Faith is defined in Hebrews 11:1 as being sure of things hoped for and certain of things not seen. As is recorded in 2 Corinthians 5:7 NKJV, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” Hebrews 11:6 warns that without faith it is impossible to please God. Salvation is offered to us by God’s grace through faith alone, not a result of any works as explained in Ephesians 2:8.
If Jesus should return today, would He find a strong and steadfast faith within you? Are you prepared to meet Him face to face? Are you longing for that day with the confidence and assurance that can only come through faith in Him?
If you’re not sure, then perhaps you haven’t truly met Him at the cross. If that describes you, I would urge you to invite Him into your life as your Savior and Lord now before it’s too late. He is patiently waiting at the door of your heart for you to let Him in.
You must reach out to Him by faith to receive the gift of salvation He freely offers to us. After you realize that you are eternally lost in sin and need the Savior in your life, then humbly bow down and submit yourself before God in prayer to confess your sins and ask Him to forgive them. Invite Jesus into your heart as the Savior and the Lord of your life. If you are sincere in your desire to live your life for Him, then God will hear your prayer as He has promised.
Romans 10:9,10 NASB
That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
Romans 10:13 NKJV
For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Before we can claim God’s promise of salvation, it must be believed and accepted by faith alone. When Jesus returns soon, will He find true faith in your heart and life? You must be very sure. Your eternal destiny depends on how you can answer that question.
As Jesus said to Thomas many years ago, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29b NKJV)
