Have you ever asked yourself the question why you are saved? Some people like me grew up in the church, and so just continue to go because that was how they were raised. Did something happen in your life that caused you to rethink your status in God? As a child I was given the plan of salvation by my grandmother. She led me into the sinners’ prayer, and I got saved. My family was not in the church at that time but not that long after that my mother joined a local church, and we started going to services. Even though, I had prayed with my grandmother, I still was not really converted. During my childhood I would have constant dreams of falling into a deep black hole. The dreams caused me to start asking God questions, I soon found out that I was not in the place with God that I needed to be. I found out that the black hole in my dreams was indeed hell. As a young child I began to start rededicating my life on a regular basis when the doors of the church were opened in the services. Nobody around me talked to me about what was going on, my pastor was clueless to say the least. God was drawing me closer to Himself, honoring the prayers of my grandmother. After a while I got peace with God and started flying in my dreams instead of falling. The Lord begins speaking to me at a young age and I grew increasingly hunger to know more about Him. Even in all this I still had not changed, you see I was not taught the Word of God in church and my mother did not have bible study with us in our home. I knew very little biblically about God, but I was learning interesting things relationship wise about Him. Eventually, this led to my deliverance from the things of this world. So why did you get saved? You heard my reason, what is your reason for getting saved? Also, if you are saved what are you saved from? Remember I told you at a certain point I still had not changed. When God delivered me, He changed the way I viewed life and what it meant to be saved. I realized that I had been a carnal Christian. You can’t be like the world and Jesus at the same time. We have to accept what Jesus has done for us on the cross and surrender our lives to Him daily. John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Jesus loved us enough to die for us, so we should love Him enough to obey His commands. John 14:15 says If ye love me, keep my commandments. What are Jesus’ commandments? We will look at this in another article, until then ponder on your life before God.
