Salvation: So Simple
Salvation is so simple, but many miss it, thinking it is religion. Religion is hinged on doing this or that or not doing something to recommend you to God. In other words, it is based on your righteousness. This is man’s attempt to reach God. But it’s futile. No one can save themselves. We are told that all our righteousness is as filthy rags. There is none righteous, not even one.
All we have sinned and gone astray.
All we need to do is to come as we are.
Salvation is a done deal. Jesus has completed the work when died on Calvary’s Cross and said “It is Finished.”
So to be saved, all you need to is as simple as, A, B, C!
A: Acknowledge that you cannot save yourself by your efforts.
B: Believe that only Jesus can save you-not religion, but a relationship with Him.
C: Confess with your mouth, that He died for you and was raised to give you a New Life.
By faith, invite Him to take His rightful place-in your heart. Thank Him for saving you.
Prayer of salvation
I come to You today as I am.
I believe that only Jesus can save me. I cannot save myself by what I do or do not do. I repent of my sins and invite Christ to take His rightful place on the throne of my heart.
I confess that Jesus is my Saviour and my Lord. He died to reconcile me to God. And today I receive the free gift of salvation.
Thank You for saving me. I am born again. I am a New Creation. Old things have passed away and all things have become new. My name is written in the Book of Life. Heaven is my home. I am accepted in the Beloved. Praise the Lord. Hallelujah!
Read the following scriptures :
Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23

I would also like to be praying for you.
God bless you richly. And congratulations!
Supplanted, Not Supplemented (By Fenny West)
Supplanted, Not Supplemented;
With a New Life, not a New leaf.
New species, New Creature
Not made over, not improved.
The Old has gone and the New has come.
I was alien to God but now a friend of God
I was dead in sin but now alive to righteousness
I was a child of disobedience but now a child of obedience
I was an object of wrath but now an object of love
I was rejected but now accepted in the Beloved.
I was dead and stank like Lazarus but now resurrected with Zoe, the life of God –
the old life supplanted-not supplemented.
I was not just in darkness but darkness itself.
Now I am the Light of the world
A city on a hill that cannot be hidden
Now I am the salt if the earth
I was under a curse but now blessed with the blessing of Abraham,
blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places.
I am blessed to be a blessing, a Solution Centre.
I am healed to bring healing to my world.
I am saved to reach out to reconcile others. I am a man with a mission.
I have a purpose – driven life.
Now I have the life of God
Now I am a New Creation
Now I am a son of God
Now I am a citizen of heaven.
Now I am in this world
But I am not of this world.
When Jesus was crucified
I was crucified with Him
When He was buried
I was buried with Him
When He was raised
I was raised up with Him
And when was enthroned
I was enthroned with Him
I am now sitting with Him
Far above principalities and powers.
Above every throne, above every name.
I am reigning with Him
He is the Head
I am His body
I am His temple
I am His voice
His hands and feet.
I carry divinity in my humanity
I am a peculiar person
of the chosen generation
Of the royal priesthood.
I am born again
Born to reign
Born to praise.
Born to shine
Born to win
Born to bring glory
To the Lord of glory
As He is so am I in this world.
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.2Cor5:17
20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.1John4:17
When Your Heart is in My Hands
When Your Heart is in the right place, you will go the right place, say the right things, associate with the right people and get the right result.
It does not mean life will be rosy or comfortable, or smooth-sailing. You will face opposition and some struggle, but they will be opportunities to see the power, sovereignty, beauty and presence of God.
We were created by Him and for Him. He gives us rest and fulfillment. Outside Him, we will be famished, restless like a fish out of a sea or like an eagle 🦅 in a cage. He loves us with an Everlasting love, unconditional love, Agape love.
Little wonder He said, “My Son, give me your heart.” Life is spiritual. God is a Spirit. We hail from His breath. But we wandered away from Him. Only He can satisfy, give us peace and restore us. Only the Prince of Peace can give us peace profound.
My son, give me your heart. My daughter, give me your heart. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone will hear My voice and open the door, I will come in and dine with him and he with Me. Let me into your heart. And I will give you a New Beginning, a New Start, a New Song. The old will go and the new will come. You will pass from death to life. You will become a New Creation.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. And how wonderful if I am your treasure and your heart is in My hands! How glorious and victorious you will be if I am your treasure and pleasure and your heart is in My hands! How beautiful and fitting if you love me too and your heart is in My hands! YOU will be Unconquerable, indomitable, unquenchable. Besides, you will have life more abundant-the God-kind of life – Zoe. And the angels will have a party 🎉 and praise God for your bravery and noble choice. You can do it today, even right now!
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Rom10:9-10
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matt6:19-21
New Man, You Are
New Man You Are, Without a Past
You have passed from death to life
His blessings upon you are vast
All because Christ is Now your life.
So Your New heritage has begun indeed
It all began the day you were born again
And whom the Son sets free is free indeed
And you were set free, with Him to reign.
So make your calling an election sure
Give no room for the enemy to gloat
Be not ignorant of his plot, ploy and lure
Take not his carrot, get out of his boat
Unmask him, use the Sword of the Spirit
Give him no chance, or bridgehead.
Give him no loophole; for he is a foe
Come to steal, kill and destroy.
Beware the little foxes that spoil the vine
They will pollute your house, the New wine
They are all out to destroy all that is divine.
Beware the wolves that come in sheep’s clothing
Beware of Jacob disguised as Esau
He has come for just one thing: steal your blessing
He may say, “Peace!” but in his heart is War.
He does not play fair; he’s an outlaw.
So cast him out and shut well the door 🚪
Use your sling and stone, put him down
Make sure he does not get up from the floor.
Know without a doubt
It is a spiritual warfare,
Of this truth you must be aware
Refuse any truce or come cease-fire
Refuse any buffer zone
Or demilitarised zone
It is all a lie, a dangerous game to outwit you
Be not ignorant of his devices, stratagems. and sinister diabolical tricks to ensnare, imprison, blind and decapitate.
You are a New Man with a New mission
You are a New Man with a New vision
You are a New Man with a New Mandate
You are a New Man with the mind of Christ
You are a New Man created in His image
You are a New man with the divine nature
You are a New Man who is a new Creation
You are a New Man made an overcomer
You are a New Man made a winner 🥇
You are a New Man made to prevail
Sin shall not have dominion over you
You are a New Man with that nature of righteousness.
You are a New Man with that nature of holiness.
You are a New Man justified by faith
You are a New Man saved by grace through faith.
You are a New Man born for greatness
You are a New Man who is greatly graced.
And Who knows whether you have come
To the Kingdom for such a time as this?
