Today is day 18 of the #31DaystoWrite challenge, the October challenge for NaBloPoMo and the Ultimate Blog challenge, which I am participating in this month. Today I want to continue my #ScripturesofFatih challenge with another Scripture. Today’s verse is Ephesians 4:5 – and says “One Lord, one Faith, one Baptism”. There are not multiple ways to come to God. There is only one way and that is through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We can not earn our way into Heaven. We can not do enough “good deeds” to earn salvation. We simply receive Salvation by repenting of our sins and accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior.
When written out, it sounds so easy to just utter the words, “accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior”. God requires us to repent and have faith. But faith takes effort. It takes trusting in someone we can not see personally. Trust does not necessarily come easy – especially if someone has hurt us in the past. So do you find it easy to trust and have faith? i would love to hear from you.
