ARE YOU SAVED? (see Aug. 23)

 
"Prayer of this kind is good, and God our Savior is pleased with it, for He wants all men to be saved." —1 Timothy 2:3-4
 

The Lord wants us to pray that the world be governed so as to promote the best conditions for accepting His salvation. He wants all to be saved. He even became a human being and died on the cross so that all could be saved. "The grace of God has appeared, offering salvation to all" (Ti 2:11).

What must we do to be saved from sin, Satan, hell, slavery, self-hatred, and darkness? What must we do to be saved for love, evangelization, peace, Christian community, freedom, victory, and everlasting life? We must believe in the Lord Jesus (Acts 16:31). Then we and all our households will be saved (Acts 16:31). We are saved by grace through faith (Eph 2:8). The Lord "saved us; not because of any righteous deeds we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the baptism of new birth and renewal by the Holy Spirit. This Spirit He lavished on us through Jesus Christ our Savior" (Ti 3:5-6).

Renew your Baptism. Repent and go to Confession. Live by faith. Be saved. Love the Savior and live for Jesus, Whose name means "Yahweh saves."

 
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your saving grace and for the Savior, Jesus. I adore You — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Promise: "No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other or be attentive to the one and despise the other. You cannot give yourself to God and money." —Lk 16:13
Praise: Alleluia! "God is One. One also is the Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, Who gave Himself as a Ransom for all" (1 Tm 2:5-6). Alleluia forever!
