  1. Best wishes to you. I can’t say i’m an example setter of what a Christian should be like, but i know i’m saved. I hope you have the same assurance. See my blogs if you need some inspiration or assurance. How we define the word “repentance” in relation to the moment of salvation by grace through faith, is vitally important. I believe repentance is a “change of mind” rather than a commitment to do God’s will in discipleship. We change our mind about how we see ourselves, our sins, the gospel and Christ. The gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation. The preaching is with power. The gospel of Christ impacts the hearer. The devil comes and tries to take the word out of man’s hearts, lest he believes and becomes saved. In John 6:29, when asked what they must do to work the works of God, Christ simply said that the work of God (singular), was that they believe in Him whom the Father has sent (according to the KJV). Of course, faith is not a work. Rather, it’s placing our trust in the finished work of another (Christ). Believing with the heart and confessing with the mouth that Jesus is the Lord. There is none good, but one. Christ basically let the rich young ruler know that He was not just a man. He was good and He was God. The word that was with God, and was God, become flesh. The thief on the cross is a good example of salvation. He saw his own condemnation and confessed Jesus, calling Him “Lord…” before the other criminal. He simply asked Christ to remember him when He would come into His kingdom. Christ then informed him that his destination was going to be a good place. Christ’s shed blood is what cleanses us. His atoning sacrifice is a finished work. It seems that many don’t understand salvation by grace, today. Grace is unmerited favor. We don’t deserve salvation. No one deserves salvation by God’s grace. It’s not of works, so no one can boast. No, salvation is not a license to sin, but it is a free gift that is freely (without price) received by faith in Christ, who died on the Cross as the full payment for our sins, was buried, and rose from the dead. He said it was finished, and those words He spoke have meaning for us today. We can rest in the fact that if we’ve trusted in Christ’s finished atoning work alone, for our salvation, looking to Him along and nothing we’ve done, do, or will do, our eternal destiny is to be with Him in a good place, just like the thief on the cross. Christ is the focus of faith. We who know Him, came to Him in our need. Believed on Him with the knowledge that we have nothing but filthy rags to offer. Not acceptable. Only the Lamb is, whose perfect righteousness we are clothed in, if we know Him. May the Lord give you His peace and heal you, if possible. I will say a prayer for you tonight. Ironically, i don’t pray much…i’ve always found it difficult to do so, but i do study the Bible day and night and never get bored doing so. God has taken the desire for secular music from me. I find that i don’t want to listen to 70’s and 80’s music like i used to. It’s got to be really light rock for me to listen to a song, now. I know He has changed me. Studying His word so much seems to have had an impact on me. Hope He has inspired you. You’re welcome to check out my KJV Bible Verses blog or my blog about salvation whenever you feel inclined to visit sometime. Sorry if this post was too long (i type a lot).

    May God bless you. Take care…will pray for you tonight,
