How To Be Saved-Part 5

April 23, 2014


When God is speaking to your heart and urging you and wooing you do not push that away. Do not say, “I will wait for a more convenient time.” Listen, my friend, hell is filled with people who were going to wait for a more convenient time. What you need to do is say, “Yes, Lord!”  When God is wooing you this is the Holy Spirit handing you the gift of salvation. He’s handing you the ability to receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith, but when you push it away or get distracted, or you’re not paying attention you do what is called, “quenching the Holy Spirit.” Let me ask you, “How many times have you quenched the Holy Spirit?” Then my friend, for many years you have quenched saving faith. Don’t’ do that!  Right now, if you know God is speaking to you, the Holy Spirit is wooing you, bow your head and pray this prayer in faith and receive God’s free gift of salvation:

Dear God,
I know that I am a sinner.
I know that I need a Savior.
I put all my trust (saving faith) in this fact alone,
Jesus died for me personally on the cross.
I believe (saving faith) that with all my heart.
I am asking you right now to come into my heart and save me.
Thank you for saving me.
In Jesus name I pray.  Amen!
