Action: Know

On the Portuguese devotional site, we began today a 52-part series on the actions of the follower of Christ. Below is the first in the series.

READ: “He who believes and is immersed shall be saved” Mark 16.16 MEG.

THINK: Whoever obeys the commandment of the Lord Jesus knows he is saved, according to his promise. Salvation is based, not on feelings, but on the reality of Christ’s offering and on the possibility of verifying if we are saved or not. See 1 John 5.13. We can be sure of our salvation when we obey what Jesus commands.

ACT: Verify your understanding of what you did to receive salvation from Christ and compare it with biblical teaching.

PRAY: Heavenly Father, thank you for my salvation and for the clearness of what’s necessary to receive it.

ASK: Who else needs to know about salvation?
