Paul challenged Peter to stop hypocritical behavior, but ensure that gospel remain accessible for the gentiles. Paul reported, “When I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, “If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews? We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified” (Galatians 2:14-16).
The gospel of Jesus Christ is free for everyone, and anyone can have it at anytime. Ideally, due to human sins, no one is worthy of free salvation given through gospel; however, Christ has made it free for everyone! Hence, all people should maximize their opportunity of salvation to become a child of God. Meanwhile, the process of obtaining salvation is very simple. For anyone to be saved, he or she must confess Jesus Christ as Lord through faith and profession. The scripture explain the process: “…That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10).
Dear God, I have learnt that salvation of Jesus Christ is as simple as “ABC,” therefore I declare my faith in him (Jesus Christ) today. I confess Jesus as Lord, and I accept him as my personal savior. I confess that he is the Son of God and I will serve him from now on, and for the rest of my life. I believe that I am now saved. Glory to God. Hallelujah, Amen!
