Be Saved

Have you been in need of saving? Were you in a bad situation and needed rescue? Was there a time in which you needed someone desperately to reach out a helping hand? Are you in that situation now? Do you know you need to be saved? Do you know who can save you?

We all go through good times and bad times. Some of us may have gone through some very bad times in our lives. Others of us may have bad times ahead of us. In those times we need family and friends to help us through. We may lean very heavily on them to get through it.

We have come to expect bad times, but we also need being saved during good times. In fact, it may be during very good times that we most need saving. Why? We do not realize we need saving. We think we have the world by the tail. We are running through life riding our high horse. Nothing can stop us. Until…it all comes crashing down.

The bottom line is this: we all need saving. Jesus came into the world to save the world. He came to free us from our sin, our culture, oppression, and ourselves. Left to our own devices, we will walk down the path to destruction. It is only by walking with Jesus that we walk the path of salvation. He is the cornerstone, the One on which the entire kingdom of God is built.

When we turn our lives over to Him, we are saved. We may think we are fine, but we are not, if our lives are not built on Jesus. We may make lots of money. We have great jobs. We may have a wonderful spouse. We may raise good kids. But we still need to be saved.

I pray we all choose to be saved by Jesus. I pray we decide to build our lives on the Cornerstone. I pray each one of us will give our lives to Jesus and walk the path of salvation with Him. Know that you need to be saved. Choose to allow Jesus to save you. Build your life on Him. Walk the path of salvation.

Acts 4:11-12 Jesus is “ ‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’ Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
