Call on Jesus

Call upon Jesus Today - Be Saved

Fourth, Call on Jesus Today 

Romans 10:9,10, & 13 says,  “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. . . . .For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” 

It almost seems too simple, yet the Bible says we must be like little children to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 

· Do you see what the verses say?  To believe is to give up your life to Him because He gave His life for you.  He only wants the best for you.  Being His servant is to be free from the bondage of sin.  You will have a new  yoke, a bondage of love to Jesus. 

· Wouldn’t you be willing to just tell Jesus that you will surrender your life to him today and let Him come into your heart to take control? 

· Great!  If Jesus would take you just like you are, would you take Him?  You will do it won’t you?  He will make the changes but you must give him all!  Don’t hold back!  It’s all or nothing! 

· So, simply bow your head and say a prayer something like this, as you picture placing your life in God’s hands now and forever: 

“Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and deserve hell for my sins.  I believe that you died for me and rose from the dead the third day and am willing to surrender all my life to you right now.  Take away all my sins!  Take me to heaven when I die.  I now receive you as my Lord and Savior.  Thank-you for saving me!  In Jesus Name I pray, Amen!”  (Listen)

If you could know the joy of pardon

If you could know the peace it brings,

When Jesus speaks, divine forgiveness,

The saddest heart with rapture sings.

I know your heart would then adore Him.

I know His voice you would obey.

He calls you now with tender pleading,

Obey His voice, and follow Him today.

Now, according to the Bible you are Justified, or made JUST AS IF I NEVER SINNED!  Romans 5:1  “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:” , and also God promises to present us FAUTLESS before Him in Heaven:    Jude 1:24 “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy”

So based upon these verses we can know that we have eternal life as it says here:  1 John 5:13-15  “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.  (14)  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:  (15)  And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”

He saves completely and makes intersession for all believers.  Hebrews 7:25  “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”

He gives immortality – 2 Timothy 1:10  “But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:”

He removes the condemnation for sin – Romans 8:1  “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

You just passed from death unto life – John 5:24  “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

He frees from Satan’s death and a lifetime of bondage – Hebrews 2:14-15  “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;  (15)  And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”
