In Touch Daily Devotional 26 July 2022 MESSAGE
If we hope to resist the Enemy’s schemes, it is important to clear up any confusion regarding salvation. So let’s consider three crucial steps of the conversion process.
1. We must know something. The first step is that we must grasp what our condition was, apart from the Savior. Ephesians 2:1 makes it clear that, left to ourselves, we were all spiritually dead. Without the sacrifice of Jesus, there wouldn’t be eternal life for anyone.
2. We must believe something. The good news is that God provided a means of salvation that is open to all people. Scripture explains that our loving heavenly Father, of His own initiative, made a way for our sin debt to be paid so we could dwell with Him forever (Ephesians 2:4-9).
3. We must receive something. In order to claim any gift, we must first open our hands and receive it. The Father is reaching out to mankind, offering His free gift of salvation. Once we have taken it, it is ours to keep—forever (Romans 10:8-13).
Are you a believer who is empowered by God’s Spirit and completely confident about salvation? Then you are a force to be reckoned with! If you have known, believed, and received God’s gift of salvation, you can stand in full assurance today.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Isaiah 15-18
THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Settle the issue of your salvation today and move forward, firm in your faith.
