What’s the price of Salvation?

Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

I experienced something sad and pitiful in the early hours of this morning that inspired today’s post. Social media ehn, hmmm. We really need to be careful to guard our eye and ear gates o. not everything is entertainment as it were anymore. So I accidentally happened upon an instagram page of an atheist human being, and I felt deep sadness. How do I get such people to believe? I pondered for a long while till I fell asleep.

The thought of being lost and alone in this world makes me shudder. I can’t imagine what it would have been like if I didn’t know God or worse, if I didn’t believe in Him. Some people actually suffer from the ignorance of who God is and how so dangerously-deep He loves them.

God’s love is so real for us that even while we were undeserving and buried in sin, He so graciously gave His beloved son Jesus as a bloody sacrifice. I repeat, we didn’t have to deserve it, there was no price we had to pay for the blood of Jesus to be shed. However, there is a price we have to pay for salvation.

Romans 10:9-10Amplified Bible (AMP)

because if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart a person believes [in Christ as Savior] resulting in his justification [that is, being made righteous—being freed of the guilt of sin and made acceptable to God]; and with the mouth he acknowledges and confesses [his faith openly], resulting in and confirming [his] salvation.


I don’t take it for granted that I am born again. I still confess Jesus as my Lord and saviour. Each day I make a personal decision to be a Christian, it’s a concious effort I make because I love God. I know what He did for me over 2000 years ago (I don’t have to try to use my head to understand it), I love what He did, what He still does for me and what He will continually do for me. I love who I am with Him, and I can’t imagine my life without him.

So today I’m thankful for the amazing privilege to know Him and continue walking in the knowledge of Him.

And The Holy Spirit whispred to me, “Just keep telling the Good News of God’s Love.”

Oh my God, how refreshing it is, how freeing, what glorious liberty I have in You through salvation. That I know the Truth which has set me totally free. I would sing of Your Love forever, and continually tell of Your great mercy and grace. Thank You my Father!

  1. Great one Rhed! 🎤🎤I am so glad that Jesus loves me (2x) Jesus loves even me. That said – 🎤I’ll shout your fame through all the earth, I’ll lift your name on high till the world will know that you’re my God, Jesus I’ll shout your fame. According to D.C. Talk Christians are one of the promoters of atheism cos they acknowledge God with their lips and deny Him with their lifestyle. Hmmmm we should do more than lip service by ensuring we show the world that we are not of this world, it’s time we earned the term “Christian” and that’s by our deeds that’s the price of salvation! Btw Social media is something else now o

    1. We really should! Do you know we are responsible for the souls that are yet perishing? 😢 omo what great responsibility He has given to us, He really trusts us so much. May we never fail Him. May our lives ever express the Love of Christ and may our fragrance be oh so sweet that they would undoubtedly be drawn to the source of our unconditional Love.

      1. Let your light so shine before men that they will see you and glorify your father in heaven. We just have to depend solely on the HolySpirit as we can’t do it by ourselves. Like casting crowns sang- how
        Interesting to know you don’t need me, how amazing to find that you want me… I’ll never get by leaning on my own ability. Amen may we never fail God. Sighs Lord make my life an advertisement for you. This is my desire to be used by you

  2. Hmmm. Indeed my friend, there is a God that loves us unconditionally. Am really blessed with this message and my desire is to be a model of that which is good, always representing Christ consciously and unconsciously. More grace my lovely friend!
