Salvation is of the Lord
by Stan Terry

     This is our standing before a Holy, Just, and Righteous God out side of Jesus Christ. This is what the scriptures tell us.

     Romans 3 verses 10 - 12; As it is written;  There is none righteous, no not one; there is none there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all Gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

     My friend when you tell me that it is your believing, or your choosing is the cause of your salvation you do not know God's way of salvation. We are born with a heart of unbelief, and for us to know the way of salvation, that Jesus Christ is the way the truth, and the life, we must be given a new heart to believe, and that can only be done by the power of God working in us who believe the truth. We must be born again. Jesus told Nicodemus, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

     This sinner by the power of God's, and his Spirit working in me, showed to me that Jesus Christ going to the Coss and dying as my substitute, and satifying the Justice of God in my place is my only hope for my salvation.

     My salvation is not of my doing but by God's doing completely. Salvation is of the Lord.
