EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
We love that our Women World Leaders share their special giftings with us. Today, Guest writer/singer/songwriter Sara Sahm shares another song written for our Savior and for you to enjoy.
When I wrote this song, I was studying and trying to truly grasp what it meant to be “saved”.
To be saved is so much more than just avoiding death, we have an eternal home in glory with our Savior. To be saved is to have a 24hr open line to the Creator of heaven and earth, it is knowing you are always loved unconditionally, always. It is to be understood, seen, and heard.
Romans 10:9-13 NIV says, “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”
God’s salvation is right in front of us. “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”. (Ro. v 8) Salvation is not some distant goal; it is a present and a very available blessing. It is as close as our lips and our heart. Not by deeds but by grace.
Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast.”
How many of us still try to earn salvation? A gift is not to be received with the question “what do I owe you?”. A gift is to be received with gratitude and joy. What God desires most is our praise. He knows we are sinners and will never be good enough to earn salvation.
Jesus sacrificed His all for us, even while we were still sinners, His love made a way. His death was the leverage that cracked open the door to freedom and broke eternal chains. Believe in your heart and call on His name! What a wonderful God we serve! Never underestimate the Lord’s love for YOU. Salvation is only a heartbeat and breath away.
Please enjoy this song as you close your eyes and think of your Savior’s love for YOU.
