jesus is our only hope.
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
The Gospel is the good news that Jesus came to save us, heal us and set us free. Our sin separated us from God and His glory but through a relationship with Jesus we have access to God and His glory.
3. Jesus did not take any shortcuts.
Jesus came full of grace and truth. Jesus did not ignore our sins but paid the penalty for our sins on the Cross so that we could be saved and set free.
Scripture tells us that “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved (Romans 10:9).
If you have never prayed to receive Jesus Christ then you can pray today to receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior. You can pray a prayer similar to the one below from your heart to God.
PRAYER: God, I confess that I have sinned and I need your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He died for me so that I could be forgiven and have a relationship with you. I confess that I can’t do anything to earn this gift of salvation. I put my hope fully in Jesus and his death and resurrection on the Cross and receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus Name, Amen.
If you prayed this prayer or a prayer similar to this one today then God saved you today! You are forever saved and nothing can separate you from God and His great love for you!
