When Is A Man Truly Saved

...when it pleased God

(GALATIANS 1:15-16)

Someone asked, "When is a man truly saved?" Well, my friend, to be saved is more than to believe in one GOD, the demons believe that! It is more than just trembling under the preaching of the Word, Felix did that! It is not only to hold an office in the church, Judas did that! It is not submitting to the ordinance of baptism, Simon Magus did that! It is not only to weep over sin, Esau did that! It is not just respecting the preacher, Herod did that! It is not to keep company with outstanding believers, Demas did that.

To be saved is to know GOD and JESUS CHRIST Whom He hath sent. It is to be a new creature in CHRIST JESUS, regenerated and converted by the power of GOD. It is to believe on CHRIST with the heart and confess CHRIST with the mouth. It is a miracle and deliverance accomplished through the preaching of the gospel and the work of God's Spirit.

When Will A Man Be Saved?

1) He will be saved when it pleases the Lord (GALATIANS 1:15).

2) He will be saved when he bows to and comes under the authority of the LORD JESUS! (ROMANS 10:9-10).

3) He will be saved when he sees the redemptive glory of GOD in the face of CHRIST JESUS. (2 CORINTHIANS 4:5-6).

4) He will be saved when he can see the guilt of his sins before GOD and the sufficiency of CHRIST's life and death to provide him a perfect righteousness and a just atonement (2 CORINTHIANS 5:21).
