“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13. However not many stay saved. Jesus saves everyone who calls on Him but very few stay with Him and obey Him. Many who hear the gospel of Jesus Christ call on Him and He delivers them from sin, bondage and addictions but they go back to sin and their end is worse than their beginning. They become bigger sinners than they previously were.
Many believers think they can sin every day and just keep asking forgiveness and Jesus will forgive them. He won’t. Many think they just need to say a quick prayer before they die and ask forgiveness for their sins. They will not find forgiveness. The door will close on them.
We read the parable of the wise and foolish virgins in Matthew 25. Jesus said:1“Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2“Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. 3“For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, 4but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. 5“Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. 6“But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7“Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. 8“The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9“But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’10“And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. 11“Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ 12“But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13“Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.”
Just believing in Jesus and calling on Him once will not keep you saved. Those who disobey Jesus and keep on living in sin are on the broad road that leads to destruction. We have to follow Jesus every day until the end, to STAY SAVED. Repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of your sin. Stop sinning, be holy. Seek Jesus in prayer and He will disclose Himself to you.
We can die any moment. We must always be ready. Are you ready?
May Jesus bless you.
