What is the Prayer of Salvation? @Thus Says My Lord

Prayer of Salvation or "Salvation Prayer", is a simple prayer which that help us realize our sin, the punishment of sin and the only way to get redemption. By faith we pray this prayer and see transformation from God in our life. The biblical method of salvation is faith in Jesus Christ.

All have sinned, and in this way death came to all men...Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned [Romans 5:12]

Lord is a good God and hence made an option for us to be redeemed from our sin and receive our redemption, our salvation.

Accepting Jesus as our Savior and reading this prayer aloud with faith, will activate a new life in you. Say this prayer with the faith that Lord dies for me and that he is the only way through we get the salvation in your life. He has taken all the punishments that we were supposed to face because of our sins, but with the death of Jesus Christ for us we are delivered of this punishment. We have received victory over all our problems and sickness through our Lord Jesus Christ.


Heavenly Father, I come into your presence humbly, accepting myself as a sinner and that you had come to this world to save me. As your word says:

"That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." [Romans 10:9]

Father God... I take your word and I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, and that You have raised Him from the dead, to save me. I accept Jesus Christ as my personal and only Savior. 

Thank you for coming into my heart and filling me with your presence and giving me your Holy spirit.I believe and receive my Salvation.

Amen...

God is a Loving God, full of Grace and Mercy.. Accept this Lord as your personal Savior and experience a changed life... I thanks God for giving this opportunity to share this prayer with you...



Reciting a prayer, including this salvation prayer, just cannot save anyone of us. If you want to receive the salvation that is available through Jesus, place your faith in Him completely.Completely rely on Him alone as your Savior.

Teaching on Romans Road


Romans Road or Road to Romans are the teaching based on the book of Romans. There are many verse within this that can be taken up as a path to be followed to get salvation. I specially like this for the simplicity, although Bible is a simple book to read and understand if we have faith on the words... especially the following verses which will be highlighted as part of the Road to Romans or Romans Road. 

Very simple yet powerful verses... Following 3 verses helps us summarize what the Book of Romans is trying to say to us about our life, what we are and the salvation.. how to get it.

The first step in the "Romans Road" or "Road to Romans"
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God... [Romans 3:23]

Who knows God?

This is a very important question we should ask to ourselves. Who knows God? 

Because if you know who knows God, then its easy to get to that person and him to introduce you to God, and start building a relationship. We had seen this in our daily life also, when we want to approach a person, with whom we would need some favor. If that person is not know to us we find a person close to us who knows him, and then approach him and ask him to get us to the main person whose help we actually require. Once we are introduced to this person. Next time probably someone close to you may approach you to have them introduced to this main person with whom you had recently started building the relationship.

Our christian life is a similar scenario where we have ourselves and God.

A Lamp that burns and gives light to others

John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light.
[John 5:35]

A Lamp is known to everyone especially in the interior villages where they cannot imagine a day without a lamp especially in the night times. Even to us in the cities also we have a revised version of lamp which we call as candles. Now a days power cut is a normal scenario, and if its during night times then the first thing we go look for is a candle or lamp if we have one. I remember my parents buying a small lamp model in my childhood. IT was very similar to the one we see in villages. It needed fuel (kerosene) to burn, which we use to fill everyday as we have power cut regularly.

The verse in context also talks about a lamp and the use of it especially the heat (burned) and vision (light) that others around that lamp got. Now based on the above explanations we can highlight few words which are Lamp, Light, Fuel and Night. All these are very common words and we in our daily life either experience or talk about it. Have we ever tried to link all these and understand the deeper knowledge and revelation that these words have in them. Let me try to help you understand as per my knowledge.

Significance of the birth of Baby Jesus

Jesus Christ KING of Kings and LORD of Lords, our Redeemer and Savior who gave us a new life through his sacrifice and made a way to salvation, was born as a normal baby to a very normal family (Joseph the carpenter and his wife Mary). 
Birth of Christ as a baby was taken as a very normal news around Joseph and Mary. I assume that it would be very similar to a baby being born for us in our family. We all receive that child with happiness but other take it as another birth of child to the world.

Jesus Christ's Mission

Every person has some mission in his/her life and its good to have a mission in life. If we don't have one now.. make sure we get one soon, else this life will only go in waste. Mission is also part of the profile of any new company or organization, which define why is the group there in existence. Actually any thing existing in this world is with a mission, knowingly or unknowingly.


I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
[John 10:10]


Same was the scenario with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He had come to this world, died and risen after 3 days... all these with a very specific mission. It was to save us from the punishment of our sins, and show us the way of salvation, to help us get eternal life.
