Secure in God’s Grace

Romans 10:9-13

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

—  Romans 10:9

Salvation is a precious gift offered to everyone, and all who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior receive salvation. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection we are reconciled with God, forgiven of all our sins, and granted eternal life. This salvation is based not on anything we have done but on God’s grace alone.

Our salvation depends not on our feelings or circumstances but on the unchanging character of God and the finished work of Christ. We are saved by grace through faith, and nothing can separate us from God’s love for us in Christ.

Assurance of salvation brings peace and security to our souls. Yet this does not mean we can grow complacent or have a license to sin. The gift of salvation prompts us to live in gratitude and obedience. Knowing that we are saved, we are motivated to live lives that honor and glorify God. We strive to grow in faith, walking in step with the Spirit and sharing the hope of salvation with others.

Today let’s rejoice in the gift of salvation and the assurance it brings. May we embrace the truth that our salvation is secure in Christ. Let’s live with grateful hearts, striving to live out our faith and share the good news of salvation with a world in need.

Gracious God, we thank you for salvation in Jesus Christ. Help us to live faithfully by honoring and glorifying you. Give us boldness to share this good news with others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
