The English word ecclesia is a compound noun from the Greek word ekklēsia, which literally means "called out ones" (the preposition ek means "out of," and the verb kaleo means "to call"):
To encourage the ecclesia...
...and revive this generation through worship, Bible study, fellowship, and biblical "personal training," in Jesus' name, by the Power of the Holy Spirit!!!
"To the ecclesia, to you who have been called by God. He made you holy by means of Christ Jesus, just as He did for all people everywhere who call on the Name of Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours."
1 Corinthians 1:2
"If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and approved by God, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved." Romans 10:9-10
Only because of His grace and mercy, when you accept Jesus as your personal Savior, you will receive the free gift of eternal salvation!
"Therefore God exalted Him to the highest Place and gave Him the Name above all names, that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in Heaven and on Earth and under the Earth, and to the glory of God the Father everyone will openly agree that Jesus Christ is Lord!" Philippians 2:9-11
There is nothing we can do to earn our salvation!
"For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9
When you confess that you are a sinner, that you cannot save yourself, and that you are in need of a Savior, you will immediately be sealed for eternity!
"You were included in Christ when you heard the message of Truth, the Gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in Him with a Seal, the promised Holy Spirit, Who is a Deposit guaranteeing your inheritance. This is just one more reason for us to praise our glorious God!" Ephesians 1:13-14
Jesus, the Second Person of the Trinity, took all past, present and future sins of every human being when He died on the cross. The Son of God is The Atoning Sacrifice Who took our place when He died on the cross, saving us from death and eternal separation from Him. Our works for Him is the only way we can thank Him for the free gift of eternal salvation!
"In Him, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace." Ephesians 1:7
Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity, is The Deposit. Upon salvation, He indwells our body and is ever-present; therefore, comforting, guiding, and speaking God's truth and ways to us always!
"The LORD your God will be the One Who keeps on walking with you—He will never leave you or abandon you." Deuteronomy 31:6b
Dear Jesus Christ,
I know I am a sinner and cannot save myself. I acknowledge my need for a Savior. I invite You to be my Lord and Savior. I trust in You alone.
You have offered me the free gift of eternal life in exchange for my sin. I believe that You died on the cross as a substitute for me. This proves that You love me! I place my sin next to Your cross.
I believe that You rose from the dead. This proves that You have the Power to transform me!
I repent of my sins and I believe that every sin I have ever committed
I believe that Your Word is true. I receive the free gift of eternal life that You said You would give me if I come to You for it!
I believe that You have written my name in the Book of Life! I know that I am Your child for eternity! I believe that You will guide every step I take from this moment on.
Thank You for cleansing me with Your blood so that I may be a living sacrifice to prove Your perfect will for my life. Thank You for making me holy and for accepting me!
In a comfortable posture, be still, breathe, and meditate on God's Word.
Your body desires attunement and I pray that you will experience His shalom.
One of my favorite things to do is designing memes using Scripture!
I pray you'll add more of His Word to your spiritual arsenal every day!
