How Saved Are You?

So, how saved are you? Have you ever wonder what will happen to your soul when you wither away in your skin? Is it wise to own everything of this world yet lose your soul? It is a very sad case to learn that even people who call themselves Christians will not enter the kingdom of God. Are you familiar with your verses? If you're not then I would like to carry you through with some Bible reading. It's not heavy reading, just some very light passages that are easy to understand. 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. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ [Matthew 7:21-23]
Let's not start pointing your index fingers to the non-believers and say that they're worse than you are. We're not any better than them. Here, I'm talking about you believers. I know of people who go to church on Sundays as a routine. It's part of the Sunday activities just like going to work. Clock in and clock out. Singing praises without knowing the meaning, dozing off during sermons and be wide awake when sermon is over. There are many Christians who are like that.

Look at the world around us. Look at those countries where nation rises up against nation. The earthquakes in New Zealand and more earthquakes, flood and calamities. This world is beyond redemption. Wanna see some Scriptures from the Bible? Don't you find it surprising that the Bible has everything written before it happens? Yet, still people will choose not to believe after reading and seeing it with their own eyes. Let me share with you a snippet of the Scripture taken from Matthew 24

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. [Matthew 24:6-7]

You can probably read about the signs of the end times yourself... just click on this --> Matthew 24

Receiving Jesus as your personal Saviour is the first step but from there onwards, you will have to read His Words to know the purpose that God has for you. Through grace, by faith... but not to forget this...
So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
[Revelations 3:16]

Is that warning above clear enough to make you wake up from your deep slumber? You have to choose between the world and God... I think most believers know the answer. In this life, it's everything about Him...

You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.
[1 Corinthians 10:21]
I hope you're able to read this with a conscience as clear as crystal...
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling
[Philippians 2:12]
