Keys to everlasting life!!! This IS the truth of salvation and is absolutely worth 17-min of your time! Jesus revealed this revelation progressively. For a long time I had to preach and live by faith, not fully understanding why this doctrine of fully surrendering to Jesus was not works-righteousness based and left room for grace by faith. Now I understand it's because the humble will live this way. The humble will realize they cannot do anything without Jesus Christ, like Jesus said. The humble will lay down their lives, pick up their cross, and follow Jesus to life, daily! As the Bible makes clear: God resists the proud, and to the HUMBLE God gives GRACE! And is it not by grace that we are saved?! It is. 

So humility is absolutely key to salvation. Humility is what is good and right in the sight of God. Humility is what leads to the kind of life that allow the work to get HIS eternal work done through us. Humility is everything, for without it we become enemies of God, and God WILL resist us, and I cannot imagine any of those that God has resisted entering in to Heaven on the day of judgement. I guess time will tell. But to me, the scriptures make it crystal clear, and I am going to pursue this race home to God with the most zeal and to the highest degree possible for me to run. I am not playing around or risking my eternal soul. Humility is the path I will choose, by the grace of God, by humbling myself in brokenness of spirit, in poverty of spirit, in front of Him and seeking HIS way home, as HE leads me!!! 

God is awesome, wonderful, and amazing! At the end of the day, there is nothing better than God's plan for out lives. His will is perfect; He is all-loving, all-knowing, and all-powerful, truly we should be jumping at the chance to surrender our lives to a God such as this, and I ABSOLUTELY AM! God has proven His goodness to me time and time again! There is no other way to TRULY live and get the most out of this life than to give it ALL over to Him! So to those who choose to do their best to take their every word and action from God, I think that is wonderful! Let us continually humble ourselves in front of Him, and follow His way home! It's going to be a marvelous journey to say the least!

God bless you all, in Jesus' mighty name! -Daniel

James 4:6 (NIV): But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: "God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble."

James 4:6 (KJV): But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

John 14:6: Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Matthew 7:21: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

Acts 4:12: Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Titus 3:5: he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,

Amen! What a statement; all of this! Just amazing! It's wonderful and refreshing to hear! God is too good not to live this way! Often people are focused on what they have to give up and not on what they can gain. I pray we learn how to express and live this in such a way that people will do anything to pick the fruit from our trees, in Jesus' mighty name! It will all be by the Lord's plan. He is good! He is faithful! He is worthy of all praise! Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus! :D  🎉 💓 ✝️ 💓 🎉

Often people are focused on what they have to give up and not on what they can gain.

We are the wealthiest couple in the Universe...first,as individuals(single) we each "thought" having someone in our lives(boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse)we would have to "give up" some part of our lives in Christ,we didn't want to "share" or be distracted from God.....thats what we "thought",we were both very content,FILLED,wanting nothing & no one because we were at Perfect Peace with our single lives ,much Joy   we were each "COMPLETE",living for Christ....it does indeed start when you Humble yourself before the Might Hand of God,then you die to "self"

   Both reluctant as we saw where our relationship was going & to our surprise we gave up nothing,there is DOUBLE Praise,DOUBLE Worship,Double prayer,DOUBLE Glory to God.DOUBLE honor,DOUBLE thanksgiving.....only INCREASE & even nearer to our Lord as we are ONE in Him

   So many folks are hoping for someone to fill a void,complete them,they "feel" they are missing something & they are right,something is lacking with their Relationship with God in Christ & that is always an issue of "pride"......Jesus COMPLETES us but He cannot do that unless we are"emptied out" ,what about me me me,I need,I) want,I  I I .......in the Kingdom of God one plus one does not equal two,one plus one equals ONE.....God Doesn't take 2 halves to make a whole,He makes us WHOLE....When you put 2 of those together  WOW-That is Gods Marriage Covenant......God is always FIRST!If "pride" is hanging on then God is not First and the Relationship is hindered by "self"......

 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.                Matthew 6:33

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
1 Peter 5:6

      Hi!!! I’ve just been wondering as this was a question that came up in our study group in my local church. 
      Can You lose your Salvation?
      if so can anyone explain why with biblical reference? Thanks!!

      I have this silly concern and constant worry about my decisions displeasing God. So many of my goals and things I want to do aren’t necessarily Christian based. I like doing things such as watching certain shows that have cussing and sexual content in them....but they are so entertaining....I’ve been told that even the little things I like to do, such as working out, is based on vanity. But I really just love working out because it makes me feel complete. I’m even a little afraid of getting in a relationship because of the fear of feeling something sinful such as lust or immoral thoughts. Back when I was younger, I didn’t mind these things much. But now, I’m at an age where I should know better. I don’t want to live this way anymore. I need to find an inner peace. God Bless.

      the Lord kept me from sin, hallelujah, he kept me from sinning, God be praised, he took the temptation away from me, he denied me the thing i desired, sing his praises, he kept me from compromise and saved my integrity and in uprightness of heart i will serve him, amen

      Hello. I am a teenager that has been brought up in a Christian family surrounded by Christian people all of my life. I believed in God but could never say I was saved or had what some would call a personal relationship with him. I went to church, prayed, participated in church activities but never had that connection with Christ. I have struggled with this throughout my life. When I was little I used to attend church with my grandmother rather often. I used to love going to church with her until I was about 11 years old. They are the kind of church that preaches “get saved or burn in hell for all of eternity” type. Well, her church holds the belief that until you are 11 years old if you were to die you would get a free ticket to heaven and not have to be saved. After that, however, if you were to die unsaved you would go to hell. So nearing the time I was 11 in their belief my ‘’free ticket to heaven” was about to run out.
       
      They became pushy on trying to get me to repent and put me on the spot a lot. Although it was never said aloud they and my grandmother believed that the denomination of church we go to is “wrong.” So, when their revival week rolled around my grandmother would always try to guilt us into going even though we really didn’t want to. They would put us on the spot often and make us feel really awkward especially concerning salvation. I know they have good intentions and I love my grandmother and everyone there but their type of church is just not for me. I don’t believe that you can make someone get saved but that they have to find Christ when he is ready for them.
      Needless to say, however, the whole being saved thing has always been something really awkward for me and something I have tried to avoid mostly due to those experiences. However, if there is one thing that going to my grandma’s church really imprinted into my mind it was that I was lost and really did need to get saved. It was often something I tried to shove away but I did know if I didn’t get saved it was an eternity in hell for me. This has often bothered me throughout my life and this weight on my heart was brought about again when listening to my preacher’s sermon today. I honestly don’t quite remember what it was about but it evoked in my heart the feeling that I have had many times before that I needed to get saved. I once again tried to push it away but it lingered in my heart throughout the day. Later on in the afternoon when I was back home in my room the feeling that I needed Christ and was lacking him was brought into my heart. I decided to close my bedroom door and pray by my bedside in hopes that I would finally gain salvation.
       
      I am definitely not the most faithful person but I repented of sins and told him I was ready to accept him as my lord and savior. I didn’t feel entirely ready but realized that I am never going to be perfectly ready to accept him. I tried to let go of my fear surrounding salvation and after I felt I was finished I said amen and felt that a weight was lifted off of me. That feeling in my heart was gone and I felt light. However, although I felt light I was like “uh, so did I just get saved? This isn’t exactly how I pictured getting saved felt like.” All of my life I have heard that once people get saved they feel peaceful and just know they are saved. However the fact that I was questioning the fact on rather I was saved right after that leads me to believe that that may have not have been salvation. I know it can be different for everybody but I am just kinda confused. I am not really doubting the experience just wondering if that is what it is supposed to be like. It was nice and all but I think if I was actually saved I would "feel it in my heart." It’s been a few hours and I just feel like it’s a regular night. Was I actually saved or not? Some kind of help would be lovely, sorry for the long story and thanks a lot =).
      Edit: I wrote this last night and it's now the next morning. I have been thinking about it all morning and can't help but think that was it? Wow so much confusion haha
