Believe in and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/rom.10.9.KJV

We are called by God and His Spirit to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. We can turn from this calling but consider your life as it is now. You are without hope for eternity and in this life you are confused about your purpose. God can clear up the confusion and give you hope and peace through Jesus Christ as your Savior. Salvation is a one time calling but God makes it easy to accept whenever you hear it.

I don’t mean that God only calls you once. But the calling is placed in your heart so that you will feel it until you answer it’s call on your life. The calling of the Spirit of God is unique to each of us. Some of us feel it at a revival at church or at a venue where someone is preaching about the Lord Jesus Christ. Sometimes we are watching a movie which has a story that points our heart and our mind toward salvation through Jesus. God’s touch or His calling on your life is unique not only because it is personal but because He is. God knows you and all of your good points and bad points but He also knows exactly where you would be useful to Him in this life.

What do I mean by “useful to Him”? Consider this modern parable: a man finds a diamond in a field that he is cultivating. It isn’t very big but he gets the bright idea that if he could mine for diamonds he would be rich. So he sells all that he has and goes in search of diamonds, kinda like those men during the gold rush days in the 1800’s. What he didn’t realize was that the field which he sold to someone else was littered with diamonds but he didn’t pause to look around and see them. God knows your worth is far above diamonds and He is our Creator so He knows exactly the abilities that you have because He put them there before you were born. When you give your heart to Jesus, you feel inside that you should be telling others about your Treasure, your salvation through Jesus Christ.

It is not required to be saved because when you believe in Jesus for your salvation and walk away from your old ways…then you will want to let His Light shine forth so others will see it. That is the work and the ability that God placed within you. You have other talents as well and He can use those too. He may even give you more abilities that you didn’t know that you could do. Be sure of your salvation today because that spark of eternal life could flare up so others will see it too.
