Getting credit for some is not always so easy. If you've had bad debts in the past or been bankrupted life is not so straight forward. Walk down any high street and you will see the modern day pawn broker. People need money and many have to borrow it just to survive. There are a myriad of reasons why your credit application can be turned down. The number one reason is a bad credit record. Everyone as heard the phrase "Nothing in life is free." That is true except for one ...Salvation is free! If you want to be saved from the power and consequences of sin, then meet the right requirments and you will hear the word "Approved." But hang on a minute what's this about requirments I thought you said it was free. Yes it's free but you must first BELIEVE its free! Belief is a requirment. Salvation is free but you must believe its free because God wants you to TRUST him. Trust him... but isn't that just more more requirment? Imagine a wedding ceremony with out words or feelings expressed. When we engage in something it involves some level of emotional and intelectual commitment. Its the same with salvation. To be saved you must BELIEVE what Jesus said about himself and TRUST him with your eternal security. Its a bit like putting on a parachute shortly before you jump out of a aeroplane. As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame" Romans 10:11. It doesn't matter how bad your past record has been you CAN receive approval from the Son of God today. Put you trust in him, believe he came to save you and your future security is garanteed. Will you take a step of faith toward the only Saviour today?
