To have a faith that leads to salvation, it is necessary to turn away from sinning and attachment to self.  Further, it is required to have the obedience to offer all to God.  Believing in Jesus means repentance from sin and self centeredness and relying on Jesus for her future.  This is how a person enter the relationship with the Lord and living out His Lordship over her.  through these believers, His character and power is presented.  Acts 11:26 says that "The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch".  NT calls disciples as Christians. The disciples are those who leave everything behind in order to follow their teacher.  In this regard, most of us are not Christian because we still own too  many things, and because we are not ready to follow the disciples' ways of life.  This cannot be done in a day.  This will be achieved through life long time practice of self-denial and continuously bearing the cross.  Praising one another for Christian virtue is far away from this ideal.  We need to reflect upon what the bible says about discipleship and follow that as it is.

John 16:8 : When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment:"  In order for a believer to repent, the inner work of the holy spirit is critical.  Only He can transform a believer to turn towards God's righteousness. This is how a person can be moved from God's judgment to eternal life.  The most fundamental work of the Holy Spirit is to awake a believer's guilt about sinning and self centeredness.   The person who is under the work of the Holy Spirit realizes how far she is because of her sinful nature and self centeredness, and desires to turn away from those to be saved.  Thus, she longs to obey the Lord to achieve her salvation.  If you still value money, power and comfortable life as equal as your relationship with the Lord, you need to ask the Lord to show you the way to His salvation.  If you serve money as well as God, it is not true state of living our your salvation.

What we need to give God is yourself, what you have trusted in your life and your belongings.  Then, we can truly own Christ and become His bride.  Philippians 3:8:  "What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ"  Hebrew term for knowledge of Christ is Yada, which means experiential knowledge of other person in intimate relationship.  Paul gave up his belonging, knowledge and recognition of others in order to gain this yada relationship with the Lord.  He gave up all he had as if those are his poops.  Even among those who think of themselves as not owning much still have too many attachment to selfhood..  if you have anything that you believe in or rely on more than the Lord, declare in faith that you give those up.  Without self denial, we will never be able to enter the state of dying with the Lord.  Remember when you were born again.  At that time you could give anything to the Lord.  However, as time goes on, you realize now many things we are accumulating for ourselves and not giving up those things for the Lord..  We need to turn from yourself to the Lord.

If you are hesitant to obey the Lord and His command, you are not still yet in the sate of believing in the Lord for your salvation.  Complete repentance, obedience and commitment to the Lord is only possible when the Holy spirit is working inside the believers.  There are three evidences clearly shown among those who are truly saved.  first, they commune with the Lord.  they dwell in the Lord by eating and drinking with him.   They come to have voluntary heart to offer everything to the Lord.  Isaiah 51:11:  "Those the Lord has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away"  This verse describe the state of believers' voluntary commitment.  If you are stingy to support the Lord's ministry, you are bound by the spirit of religiosity.  voluntary commitment is only possible when the Holy spirit assists the believer. the disciples' extra ordinary commitment to follow the Lord, rich offering of the poor believers were not possible without the work of the Holy Spirit.   If you feel still burdened by attending worship and stingy to give mission offering, your christinaity is religion, not in the relationship with
