God In Your Life

It Is Written, Galatians 5:22-23, but the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering,                ( patience ) kindness, and goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
Have you ever wondered about whether you are saved or not? Many people do. Some unfortunately still think they can earn their way to Heaven with good works. That creates a problem, because how many good works would it take?
Jesus made it simple. He made it so that we are saved by the grace of God, and not by any works we do. He gave us the written Word, a book of instructions on how to get to Heaven.
satan wants people to believe that God would not send people to Hell, regardless of the life they lead. This is just a variation of how he deceived Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve found out about satan's deception, when It was too late.
God does not send people to Hell. People choose for themselves by rejecting Jesus and His Word. You make the choice, so choose well.
It is possible to accept the existence of Jesus in your head but not have Him in your heart. A good way to tell if you are saved is easy. If you said the prayer of salvation with your heart, you received the Holy Spirit and the fruits of the Spirit.
If you meditate on today's verse, and compare it to your life, and read the Word of God, you can be pretty sure you are saved, if you are exercising those fruits. Salvation only comes through Jesus.
Remember this fact. Believing in Jesus is not enough, even satan believes in Him. You can never grow in your faith if you don't have an ongoing relationship with God. As I've said many times before, the closer you get to God, the closer He will get to you. At that point there will be no doubt in your mind about whether you are saved or not. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
