It was a super sunny day. The scorching heat was merciless. The sea side haven had turned to a burning hell. People needed to get themselves wet as much as they could. There was no water anywhere(don’t ask me why), except the sea water of course. Which was….salty. Sun screens were cracking and parched throats were panting. For just a drop of water, or even better, a lick of iced cream. Isn’t that what iced creams were made for? For sunny days like this? But anyways….
A stone throw from the cluster of people by the seaside was a kiosk. A kiosk that no one dared to go because iced cream there was like buying gold. It was that expensive. Water? water was not available….let’s focus on ice cream.
Nobody dared go to the kiosk because they knew that no matter how much they begged or how much they tried to gather money, the iced creams will stay in the freezer. All of their monies together could not afford to get a single iced cream. Yes, that is the reality of this world, lol…just follow please.
Little did they know that not too long from when the last person was there, an influential wealthy fellow had come by to purchase enough iced cream for every single one at the sea side. Mr kiosk man, being a funny guy, collects the money and is just chilling in his store. A passersby happened to have seen it all and he went straight for his share. Mr. Kiosk man gave it straight to him, after all it had been paid for. Mr. passersby is so excited, as he squanders his first round of iced cream while running to tell the others. “There’s free iced cream, free iced cream for all!!!” he yells. Many did not believe him, it was simply too good to be true. Some decided to give it a try…it was easy pizzy – all they had to do was head to the kiosk and demand for their iced cream that Mr. influential had paid for…and Bam! they had it…as much as they wanted…
When Jesus died to pay our debt, he did that for the whole world. The whole of humanity. Because it has already been paid for, all you need do is believe that your debt of death has been paid for and place your demand by confessing that He was raised to give you a new life and bam! done. It is that easy, because He already paid.
All of this writing and all of similar things you might have seen on this subject, are people telling you that “Hey! someone already paid for your iced cream, just go place your demand” Your key to living your life to the fullest is in your mouth.
Romans 10:8-10 – “But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word [the message, the basis] of faith which we preach— 9 because if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart a person believes [in Christ as Savior] resulting in his justification [that is, being made righteous—being freed of the guilt of sin and made acceptable to God]; and with the mouth he acknowledges and confesses [his faith openly], resulting in and confirming [his] salvation.
All you need to do is believe that your debt has been paid and confess, making the declaration that what He has made available to you (His salvation, new life, God-class….iced cream) is now yours. It’s that simple. If you want to make this decision, you can follow the prayer below, after the main blog content.
But what can I say? It doesn’t hurt to give this a try. You might be debating about the validity of this but I can tell you it’s real because I have experienced it. I know what my life was before and after I made this decision to receive His gift of salvation. It’s made a world of difference in everything about me. I would be sharing a snippet of that story on the very last day of this 21-blog challenge but till then, I would be sharing the stories of other people who have made this decision. This is their story, my story and could be your story. There’s a higher cause of living. There is a place of fulfillment and meaning. There is an expression of deep,profound love. You can experience it too if you haven’t. Stay tuned for the stories…
If you already made this decision from this post , I’d like to congratulate you and I’d definitely love to hear from you! There is more to know about growing in this new life. You could contact me via DM on (instagram: i__b__k)
The Prayer of Salvation
“O Lord God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus Christ. Your Word says, “…whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21). I ask Jesus to come into my heart to be the Lord of my life.
I receive eternal life into my spirit and according to Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved,” I declare that I am saved; I am born-again; I am a child of God! I now have Christ dwelling in me, and greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world! (1 John4:4). I now walk in the consciousness of my new life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!”
