Salvation is the Road Leading to Heaven

Penulis : A. James on Tuesday, August 31, 2010 | 10:23 AM




The Bible states plainly, For WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED. Romans 10:13 KJV.

Eternal life awaits those who are saved.

Salvation is the renewing of the spirit. It is a rescue from sin and from death. Without salvation and being cleansed of all sin Heaven cannot be entered into. Salvation cleanses one of all sin. Sin is human nature but, through Jesus Christ all sins are washed away.


The Birth of Jesus Christ is the First Christmas Story

Most everyone has heard the Christmas story. Long ago, Jesus came to earth as a baby being born in a stable. He was surrounded by the animals that lived in the stable. He did not have a warm blanket or a soft bed. Mary, his mother, wrapped Jesus in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger. Sounds like an extraordinary beginning doesn't it?


Did you know swaddling clothes were actually torn cloth that was used to wipe the animals and a manger was what the animals food was dumped into for them to eat. Imagine the horrible smell of the animals that surrounded this wonderful blessing from above. Why would Jesus choose to leave a perfect Heaven and come to a sinful earth? Simple. For human salvation.


With the exception of a few passages not much is told of Jesus as a child. Not until Jesus was thirty years old did the Bible begin to record his ministry. Jesus traveled from town to town teaching and healing for three years then, made his way to an upper room where the Last Supper took place. Here Jesus foretold of one disciple's betrayal. Judas, one of the twelve disciples, sold Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. Such a small price for Jesus' life.


Crucifixion of Jesus Christ

 

It wasn't a surprise to Jesus when the Roman soldiers came to take him away. He knew his crucifixion was at hand. From the beginning of time, a sacrifice had to be given for forgiveness of sin. Now, Jesus would become the last sacrifice. Hanging on the cross he took all sin upon himself, paying the price for all the sin in the world then and now. Yes, he died. But, thank the Lord the story did not end there.


Jesus' body was taken down, wrapped in white linen and placed inside a tomb. A rock was rolled over the opening of the tomb. Three days later when the women come to pour spices on his body, they found something amazing had occurred. The stone had been rolled away and his body wasn't there. Although Jesus in his resurrected body stayed on earth for forty days, he did ascend to Heaven where he now abides until he comes again to rapture those who are saved from this sinful world.




Salvation Leads Straight to Heaven

 
Getting to Heaven cannot be done by good works alone as many think. Actually, it is much simpler than that.
The Bible says in Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.


By believing on Jesus Christ, asking forgiveness of sin, and asking him to come live in your heart thou shalt be saved.


In the Bible Jesus says in John 3:16
For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish
but have eternal life.


By believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and asking for salvation and forgiveness of sin he will give eternal life in Heaven with him and those saved who have gone on before us. Living a life with Jesus will be a rewarding and adventurous one.
