Get saved in one minute

Getting saved is easy. It is written: "Whosoever will call on the name of the Lord shall be saved". The problem is not to be saved but to stay saved.  It is also easy to get married. You only need t o find a willing person, get a marriage license and sign the papers. The problem is to stay married. You can get rich easily. Many people inherit large sums of money but few hang on to it.

The thief on the cross said:" "Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!" And He said to him, "Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise." Luke 23:42. He was saved. The problem is not being saved, but staying saved. Jesus said that he who endures unto the end will be saved. Few people endure unto the end.

Most people don’t stay with Jesus.  If we walk away from Him we are no longer saved. Nothing can pluck us from His hand but He will not prevent us from going if we want to leave. Being saved is the beginning, staying saved takes commitment.

Jesus said: "Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me." Matthew 16:24. 

If we do not stay with Jesus till the end and serve Him with all our hearts we shall not enter the Kingdom of heaven. Christians who still struggle with sin do not love Jesus, they love their sin. Jesus knows that. If we love anything more than Him, we shall not enter His kingdom. We can fool ourselves and we can fool others but we cannot fool Jesus.

If we do not stay in a relationship with the Savior we are not saved. Are you still saved?
