CALL ON HIM

CALL ON HIM

Romans 10:13 (NKJV) For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”

What a short and sweet verse.  So many want to make salvation so complicated, yet this verse puts it out there so simply.  Call on Jesus and you shall be saved.  God does not want us jumping through hoops.  He wants us to enjoy the fullness of life that He has provided to everyone who believes on Jesus.

You see, salvation is a gift, and like any gift, if we refuse to receive it, we will not enjoy it.  But if we receive it, then we can open the package and enjoy all the benefits of it.  And what amazing benefits there are in Jesus!  Salvation means more than going to heaven when we die.  Thank God for that, and we will rejoice for all eternity in this, but if you are like me, you are still living in the here and now, and I need help now to live every day.

This word “salvation” is from the Greek word “sozo,” and it means to save, deliver or protect, to heal, preserve, to do well, and to be made whole.  Wow!  So we see that God has a lot more in store for us.  He cares about us spiritually, mentally, and physically.  Our Father made sure that Jesus would suffer for each part of our lives at the cross.  His thorns were for our peace, the stripes on His back were for our physical healing, and His death and resurrection was for our eternal life.  God is so good!

So today, when you hear the word salvation, or when you say, “Thank God that I am saved!” take it a little farther and say, “Thank God that I am saved and I going to heaven when I die or the trumpet sounds, and thank God that I am healed, I am delivered, and I have God’s peace in my life!  Jesus bore all the bad for me so I could have all the good!”

CONFESSION:  Today, I declare that I am healed, and that I am set free from every addiction that would come against me.  I declare that I have God’s peace in my life, and that God has restored all that the enemy has stolen from me.  Today, I am saved because of the blood of Jesus, my Lord and Savior.
