What Saving Faith Looks Like

What Saving Faith Looks Like

It is important to understand that saving faith is not simply believing some historical fact with one’s mind. For example, we believe that George Washington was the first president of the United States and that Hitler ruled Germany in World War II and that Mahatma Gandhi lived in India. But such beliefs do not change the lives of those who believe. Likewise, many people believe that Jesus Christ lived long ago and that He did many wonderful things, but this belief does not change their lives.

Saving faith is different from this.

 

  1. Saving faith is an undivided

The Bible says that Jesus is the only Lord and Savior. See John 14:6; Acts 4:12. To be saved I must believe that Jesus Christ ALONE is Lord and Savior, just as the Bible says. Some people try to add Jesus to their other gods. They want to believe in Jesus while believing in other lords as well. No one can be saved this way.

 

  1. Saving faith is a trusting

The word “believe” in the Bible means to trust, to depend upon, to commit oneself to.To be saved a person must fully trusthis soul and eternal destiny to the Lord Jesus. He must rely uponJesus and Jesus alone to forgive his sin and make him right with God and carry him to heaven. Trusting Jesus is like trusting a boat to carry me across a lake. It is not enough to look at the boat and to admire it. You must get into the boat and trust it to carry you safely to the other side.

Have you trusted Jesus to take away your sin? Some people say they believe in Jesus, but they continue to go through their old religious rituals. This proves they are not truly trusting in Jesus. When we trust Jesus, we realize that we do not need any vain religious rituals for salvation.

 

  1. Saving faith is a convinced
To be saved I must be fully convincedthat Jesus is Lord and Savior and that He will fulfill His promises to me. True salvation is a know-so salvation. This is the kind of faith that Jesus’ early disciples had. See Peter’s testimony in John 6:66-69. This is the testimony of a genuinely saved person. We can be sure because of God’s promises (1 John 5:11-13). In contrast is the “faith” of those who say they “hope” they will be saved, meaning they aren’t sure. Saving faith doesn’t hope it makes it into heaven. Saving faith is sure, certain, convinced. It is not 99% faith in Jesus. It is 100% faith in Jesus. Our salvation is “by grace, through faith in Jesus” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

GOOD NEWS:

Jesus has done everything needed to secure our salvation.

Here is what we need to understand about our sinful condition, the salvation provided through Jesus, and our response:
Being a Christian is more than identifying yourself with a religion or affirming a certain value system. Being a Christian means you have embraced what the Bible says about God, mankind, and salvation. Consider the following truths found in Scripture.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CHRISTIAN

 

Being a Christian is more than identifying yourself with a religion or affirming a certain value system. Being a Christian means you have embraced what the Bible says about God, mankind, and salvation. Consider the following truths found in Scripture.

 

God Is Sovereign Creator.
Contemporary thinking says man is the product of evolution. But the Bible says we were created by a personal God to love, serve, and enjoy endless fellowship with Him. The New Testament reveals it was Jesus Himself who created everything (John 1:3; Colossians 1:16). Therefore, He also owns and rules everything (Psalm 103:19). That means He has authority over our lives and we owe Him absolute allegiance, obedience, and worship.

 

God Is Holy.
God is absolutely and perfectly holy (Isaiah 6:3), therefore He cannot commit or approve of evil (James 1:13). God requires holiness of us as well. First Peter 1:16 says, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

 

Mankind Is Sinful.
According to Scripture, everyone is guilty of sin: “There is no man who does not sin” (1 Kings 8:46). That doesn’t mean we’re incapable of performing acts of human kindness. But we’re utterly incapable of understanding, loving, or pleasing God on our own. (Romans 3:10-12).

 

Sin Demands a Penalty.
God’s holiness and justice demand that all sin be punished by death: (Ezekiel 18:4). That’s why simply changing our patterns of behavior can’t solve our sin problem or eliminate its consequences.16

 

Jesus Is Lord and Savior.
The New Testament reveals it was Jesus Himself who created everything (Colossians 1:16). Therefore He owns and rules everything (Psalm 103:19). That means He has authority over our lives and we owe Him absolute allegiance, obedience, and worship. Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.” Even though God’s justice demands death for sin, His love has provided a Savior who paid the penalty and died for sinners (1 Peter 3:18). Christ’s death satisfied the demands of God’s justice and Christ’s perfect life satisfied the demands of God’s holiness (2 Corinthians 5:21), thereby enabling Him to forgive and save those who place their faith in Him (Romans 3:26).

 

The Character of Saving Faith.
True faith is always accompanied by repentance from sin. Repentance is agreeing with God that you are sinful, confessing your sins to Him, and making a conscious choice to turn from sin (Luke 13:3,5; 1 Thessalonians 1:9) and pursue Christ (Matthew 11:28-30; John 17:3) and obedience to Him (1 John 2:3). It isn’t enough to believe certain facts about Christ. Even Satan and his demons believe in the true God (James 2:19), but they don’t love and obey Him. True saving faith always responds in obedience (Ephesians 2:10).
