Q & A
QUESTION: What happens at the point of salvation?
ANSWER: When you receive Jesus as Lord, you become united with Him:
The Bible says:
Colossians 2:11-14 (TPT)
11. Through our union with him we have experienced circumcision of heart. All of the guilt and power of sin has been cut away and is now extinct because of what Christ, the Anointed One, has accomplished for us.
12. For we've been buried with him into his death. Our "baptism into death" also means we were raised with him when we believed in God’s resurrection power, the power that raised him from death's realm.
13. This "realm of death" describes our former state, for we were held in sin’s grasp. But now, we've been resurrected out of that "realm of death" never to return, for we are forever alive and forgiven of all our sins!
14. He cancelled out every legal violation we had on our record and the old arrest warrant that stood to indict us. He erased it all—our sins, our stained soul—he deleted it all and they cannot be retrieved! Everything we once were in Adam has been placed onto his cross and nailed permanently there as a public display of cancellation.
Beloved, as you give your life to Christ, you are made free from sinful nature and you submit to the Lordship of Christ. Afterwards you must begin to live by the Word, by joining a Bible- believing Church, so you can grow in the things of the Spirit. You must be grounded, guided and nurtured in a true house of God where the Spirit of God dwells - in order to be equipped and empowered to live the Christian life successfully and victoriously, thereby pleasing God and perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
