 Thought For Today -January 23 
 Are You Saved?

    Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. Christ Jesus came into the world to save me, and Christ Jesus came into the world to save you. Are you saved? If you cannot say with absolute assurance that you are saved, and know for sure that you will go to heaven when you die, then it is absolutely true, according to the teaching of the Holy Scriptures, the Holy Bible, that you are still lost, and if you are still lost when you die, you will spend eternity in hell forever, with all its' misery and torments, separated from all that is pure and lovely, and righteous, apart from the presence of God forever.
    The apostle Paul, writing to Timothy said: "This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners: of whom I am chief." 1 Timothy 1: 15 If the apostle Paul declared himself to be chief of sinners, where does that leave each of us? This should convince each of us that we also are lost sinners and need a savior.
    We have a savior provided for us if we will believe him ; accept him and believe his word ,when he through the scriptures, warns us of our fate if we make the wrong choices concerning him.
"As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one: there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable: there is none that doeth good, no, not one." Romans 3: 10-12 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3: 23
    God in his love for us has offered us a remedy for this condition by offering us by his mercy and grace, his own righteousness through Christ. "Therefore, by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets, even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe:" Romans 3: 20-22
Otherwise: if we refuse God's offer of salvation through Christ - then: "The wages of sin is death. But ,the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23. If we choose to receive wages for our sinful works, then we receive eternal death; but, if we would rather rely on the free gift of God, and denounce our sinful works and our own righteousness as "filthy rags", and acknowledge that Christ paid our sin debt with his blood and sacrifice for us, then we are freely given life eternal.
"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lifted up: that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, that his deeds should be reproved; but he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." John 3: 14-21
"    He that believeth on the son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." John 3: 36 "If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:10 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9
How about it? Are you saved? Will you choose life or death? Will you choose light or darkness? Will you choose Christ or the Devil?
