Then he brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.”Acts 16:30-31
The Salvation of Christ
Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ! That is what it takes to be saved, to be a believer. You must believe. Believe that God is who He says He is. Believe that Jesus is who He claimed to be. Believe that Jesus did what He said He would do. According to Dictionary.com, the word believe means “to have confidence in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right in doing so.” To be saved, one must have confidence in the truth of the gospel, the existence of God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and the reliability of the salvation of Christ. One must believe without visible proof. To believe is to be absolutely sure that Jesus saves.
Do you believe today? Do you have full confidence in the gospel today? Pray and ask God to strengthen your faith everyday when you have doubts. Salvation is a sure thing, and to believe is to know Christ as your Savior.
