You can take an ordinary pig, dress it up and add all kinds of accessories on it, and you will just have a dressed up pig. It will still oink like a pig, and live like a pig and have actions like a pig. The first chance the pig gets, it will roll in the mud. Why? It is her nature.
It takes the Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ to change our inside so that our outside will change. Jesus comes into our heart, and gives us a new nature. The Bible tells us that "Greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world." God gave us His only Son, as a sacrifice for our sins. John 3:16 says that "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Romans 10:9-10 (New International Version)
9. If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
It takes the experience of the new birth to change you from a ungodly person to a godly one. You just have to believe that Jesus died for your sins, by being crucified on the cross and he rose again the third day. He went back to heaven to sit at the right hand of God.
Let us pray: Our dear Heavenly Father, we come to you today to confess that Jesus Christ is your only son and I want to declare that He died for my sins by his Crucifixion on the cross, and rose again the third day. He went back to heaven to sit at the right hand at the throne of God. You said that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. I believe that I receive your salvation that only you can provide. Thank you Lord, for saving my soul. Amen.
If you just received salvation from your sins, start reading your Bible. If you don't have one, there are several online versions that you can find. Start with the book of John, and Romans. Find a Bible based church somewhere in your area, and start attending. Let us know if you received salvation today. I would be glad to hear from you.
