Are You Saved?

Complimentary Story

   Are you saved? What do I mean by that question? Every person is either saved or lost.

   “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  (John 3:16). Every person will either perish or have everlasting life! If you have everlasting life you are saved. If you perish, you are lost! So the most important aspect of any life is: Are you saved or lost? So how do I know if I’m saved or lost? 

   Whosoever believeth in Jesus shall not perish. In our world today, the amount of people who believe in God or Jesus is dwindling. Most people in this country that have been educated in the public schools have been taught that there is no God and that we are here by some process of evolution. Along with that teaching is the thought that there are no absolutes; truth is relative, that there is no hereafter, we all will die like any animal. So conduct is not important because there is no such thing as a day of judgment!

   That kind of education leaves us with the chaos that we are reaping today. But the real sadness and grief comes from that fact that all those who do not believe in God and Jesus are lost! 

   The Holy Bible is a miracle book. Many have tried to destroy the Holy Bible and have not been able to, because Almighty God preserves it! This miracle Book is a record of God’s dealings with man from the beginning of time unto the end. It is a very important book. The fact that there are more Bibles in the world than any other book is an act of Almighty God. This generation will have no excuse or reason to be lost. Anyone in this country and in very much of the modern world can have a Bible. Much effort goes into translating this Bible into other languages, so that more can be saved. 

   All the while, we have nations that are expending great resources to deny the obvious existence of God!  Any consideration of the human body we live in should convince us of a Divine Creator. But men and women “Because that when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise they became fools.” Read Romans 1:21-32 to get the full picture of what is happening in the world today. It is all about a society that is unthankful and lost! 

   Our work as Christians is to tell the lost world the story of Jesus that those who are willing to believe may believe and be saved. This is a serious matter because those that are lost will have an eternity of suffering. And those that are saved will have an eternity of peace and joy. 

   When God went to the extent that He did to save us through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, and then have people who will refuse to believe it, the eternal suffering will be a just judgment. It will be great suffering for those who had opportunity to be saved and refused to believe. 

   It is not only the Gospel that is glorious, but we are surrounded in nature that speaks of a Divine Creator. The believer marvels again and again as he sees the created world responding to the Creator in weather patterns, in the animal world, in the plant world, etc. The believer sees God in control of the climate and does not fret about climate change since God continually rules the changes that take place in the universe. “Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness and His wonderful works unto the children of men!” (Psalm 107:8). If you really want some interesting reading, get a Bible and read the whole Psalm 107 and note the goodness of God in His judgments. 

   Are you a true believer? Then you are saved. Otherwise, you are lost and need to be saved.
