Luke Chapter 9 : 21-30 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 21 But he warned them, and commanded them to tell this to no one,
  • 22 saying, "The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up."
  • 23 He said to all, "If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.
  • 24 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever will lose his life for my sake, the same will save it.
  • 25 For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits his own self?
  • 26 For whoever will be ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed, when he comes in his glory, and the glory of the Father, and of the holy angels.
  • 27 But I tell you the truth: There are some of those who stand here, who will in no way taste of death, until they see the Kingdom of God."
  • 28 It happened about eight days after these sayings, that he took with him Peter, John, and James, and went up onto the mountain to pray.
  • 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face was altered, and his clothing became white and dazzling.
  • 30 Behold, two men were talking with him, who were Moses and Elijah,

  • 21 Jesus, however, strictly charged them not to say this to anyone;
  • 22 he told them that the Son of Man must undergo much suffering, and be rejected by the elders, and chief priests, and teachers of the Law, and be put to death, and rise on the third day.
  • 23 And to all present he said, “If any one wishes to walk in my steps, they must renounce self, and take up their cross daily, and follow me.
  • 24 For whoever wishes to save their life will lose it, and whoever, for my sake, loses his life – that person will save it.
  • 25 What good does it do someone if, when they has gained the whole world, they has lost or forfeited themselves?
  • 26 Whoever is ashamed of me and of my teaching, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them, when he comes in his glory and the glory of the father and of the holy angels.
  • 27 Indeed, I tell you, some who are standing before me will not know death, until they have seen the kingdom of God.”
  • 28 About eight days after speaking these words, Jesus went up the mountain to pray, taking with him Peter, John, and James.
  • 29 As he was praying, the aspect of his face was changed, and his clothing became of a glittering whiteness.
  • 30 And all at once two men were talking with Jesus; they were Moses and Elijah,

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obedience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
