Yes, It is that Simple!
Saturday, February 4
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
As I come to the last day of devotions regarding John 14:6, I realize that maybe you are reading this passage and wondering how someone comes to the Father through Jesus.
Paul answers this question in Romans 10 verse 9. It says: “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Yes, it is that simple.
Jesus did all the work for our salvation!
All we are required to do is for us to declare with our mouths that Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead.
Now, walking each day in this salvation is both rewarding and at the same time, a struggle as we contend with our old nature. However, praise God 1st John 1:9 promises us that “if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” When we sin God graciously and amazingly forgives us.
Thank the Lord, we are given the Holy Spirit to assist us in our daily struggle. May you walk right next to Jesus, holding His hand and letting Him guide you.
Prayer for the Day: Dear Lord, please send Your Holy Spirit to give us wisdom and understanding so we may grow deeper in love with You. Help us to let go of our preconceived ideas of who You are and embrace You as the true Savior of us all we pray in Jesus name – Amen.
Personal Prayer: “Lord Jesus, You ask – “Who do you say that I am?” Lord, open my mind so I can understand who You are, and who I am in You.”
