If your answer was anything like “Because I am a good person” or “I’ve done more things right than wrong” or anything that is based on what you do, then you should recommit yourself to the liberating truth of the Gospel today!
The first answer that should have come to your mind was something like “I am saved by grace” or “Because Jesus is my Lord and Savior” or something that shows you have a clear understanding of the gospel. Remember, salvation is a gift from God to us. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can we be saved. Eternal life begins the moment we truly receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith.
Check out these scriptures:
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit” (Titus 3:5).
I've checked my heart, and I'm resting in the grace of my Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ..
God's hit my heart, and I'm truly rededicating my life to Jesus Christ today!.
I want to commit my life to Jesus Christ today.
