Salvation is a gift that is made available to those who repent, believe and confess that Jesus is Lord and that He died and rose
from the dead to save mankind (Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10). This gift cannot be earned through good deeds or by simply being
"good" (Ephesians 2:8; 1 Timothy 1:9). It is a matter of faith (acting out on what you believe according to God's Word

Pray this prayer:
Heavenly Father, I (your name) come to You in the Name of Jesus. Your Word says, "Whosoever shall call in the name of the
Lord shall be saved" (Acts 2:21). I am calling on You. I pray and ask Jesus to come into my heart and be Lord over my life
according to Romans 10:9-10. "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God
hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." I do that now. I confess that Jesus is Lord, and I believe in my heart that
God raised Him from the dead. From this day on I commit my life to you and I invite you Jesus to be the Lord of my Life,
We welcome you to the Family of God!

The Blessing of Salvation
Sin is the obstacle that makes for war between man and God. When sin is taken care of by faith in Christ Jesus and
justification, the cause of the war is removed and peace begins. Every believer has made his or her peace with God through the
blood of Jesus and the cross. The war is ended, the enmity gone. Peace reigns in the heart.
Patience, better translated “endurance.” Endurance is a result of testing, or being tried and not being found wanting. Without
suffering there is little possibility that endurance will be attained. And without endurance, character is not developed and
hope—if it exists at all—is weak.
We are justified by Christ’s blood. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin (Heb 9:22). The life is in the
blood, and the blood makes atonement for the soul (Lev. 17:11). We are also reconciled to God by Christ’s death and saved by
His life. We are reconciled by the humbled Christ and saved by the exalted Christ. The dying Christ was testator who left us a
legacy; the living Christ is the executor who dispenses it.
Finally, in these passages apostle Paul delineates two opposite states of existence, life versus death. In Adam there is sin and
death; in Christ there is righteousness and life. In Christ, Adam’s situation, which we have inherited, is reversed. Instead of
death and condemnation there is justification and eternal life. The comparison is not precise, because grace far exceeds man’s
sin and condemnation.
Some ecumenical teachers have falsely interpreted Rom. 5:18 as teaching universalism, the doctrine that all men will be saved
is false to its core. The false interpretation that takes the analogy and presses it beyond what Paul meant, by saying that as in
Adam all men sinned and lost everything, so in Christ all men gain what they lost in Adam, is false. Nevertheless, Paul does
say that God’s redemption grace in Christ is freely offered to all and is certainly efficacious for those who believe.
Adam was our common father, the root and representative of all men. What he did may be said to have been done by us in
him. By this one man sin entered the human race. Christ the mediator acted as a public person, a common agent, and the
head of all the elect—inasmuch as he dealt with God by his redemption for all of us who are his people. If guilt and wrath can
be communicated, so can grace and love. If there is power and efficacy in the sin of man, there is greater righteousness and
grace of Jesus Christ.
Adam’s sin was in disobedience. How dumb can a person be, that he could not even tell his wife Eve what God instructed,
probably before she was created, not to near that tree. What he did was evil because it was forbidden by God. By God’s judicial
act we are made sinners along with Adam, for we are his posterity. The figure follows that through the obedience and the
righteousness of Jesus Christ many are made righteous. The free gift comes upon all who believe. The free gift is freely proffered
to all who believed in Christ Jesus.
By God’s grace righteousness has been imputed for justification to all who believe and implanted in us for sanctification—and
all of this through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
